Hitman (2016):

Hitman (2016) is a stealth action-adventure game played from a third-person perspective. Hitman (2016) is the sixth iteration of this series and acts as a prequel to the entire series, while also taking part after the events in Hitman: Absolution. The game was developed by IO interactive and published by Square Enix, with a release date for PC in March 2016 for the first part of the episodic content. To deliver the visuals, the game uses a modified Glacier 2 game engine. This title takes advantage of the ability to run in DirectX 12 mode for users who have adopted Windows 10.

Settings:

  • DirectX 12
  • Level Of Detail = High
  • SMAA
  • Texture Quality = High
  • Texture Filter = 16x Anisotropic
  • SSAO = On
  • Shadow Maps = Ultra
  • Shadow Resolution = High

 

 

 

 

Tom Clancy's The Division:

Tom Clancy's The Division faced an uphill battle to become the highest opening day grossing title in Ubisoft's history. Built as an open-world, third-person shooter video game, Ubisoft Massive developed the game with some assistance from Red Star Entertainment for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, with Ubisoft taking care of the publishing. Ubisoft Massive developed and built the Snowdrop game engine specifically for The Divison due to the need for an intelligent engine to manage the dynamic global illumination, destruction, detail, and visual effects.

 

 

Settings:

  • DirectX 12
  • High Preset
  • Shadow Quality = High
  • Post FX AA = Off
  • Temporal AA = Supersampling
  • Snow = Yes
  • Fog = Ultra
  • Anisotropic Filtering = 16x

 

 

 

 

Intel states we can see FPS results of up to 25% faster than 7th Generation products. Gears of War was the test it used, but with my test suite, I did not see performance bumps of 25%. I did see some nice margins over 7th Gen processors, as well as against AMD's Ryzen line in these tests. In the gaming tests, even the Core i7 8400 delivered excellent performance boosts in the games I test with. That's a welcome sight!
