Testing:

Civilization V is a turn-based strategy game. The premise is to play as one of 18 civilizations and lead the civilization from the "dawn of man" up to the space age. This latest iteration of the Civilization series uses a new game engine and massive changes to the way the AI is used throughout the game. Civilization V is developed by Firaxis Games and is published by 2K games and was released for Windows in September of 2010. Testing will be done using actual game play with FPS measured by Fraps through a series of five turns, 150 turns into the game.

Civ V shows a nice neck and neck with the GTX 580 at stock speeds but the 7870 falls a bit low when OC'd. Perhaps it's a difference in runs, but the boost doesn't seem to apply in this particular game.
