AMD does not support Mantle anymore now that standard solutions are around.
Y es I'm aware of this thanks.More exactly, AMD donated Mantle to Khronos, and it will be part of Vulkan. How much penetration Vulkan makes into the gaming trade will be determined in a year or so by the market.

But will cdprojekt's support DX 12 ? and Mantle isn't yet finished.
DX12 is windows 10 only I thought... GuyNwah correct me if wrongIntrigued... howso "not run on the systems the fans have now"?
Yes... but Win10 will be available without charge as a full unlimited license to all non-enterprise users of Win7 or 8, if they upgrade in the first year. (Including pirated copies iirc).
Not really considering "free" to be a barrier to use (if it doesn't stink of course).

DX12 support is likewise not a "given". There has to be a damn good reason, measured in dollars, euros, or zloty, for taking on that much work. A handful of fans wanting it because it is the latest technology is not a compelling reason at all, especially when you consider it will not run on the systems the fans have now.
DX12 and Vulkan aren't yet out, so it's irrelevant what systems people have now. Developers can't release anything like that yet.@Lieste Yes but win 10 is not available right now so fans do not have system that can use dx12 right "now" as he stated... was what I was pointing out
Which might be problamatic for me... I have a valid license BUT I have a streamlined DVD for install and it'd be seen as priated even though I bought a system with win7 hmmmpirated copies will upgrade, but only to a unlicensed version of win10.
Of course if developers have access to APIs (like those who participate in Khronos for example), they can already play around with them in their engines and provide feedback how to improve things. That's what's happening already. But until it's official, they won't release anything of that sort.
So if CDPR are interested, they can participate in Khronos too.
