I'm sure you'll love your PII X4 when it comes in, and should definitely have no more complaints, other than it not doing your laundry for you. ;D I'm more than happy with my AII X4 and the PII should stack better peak performance from the L3 and increased clock speed (especially if you take advantage of the BE and overclock it more, though honestly there should be no need with that CPU). :)

Paladinhammer, I can't wait for your results because I'm having the EXACT same issue. CPU is pegged at 80% to 90% and I have the settings running so low it looks like an 8 bit Final Fantasy game.

Dude, turn off Depth of Field and Ambient Occlusion if you have those on. Definitely AO - it will certainly increase your fps.

While waiting for a new video card for a second machine (i5 760 & 4gig ram@1600mhz), I had an old 8800gt 512mb in there. Ran the game on standard settings @ 1920x1080 at around 25fps at a crystal and 40fps in the wild doing leves.

The other system has an older q9450@3.2ghz, 8gigs ram@1000mhz, and 2x GTX275 in sli and it runs the game @ 1680x1050 max settings with no issues.

Once you turn off Depth of Field and Ambient Occlusion, if you're still getting sh*tty fps, then your CPU is your bottleneck.

YES! Remove these two options and you will see a huge boost in FPS.

I was trying to figure out why I have been getting 14 FPS with my setup. After removing them it is now 30-45 FPS. I don't even see a difference in graphics.

Still odd though that I had these FPS with them selected in OB, but maybe with a full server causes such a drop?

Hey I am wandering what happened to. I to had AO and DOF on in open beta and ran the game fine now when I turn them on I get terrible fps and control issues. I thought the game would get better not worse.

I have the problem whether AO and DoF is on or off...doesn't make a difference really...nor does changing ANY of the graphical settings. I'm determined it's my CPU and most likely a correlation to some crappy coding garbage from SE. I'm sure as we roll into next month, they will clean things up....heck, non-CE sn't going live till next week anyway.

I figured out my problem.... ugh! Even though my Device Manager shows two Intel Pentium Processor 4's, I am actually only running a hyperthreaded CPU... my LGA775 socket is getting a DUAL-CORE processor TODAY!!!

If you're going to upgrade make it a good one. Don't upgrade to dual core for a desktop in late 2010. The Q9550 is a very solid socket LGA775 processor. Better yet, just get a new mobo and CPU together (might have to get new RAM as well though), you'll spend not much more than the same amount of money as you would on a good LGA775 processor, but get a much better CPU because it's newer technology. Example.

I ran the FFIV Official Benchmark

http://www.finalfantasyxiv.com/media/benchmark/na/

and scored a whopping 1053, which doesn't meet the minimum requirements at all. Even the Benchmark at the end says I'm running an Intel Pentium 4 CPU 3GHz (2 CPUs)

LIE!!!

When I run FFXIV on the lowest possible settings/resolution (and it looks like a unicorn threw up on my screen), I STILL have 10 FPS, and Task Manager shows my CPU pegged at around 85%. Chicanery!

Further research into the exact model of my motherboard and cpu shows I'm running a Hyperthreading CPU, which the OS assumes is 2 CPU's, but System Information reveals is NOT a Dual Core.

Hope this helps. I want to play this game!!!!!

While in the game go into the configuration.

http://eldritcheponym.rpgdynasty.com/ffxiv-guides-f50/ffxiv-in-game-configuration-t2100.htm

Turn off extended drawing, for all of you suffering from bad FPS. Turn off physics if your cpu is outdated or you are getting crappy performance.

Thank you bsphil, I may do exactly that, even though I'm only running a 32 bit XP OS, like everything in the PC upgrade world, we have to leapfrog our hardware, and that would be a good jump... hmmmm.

It was my CPU. With the Athlon 64 X2 I was getting 1900 on both high and low res benchmarks. Now that the Phenom II X4 955BE @ 3.8ghz, I'm getting 3265 on high and 4435 on low. :)

Increase the process priority for the exe after you run the game.. this almost doubled my friend's fps and he's running a 9 series card.

Task Manager > Processes > FFXIV > Right click > Priority > Normal

It's really far from a lame CPU. Infact, I'd take that over most of the CPU's people seem to use according to the tech threads - latest intel chips aside, naturally.

It doesn't help...the process keeps resetting itself to Low.
