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).
While Hitman Absolution manages to see strong minimums at 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200, the average in the latter resolution is a little too low. While the 56 FPS average at 1680 x 1050 is also below that 60 FPS number we're always-on the hunt for, the fact that our minimum is 45 FPS means that overall the game play would be very smooth. Against the AMD R7 260X, you can see we manage to sneak just ahead of it at all resolutions.
