Another green team ignorant fool?

Nobody plays civilization, only 33 million copies sold in total and from those 8 million civ 5 alone. So yeah, nobody plays this. rolleyes.gif

This is good news. It's important to get developers fast and hard to the DX12/vulkan bandwagon so we can have even more immersive games. I've always admired firaxis. They sure know how to make good games and not just that, they also implement new HW features right from the start just like Civ BE with mantle support. But I guess some people get more out from disgrace of the coding world like project cars?

God damnit. tongue.gif I thought you were serious. doh.gif lol

Warning: Rustled... (Click to show)
Because most people are so simple they need flashing lights and glowing arrows pointing where to go play a game.

To be interested in Civilization you have to be smart enough to win or else you'll be bored.

Unfortunately the game's original AI isn't really intelligent but instead becomes unfair at higher difficulty. The game truly reveals it's full potential when you add the CEP mods or Communitas Expansion Pack.

600+ hours.

Back on topic though, this is excellent news! Civ V suffered from pretty high CPU load to the point of bottlenecking severely late game. I used to get 30% GPU usage on my 770 at 1440p... ouch.

Batch Update Uninstaller v5.2.5
Pssst! Hit F5, I'll make more sense!

I meant those fps are useless because nobody has 200hz monitor. and i doubt it can give you 200 fps,

LOL, is this a joke? biggrin.gif

No AA on that benchmark and I'm guessing this is not from late game setup where you have massive empire and lots of units on the screen.

they should keep on adding DX12 everywhere so that by the time Volta with async is out - DX12 is nice and widespread and Volta breezes through all the benchmarks redface.gif

Do let me know when the promised Async drivers come out. No point putting the cart before the horse
