I think you should be happy that your laptop will actually run the game.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

Here's the crazy part of all this.

PC specs (i'm guessing minimum requirement) for FFXIV
* The specs for the PC version are as follows: Windows XP/Vista/7, Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz or AMD Athlon X2 2GHz, 2GB of RAM, 15GB HDD space, NVIDIA GeForce 9600 512MB or ATI Radeon HD 2900 512MB and DirectX 9.

And this system would be lucky to score 300 on the benchmark in low res.

does anyone else find that the ffxi bench makes there gfx card get really hot? yes it uses up 98% of my gpu power and it reached near 90 degrees. i hadnt played any intensive games for a few weeks, so a bit worried i fired up gta iv and played in the dark with high night shadows and dirt 2 which always hammers the gpu at 98% odd and as suspected the temp doesnt go above 80 ish which is fine! i have a radeon 5870 anyone else noticed the same?

Ok, I have no knowledge of that card. If you'd said HD2900, I'd have called BS on you. My HD4650 only got 885 on low res after severely OCing it.

After seeing what I imagine are the minimum requirements, I wonder why the benchmark was so demanding. After all, a lot of us built a new pc or uprgraded the old to perk up the score. I am not upset at all because I was planning on building a new rig for 14 anyways, with or without the demanding bench. It does make me wonder how well a 6-700 laptop would run it because my wife was planning on using the PS3 but does not want to wait until March so we budgeted for a new laptop for her come release. I know there are some really nice laptops out there for roughly 1000 but 6-700 is already pushing the budget rather hard. Hmmm....

Just tried the suggestion made by Aurelius to rename the Benchmark executable to "crysis.exe" to try and take advantage of an SLI-compatible profile. While my low res score only rose by about 600 points (to 7000), my high res score jumped from ~4100 to just over 6500.

Note that the only change I made was renaming the executable. I'm not knowledgeable (or adventurous) enough to OC anything, so all of my scores are from stock speeds with the basic fan cooling in my case.

I was curious to see how the benchmark would perform with hardware similar to the newly-released minimum requirements, so I underclocked my core2 duo e8400, used only 2GB of RAM and set my Radeon HD2900XT to various clock speeds. Software was Win7 32-bit, and ATI driver 10.6. ATI Tray Tools was used to set graphics quality to the minimum, and change GPU speeds. I also threw in the configuration I use for FFXI, windows XP SP3 and Catalyst 7.7

Here's the results (LOW-res only):
 
                     GPU clock 
bus       GHz    Default    861/963 
(526x8)   4.2     2937       3320 
(300x8)   2.4     2525       2690 
(266x7.5) 2.0     2268       2324 
 
XP-CAT7.7 4.2     2716       3103 


Only thing that might make these results unrealistic is the e8400 processor has 6MB of cache, and most processors around 2GHz only have 2 to 4 megs.

I keep trying to run the Benchmark and I'm messing it up somehow. I've downloaded it multiple times but it keeps giving me an error message when I hit run that says "This application has failed to start because d3dx9_41.dll was not found." Is anyone else having this issue? I need to know how much I'm going to have to sink into my computer to get this game to run!

Ahhhh, thank you! I can't believe I overlooked that. Of course now that I can hit start the window turns black, then grey and I get a Microsoft Windows error message that says a problem stopped it from working correctly, which I think is an overheating issue. I'm probably just better off buying a new PC all together so I don't have to deal with this crap anymore. This is what I get for building a computer out of my friend's spare parts I guess.

I posted this in another thread, but might as well post it here, too. I'm trying to keep my CPU+GPU price around $350 (actually trying as best as I can to keep it under). Which do you think would be the best combo:



AMD Phenom II x4 955 3.2Ghz = ~$160

ATI Radeon HD 5770 = ~$170
or
Geforce GTX 260 = ~$200

Total = ~$330 to $360



Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 2.5Ghz = ~$200

ATI Radeon HD 5750 1Gb = ~$140
or
Geforce 9800 GTX = ~$135

Total = ~$335 to $340



Intel Core i5 750 2.66Ghz = ~$195

ATI Radeon HD 5750 1Gb = ~$140
or
Geforce 9800 GTX = ~$135
or
ATI Radeon HD 5770 = ~$170

Total = ~$330 to $365

Trying to determine how hosed I am:

Windows Vista Home Premium (6.0, Build 6002) SP2; 64bit
Intel Core i7 CPU 920@2.67GHz (8 CPUs), ~2.7GHz
NVIDIA GeForece 9600 GS 768MB
4 GB RAM


976-ish Low
Load Times 26700ms

Basically trying to determine if it is even worth upgrading this 14 month old computer. Or just go PS3 in March.

Threx, I'd stay away from the 9800s. They are old cards now. 260s aren't much better from what I hear. For an extra 100 or so, you could save yourself a lot of frustration and get a nice boost in performance.

Couldn't really run a benchmark for the resolution I tend to use while playing mmos. Which is 1680x1050. But by the numbers is my rig good to go for FF14. Or would I need an upgrade prior?

I did worse than what I though I would do.

Benchmark 1080p~2347

Benchmark 720p~4070


Something isn't right, granted it's not a top of the line build to begin with, but still. Going to poke around my O/C's and try again later. Was hoping for at least 4k-5k at 1080p. I'm sure my video card is probably lacking too, but **** I thought it'd better.



Edit: No luck with O/C my Ram, only managed an extra 100pts @ 720p. At least I can run it at a moderately high setting @ 720p for now. If I didn't owe so much I'd upgrade my Ram & Video card tomorrow. Looks like that will have to now wait until my yearly or Xmas bonus comes.

I'm going to wait til I, actually, play FF14 to decide for any upgrades in hardware. As the benchmark testing was done with resolutions I don't really use. No point in stressing myself with "what ifs". Luckily, if I do need to upgrade my vcard still 3 months to save the money to buy a better one.

Yeah and with how things are right now- the ATI cards are owning the Nvidia cards in FFXIV period. I made a thread in the nvidia forums and someone said its because the ATI card has better shader processing. But for other games, the GTX 480 is better.

I was "pleasantly" surprised by the benchmark. Given some experiences of people, I figured I'd get a 50 or something.

Windows XP SP 3
Core 2 6300 @1.86
2 GB RAM
Radeon HD 4670 (512 MB)

Haven't tried it on high resolution, which I will not, obviously. Depending on what's going on with my computer at the time (with no overclocking), I end up with a benchmark between 1600-1700.

Clearly, it's not going to be able to experience XIV at anything but the lowest settings, but now I'm pondering as to whether or not it will be enough to simply limp from release date to when I upgrade my computer over the winter. It just *barely* squeaks by SE's minimum requirements in most ways, but I'm a little worried about the CPU and SE's minimum requirement of a 2.00 GHZ chip. While I'm a long-time gamer, I rarely play the state-of-the-art graphics games and the last time I really sweated a system requirement was when Civiliation came out and I still was using a CGA monitor and ended up upgrading to EGA.

Is it likely that the CPU system requirement is a "hard" one? I plan on doing some overclocking and re-running the stuff anyway.

Bought an ATI Radeon 5700 series. It obviously isn't top notch, but looks like it will at least make FF 14 playable, even if it won't be spectacular.

Well just ran benchmark with this system:

Windows 7 Premium 32bit (Build 7600)
Intel Core 2 Duo E4600 2.4Ghz (OC'd to ~2.9Ghz)
NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT
4GB RAM

Scored 2419 on low :( should be enough to run FFXIV normally (FPS sits around 40) but worried that frame rate will be horrible in cities and such (not that it'll ever be perfect)... should I upgrade my CPU, GPU, or both? I've been looking around and these are some possibilities I could easily upgrade to:

CPU: Core 2 Duo E8500, Core 2 Duo E8600, Quad 2 Core Q9550 (not sure if I need quad since I'll only use for FFXIV and some other PC games, but its an option) Could go for the iX's but that would mean upgrading mobo as well...

GPU: GTX 260, maybe GTX 275?... not too sure on any others as GTX 480, GTX 280, etc. seem a bit overkill... and pricey @.@

May just wait til game comes out to upgrade but good to keep options open, thanks in advance :)

From what I've gathered ATI cards have an odd numbering system. The cards in the x900 range are the best, those in the x800 range are still really good. They drop off in quality really quickly in the x700 range and become almost worthless after that.

Yeah, since that post, I found out my error. Gotta say tho, that ATI's model numbers can be quite confusing.

Windows 7 64-bit
Core i7-920 @ 3.6Ghz (overclocked)
6GB TriCha RAM @ 1800Mhz
10,000rpm HD (SATA Raptor)
NVIDIA 9800GT

Scores:
3150 low res
1750 hi res

Even an antiquated crappy card (by today's standards) like the 9800GT will be able to play this game in "low" resolution if the rest of your PC can keep up. And for the record, I don't consider 1280x720 low res... that's more like mid-resolution. However, I do plan on waiting until early September to see if Nvidia resolves their driver problems on their higher end GTX platforms. Right now its looking like the HD 5800 series will be my upgrade of choice so I can play in 1080p.

*Tip: Want to test some graphics cards? Go to your local Best Buy, buy one... test it in your PC... if you don't like it because the scores not high enough, take it back. If you do like it, take it back anyway and buy it from NewEgg. Best Buy is actually a computer parts rental agency, not a sales store. :)

Video Card GPU Benchmark and BlueGartr FFXIV Benchmark Thread. The only two things you need to know. From what I have watched/heard/seen the GPU is the most important part to running and playing Final Fantasy XIV at a smooth frame rate in 720p and 1080p. Personally, I have an ATI 5770 on the way so I should be able to Benchmark it tomorrow on a dinosaur Dell Prefab stock.

CPU usage while running benchmark on a Pentium 4 3.0GHz HT is about 40-60% through the entire benchmark. So CPU in a sense doesn't matter too much unless multiple threads are programmed to be handled on multiple cores. From the benchmarks I have seen, all these cores are being used equally meaning not being used to their potential since some people have around 35-40% CPU usage across the board.

It's all about the GPU. There's also the Front Side Bus, Memory Controller Hub, I/O Controller Hub that is handled by chips on the motherboard that may matter too due to the transfer of data between hard drive/GPU etc. Here is an wiki for that: Front Side Bus Wiki + More (Diagram is nice)

I have an old Pentium 4 3.0 GHz HT Extreme Edition that even bests a Core 2 Duo and the Core 2 Extreme. Core 2 Duo/Extreme still beats it depending on applications/benchmark software obviously but eh. It's interesting research really. A motherboard could cap out a lot of things you add to it chip wise, GPU wise etc. Always best to do research and see what your maxes on GPU/CPU transfer/MHz etc is and then find a motherboard that gives you just that. Could always future proof and get the best motherboard too. Building computers is fun!

Well after reading a couple of pages of reply's on here I thought I would do the same. I was really surprised to see so many people failing the benchmark. I was a little worried because my score was so low but after I saw this dude do it (on alpha btw. Which I've heard that the benchmark is pretty much the same) I'm pretty confident I can run it ok (on low settings that is)

Here's the video btw: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-6oiev4WTuc

My score 1510
My specs:
Windows vista 32-bit
AMD Athlon 64 FX-60 Dual Core Processor 2.61 GHz
1.0 GB DDR2 ram
2 Radeon HD 3870 in Crossfire

And I'm pretty sure if I had more ram it would be a little higher

What do you guys think?
