AMD has just partnered with the IO Interactive, for the best possible implementation of the new DirectX 12 with the Async Compute Engines on their upcoming action-shooter, the Hitman.
Hitman To Feature DirectX12 Async Compute
The DirectX 12 reportedly works better on the AMD graphical processing unit devices with the help of Async Compute Engines. It means that the new Hitman is now a part of AMD’s Gaming Evolved program and will be having better performance on AMD’s hardware.
Check out the official statement of AMD regarding the matter from today’s conference below;
AMD is once again partnering with IO Interactive to bring an incredible Hitman gaming experience to the PC. As the newest member to the AMD Gaming Evolved program, Hitman will feature top-flight effects and performance optimizations for PC gamers.
Hitman will leverage unique DX12 hardware found in only AMD Radeon GPUs—called asynchronous compute engines—to handle heavier workloads and better image quality without compromising performance. PC gamers may have heard of asynchronous compute already, and Hitman demonstrates the best implementation of this exciting technology yet. By unlocking performance in GPUs and processors that couldn’t be touched in DirectX 11, gamers can get new performance out of the hardware they already own.
AMD is also looking to provide an exceptional experience to PC gamers with high-end PCs, collaborating with IO Interactive to implement AMD Eyefinity and ultrawide support, plus super-sample anti-aliasing for the best possible AA quality.
This partnership is a journey three years in the making, which started with Hitman: Absolution in 2012, a top seller in Europe and widely critically acclaimed. PC technical reviewers lauded all the knobs and dials that pushed GPUs of the time to their limit. That was no accident. With on-staff game developers, source code and effects, the AMD Gaming Evolved program helps developers to bring the best out of a GPU. And now in 2016, Hitman gets the same PC-focused treatment with AMD and IO Interactive to ensure that the series’ newest title represents another great showcase for PC gaming!
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was the first game which announced inclusion of DirectX 12 in the game, while it is reported that the Rise of the Tomb Raider may work with DirectX 12 after an update as the game’s launcher includes option of DX12, which we had reported earlier. Stay tuned for more updates!
