Hitman Absolution performance is solid across the board, and while we fall short of the 60 FPS number we want at the highest resolution, the 47 FPS minimum combined with the 59 FPS average means it's playable. The GTX 760, on the other hand, struggles at the highest resolution to give us number we want to see for a playable experience.

Looking at one of our most intensive benchmarks, you can see the Sapphire R9 285 2GB Dual-X OC actually falls behind the R9 280 3GB here. Both cards offer playable numbers at 1680 x 1050, while 1920 x 1200 is just passable thanks to the strong minimum. The GTX 760 is not a good option here as it falls a decent chunk behind both cards at all resolutions.
