    "We are performing a feasibility study to understand when and how we extend Mantle support to *NIX. OpenGL ^HJL"

    So if they don't release code or documentation enough to implement it in the opensource drivers we are likely not going to see mantle on linux till late 2015.

    Open source is a must. And must be early. If they ignore as again, then their loss, they will not be forgiven again.

    The developers of the Nitrous game engine recently puplished a demo, where Mantle is used: Star Swarm Demonstration

    According to their FAQ they have plans to support Steam OS. Well I suppose these plans can't be very serious or advanced yet since Steam OS neither supports DirectX nor Mantle.

    At this point, it would be better if everyone did what Intel's Larrabee was going to do. So no matter what graphics card you owned, the code should be mostly compatible. Given that Nvidia could gain that X86 license as well.

    Well it could be nice to see a nice Opengl port that less us know how Opengl is performing vs Directx.. and if they used Nvidia extensions it could have the same performance as mantle...

    Yes, and likely Nvidia-only
