Hitman Absolution sees the GIGABYTE R9 280 WINDFORCE 3GB OC continue to perform well across the board. At the highest resolution, we do see the card fall just short of that 60 FPS average, but considering our minimum is 48 FPS, we'd say the overall playability of the game is great.

 

You can also see that we manage to come out ahead of the GTX 770 due to the fact it hits that FPS wall quite early.

At 1680x1050, we can see that the GIGABYTE R9 280 WINDFORCE 3GB OC puts out a solid minimum and average. Heading north, we can see that the 1920x1200 minimum is strong, but the average falls just a little short of where we'd like it to be. With 1920x1200 being close, 2560x1600 isn't an option.
