Test 3: Hitman
Hitman’s Glacier engine heavily favors AMD hardware. It’s no surprise; Hitman’s a flagship AMD Gaming Evolved title, complete with a DirectX 12 mode that was patched in after the game’s launch.
Important note: Hitman automatically caps the game’s Texture Quality, Shadow Maps, and Shadow Resolution at medium on cards with 2GB of onboard memory, meaning the EVGA GTX 950 and 750 Ti can’t be tested as High or Ultra settings. As such, we only tested the game at Medium settings for this comparison. Also, while the 4GB XFX Radeon 460 tested today could run the higher detail options, the 2GB reference version would be similarly restricted.
The limited graphical oomph and memory in these cards prevent any of them from seeing a major boost by flipping the DX12 switch. That said, both the GTX 950 and the RX 470 flirt with the 60 fps gold standard at Medium settings, with the GTX 750 Ti once again left in the dust.

XFX Radeon RX 460 (4GB)
While we heartily recommend the Radeon RX 460 in general, XFX's customized 4GB version isn't compelling at this price point.
