RX 470 Hitman And Ashes Of The Singularity DX12 Performance

The latest Hitman title for 2016 once again follows Agent 47, a genetically-enhanced, cold-blooded assassin, who finds himself at the center of new missions scatted about Central Europe, but not before some drama in an ICA training facility some 20 years before the events of 2012's Hitman: Absolution.

Ashes tells almost the same story as Hitman. In this DirectX 12 test, the RX 470 annihilates the GeForce GTX 960 and GTX 950, and hangs tight with the GeForce GTX 970.
