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
One of the "feathers" in the cap for AMD at the mainstream price point, Hitman running in DX12 mode runs nearly perfectly on the Titan X. Performance tops out over 100 FPS on average, beating out the GTX 1080 by 17% and the AMD Fury X by 37%. Compared to previous games, the Fury X is definitely more competitive, an indication that the DX12 performance advantages are at least helping.
At 4K things separate a bit; the Titan X is 25% faster than the GTX 1080 and 65% faster than the Fury X.
