Ran it a few times... First three are on the Intel GMA4000 w/High CPU is 3610QM with 12GB all passes are at 1920x1080 second set of runs I used the 670M on my laptop.

Hopefully this helps people looking into a laptop for the game. I'm running a Sager NP9130 (older gen, the newer one has a 670MX... the 9150 is a great deal too). You can get Sager or Cleveo Laptops alot cheaper through 3rd party distros, some of which offer military discounts and some student discounts.

I'd test my desktop, but I don't feel like tweaking around to get SLI working on the bench at this time.

Pretty sure the limiting factor was the graphics card. CPU utilization was about 20 - 25% and memory was maybe 5 - 10%. I'm recommending if you make modifications to your system that the most bang for your buck is he graphics card.

It seems so far that a good video card can make a pretty big difference. If you read through, you will see a decent increase from an Nvidia 460 to a 560 - to a 660. Ram and cpu don't seem to make a big difference, unless you are running a high end i7.

I went from 5158 to 5203 on max by turning off motion blur, so not much help on my rig.

Yes. It runs a chunk of the game's engine and has your computer render everything while it does this. It then assigns you a score based on how well it did that which gives you an idea of how well your computer should run the actual game.

I thought running my old 460 and AMD 965 at 1920x1200 on Preset maximum was good at just under 6k till I saw these scores. I'm going SSD and a new videocard before game launch, It says i can run at higher resolutions but don't guarantee FINAL FANTASY XIV A Realm Reborn will run, it must be a Benchmark legal thing.

I have a spiffy-wiffy Windows machine that runs the benchmark at 1920x1080 Maximum with a score of 6541, but I wanted to try something really intaruesting, and decided to run the benchmark in a Parallels 8 virtual machine on my late-2012 iMac.
System: 
Windows 8 Pro 64-bit (6.2, Build 9200) (9200.win8_gdr.130108-1504) 
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770S CPU @ 3.10GHz 
4095.551MB 
Parallels Display Adapter (WDDM)(VRAM 512 MB) 8.15.0010.18354

At 1920x1080 Maximum... fuggedaboudit! Final score: 568 ("INADEQUATE"); average frame rate: 4.6 FPS. It was a complete slide show from start to finish; moreover, the loading times for each segment were incredibly long. Not really surprising. However, I was pleasantly surprised that the benchmark did not crash.

As a more reasonable test, I ran the benchmark again, at 1280x720 with the Medium preset. This went much better: 2407 ("STANDARD"), with an average frame rate of 19.7 FPS. It was still choppier than I would like, but it would be marginally playable if my Windows machine exploded or something.

I have no doubt that this iMac would knock out quite respectable numbers in Boot Camp (16 GB RAM, 3.1 GHz i7-3770, NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M, 512 MB VRAM), though not as high as my Windows gaming machine. I don't have Boot Camp installed, though, so I can't really check.

Anyway, if anyone was curious... there you go.

Alright Benchmark is looking great!

A few questions:

1 - What's the 'best' way to run the benchmark? (I.e. do you have no other programs running on a fresh reboot etc?)
2 - Does the benchmark utilise SLI (I'm guessing no since it's run in windowed mode)?
3- If no SLI - what is the likely real-world performance boost when the game launches in full-screen mode with SLI active?
4 - Based on my system, what would you say is my biggest weakness?

My System (note GTX 460 is SLI):

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1 (7601.win7sp1_gdr.130104-1431)

6142.492MB
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460(VRAM 3793 MB) 9.18.0013.1407


My Benchmark results (Max and Med):


Maximum:
Score: 3494
Average Framerate: 28.429
Performance: Fairly High
-Capable of running the game on default settings. Consider switching to a higher resolution depending on performance.

So far with my playing around, overclocking my CPU can squeeze out a few more but overclocking my GPU made a bigger difference. Also my GPU maxed out while my CPU never broke 50%. I have a i5 2500k @3.3ghz and a GTX660TI (same architecture as the 670/680, not the same as the standard 660) and on max 1080p settings I get around 6200-6400. I think when they implement SLI support, you'll be fine. I don't know if the benchmark will ever show it.

DUde your resolution is low lol.

I scored 4222 with max settings. Although it says "high" the game clearly was lagging pretty badly during the benchmark.

Just to add; the maximum was copy pasted on top ;) but the score is from everything off at 720p hehehe

MAX@1920x1080 = 4500
MAX@1680x1050 = 4800
MAX@1600x900 = 5463
MAX@1280x720 = 6616

Built my rig when I started beta for FFXIV Version 1.0 so not that new now but still managed 1920 x 1080 on Max Settings with a score of 5,030 so I should be playing on max.

Anyone having problems extracting the zip file without getting an error message? I got an error message that said something like unexpected end of file. The benchmark booted but as i figured my core 2 duo processor and radeon x1400 graphics card was too weak to run it.

Think if I added another GTX 280 Graphics card it would help much? This is a 6 year old gaming Dell XPS, another note I tested my wifes laptop and on medium scores a 991 insufficient. Which ran FFXIV fine on medium. I thought this was supposed to be less taxing on your system.

Alright Benchmark is looking great!

A few questions:

1 - What's the 'best' way to run the benchmark? (I.e. do you have no other programs running on a fresh reboot etc?)
2 - Does the benchmark utilise SLI (I'm guessing no since it's run in windowed mode)?
3- If no SLI - what is the likely real-world performance boost when the game launches in full-screen mode with SLI active?
4 - Based on my system, what would you say is my biggest weakness?



1: While you'll probably get a better score doing it that way, the best way to get an honest response from the benchmark is to run it the same way you'd run the game. So if you'd normally be running the game with 18 browser tabs and 5 instances of photoshop and xsplit running... do it that way.

2: No, and you nailed the reason. I'm not sure why they didn't think fullscreen mode would be a good idea, but there you go.

3: Depends if the game can take advantage of SLI or not. I'd be pretty surprised if it couldn't, but you never know. The game engine seems to lean pretty heavily on your video card so I'd expect SLI to improve its performance by quite a bit.

4: Your video card could be stronger. The 460 is good, don't get me wrong there, but if you'd got a little spare cash a 660Ti would probably give you a pretty decent boost. Also a solid state hard drive to run the game from (also your OS... if you haven't tried this, I strongly recommend it, it's really ****) should produce a noticeable performance boost to just about everything you do.

Specs


A mid 5000s score is fine. If you can live with the game at a lower resolution, it'll obviously perform better. I know for me personally, I can't live without my 1920x1080. Lower resolution just seems wrong to me. In graphics processing, the biggest drain on power is usually shadows. If you want the higher resolution, consider turning down the shadow detail and see what happens.

I lowered my monitor's resolution to an extremely low setting (1280x720) so I can be able to score "high" while keeping it on maximum settings and still have a windowed-full screen look. The benchmark looked perfect, but everything else looks horrible outside of it, lol. I'm willing to make that sacrifice though.

My only concern is the size of my UI once the game launches - its going to fill up my entire screen *unless* we have an option to scale it down. Has anyone heard if this will be a feature in ARR? I know we are going to have options for customizing the UI, but has anyone heard whether there will be a scaling feature?

ok this is wierd... Y have the system

I5 2500k run at 4400
8 gig ddr 3 ram
22 inch 1680 x 1050
GTX 275

I have a score of 3,960 point

And then I upgrade to AMD 7870 myst edition
And the score onyl went up by 600-700 point.

Which is weird since 7870 myst is a lot stronger than my 4 years old gtx 275.

The 7670 is about 20% worse than my 550ti and your score seems to bear that out. It basically a rebranded 6670.

Try updating your video drivers though I think they might be out of date. So that may give you a few more points.

I remember when we use to have to upgrade our PCs every other year or so just to keep up, now my aging CPU and four-year-old computer seems just fine.

Two GTX460s SLI'd with an aging processor isn't too bad. Best part is my motherboard is capable of supporting a CPU upgrade, which I just priced a Vishera 4.0GHz 8-core on NewEgg for $199, which would be a significant upgrade.
