Benchmark scores in other reviews are only comparable when this exact same configuration is used.

We used the latest public Steam release version of Civilization VI (not a press pre-release).

Graphics Memory Usage

Using a GTX Titan X, which has 12 GB of VRAM, we tested the game's memory usage. As you can see, the game's memory requirements are not too high. Even with Ultra settings and memory usage dialed all the way up, the game only needs between 3-4 GB VRAM.
