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).

With the second card, you can see we hit an FPS wall at all resolutions. While we're never happy about a FPS wall, with a minimum of 84 FPS, and an average of around 100 FPS, this isn't one we're worried about. This is some excellent FPS, making Hitman: Absolution playable at all resolutions.
