How accurate is this benchmark tool?Follow

I have a PC with the following specs:
RAM: 4GB DDR2 1066MHZ
Graphics card: ATI HD 4670 1GB DDR3 shader version 4.0 or 4.1
Processor: AMD Phenom x4 9550 2.2GHz
I scored roughly 1645 and I saw other posts of people with slower PCs that scored higher than me. Although the cut scene runs very smoothly.

I scored a 1100 on it and i can run FFXIV on low/Medium setting( The game still looks amazing) with miner to no lag on my Laptop,. So in conclusion i would say the benchmark is a ******* Joke.

I agree - you *should* be ok. Those specs aren't top of the line, but they seem high enough to at least run the game smoothly on low settings. I think that they overstated it because well... Better to overestimate than underestimate and fall short.

I'd keep an eye on temps for the first couple hours of play, though.

It is very inaccurate.

I have a MacBook Pro 13" (2010 model, Intel C2Duo 2.4GHz, 4GB RAM, geforce 320m 256MB) and I run the game on medium graphics and get beautiful smooth gameplay with no lag.

Meanwhile, I have a desktop that scored 1500 and it has to be turned all the way down to bare minimums to get it to run halfway-decently. What CPU do you have in your laptop? I think that the scores don't tell as much as they should, since it'll depend on why you got a particular score. Kind of like the FFXI benchmark, which my laptop can get a 2600 or so on but the framerate's in the toilet if there's more than a few characters on-screen at once (the emptier scenes made up most of that score).

Weak CPU will likely be a killer, but weak GPU won't be as bad it seems (4670 for the OP is on the weak side, but a quad-core should be able to handle the basics well to prop up the performance).

They should add a button in the status bar that instantly drops settings just in case you get in a crowded city, and then reset them to higher settings when you are out.

Yeah, looks like your CPU beats mine pretty handily despite being a mobile. ^^ (Desktop's rocking an X2 3800+ until we bother to put something more current in there.)

Friend of mine scored a 2500 and he has no issues-- runs the game on higher settings-- so at 1600 you should be fine if you just reduce some things.
