Thief PC system requirements confirmed

Thief is preparing to sneak onto current and next-gen consoles on February 25, but if you're a PC user, you'll want to brace your machine for maximum performance. Eidos Montreal has confirmed the system requirements for the upcoming stealth game, so get your upgrades ready.

The Thief community forums (via VG247) offers the following:

Minimum requirements:

  • Windows Vista with platform update

  • AMD Radeon 4800 series or Nvidia GTS 250 series graphics card with DirectX 10 graphics

  • High-performance dual core CPU or quad core CPU

  • 4GB Memory

  • 20GB of HDD/SSD space

Recommended requirements:

  • Windows 7 or Windows 8

  • AMD Radeon HD/R9 series or better or Nvidia GTX 660 series or better with DirectX 11 graphics

  • AMD FX 8000 series or better / i7 Quad Core CPU

  • 4GB Memory or more

  • 20GB of HDD/SSD space

If it turns out your current rig can't handle these specs, Eidos and AMD might be able to help you out through the AMD's Never Settle Forever offer, which offers free copies of Thief with purchase of a new graphics card.
