Hitman 3 will receive a new patch today, bringing ray tracing, Nvidia DLSS, and AMD FSR to the popular title. Announced at Computex 2022, Nvidia stated DLSS is coming to Hitman 3 and F1 22, with more on the horizon. Nvidia’s DLSS will bring opaque reflections, transparent reflections, and ray-traced ambient occlusion into Hitman 3, while also helping out with performance across the board.

The new patch, known as 3.110, will help Hitman 3 run smoothly with ray tracing and IO Interactive has released a minimum and recommended hardware requirements spec.

Minimum Hardware Requirements

  • NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 2060 SUPER or AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT
  • Intel Core i5 10600K or AMD Ryzen 5 5600X
  • 8 GB RAM
  • Recommended settings:
  • Resolution: 1080p
  • Adaptive Supersampling Technique: NVIDIA DLSS or AMD FSR
  • Adaptive Supersampling Quality: Performance
  • Reflection Quality: Medium

Recommended Hardware Requirements

  • NVIDIA GEFORCE RTX 3070 or AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT
  • Intel Core i7 10700K or AMD Ryzen 7 5800X
  • 16 GB RAM
  • Recommended settings:
  • Resolution: 1440p
  • Adaptive Supersampling Technique: NVIDIA DLSS or AMD FSR
  • Adaptive Supersampling Quality: Balanced
  • Reflection Quality: High

IO Interactive stated “Realtime ray tracing arrives for our PC players with our 3.110 patch and will bring higher quality reflections and shadows to the World of Assassination. Through HITMAN 3, all locations in the World of Assassination will benefit from this new feature.”

“Ray tracing the detailed environments of HITMAN 3 is quite demanding on the GPU. To get the best experience it’s important to select graphics quality settings that match your installed GPU. 

Ray tracing can be enabled from the Graphics menu under Options in the main menu of HITMAN 3.  Here you’ll find separate toggles for enabling ray traced reflections and shadows.  When ray tracing is enabled, the Reflection Quality options appears and here you can control the reflection quality. Ray tracing must be enabled before you start a mission.

In general, for lower end hardware we recommend using low or medium Reflection Quality.  Lowering reflection quality can greatly improve performance, but results in reflections with fewer details and occasional popping of small objects.”

Nvidia said games that feature DLSS, or those about to receive it include:

  • Raji: An Ancient Epic
  • Vampire: The Masquerade – Swansong
  • Turbo Sloths
  • Warstride Challenges
  • Deep Rock Galactic
  • LEAP
  • Ghost
  • Loopmancer
  • Hydroneer
  • Propnight

There are now around 250 games that feature Nvidia’s ray tracing capabilities, which has doubled since Computex 2021, and gaming has never looked so good.
