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 general performance trend we've seen throughout our testing to this point plays out again in the Hitman: Absolution benchmark. Whether in single-card or dual-card SLI configurations, the GeForce GTX 780 outruns the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition and GeForce GTX 680, and trails the GeForce GTX Titan.

Save for one major incident with the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition, frame pacing / frametimes with the single-GPU configurations was nice and smooth.

The GeForces continued to smoothly deliver frames when tested in SLI mode, but the Radeon HD 7970 CrossFire setup showed some major peaks and valleys in frametime which hindered the smoothness of this game's animation.

Once again, we should mention, that AMD is working on driver to address frame pacing issues with CrossFire configurations, but it's not ready for prime time just yet.
