    To run the benchmark you need to.

    Explore to your steam library and right click the Beyond Earth .exe file.
    * Click "Properties".
    * Click "Set Launch Options".
    * Type into the field "-benchmark lategameview" (without the quotations so it reads -benchmark lategameview).
    * Click OK and launch the game.

    Next time you run the game it will go straight into the benchmark.

    Don't forget to apply the correct game settings before starting the benchmark.:)

    Currently the best driver to use for Civilization Beyond Earth with Mantle is 14.9.1, until 14.9.2 driver hits.

    Not a game I will be playing. But I have read the long and bigger the game becomes the more CPU demanding it gets. I remember this when I was younger and used to play RollerCoster Tycoon the bigger your park the more demanding it became to run.

    So my point is, is this benchmark tool a true representation of the performance one can expect.

    Edit: Unpacking now. Should have downloaded to SSD because this is taking ages!!!

    That was going to be my first question too when I saw them discussing this on the AT forums.

    On the one hand you'd think the developers would know this and base their benchmark on this, but on the other hand it is possible that using the built-in benchmark will be about as useful as testing a new graphic card with aggressive temperature based boost using a built-in 30 seconds benchmark in a on open air rig. That is, not very useful at all. For graphic card reviews I have almost given up on any of the English language review sites because of this.

    Whelp, won't be playing this one yet!

    It doesn't allow any resolution greater than 1280x1024 in fullscreen. Possibly because 144hz rog swift.

    Can play windowed...

    I switched to my other monitor, and the game runs full screen (2560x1600@60hz).

    However, I can't find the benchmark in the menus.

    Think the game needs patching!!!

    Thanks Matt!

    Everything maxxed including 8x MSAA I got ~155fps, but the benchmark doesn't give you a post-bench summary, so you just have to watch it and grab a middling number....

    I have placed the settings in the OP and ran the bench myself but I can not find where the results are being stored.

    Hi Kaap,

    Results should be stored in the ProgramFilesx86>Steam>>SteamApps>Common>CIV folder. :)
