I have huge problems with Hitman 2016. I have a brand new gaming pc with:
-RTX 2070 Super 8gb
-AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
-Windows 10 64-bit
This setup runs all games really well except Hitman. When I play Hitman in DirectX11 mode, I get so bad framerate drops that it’s unplayable. In Paris for example my fps can go to 30-40 fps in the worst places even in medium-low settings.
In DirectX 12 mode I get a great and smooth framerate that doesn’t drop like in DX11 but unfortunately it has micro-stutter that makes the game unplayable after a while. First it will play without any problems at all but as time passes by, the stuttering will make the game progressively worse until it finally makes it unplayable. I would say it takes about 30 min to 1 hour to reach this state. And yet Hitman is the only game that does this to me. I play several demanding games but none of them have these kinds of problems so I don’t believe the problem is in my hardware
I disabled all unnecessary background apps, some Windows 10 security features and my Antivirus to see if they conflict with the game but those things didn’t solve it. I have reached a dead end now. I have tried all possible solutions I could think of and what was suggested to me on the Steam forums but to no avail. And now they say this issue sounds so bad I should just contact somebody from IO Interactive directly. I’m getting desperate because I don’t know what to do anymore. The micro-stuttering has something to do with DX12 obviously because it doesn’t happen in DX11 mode
