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

This might be an interesting trend we are seeing with the RX 480 – it is definitely coming out strongly ahead in the DX12 titles when compared to the GeForce GTX 970. At 1080p, the RX 480 is more than 30% faster than the GTX 970 and dead even with the Radeon R9 390!
As crank up the resolution, that gap only widens for the RX 480; it's now 41% faster than the GTX 970 with very smooth and consistent frame times.
