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 numbers look good across the board with excellent minimums being seen. We'd prefer the 2560 x 1600 average to be a little higher, but with a strong minimum, we're not as worried about the 50 FPS average.

 

Compared to the NVIDIA offerings, you can see that performance is actually stronger than the GTX 770, due to an FPS wall being hit at the lower resolutions.
