Hitman 3 update adds ray tracing, Nvidia DLSS, and AMD FSR

Download the latest Hitman 3 update if you want to use ray tracing with a compatible GPU, as Nvidia DLSS and AMD FSR are here to help with the frame rate

Hitman 3 update adds ray tracing, Nvidia DLSS, and AMD FSR: Agent 47 superimposed against a nighttime jungle base background

Each and every Hitman 3 update offers a lot for players to sink their teeth into, from a new single-player mode at the start of the year to VR support in its Year 2 patch notes. The latest release is no different, as those with a compatible graphics card will now be able to see Hitman 3 in all its glory with ray tracing, Nvidia DLSS, and AMD FSR.

Enabling both ray traced reflections and shadows can be quite demanding, especially considering Hitman 3 is already up there in terms of power hungry games. Including Nvidia DLSS is a great move to boost fps on supported GPUs, but you’ll only have access to the first generation of FidelityFX Super Resolution if you can’t run team green’s option, as AMD FSR 2.0 is unavailable here. It only released last week, though, so it might need more time in the oven if it is in the pipeline for Hitman 3.

Intel XeSS is also notably absent despite featuring the game prominently in its marketing campaign for its first-party upscaler. We expect it’ll drop eventually and will likely match the timeline of Intel Arc Alchemist graphics cards, which have been delayed several times already.

Don’t forget to update your GPU drivers alongside your game, with the Radeon Software Adrenalin 22.5.3 and GeForce Game Ready Driver 512.59 both carrying the goods needed for the new features. Here are the rest of the recommended specs for Hitman 3 ray tracing:
