Intel approached AMD to access Mantle

It looks like Intel might be looking to adopt AMD's Mantle tech, will Nvidia follow Suit?

Seen this a while ago it's more that they are going to just have a play in their labs.

Though if Intel decided to support mantel it could shift the industry away from directx and to an open standard and thats good for everyone.

Yes, everyone should use the same, open standards because it makes development and innovation easier. All of these different platforms/engines/apis just get in the way.

Yeah, and if Mantle comes to Linux it will be very likely for others to adopt mantle, OpenGL will no longer be the only game in town. And if Intel Adopt Mantle Nvidia will have to follow, if well over half the GPUs out there support it Nvidia can't just sit there and ignore it.

Intel may also need all the performance they can get to try and beat AMD's APUs, afterall the APUs are already better for gaming, even without mantle. With it there is no contest.

I dont see why AMD will hold anything to ransom,intel cpu's have has AMD technology in them for over a decade (x86-64bit instruction set)

If AMD gain Intel's support for mantle, more and more devs will support it, which will lower CPU overhead for more games. AMD don't need to have Intel to pay them to make it worthwhile.

Also if Intel and Linux support forces Nvidia to use Mantle it will be an even more Major Victory.

It brings alot of positive publicity to AMD and it doesn't benefit most intel cpus very much at the moment.
