ASUS GeForce GTX 580 DirectCU 2 and Gainward GeForce GTX 580 Phantom 3 3GB Graphics Card Reviews

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.

All of our GTX 580s provide us with great performance in Civilization 5 with each averaging over 120fps. This is 20fps above the performance of the fastest single GPU Radeon and gives us plenty of headroom to enable 3D Vision where both ASUS and Gainward maintain framerates over 44fps at all times.
