Options, benchmark, screenshot comparison


It's possible more will be available at launch, but for now you get a fair seven graphics options, (Shadow Resolution, Texture Quality, SSAO, AA, and more), and 13 if you include standards like Resolution, VSync, and so on.

Keys, for now at least, are not customizable, though mouse sensitivity is, and feels quite natural at default.


Benchmarking shows that at least in this level and for right now, Hitman: Absolution does not scale well; the only notable change in performance occurs on the Low preset, where minimum framerate rises considerably. There are a few months to go before launch, however, so it's possible we'll see some decent scaling come release day.

Screenshot comparison

The screenshots are mostly in line with benchmark results, which is to say there are no drastic changes between the different presets; discounting the Low preset, the most significant contrasts are caused by SSAO.
