Hitman Absolution numbers look strong across the board, with the HIS R9 290 4GB IceQ X2 Turbo managing to get very playable numbers at all resolutions. At the lower resolutions, you can see we hit that FPS wall that is present under Hitman Absolution.

 

 

Tomb Raider

Looking at the Tomb Raider numbers, you can see that the HIS R9 290 4GB IceQ X2 Turbo manages to come out slightly ahead of the reference card. At the highest resolution, you can see that we don't quite get the average we want. Below 2560x1600, though, you can see that the HIS R9 290 4GB IceQ X2 Turbo offers some fantastic numbers.
