HITMAN ABSOLUTION follows Agent 47®, a cold blooded assassin, who takes on his most dangerous contract to date. Betrayed by those he trusted and hunted by the police, he finds himself at the centre of a dark conspiracy and must embark on a personal journey through a corrupt and twisted world, in his search for the truth.
“For the first time we are taking Agent 47 on a personal journey which allows us to explore other parts of the HITMAN® fantasy, ” said Tore Blystad, game director, IO Interactive. “This is both a familiar and yet significantly different experience to any of the other Hitman games, something our silent assassins will relish as well as those who are new to the Hitman world.”

I managed low settings at 1280x720 resolution with a playable frame rate (though not smooth it was playable enough considering it is a slow paced stealth game)… And my CPU is 60-90% weaker than his i7-3632QM… Oh and BTW Sn3316081, your RAM is most likely 1600 MHz - same as mine…

Judging by requirements and comments probably high at 50-60fps and ultra tweaked smooth with full max being 40+FPS. Another 2-4GB of ram you're probably golden.

I cant see u'r res, so on 1366x768 u can play that on High Settings, with 1600x900 or higher res, I suggest to play it on Medium Settings for a better FPS. ;)
remember to turn off the AA and Vsync.

I doubt a first gen i3 and GTX 750 can max this game… For max in this game you need GTX 660 or GTX 660 ti along with a powerful i5 quad core or AMD hexacore… It is just too demanding… High settings may be but definitely not max…

I think HD 6750 can manage medium settings if not tweaked high… This game is part of AMD's gaming evolved programme and is better optimized for AMD… I would advise you to stick to medium with textures at high for best experience… BTW the 360 version looks about the same as on low settings for PC version with textures set to medium…

Oh god no… R7-250X is comparable to an HD 7770 so tweaked high to high settings is advised… This game is more demanding than this and you need nothing less than HD7870/R9-270 or HD7950/R9-270X along with an A10 series or i5 CPU…

I agree with Hemantgta… Tweaked high should not be a problem if you reduce the resolution a bit and keep shadows on low… This game is CPU+GPU centric and your i5-3570 is the strongest part of your rig…

Ultra settings in this game are impossible for a Q8200 and GT 640… This game is actually much more demanding than this… It is not too horribly optimized - it really is that beautiful - probably the best looking game of 2012… It is almost as good looking as Crysis 3 and the system requirements are almost as heavy… You need nothing less than a GTX 660 or Radeon HD 7870 to max this game along with an i5-2500 or FX-6300… For Q8200 and GT 640, medium settings are advised…

You OC'ed your Q8200 by 15%…? Well that will make a negligible difference even in some CPU intensive games like this one… Basically you OC'ed your Q8200 to a point where it now equals the Q8400…

Intel HD 4000 cranks out like 15-25 fps on low settings at 1280x720 from this game… If you consider THAT to be playable, then go ahead… But I would not advise playing this game unless you have at least Intel HD 4600, GT 630M or Radeon HD 7670M…
