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 is really strong across the board, and thanks to an FPS wall, you can see that the performance of the 290 is quite similar to the R9 290X 4GB at almost all resolutions.

 

Because the FPS wall is also hit later on the AMD offerings then the NVIDIA ones, you can see that we're able to get a decent lead on even the heavily overclocked GTX 780 3GB Lightning at all resolutions.
