IO Interactive has had a lot of success with their Hitman franchise, with ongoing post-launch support for their latest release in the series which now includes new content for Year Two. With that, the developers teased ray tracing was finally coming, and now we have an official release date along with the minimum and recommended specs.

Ray tracing is officially coming to Hitman 3 on May 24th. Specifically, H3 will be getting ray traced reflections and ray traced shadows, as well as official support for adaptive supersampling techniques like Nvidia DLSS and AMD FSR (1.0) to help with those frame rates. However, the official specs seem to be pretty demanding even with upscaling enabled, especially for AMD hardware oweners...

So let's dive in and take a look at the official Hitman 3 PC ray tracing system requirements...

Hitman 3 Standard specs

Hitman 3 minimum system requirements

Hitman 3 recommended system requirements

(*One of the requirements listed only a single brand of hardware, so we've selected a similar AMD equivalent hardware based on the description in square brackets)

Hitman 3 Ray Tracing specs

Hitman 3 Ray Tracing minimum system requirements - 1080p/Medium RT/Supersampling: Performance

Hitman 3 Ray Tracing recommended system requirements - 1440p/High RT/Supersampling: Balanced

Hitman 3 VR specs

You will need a Core i7-4790 or Ryzen 5 1600 processor coupled with either a GTX 1070 or RX Vega 56 graphics card in order to run the Hitman 3 recommended system requirements. This will deliver around 60fps performance on High graphics settings at 1080p resolution. Recommended amount of RAM is 16GB.

Hitman 3 needs a GTX 660 or HD 7870 GPU to play on Low graphics settings, paired with a Core i5-2500K or Phenom II X4 940 CPU to reach the minimum system requirements. This likely then achieves around 30fps at 1080p resolution. Minimum amount of system memory is 8GB.

Overall, looking at the specs above, Hitman 3 requires around a 6 year old PC in order to play at the recommended settings.

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Hitman 3 System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarks and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Hitman 3 GPU benchmark chart and we also have a Hitman 3 Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.

Too bad the reviews on Steam are garbage (overpriced for the content you get, the deluxe edition is an outrageous joke for the money, people having crashes, always-online "single player" with flaky servers, etc). No wonder they went a year with EGS to get the cash and bank on blind purchases. And it took them a year and a half AFTER the "launch" to add RT they promised..? Ooof...
