I have a 7950, does this mean that for future games the mantle probably won't be taken advantage of on my card?

GCN 1.0 and GCN 1.1 cards are supported on initial release, although 1.1 cards will see the biggest boosts. That card is GCN 1.0.

Performance will increase for your card as drivers and code gets better. So don't fret, your card will work with mantle for a while yet.
