Pretend I made a joke about shadows and shaders here and it was really clever.

The release of the Thief reboot hits in just over one month – on February 25th – and while we all wait with no small amount of trepidation, Eidos have come out of the shadows to reveal the game’s PC requirements over on the official site.
Like Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Tomb Raider, the PC version is being built by Nixxes, and a partnering with AMD will allow it to utilise AMD’s Eyefinity multi-display tech. Along with TrueAudio and Mantle, it will no doubt run rather nice on AMD video cards. It does require DirectX 10 at a minimum however, as well as at least 4GB of ram, 20GB hard drive space and a ‘high performance’ dual core CPU or a quad core CPU. In other words, what you’d expect from a triple A title these days.
Away from the minimum specs, the recommended specs are a bit more intensive:
OS: Windows 7 or 8
CPU: AMD FX 8000 series or better / Intel i7 Quad Core CPU
RAM: 4+ GB
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon HD / R9 series or better / Nvidia GTX 660 series or better
DirectX: DirectX 11
HDD/SSD: 20 GB
Will your PC do the game justice? I might need a new CPU by the sounds of it, but I’ve needed one for a while. Mostly though, I just hope the game does its predecessors justice.
