Is the audio supposed to be choppy and the video a blank black screen?

Just change the resolution and change it back.  Should fix it.

Wish I would have watched this before trying to play around with the 14.1 Beta. Have 3 290s and I was not able to get Mantle working with either BF4 or Star Swarm. Wasted a ton of time playing around with it before giving up.

A bunch of non-standardized stuff that works on ONE game...sort-of...and nothing else.
AMD=over-promise but under-deliver.
I`ll stick with DX

19:00 "This is not something that AMD can implement on driver level it has to be on the engine level"

I thought Star Citizen was going to support Mantle even though Cryengine doesn't "out of the box".
