    Dear All,

    I thought I'd share my findings about the performance of Civ 6 on my stock MacBook Pro, 13" Mid-2015.

    The specs:

    2.7 GHz Intel i5
    8 GB 1867 MHz DDR3
    Intel Iros Graphics 6100 1536 MB

    The game opens and runs without incident. I have not altered the graphics settings from the defaults. I can move the game onto a 1920X1200 external monitor. I can switch back and forth between strategic view and map view, and zoom in and out. I haven't played a game to the end, but the game works.

    Hope that helps someone.

    Using the benchmark option on the main menu, I was getting between 12 and 20 FPS.

    Same as OP, it runs perfectly on 2015 MBP! (i5 2.7GHz, 8GB RAM, Intel HD 6000). It runs even better than on my (older) Windows laptop too, which is a i5 3.1GHz, 12GB RAM, 2GB AMD 7730M. Turns are quicker, browsing the map is smooth, everything is clearer. Same niggly issues with the actual game though, e.g. weird diplomacy and denouncements for no reason.

    If y'all get a chance, would you post your scores from the benchmark option? We're trying to track scores by model in this thread:

    I'm thinking of buying the i7 version since I don't like the new MBP.

    Have you gotten to a late game yet, and if so how well does it play?

    Plays fine on my MBP during late game! Probably faster than my PC laptop too (see specs in above post). I'm currently playing a 6 civ game on King on a 6-axis battle map in the nuclear age and it's only about 10 seconds between turns.

    Dear Kwagle,

    I don't have the 2016 MBP, but the entry level 2015. I could run C6 easily until the end for all of the 10 or so games I completed. Sometimes I switched over to strategic view during the computer's turn and that seemed to help with the inevitable slow-down, but it never crashed.

    Is that the 13 or the 15? Are you running in Boot Camp, or the Mac version?

    On a whim, I tried to play a small map last night on a late-2013 13" MBP (Mac version). I did not really expect this to work *at all,* but to my surprise, it actually ran pretty well, and actually significantly faster than on the Bootcamp partition of this same computer. (I expected the Windows version in Bootcamp to run a lot better, but apparently not.) I haven't gotten to the late game yet, but I'll see how it goes.
