Civ 5

Sid Meier's Civ 5 is a turn based strategy game developed by Firaxis released in September 2010, and is the latest game in the Civilization series. You start off in prehistoric times and venture into the future on a procedurally generated map. A number of different victory conditions are achieved through research, expansion, economic development, government and military conquest. For our testing, we utilized the built in benchmark using multiple resolutions and maximum image quality settings.

The GTX 580's put up some impressive scores in Civilization V. As we saw with Alien vs Predator, the performance difference between the three overclocked 580's was very small. We saw only a 2 to 3 FPS advantage going from Gigabyte's card at 795 MHz to MSI's model at 823 MHz.
