Hitman: Absolution

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 proved to be somewhat of a strong point for the Asus Radeon R9 270 DirectCU II. In this game, the card was able to outpace even the GeForce GTX 760 at the lower resolution and it was significantly faster than the GeForce GTX 660 across the board.

Save for the entry-level Radeon HD 7790, there were no major frame time-related issues to report in this game. All of the mainstream cards showed very little frame time variation throughout the run.
