The WCCFTech crew have posted more info from Richard Huddy's presentation at PDXLAN. AMD's Chief Gaming Scientist said the public Mantle SDK will be out soon and that the company is encouraging Intel and NVIDIA to use the API as they see fit.

What’s perhaps more thrilling is that AMD has stated that both Nvidia and Intel are free to use the API as they please. In fact Richard Huddy encouraged both Nvidia and Intel to do so. He stated that AMD will not ask for licensing fees or impose any such restrictions. According to the Gaming Scientist, AMD’s welcoming its competitors to adopt Mantle simply because it offers a better experience for developers and most importantly gamers.
