Hitman 2 PC Performance Review

Using older hardware - R9 380 VS GTX 960

A lot of PC gamers use older graphics hardware, whether it be from the used market at bargain basement prices or as an attempt to get your GPU to last as long as possible before your next upgrade.   

During their time Nvidia's GTX 960 and AMD R9 380 were extremely popular amongst gamers, much like their current-gen counterparts, but these mid-range GCN/Maxwell series cards are starting to show their age, especially on the VRAM front. 

With Hitman 2, moving the game to our medium settings allowed us to maintain 30+ FPS framerates on both graphics cards, which is more than enough to make the game playable and look great. Yes, higher settings look nicer, and 60FPS will feel smoother, but the slow and methodical pace of Hitman makes high framerates largely irrelevant, at least from a gameplay perspective.

Your testresults are quiet unusual, just take a look around. For example Setve from hw undboxed got his vega 56 infront of a 1070ti, yes thats a bit high but way more in line than what you got. I would strongly suggest you to look at your testsetup. Your test is the only one with such a massive deficite for AMD. Also those childish pictures leave a untrustworthy tast behind.Quote

I will have a look the HW Unboxed's findings and see how his test location compares to the one that we used.

We use a location that is much later in the game and represents some of the worst performance that the game can offer. I will look at the game again to see if anything changes, but each graphics card has a clean driver install, so it isn't that.

The mission HW unboxed used appears to be one of the lesser demanding areas, but I will report back when I look into things a little more.Quote

It all depends on the mission. Reviews have never been apples to apples even with the same hardware. Not sure why you expect anything else?

As for the pictures they are so irrelevant that to assume it makes an article untrustworthy is to me quite childish that it bothers someone. I only mention this because you come off as an AMD guy who is upset the vega 56 and the cover article photo both show AMD falling behind. I mean we already know a Vega 56 is slower than a 1070ti, so I again don't know why you expect anything else mate?

Food for thought, maybe Steve's results are a bit off and not WYPs? I would be more suspect a 1070ti lost a Vega 56 than anything.
Not attacking you. Just curious as to why you think the review was bad when it honestly is one of the very few performance reviews on the internet that I found. I looked around as you suggested and found just this article. Nothing else comparing really anything(outside of consoles from Digital Foundry).Quote
