This is a benchmark of the Civilization VI game. The test profile assumes you have a Steam account, have Steam installed for the system, and that Civilization VI is available. This automates the process of executing the game and using a standardized benchmark.

This test will attempt to install the necessary game using your Steam account. If the test appears hung you may need to manually exit the Steam client.

To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark civilization-vi.

Civilization VI

Quality: Highest - Resolution: 1920 x 1080

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 137 public results since 9 February 2017 with the latest data as of 22 December 2022.

Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.
