Thief System Requirements

The Eidos Montreal website now offers the system requirements for Thief, the upcoming return to the stealth/action series:

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.

Minimum System Requirements
OS:
Windows Vista with platform update
CPU: High-performance dual core CPU or quad core CPU
RAM: 4 GB
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon 4800 series / Nvidia GTS 250
DirectX: DirectX 10
HDD/SSD: 20 GB

Recommended Specs
OS:
Windows 7 or 8
CPU: AMD FX 8000 series or better / Intel i7 Quad Core CPU
RAM: 4+ GB
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD / R9 series or better / Nvidia GTX 660 series or better
DirectX: DirectX 11
HDD/SSD: 20 GB

We've partnered up with AMD to leverage the advanced capabilities of Radeon graphics processors, including AMD's Eyefinity multi-display technology, TrueAudio, Mantle API, and state-of-the-art DirectX 11 rendering for the best image quality on PC. If that's given you an urge to upgrade your rig, be sure to check out AMD's Never Settle Forever offer. You could get Thief for free with the purchase of a brand new graphics card!

You can also preorder the Master Thief Edition on Steam or your favorite digital download service. Created especially for the PC, it includes a bunch of digital bonuses - comic book, art book, soundtrack and a booster pack of items to speed up your progress in the game.

Discuss PC technology at length with other hardware afficionados on the forum, or join us on Facebook and Twitter!

Out of the Blue

I had a frustrating experience yesterday with my appointment with the doctor to look at my shoulder, as I couldn't actually find him. He works out of Manhattan, but has occasional hours at an office that is easier to get to from here to save at least one trip into the city for this, but I was unable to locate the office, and this end-of-day appointment was after the receptionist left, so there was no one to answer my call. I was looking forward to getting the ball rolling on this process, so it's aggravating to remain at square zero, but what can you do? Mother Nature is doing her best to help, as the huge dumping of snow she's dumping on us right now will provide plenty of physical therapy in the form of shoveling.
