MSI RX 480 Gaming X 8G Testing:

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt:

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is the final chapter of Geralt of Rivia's story, taking him to the Northern Realms on a more personal mission. Developed by CD Projekt RED and powered by REDengine 3, this RPG features an engrossing story and a wealth of discoveries across a diverse landscape, full of monsters, bandits, and jaw-dropping vistas.


  • DirectX 11
  • Ultra Preset





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.


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






In The Witcher 3, MSI's RX 480 Gaming X 8G performs in the same ballpark that the GTX 1060 plays in across all three resolutions. Overclocking both cards results in a similar comparison. You can get through Witcher 3 comfortably at 1920 x 1080, but at 2560 x 1440, even when overclocked, the card delivers just over 30 FPS. In Hitman (2016), MSI's RX 480 is delivering above 30FPS even at 3840 x 2160.
