    AMD's attitude does not make much sense - they are locking the specs of that API against GCN with no intention for input from other architectures. This gives me only mild hopes of any further Mantle adoption. It is not like AMD going to intel and nvidia and saying, hey D3D sucks a huge ass, GL sucks two smaller asses, let's implement an API that will suck less.

    I bet if AMD released all specs and NVIDIA wanted to join, they'd have it implemented in their Linux driver a year before we see anything from AMD on Linux.

    A small correction: Intel expressed interest.

    But after this

    "I know that Intel have approached us for access to the Mantle interfaces, et cetera," Huddy said. " And right now, we've said, give us a month or two, this is a closed beta, and we'll go into the 1.0 [public release] phase sometime this year, which is less than five months if you count forward from June. They have asked for access, and we will give it to them when we open this up, and we'll give it to anyone who wants to participate in this."
    they will have moved on I guess.

    When You actually, read the article, it mention several attempts on Intel part to get Mantle specs. With no definite answer for outcome (but that may be intended FUD..), it paints a bit different story.

    Its not so much Intel + AMD cooping, as Intel favoring OGL/DX cause they can participate in their creation.
