NVIDIA competes with Mantle with its latest drivers

AMD has found significant performance increases through its Mantle tech, which gives games more-direct access to the GPU, rather than going through APIs like OpenGL and DirectX, which can be bottlenecked by CPUs. The approach is being adapted for DirectX 12, which promises to be a low-level "console-like" API that also enables devs to "fully exploit the GPU."

Of course, DX12 won't be fully deployed until next year. That isn't stopping NVIDIA from trying to offer its own solution to compete with Mantle.

GeForce GTX TITAN Z features 5,760 processing cores, will cost $3000

Nvidia's newest graphics card is not for everyone. In fact, it will cost $3000. But, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang would argue that it's a terrific deal, given that it's about 50 cents per processor.

The GeForce GTX Titan Z includes two Kepler GPUs, totaling 5,760 processing cores, and 12GB of dedicated frame buffer memory. According to Nvidia, it's "engineered for next-generation 5K and multi-monitor gaming." It may be a bit of overkill for everyday use.
