Hitman: Absolution Performance

Hitman: Absolution follows Agent 47, a cold-blooded assassin, who takes on his most dangerous contract to date. Betrayed by those he once trusted - and now hunted by the police - he suddenly finds himself at the center of a dark conspiracy and must embark on a personal journey through a corrupt and twisted world. We tested the game at multiple resolutions, with all in-game options set to their maximum values and global illumination and 4X anti-aliasing enabled.

Hitman: Absolution


The performance trend in Hitman Absolution looks much like Sleeping Dogs. The GeForce GTX 780 Ti SLI setup was fastest at the lower resolution, but the Radeon R9 295X2 pulls ahead at 2560x1600 and 4K. The delta at 4K is rather large too.

All of the multi-GPU setups have somewhat erratic frame pacing in Hitman Absolution, but the framerates are high-enough for it not to matter here.
