Do the benchmark scores realistically mean anything?

I remember scoring rather low on XI and being able to play the game even with registry-altered super high settings without a single problem so i'm really doubtful of the truth behind scoring just a 2199 for XIV.

On that note, how in Altana's name do you reach the 8000's? I was confident i pimped my gaming computer out tremendously already, but... 8000+?

While we're asking questions, i'm fairly sure it will, but does the game support a selectable high-res 4:3 setting or will wide-screen be all that's available to me if i want to completely crank up the graphics (as per silly two choice benchmark)?

The benchmark scores are not as accurate anymore since it was made in the early stages of the game, and now the game has been optimized more than it was before.

The 8000+ scores on LOW are from a combination of a great graphics card and a top-of-the-foodchain CPU.

The 8000+ scores on HIGH are from a combination of a great CPU and double or triple high-end graphics cards.

The game itself supports multiple different resolutions depending on your monitor, it's not just limited to 720p and 1080p as the benchmark is.

I scored a high 900 (1500+ is considered playable) and people swore up and down that the game wouldn't be able to run for me, turns out I can run it at standard settings and it works just fine. My friend who scored a 450 on the benchmark can still play reasonably well, but he had to cut the texture settings to low which makes everything look really edgy.
