Exactly the same thing is happening to me, on a radeon 6850hd, intel i5 2500k. did you work out the problem?

Yes - it was just the CPU overheating. For some reason Dishonoured stressed it in a way that other games hadn't. I replaced the CPU cooler with a bigger one, which made a difference, and also set up SpeedFan to alert me with a noise when I was within a few degrees of the temperature that seemed to cause crashes, so I could alt-tab out of the game. Not ideal - and when I have the time and funds I'll rebuild with a bigger focus on airflow - but it allowed me to finish the game.

Good luck!

Title pretty much tells you the issue, and hopefully the file requested will explain what is wrong. I'll just add I've ran memtest for 8 hours with no errors. So my RAM is safe. Hope you can help, I can't take it anymore
