Hitman: Absolution is an action-adventure stealth game developed by I/O Interactive and published by Square Enix. It is the fifth entry in the Hitman game series, and runs on I/O Interactive's proprietary Glacier 2 game engine. Before release, the developers stated that Absolution would be easier to play and more accessible, while still retaining hardcore aspects of the franchise. The game was released on 20 November 2012, which is in the 47th week of the year (in reference to the protagonist, Agent 47).
Hitman Absolution performance at 1680 x 1050 is passable thanks to the 38 FPS minimum - we'd prefer an extra couple of FPS in the average department, though. Above that the numbers are a little too low. As for overclocking, though, it's a little weird. While the overall average gets a bit of a boost, the minimum takes a bit of a hit.
