Vulkan (glNext) is based on AMD Mantle

Posted on Friday, March 06 2015 @ 13:28:24 CET by

The Tech Report learned that Khronos' upcoming Vulkan (glNext) API is based on AMD's Mantle. Vulkan standardizes and replaces Mantle, and it will reportedly be very easy to switch from a Mantle rendered to Vulkan. Vukan is a low-level API that completely exposes that GPU is a separate processor, runs asynchronously to the CPU. Full details over here.

AMD's Mantle initiative will be pretty short-lived as it has served its purpose, the firm told developers earlier this week that they now need to focus on DirectX 12 and Vulkan instead.
