Performance: Hitman, Metro and Thief

As 47, a killer for the International Contract Agency (ICA), you have a very dangerous, but action-packed life. The Hitman franchise has been winning praise from critics throughout multiple games, of which Hitman: Absolution is the latest. When running this game’s benchmark, we set AA to 4X and pump the Quality Level settings to Ultra, making for a grueling gaming test.

Hitman is a tough customer and we run the benchmark at some of its highest settings. The game proved to be too much for the laptop, bringing its framerate down to 26.41. You’ll need to go for middle-of-the-road settings for better play in this game.

Metro: Last Light

The system also struggled with Metro: Last Light, but given the high settings, that’s not surprising. It can handle the game when you lower the settings a bit.

We’ve just recently added the popular Thief to our benchmarks. Because we don’t yet have enough data from other systems for comparison, we tested the Dell Inspiron 15 7559 at multiple resolutions.

The story here is the same as with the other benchmarks: The laptop struggles to hit playable framerates when the settings are high. But the Geforce GTX 960M is no chump – if you opt for midrange settings, you can enjoy gaming with the laptop.
