The new version of DirectX 12 for the series of computer games Hitman has prompted experts to compare the graphical interface.
A reboot of the Hitman became one of the first games that support DirectX 12 since the release. So for fans of graphics it was a sin not to make a visual comparison of the visual design project Studio IO Interactive on different versions of graphics APIs.
“In this video we compared the performance and visual effects of the Hitman games when using DirectX 11 and DirectX 12 on the PC at maximum settings. For comparison we used the Nvidia GeForce GTX 980. Please note that there is no error there. It seems that Nvidia really does not make much of a difference between DirectX versions, while AMD products demonstrates a significant improvement of the picture,” — said in describing the movie.
The differences demonstrated in the picture to consider only the most sharp-eyed. However, in the network for many months is ongoing controversy about the fact that the architecture of AMD is perfectly suited for the latest graphics API from Microsoft, unlike Nvidia. Be that as it may, it should be noted that DirectX 12 rather increases the efficiency of the graphics card, and does not affect the graphics quality of the game overall.
Implementation support for the new GUI in Hitman for some fans of the game backfired. On the game page in Steam frequent complaints from gamers about the game crash when DirectX 12. In addition, in some cases, the game refuses to apply those or other graphics settings selected by the user.
