Why does it do this.
As the game progresses and the known map gets larger, more and more data has to be processed by the CPU and then sent to the GPU. It appears with Civ V that the CPU processes data serially so more data simply means more time. Turn times for you might be a bit quicker with an I7 rather than an I5 or if you OC your CPU but it is what it is. You can also speed up your game with fewer units, especially by avoiding automated workers as each unit requires some computing time. Or play a smaller game.
