Hitman to use DX12 and feature Async Compute


The system requirements for IO Interactive’s upcoming Hitman title are below, showing that the game requires 8GB of system memory a quad core CPU and a minimum of a GTX 660 or HD 7870. 

This title is an episodic title, meaning that this game will be sold on a level by level basis, with the first episode releasing on March 11th and with the final episode being expected in holiday 2016 or early 2017.  

This year’s Hitman game is confirmed to be compatible with DirectX 12 and will be making heavy use of Asynchronous shaders, and should be a great showing of what DirectX 12 can offer in terms of performance improvements over DirectX 11.
