Hitman Absolution numbers look good across the board and you can see at even the highest resolution, the 43 FPS minimum on the HIS R9 270X IceQ X2 Turbo Boost 2GB is impressive. Saying that, though, we must admit the 52 FPS average is a little too low. 1920 x 1200 numbers, though, are absolutely perfect with a 62 FPS minimum and 76 FPS average.

Tomb Raider is extremely intensive and you can see the mid-range cards really do struggle. While we fall short of 60 FPS we're on the hunt for at all resolutions, the fact that we've got a solid 59 FPS with an excellent 44 FPS minimum at 1680 x 1050 means the game is playable.
