Performance Thoughts

 

4K - Ultra Preset

 

If you want to play Hitman 2 maxed out at 4K you're going to need NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, with the RTX 2080 Ti FE hitting 63FPS average and the faster, custom MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti LIGHTNING Z pushing 69FPS average. AMD's fastest Radeon VII doesn't begin to come close with just 47FPS average, 2FPS faster than the previous-gen GTX 1080 Ti with 45FPS average.

1440p - Ultra Preset

 

NVIDIA starts the party off at 2560x1440 with 63FPS average on the RTX 2060, with both of AMD's Radeon RX Vega cards handling over 60FPS average with the RX Vega 64 sitting at 72FPS. The previous-gen GTX 1080 Ti pushes 77FPS average while the TITAN Xp is 7FPS faster at 84FPS. AMD's fastest Radeon VII scores much better here with 85FPS, just 6FPS shy of the RTX 2080 Ti and its 91FPS average at 1440p.

1080p - Ultra Preset

 

Most of the enthusiast cards were getting close to 100FPS in Hitman 2 at 1080p Ultra, with the MSI GeForce RTX 2080 Ti LIGHTNING Z the only card in our stack of 20 to hit 100FPS average, the RTX 2080 Ti FE was at 97FPS. Radeon VII does well here with 95FPS average, the same as the RTX 2080 while the RX Vega 64 sits well with 92FPS, scoring the same as the GTX 1080 Ti. You can use a GTX 1060 here for some 1080p60 action which is not damn bad at all, and the hella-cheap RX 570 pushes 62FPS average here, too.
