Report: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti and Asus DirectCU TOP
by Damien Triolet
Published on April 27, 2011

Civilization V

Pretty successful visually, Civilization V uses DirectX 11 to improve quality and optimise performance in the rendering of terrains thanks to tessellation and in implementing a special compression of textures thanks to the compute shaders. This compression allows it to retain the scenes of all leaders in the memory. This second usage of DirectX 11 doesn’t concern us here however as we used the benchmark integrated on a game card. We zoom in slightly so as to reduce the CPU limitation which has a strong impact in this game.

All settings were pushed to a max and we measured performance with shadows and reflections. Patch 1.2 was installed.


The GeForces do very well here. While the GTS 450 is equal to the Radeon HD 5770, the GeForce GTX 550 Ti has the advantage and is hard on the heels of the Radeon HD 6850.
