Hitman Absolution Ultra Image Quality Setting Benchmark Results

Benchmark Results: The ASUS X99-Deluxe and Intel Core i7-5960X took an ever so slight lead at 1920×1080 with an average of 32.80 frames per second, while the X79 System averaged 32.27 frames per second. The Intel Core i7-4770K was able to average 31.83 frames per second and the aging i7-920 averaged 30.8 frames per second.

Hitman Absolution Low Image Quality Setting Benchmark Results

Benchmark Results: Dropping the Image Quality down to remove the GTX 670 from the equation as much as possible, some differences begin to show up. The Intel Core i7-4960X ran away with the top spot, which seems a little odd at first but it has a couple cores more than the i7-4770K, and a higher frequency than the Intel Core i7-5960X.
