I checked the stress on both my CPU and GPU two times today, (Both with nothing running in the background except Windows processes and Steam).

 

Sins: Rebellion, on all highest possible settings used about 10% of my graphics card, except when I zoomed in on massive battles.(in which case it would jump to around 30%)

While playing Sins, my processor never made more than 40% total usage.

 

Civilization V: On all the highest settings, it used around 70-80% of my GPU most of the time, and almost 60% of my CPU.

 

I dont even....

How curious. As far as why it's just using such a small percentage on the GPU, I don't know. However, I do know that Sins Rebellion is only able to use a single core. This is sadly a limitation with the current iron engine.

comparing 2 different games is the worst way to tell if one is better than the other.

Quoting SemazRalan,
comparing 2 different games is the worst way to tell if one is better than the other.

 

Very great job on bringing up something that is COMPLETELY irrelevant.

 

No one was saying one was better than the other.

I was simply stating that the Sins engine is not the best thing in the world and has a curiously weak impact on my GPU.

 

If I had said one was better than the other, I would've said so.

 

"Sins is BETTER than Civilization V BECAUSE...."
