hmmm...
i ran my first test in crossfire mode and got 5200.
but when i ran it with the crossfire off i get 5596.
does ARR still not use crossfire, or is something else up?


- AMD CrossFireX and Nvidia SLI are not supported at this time.
We are currently working with the manufacturers to add support for these features by the launch of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn.


Plain as day on the Benchmark website. http://na.finalfantasyxiv.com/benchmark/ Plus, the benchmark is run in windowed mode with no access to fullscreen.

heh your right it is a window, dang i really wasn't thinking there. oh well it's nice to know they are trying to make it happen, because i bought a second card to run this game when it came out lol. i was dissapointed that i bought it for nothing. but this is good news. also runs extremely smooth as compared to 1.0 even if im using only 1 card.

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Try updating your video drivers though I think they might be out of date.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.


The driver is up-to-date, and the computer is less than a month old. :<

I got an extra thousand points turning off "Improve Overal Graphical Quality" without a big change to what the benchmark looked like. Bumped me up to 5349 on 1920 x 1080 with Max settings.

I ran it on their default setup just to see:

Amazingly enough, by putting it on the lowest settings, it looks like most other games to me.

p.s. went from 5100 to 5900 on max settings by lowering the quality of the shadows, and making them environmental only.

That's one thing Yoshi-P said that I wrote in my piece, they're dedicated to making the game always at the top of the MMO market graphically. This implies that they will be updating the graphics as new hardware can handle it, so it should always be gorgeous. What impresses me is how good it looks even at lower settings.

I just did the same thing on mine and got the same boost (5689). Sad part is I restarted and OC'd the cpu from 3.33 ghz to 4.2ghz and I actually dropped 1000 points... the cpu went from ~55 on air cooling to around ~72

This leads me to believe that my cpu will not have to be upgraded for a couple of more years (since it has no effect) and I can focus on the GPU. I just wish there was something more substantial above mine but I got in on that intel retail edge and picked up the i7 960 for 90$, I can only get a 980x cpu as an upgrade which still is ~1100.

oh well lol; maybe around summertime next year I can decide. I want to be able to support a longer upgrade path but unlike AMD intel likes to change the dam chipset itself rather then extend it.

For graphics cards I'll prolly stick with AMD ^^

Looks like a software/OS issue rather than hardware. While you're right that your graphics hardware is kind of weak, it isn't THAT weak.

Try running the benchmark again after a fresh reboot, and kill programs running in the background as much as you can.

For people like my brother and I who wont be using "beastmode rigs", what range of score should we settle on? I have been adjusting everything to get the highest game resolution and score a "Standard".

Is "Standard" what we should be looking to get? Should we be trying to end up with a "Slightly High" or "High" instead?

Here's a good piece that I found on how to improve your benchmark score while still maintaining fairly high settings at 1920x1080. With it, I jumped from a score of 3600 (high) to a score of 5200 (very high).

Built a new PC for $1035 about two months ago pretty much exclusively for FFXIV. Glad to see it smashes the new benchmark with ease XD. I still need to get a new monitor since mine is only 1440x900, but it's good to know that after three years of yearning I will be able to play in style :D

My 6ish year old laptop scored well under 200 on the 1.0 benchmark so sadly I couldn't be a trooper through the "extended beta" ; ;


Here's to hopes of getting into Phase 3-4 of the beta still :o

Edit: Also, other than lighting and shadow effects I'm not seeing that much difference in medium and maximum settings. The game still looks amazing at lower settings :D

Server 2012 (fresh install) / 1920x1200 / Maximum settings (no tweaks) 7316
CPU overclock / no GPU overclock other than factory. A bit of advise for anyone running Server 2012 - Set min processor speed to 50% or higher and set power plan to high performance / Processor Scheduling - Programs

Went from 4733 to 7316 which is silly, almost double score something odd is going on.
5-10% gain may be normal but 30-40% is not.

I thought Server 2012 was command line only? We've been avoiding it for that reason.

No sorry, I haven't tried to do anything like that with it (or anything else for that matter.) I'm just a server maintenance tech.

I guess that makes me the software engineer who messes up those servers ;)

http://www.win2012workstation.com/

I found that; but not sure how reliable it is; I wish MS just gave us a way to make it function both ways. That being said however I have win 8 pro installed and IIS/Hyper-v work just fine for my needs. I run ubuntu and ws2012 as vm's while playing lol

sorry for OT
video not really needed just a matter of deciding what you want, what I add is

- processor scheduling needs to be moved to programs
- desktop experience features / .net 3.5 features need to be installed
- need to set windows audio service to auto startup
- install WLAN service / feature (i forget which) if needed
- disable IE enhanced security config

and I've noticed in general on another issue (TS related) setting power plan to high performance helps as well.

Server 2012 is quite a step up; it brings a couple of killer features that I like:
- only 2 flavors vs 2008 / 2003 etc
- no RAM cap (2TB) like 2008 Standard
- vhdx support (greater than 2TB virtual disks)
- built in deduplication
- remotefx optimizations
- tile interface (I actually like it). Once you take the time to set it up as per your needs its actually just as good / better than the start menu

however I strongly dislike that they moved remote desktop management to server manager rather than mmc snap ins
that and MS seems to want to move into a hybrid developer / vendor type of business as Google / Apple have done which encroaches on established vendors of hosted services and hardware vendors.

Okay maybe I shouldn't be so scared of it then.

and this

- has me salivating a bit. I assume there's a means of protecting SQL databases from that, however.

That's what I am using right now and I love it. If I remember correctly, the only thing it is lacking compared to some of the higher cards is that is has a reduced virtual memory? But yes, so far that card has destroyed everything I have thrown at it.

It's just an inexpensive HP desktop with a single 8GB DIMM, and I tried the benchmark on another computer (similar, but with an A8-5500 with 8GB dual-channel DDR3 1600 and Windows 7) and that one scored ~3600 with an improved average framerate (mid-20's). I hope this one will perform well enough with a memory upgrade to play the game, if I can't manage something altogether better by then.

Rather than starting a new thread, gonna post this in here for some advice being it deals with the benchmark

Current hardware

Win 7 (Home Premium 64)
AMD Anthlon(tm) II X4 630 Processor 2.8 GHz
Nvidia GeForce GTS 250 (1024mb DDR3)
Black Widow (450W)

It ran V1 fine on the medium settings and from the screenshot below it will do the same for V2.

Going to be doing some upgrades to my computer starting with the processor, g-card, and PSU.

This is the upgrade for the processor that my MB can handle.

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727

Looking for suggestions on upgrades for the g-card and PSU. Be mind full that yes I have money to blow items that will make me dinner while
I'm sleeping or at work, want to be realistic so that it is around the same score but at the highest settings. Scored around a 1.6k with it on max with
current hardware. See screen shot below and if you can offer why what your are suggesting will help improve this score at the highest settings.




Edit: Forgot to list the PSU

@Sillyhawk: Your graphics card is going to be the biggest upgrade there. The one you have is pretty old.

Depending on how much you want to spend on it.. a 660Ti would be pretty good, or for a little more a 670 would be very good. I'd be hesitant to go any higher, since the cost per gain ratio gets awful quickly above that point.

You'll probably want a heavier PSU for your new card too. Not knowing what else you're running in there, but a 600W should probably be sufficient. Run your new specs through a PSU calculator to be sure, and remember that most PSUs are only 80% efficient. So whatever the power requirements of your new stuff are, you need a PSU that's 20% stronger than that.

Going to be heading off to work but price range, lets say around $200 for the card, give or take a few dollars. Will look at those cards you mentioned while at work later on today, thanks

As an aside, that processor is excellent. I've been running it since release and there's been nothing it couldn't handle. Those reviews aren't kidding - it's a workhorse and if you aren't planning to move to an intel platform, it's a very good upgrade for the cost if for no other reason than you can overclock the **** out of it.

Don't really plan on going the Intel line, have always been a fan of the AMD chips. Nothing against Intel, but gotta be picky somewhere...lol
Thanks for the support on the processor!!!

The 660ti will set you back around $300 right now, 670 $350+ depending on sales etc.

Tweaked some of my motherboard settings (they were on the fail safe defaults due to some Windows 8 BSODs; now they're optimized and the processor is slightly overclocked.)

Just under 7,000, "Very High" on the Medium settings and lowest available resolution.

Cranked out and maxed to the hilt I broke 3,000.

On the likeliest settings I'll use, which is 1080p with Max (but custom tweaks such as not optimizing graphics), I broke 4,000.

Maybe I don't need to buy a new processor after all!

Rerunning mine at their default settings was a nice score, and didn't look bad either, but I'll probably end up still using 1080p

This might be of interest for people with wooden PCs like me:

I ran the benchmark on medium (without changing any settings).
Note that this is a laptop I got 2 years ago at the end of its shelf life.

+1 this. I have this processor and it's awesome. I need to upgrade my GPU though, running a Radeon 5770 and getting low 3k range @ 1920X1080/max settings.
