According to results, Star Swarm's DirectX 12 and Mantle are offering about the same FPS (frames-per-second) on AMD's Radeon cards, with Mantle offering a slight performance edge.

Nvidia's GeForce GPUs also significant benefits from DirectX 12, though the improvement over DX11 is smaller, a behavior that should be attributed to the way Radeons handle Star Swarm's DX11 code path.
