Alienware Area 51: Triad, Tri-SLI GTX 980, Haswell-E
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.
The Hitman: Absolution benchmark tells a somewhat similar story as Bioshock on the previous page. Although the Area 51 outpaced all of the other systems when tested at 2560x1600, its lead was relatively small at that resolution. With the game cranked up to 4K, however, the Area 51 pulls when ahead and crushes our graphics testbed by a significantly margin.
