    Ha! I retired my 2600K for this thing last year! Similar tastes, clearly! =)

    I've just started gathering parts for an absolute behemoth of a computer that I hope to have built in a couple of months, so I'm super interested to see how these scores change when using that thing, :cool:

    I am too poor to afford Civ6: GS. I spent all the money on the computer :) ;)

    Alright,

    I'm a long time lurker, but seldomly post.

    Just upgraded my main desktop, so I figured it was time for me to join the fun.

    Hardware Specs:
    CPU:
    AMD Threadripper 3960x (24c/48T, based 3.8Ghz, Boost 4.5 Ghz)
    GPU: Nvidia Titan X (Pascal)
    RAM: 64GB (4x16GB) DDR4-3600 CL16
    Screen/Resolution: 4k (3840x2160)@120hz (G-Sync on, V-Sync disabled)

    OS: Windows 10 Professional 1909

    Settings:
    - Full screen mode
    - 3840x2160@119hz
    - All quality settings (including AA) at max
    - Vsync off
    - UI Scaling at 100%

    Overclocking:
    CPU:
    Stock Settings
    GPU: Power Limit: 120, Core Clock +165, Memory Clock +500. Results in in-game clock of 2063Mhz

    Cooling:
    System is cooled with a custom water loop, with fan control set to keep coolant at 33C, which results in a GPU load temp when overclocked at full load of <40C

    Results:
    Code:
                        DX11            DX12
    Old Graphics Avg    10.967 ms       14.118 ms    
    Old Graphics 99th   14.048 ms       17.920 ms
    Old AI Avg Turn      6.72 s          6.75 s
    GS Graphics Avg     14.567 ms       18.932 ms
    GS Graphics 99th    17.711 ms       22.949 ms
    GS AI Avg Turn      31.61 s          31.65 s
    Considering how the last two Civ releases have been renowned for their multi-threading, I was hoping this Threadripper beast would really crush it. Seems like the engine limits itself to "only" utilizing ~16 threads heavily, one or two threads more lightly, with the rest just showing some noise level load (probably just DX12 calls) which is probably what's holding it back. Still, can't complain.

    Here is a screenshot of the core load during the GS AI benchmark in DX12 if anyone is interested:


    Another interesting note is that DX12 performs worse across the board. Not sure how much of it is due to cache thrashing from the DX12 calls spreading out over all the threads, and how much of it is just due to Nvidia's Pascal implementation for DX12 maybe being subpar, but it is what it is.

    The difference is small, but since there is no visual distinction between the two to my eye, I'll be sticking with DX11 for now.

    I've often theorized that DX12 primarily benefits slower CPU's, and particularly slower, highly threaded CPU's. If you have a CPU that can handle the load without hitting 100% on any core in DX11, it would likely be faster in DX11, as moving to DX12 would offer little benefit, and just add cache thrashing.

    Would be curious what everyone else thinks.

    So, DirectX 12 is a win for my computer and it's really not even close. I see the same CPU core utilization in both modes, though. About 13 cores running at half capacity, 4 cores oscillating from full utilization to almost nothing and then back again, and another core that's about 20% utilized. The others are basically idle.

    GPU utilization is different and almost unbelievable, though. In DX11 mode, my GPU was reading ~65% utilized with 4.4 GB of memory in use. In DX12 mode, ~14% utilized and 6.3 GB of memory in use. That's crazy.

    I play on a Large Continent maps at Standard speed. I found this thread while looking for info on a PC build that will manage CivVI Huge maps easily, and decided to post the results for my current computer.

    GPU: Intel(R) Core i7-5600U @ 2.60GHz
    CPU: Intel(R) HD Graphics 5500
    RAM: 8GB

    Vanilla Graphics Benchmark: 95.688ms (Average Frame Time), 147.434ms (99th Percentile)
    Gathering Storm Graphics Benchmark: 123.052ms (Average Frame Time), 171.018ms (99th Percentile)

    Vanilla AI Benchmark: 18.89s
    Gathering Storm AI Benchmark: 137.44s

    I shut down the computer before each test and made sure nothing unnecessary was running. When I ran them earlier today the GS AI test came out at more than 180s. Ordinarily I play while using Youtube or Netflix, so these results were not obtained using 'real world' conditions.

    finally some AMD gang represent in here.

    also, when you're not playing Civ, do you use this PC to do calculations for NASA, and if yes, how much do they pay you? :D

    A lot better than the GS AI of 194 I get from my, at the time, top spec late 2016 15 inch Mac Book Pro.
    Also, you can launch on progressively more powerful instances as you get into end game.

    Been a long time away from Civ, though I have played Col 4 a bit a year ago. Read up on Civ 4 manuals and a bit of other foolery just before Memorial Day, so I was able to snag Civ 6 Vanilla during the Epic Games Freebie. Expansions are still on sale until Wednesday, so I was wondering whether I could run Gathering Storm. I've only played about a hour of tutorial and haven't adjusted the options yet.

    System: Dell Inspiron 13 7000 2-in-1 with AMD Ryzen 7 2700U & Radeon RX Vega 10 Mobile, 16 Gig RAM (PC Game Benchmark says meets minimum but the Radeon Vega 10 doesn't meet recommended.)
    Vanilla Graphics Benchmark: 25.676 ms avg, 34.258 ms 99th%
    Vanilla AI Benchmark: 10.47 s

    EDIT (6/8): Well, it seems like Gathering Storm is a bit much for my portable rig:
    GS Graphics Benchmark: 56.138 ms avg, 77.676 ms 99th%
    GS AI Benchmark: 101.75 s
    Plus, it took about 2 minutes to lead up each benchmark. Granted, I did have Chrome running in the background, so...

    you probably got near to twice AI GS etc perfomance boost if run civ 6 via bootcamp on your mac. So do I. Seems like Mac optimization sucks
