Benchmark Results: Civilization 5 (DX11)

On The Bench: EVGA GeForce GTX 460 FTW
By

Civilization V has two distinct areas where it can be tested: diplomacy and the map. The diplomatic view involves beautifully rendered versions of famous leaders like Alexander the Great and the Pharaoh Ramesses, while the map view involves representations of military forces on well-rendered terrain, using DirectX 11's tessellation features to help improve performance, rather than improving realism. We start with the leader benchmark, a test that does give us some comparative information about the products we're testing.

The results are so astronomical that any advantage here is entirely theoretical.

The GeForce cards perform well versus their Radeon counterparts, but all of the frame rates are quite high here.
