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.

The new GeForce GTX 770 cards once again outrun the GeForce GTX 680 according to the Hitman Absolution benchmark, but they can't quite keep pace with the Radeon HD 7970. At the higher resolution, however, SLI appears to scale a bit better and the GeForce GTX 770 SLI setup is able to overtake the Radeon HD 7970 CrossFire setup.

With the sole exception of one huge spike in the Radeon's frametimes, all of the single-GPU configurations perform well in this game and consistently deliver frames to the screen

The SLI configurations didn't suffer from any frame pacing issues either, but the same can't be said for the Radeon HD 7970 CrossFire setup. Frametimes were much more erratic with the CrossFire rig in this game.
