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: The EVGA GeForce GTX 960 SSC 4GB video card averaged ~81 FPS, but the Sapphire Radeon R9 380X Nitro was able to average ~86 FPS! The minimum frame rate was above 60 FPS on both the GTX 960 and R9 380X at 1080P resolution.

Benchmark Results: Nothing out of the ordinary here, but you can see how the GeForce GTX 960 and Radeon R9 380X are pretty close to one another when it comes to gaming performance in Thief.

      Could have been issues with whatever drivers they were using. Whenever I see results that are that far out of whack, I usually suspect that the tester is using early, pre-release drivers that came with the card rather than the most recent ones that can be found online. ATi/AMD is notoriously bad with programming drivers for their cards which is why DX12 being less driver dependent is a godsend for AMD fans.
