Sid Meier’s Civilization VI
Originally created by legendary game designer Sid Meier, Civilization is a turn-based strategy game in which you attempt to build an empire to stand the test of time. Become Ruler of the World by establishing and leading a civilization from the Stone Age to the Information Age. Wage war, conduct diplomacy, advance your culture, and go head-to-head with history’s greatest leaders as you attempt to build the greatest civilization the world has ever known.
Civilization VI offers new ways to engage with your world: cities now physically expand across the map, active research in technology and culture unlocks new potential, and competing leaders will pursue their own agendas based on their historical traits as you race for one of five ways to achieve victory in the game.
ASRock’s H470 Steel Legend does well in our first game benchmark coming in just a fraction of a millisecond slower than Z490 boards.
Far Cry 5
Anything can happen. Everything will.
Welcome to Hope County, Montana, land of the free and the brave, but also home to a fanatical doomsday cult—known as The Project at Eden’s Gate—that is threatening the community’s freedom. Stand up to the cult’s leaders, Joseph Seed, and the Heralds, as you spark the fires of resistance that will liberate the besieged community.
Far Cry 5 does quite well on the Steel Legend with it missing being the fastest average frame rate of our 400 series boards.
Far Cry New Dawn
Face off against the vicious Highwaymen, led by twin sisters Mickey and Lou, as you fight to survive in a post-apocalyptic frontier set in Hope County, Montana 17 years after the global nuclear catastrophe. Form unexpected alliances, build a deadly arsenal of makeshift weapons using the remnants of the old world.
Far Cry New Dawn shows the Steel Legend just a couple of frames behind the much more expensive Z490 boards.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
Experience Lara Croft’s defining moment as she becomes the Tomb Raider. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara must master a deadly jungle, overcome terrifying tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour. As she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse, Lara will ultimately be forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider runs really well on the Steel Legend and gives us the best frame rate to date for our 400 series boards.
Ashes of the Singularity
Planet by planet, a war is raging across the galaxy. The technological singularity has given humanity the power to expand further than they ever have before. Now, they compete with each other and their sentient artificial intelligence adversaries for control of newfound worlds.
The Steel Legend shows a pretty big lead from the Z490 boards with a more than 10% lead from the higher-priced boards.
Metro Exodus is an epic, story-driven first-person shooter from 4A Games that blends deadly combat and stealth with exploration and survival horror in one of the most immersive game worlds ever created.
In Metro Exodus, the Steel Legend regains its honor with it holding the lead over the rest of our 400 series boards.
