Hitman (2016) is a third-person stealth video game in which players take control of Agent 47, a genetically enhanced, superhuman assassin, travelling to international locations and eliminating contracted targets. As in other games in the Hitman series, players are given a large amount of room for creativity in approaching their assassinations. The game is being released in stages, which hasn’t proved too popular with a large audience.
We test with many of the settings maximised, SSAO is disabled however as I found it causes some crashing. I have to say that Hitman is a little unstable at times under the best of situations, but we managed to get it running well enough to benchmark. The built in benchmark is very flaky indeed however, so real world runs had to be used.
At Ultra HD 4k the RX 480 outperforms the Asus GTX980 Strix, averaging 41 frames per second. When we overclock the core to 1,375mhz the RX 480 pushes ahead of the Titan Z, averaging 44 frames per second. The Nvidia GTX970 is some distance behind.
