Sapphire Radeon R9 380X Nitro Video Card Review




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: 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.
