Benchmarks: Civilization VI
Civilization mainly relies on the processor and scales excellently with multiple cores, which means that the Ryzen 5 1600X scores better as long as the graphical settings aren't cranked up too much. The RX 580 and GTX 1060 are basically equal if paired with an Intel processor, however in combination with Ryzen the RX 580 outperforms the Nvidia card.
If we look at the frame times, Nvidia wins at Full HD medium. The Ryzen CPU does offer the best frame times though, regardless of the GPU.
