Hello!

So AMD Mantle is out, you can get it here. Just wondering if we would see anything for cgminer or any improvements in hashing speed.

It's AMD's new thing. It's supposed to "boost" FPS in games etc. Just click "Windows 8.1 / Windows 8 / Windows 7 (64-bit)" or select your graphics card and scroll down and you should see Catalyst V14.1 Beta.

I've got a friend playing BF4 with it right now, he says the FPS is still the same. Although maybe that'll be a different story for mining. But then again maybe it's what people are saying it was going to be; to help crappier processors and actually do nothing.

I heard that all those new drivers are not good for mining, can anyone confirm that?

I doubt the Mantle drivers will do anything for you in things that aren't designed to take advantage of it.  Isn't it a replacement for DirectX 11 for rendering?  I remember when there was a big push to upgrade to dx10 from dx9 because dx9 could only handle so many drawcalls per frame before performance really took a hit and dx10 upped the limit.  Supposedly Mantle does the same thing so that you can have alot more geometry on the screen without the huge perf hit.
