We ran Thief with the image quality settings set at normal with VSYNC disabled.

Thief appears to be running on the six physical cores of the Intel Core i7-4960X processor and averages around 17-24% CPU usage from what we were able to tell from the CPU utilization meter that is built into the Windows 8.1 task manager.

    comparing the flagship amd card to a 970? lol try it against a 980ti or a Titan and watch it get smoked.

      3.5 GB of VRAM, 32 ROPS, nVeediots = liars.

      390/x are not flagship cards Here get educated https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvV1KgGZtMo

      The 390X is not a “flagship” card. It is the upper-medium choice currently. The flagships are the “Fury” and “Fury X” cards which are more expensive and which certainly can go head-to-head with a 980ti in scenarios where no more than 4 GB VRAM is required. Their weak point is the 4 GB limit currently imposed by the stacked HBM VRAM. Even in spite of this the Fury X performs better at 4K and worse at 1080p than the 980ti.

    OMG.
    This website compares an OC model against an ITX nvidia card. Benchmark games where AMD is strong, and with high resolutions where the 8GB of video memory is used. Then you display a total of about 10% more performance with all that and despite being 100$ more expensive you award the card? WTF LEGITreviews? LMAO.
