        The benchmarking is similar to Civ 5, more detailed information is here:

        ~/.local/share/aspyr-media/Sid Meier's Civilization Beyond Earth/Logs is where the .csv files end up.

          It looks like they are only officially supporting NVidia (at least for now)

          Judging by the requirements listed on Steam.

              Can anyone confirm the -benchmark command still works on Linux? Thanks!

                Confirmed, I checked it earlier today.

                  So it's indeed fully automated from start to finish from running the command to seeing data dumped in CSV file and exiting? (Then beginning in the morning I will buy the game and run an onslaught of Linux benchmarks...)

                  Thanks for confirming!

                    When I try to run Civ:BE, I just get a message about libtbb.so.2 being missing.
