Hitman

Hitman’s Glacier engine heavily favors AMD hardware—the game is, after all, a flagship AMD Gaming Evolved title—not that it matters here. That said, GeForce cards themselves hold their own. We test in both DirectX 11 and DirectX 12, with SSAO disabled.

The GTX 1080 Ti handily clears 60fps here as well, with an extra boost in DirectX 12. And look at that: Nvidia’s new champion delivers nearly 20 more frames per second than the GTX 1080. That’s good for a 25 percent increase over the GTX 1080 at 4K. Hot damn.
