HIS Radeon HD 6970 Turbo Graphics Card Review

Civilization 5 - DirectX 11

Civilization 5 was released at the end of September and in a somewhat surprising move the developers have included a number of advanced graphical features in the latest version of this franchise. This includes support for DirectX 11 and terrain tessellation, ensuring this is the best looking Civilization ever.

Testing was performed at 1920x1080 with 8x anti-aliasing. High in-game settings were enabled.

Civilization 5 is one of the newest games in our test and is DirectX 11 enabled, though not particularly demanding for these cards. With a resolution of 1920x1080, maximum detail and 8x anti-aliasing each of the products produces flawless framerates and once again we see the benefit of using the Turbo card. It exceeds the performance of NVIDIAs GTX 570 in this game.
