    Anandtech didn't sound too enthusiastic about the TA effects in Thief, but they were impressed with the TrueAudio demo. May not be the best showcase it seems. Mantle uplift seems good though.

    No other game to base it on so far Matt, are you going to install it and experience TWIMTBH? :p

    I'll install it to benchmark later and post some results if i get time, probably won't play it for a while though to test out true audio.

    Thief doesn't have CF support I believe.

    Really? Well that is disappointing :( I though my system would be a good test for Mantle, with my crappy CPU and all.

    Don't take this the wrong way but Thief isn't demanding at all and unless you seriously want to hear the TrueAudio (which by all accounts is also poor), I couldn't understand why people waited to play it. The Bench test is the most demanding aspect of this game and people with CF cards can't run CF with Mantle but can with DX....

    From Anand's Thief review.

    Thief and True Audio combined = Manchester United :D
