AMD is bundling Hitman with its graphics cards

While Nvidia is apparently set to offer up The Division to its GPU buyers, AMD has a deal of its own up its sleeve. Starting from today, qualifying purchases of some of AMD's graphics cards or even FX-CPUs will come bundled with the latest Hitman game from IO Interactive, which will be released episodically throughout the rest of the year.

Those who pick up an AMD R9 390 or R9 390x will be eligible for a copy of Hitman, as well as those that buy an AMD FX eight-core or six-core processor at participating retailers like Overclockers UK.

The code you get for Hitman will grant you access to all of the episodes released in the next year. You will also be able to take part in the beta for the game, which runs this weekend from the 19th of February until the 22nd.

Hitman will use DirectX 12 hardware known as asynchronous compute engines to help handle heavy workloads, which should help unlock greater performance.

KitGuru Says: Hitman is shaping up to be an interesting title indeed. Are any of you planning on picking up an AMD GPU soon?

Since Arc's launch, Intel's engineers have been hard at work to polish up performance, particularly in DX9 titles. With this new driver, Intel has delivered up to 43 percent better performance in DX9 with smoother frame times too.
