Hitman DirectX 12 Fury X Benchmarks

 



Hitman DX12

  I've finally been able to get my hands on a DirectX 12 title. Ashes of Singularity was the first DX12 title to feature benchmarks, but it’s still in Early Access at the moment. Ashes of Singularity actually releases on March 31st. Hitman has released with DirectX11 and DX12 support on Day 1. DX11 was available during the Hitman Beta. AMD really showed their strengths in DX11 with this title and now everyone wants to see DX12 results. I’ve been playing the Hitman series for many years and I love the franchise.

  The latest release has been met with criticism across the board. From the “intro price” [14.99], to the episodic releases, to the game not releasing at midnight on March 11th on Steam, Hitman has had plenty of people up in arms. This isn’t the first episodic title I’ve come across so it doesn't bother me as much. There was a game on the PS3 named Siren that originally released in an episodic fashion. With all of that being said Hitman fans can finally rejoice. DirectX 12 has met some criticism, but overall it benefits the future of PC gaming. I’m making this intro longer than it really should be so now I’ll give you what you came for; PC specs and benchmarks.
