First with DOOM, yesterday with benchmarking software of the Ashes of the Singularity, and now with Hitman, it seems that all the rumors were true that with the arrival of DirectX 12 things will be changed in the market, and this is none other than the domain highlight of AMD against NVIDIA.
This time we have a performance difference between AMD Radeon R9 390 and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970, and therefore we are going with the guys from Digital Foundry, as they have analyzed the latest beta of Triple-A title from Square Enix and IO Interactive, we are talking about Hitman, on both GPUs in real-time performance under, Hitman is another DirectX 12 title.
Hitman: AMD powered GPUs performing better with DirectX 12
The performance difference is too huge, existing up to 28 FPS difference. Under a real environment, the average is usually about 15 FPS, not bad if we remember that the Radeon R9 390 is a refreshed version of Radeon R9 290X which was launched in late 2013.
DirectX 12 demonstrates what AMD needed to take advantage of its graphics cards and FX architecture processors, but NVIDIA has seen the performance of all its graphic cards in DirectX 11, which reinforces the information that the Maxwell architecture would not optimized for this new API, there are also several reports that the company intends to bring forward the release of Pascal as early as possible, since in the first titles of DirectX 12 they are not going to take a good lead with their current-Gen GPUs.
