I don't know if CIV will run directly on the new CPU. However, you can install a virtual computer inside your Apple OS using Parallels or a similar program. Once you install Parallels, you can install the OS of your choice in Parallels and run CIV in that. For example, I run CIV on Windows 7 in a virtrual computer using Parallels to play CIV Mods, since most of them won't work on the Mac version. Although I am not using the new CPU, I keep getting notices from Parallels that the latest updae is availble which runs on the new CPU under the latest version of Mac OS.
