Thief is a series of stealth video games in which the player takes the role of Garrett, a master thief in a fantasy/steampunk world resembling a cross between the Late Middle Ages and the Victorian era, with more advanced technologies interspersed. Thief is the fourth title in the Thief series, developed by Eidos Montreal and published by Square Enix on February 25, 2014.

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.

Benchmark Results: On Thief we found the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 reference card had an average benchmark run of 50.64 FPS and the GeForce GTX Titan X averaged 62.79 FPS. The AMD Radeon R9 295X2 scored 72.43 FPS in stock trim, which the overclocked Titan X was able to surpass with a score of 74.18 FPS.

    For some people, and I know this is an old post, are complaining about high idle temps…. the Titan X’s GPU clock will not get reset/turned off/lowered/whatever you call it if you are running windows 10 at 144hz. I dropped mine to 120hz and the GPU clock went down immediately and my idle temp dropped 12-15 degrees. Just a heads up!

    Great review.. interesting to see it is not (YET!) blowing everything out of the water. Developers need time to make use of it though, like anything… still interesting.

    One not so interesting thing was all the pop-up advertising.. quite annoying. Won’t be bothering with this site for reviews anymore.

      What pop-up ads? We have never used pop-up or pop-under advertisements since the site opened in 2002.

        He’s talking about the green text fly outs. I also had an issue when reading this site on an android smartphone. Every time I scrolled past the green keyword text it would pop up an advertising window. Never had this issue on other sites, don’t know what makes this implementation different.

    Why didn’t you guys up the voltage when overclocking?

    • Nathan Kirsch

      mainly just due to time constraints and we wanted to see how far the card could be pushed without adding extra voltage into the mix. Adding voltage decreases the lifespan of the GPU as well, so not everyone wants to do that if they plan on holding onto the card for a number of years. It’s always a matter of when and not if!
