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 sees a slight performance increase at the highest resolution, but you can pretty much see we're hitting an FPS wall with the reference-clocked card. As we've mentioned in the past, we're never happy about an FPS wall. But looking above, you can see that we hit that FPS wall at a much later stage than what our NVIDIA cards do.
