THIEF System Requirements - Mantle Support via Post-Release Patch

The Eidos Montreal blog offers system requirements for the THIEF reboot that's due for release next week (thanks DSOGaming). Though the post says "THIEF will also be one of the first games to ship that takes advantage of AMD’s Mantle graphics API," the paragraph that follows contradicts this, saying support for AMD's Mantle and TrueAudio technologies will come via a patch next month sometime, though "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." Here are the system requirements, which include a lengthy appendix of specific PC features the stealth/action game will support:
