Minimum Requirements: If your system barely meets these, expect to benchmark at 1000-1500. That means lots of lag, 5 FPS, minimum settings, and don't even try to set foot in a crowded area or your system will explode.
That's a nice piece of BS your saying here... 5fps? did you ever tried run on a system bellow rec. specs cuss i assume no...
Normal populated areas outside of towns, from 20 till 30 FPS. Cities 15-22 sometimes 25 depending on which city (cuss in ul'dah it's around 22-28) but we all know that Gridania is the most heaviest enviorement, ul'dah is the lowest, and Limsa is somewhere between. Sometimes in gridania forest i even see constant 30 fps...
Last time I've checked my benchmark was saying something around 1152 on low. And I'm not running it on lowest settings, cuss changing settings from low to mid-high doesn't even do anything to my FPS. Everything looks better, and game have the same speed. Of cores don't turn On Ambient Occlusion, Depth and Multi-sampling cuss that's a suicide ;) But you can surely turn On those settings:
Video Settings tab
Display Mode: Windowed (this game runs much more faster, with higher FPS and less chopiness in Window mode... i dunno how they made it cuss usually games ware running faster in Fullscreen and slower in Window Mode...)
Multisampling: No AA
General Drawing Quality: 8 (Standard)
Background Drawing Quality: 5 (High) (if you lower this you will see a bit more FPS gain of cores but sometimes more chopiness will come into action if you lower :/ )
Shadow Detail: Standard
Ambient Occlusion: Off
Depth of Field: Off
Disable Cutscene Effects: On
Enable Hardware Mouse Cursor: On
Texture Quality: High
Texture Filtering: High (tried with highest and it's the same but i decided for the sake of good turn it to high)
Back to Video S. Tab.
Windows Size: ... here is obvious the smaller the better, the more FPS i can run this game fine on 1152x864, 1280x720 and probably 1280x800 but the last one need's more testing... but I'm sticking with 1152x864 cuss i more like the perspective and i have normal 5:4 LCD display... (which btw. can display crystal clear screen the same as on native resolution which is 1280x1024 - don't ask how... i dunno either... one day he switched with this and now display crystal clear image on that resolution xD)
PS: Sorry for refreshing the old topic, i just needed to write that when i saw

Cuss my blood started to boiling really hot in my body from hearing BS like that...
They need a new benchmark program.
This is still for Alpha testers.
Since the updates and patches the game is MUCH smoother. I had a score of 600 when I was beta testing and it was bad but playable. I upgraded and not about 1800 and the game is fine for me on low graphic settings... other games on my computer can run at highest textures.
So it seems the complaints have caused SE them re-think such a graphic heavy on-line game.
hopefully there will be a new benchmark that reflects how the game runs now.
