Thief PC Requirements

Posted by Valerie Bourdeau

Important Update Regarding Mantle and TrueAudio

THIEF is a showcase for the awesome gaming performance offered by the PC and we’ve worked hard with AMD to accomplish that, by collaborating on the implementation of several PC-specific features. This includes AMD TrueAudio technology, AMD CrossFire™ technology, AMD Eyefinity multi-display technology and more. As you know, THIEF will also be one of the first games to ship that takes advantage of AMD’s Mantle graphics API.

We’re extremely proud of the work we’ve done with AMD to make the PC version of THIEF a stand-out, definitive experience although we have a little more work to do to accommodate all of these new PC-specific features - we are busy working on a patch to support AMD’s Mantle and TrueAudio technologies that is scheduled for March. We’re confident this patch will ensure the best and fastest THIEF experience for AMD Radeon™ customers. We’re sorry we couldn’t bring this to you sooner – although we will use this time to bring you the very best experience possible and will let you know when the patch is ready.

We’re happy to say that the AMD CrossFire™ technology and AMD Eyefinity multi-display technology will be fully functional when THIEF launches on the 25th February in North America and 28th February in Europe and other associated territories.

System Requirements

Even with the advent of next-gen consoles, for many old-school fans, Thief will always be most at home on the PC. To ensure the best possible experience on the platform, we've teamed up once again with the pros at Nixxes, who previously worked on the PC version of Deus Ex: Human Revolution and last year's Tomb Raider.

Now that we're done tinkering and optimizing every aspect of the game, we can finally announce the minimum and recommended system requirements.

It's good to see the latest blogs here. I never expect this here. I think these are some basic requirements. I don't have much knowledge about this and so I wish to know more. Add more contents here. cheap cable and internet packages


I have to say... Thief is one of the best first-person stealth video game ever. It's all great fun. I'm mostly a mobile phone person, but recently have been exploring more games on PC like toon blast (its okay), mobile legends, keyword tools and then search "best pc games" - it's way more targeted.
