With Hitman having support for DX12, we can expect to see better performance, mostly thanks to the improved multithreaded support, and increased performance for CPU-bound instructions. PC Gamer's slide image said that DX12 will provide Hitman with:

  • better multithreading
  • increased performance where CPU bound
  • better experiences for laptop gamers
  • asynchronous compute on AMD cards for significant performance gains
  • early days but we will continue expanding and improving on the Dx12 experience in future releases
