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.

    What is FUNNY they used a 480 $ MB and a 1,200 $ Chip to run this card with 16 gigs ram. The 4k Monitor was 4.000 $ and for what to play Games that last a few hours now.

    EVGA once again releases a superclocked GTX980Ti with a 10% bump in the base clock and turbo clock for only $30 more. That puts the card into the Titan X category. I always buy EVGA overclocked cards as they are stable as hell, quiet, and manage to control the GPU temperature to keep it at reasonable levels. How inadequate does my EVGA GTX980 superclocked CPU seem now and the 980Ti is way above my “over 10% increase in performance before I upgrade” criteria. As long as I run 2560×1440 at 60 Hz tho, no good reason to upgrade. BUT I WANT ONE!

    Maybe I missed them, but where are the VRAM usage figures?
