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 when overclocking is interesting with the ASUS R9 280X 3GB getting a drop in performance with our strong manual overclock.

 

The good news is it's not a massive drop in performance and you can see across the board it continues to have very strong performance at all resolutions, with great minimums and a strong average FPS.
