Hitman (2016) – Competitive
Hitman 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. For instance, players may utilize long-ranged rifles to snipe a target from a long distance, or they may decide to assassinate the target at close range by using blade weapons or garrote wire. Players can also use explosives, or disguise the assassination by creating a seemingly accidental death. –Wikipedia
Settings used for Hitman
The performance of both the Radeon R9 Nano and the R9 390X are better in Hitman, compared to the GTX 1070, than in any other benchmark or game we tested, which is quite interesting. I am told that Hitman uses asynchronous compute for a couple of the visual effects in the game and that may have something to do with the competitiveness of GCN compared to Pascal.
|GeForce GTX 1070 8GB, Average FPS Comparisons, Hitman (2016)|
|GTX 980||GTX 970||R9 Nano||R9 390X|
This table presents the above data in a more basic way, focusing only on the average FPS, so keep that in mind. The GTX 1070 does very well compared to the GTX 980 and GTX 970, coming in 73% faster than the latter at the higher resolution!
*Looking at the data for our Radeon R9 390X testing at 1920×1080, it appears we are missing the last 10 seconds for some reason. I will check on this and update when I return from a tech event!
