Hitman Absolution

While Hitman Absolution performance is extremely strong across the board, it unfortunately suffers from that FPS wall that we typically see at almost all resolutions. The only time we don't see it hit that wall is at 2560x1600. Even then, though, we're scoring just shy of it with a 90 FPS average.

 

 

Tomb Raider

 

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Tomb Raider numbers are fantastic across the board, and our heavily overclocked Sapphire R9 290X Vapor-X OC puts out an impressive 47 FPS minimum and 70 FPS average at the highest resolution.

 

This is a strong average compared to the cards that sit closest to it, with the HIS offering scoring a 61 FPS average and the ASUS GTX 780 falling short of that 60 FPS number with a 52 FPS average.
