I'm actually building a new comp for this game(that and other stuff but mostly for the game). I'm already buying the parts as we speak and at the end of it my specs should read

Windows 7 Home 64bit
8 GB rams 1600 DDR3
EVGA Geforce 650 TI 2GB GDDR5
I5-3470 Quad core 3.2GHz

I'm hoping for a really good score since they're making the game more poor friendly lol


My comp is similar (2600k and wx 650 Ti BOOSTs) and I'm getting mid 5000's on everything max 1920x1080. Only other difference is I have a SSD.

I just went through a CPU upgrade and wanted to share some pretty surprising results!

Old
Phenom II 955 Stock Speeds
8GB DDR2 1066
Radeon HD 6870 Stock Speeds

New
Core i7 4770
16GB DDR3 1600mhz
Radeon HD 6870 Stock Speeds

So you can see that the video card stayed the same.

FFXIV
1280*720
Medium Preset - OLD 8092 - NEW 12647

1920*1200
Medium Preset - OLD 6679 - NEW 8892
Maximum Preset - OLD 4056 - NEW 4604

As you can see, a Phenom II 955 at stock speeds was holding back FFXIV by quite a bit! It looks to be a really CPU dependent game.

I hope this info will help some people prep for FFXIVv2!

It shouldn't be so CPU dependent, especially in the benchmark. That, to me, sounds like bad PC coding.

Without DX11 or SLI/Crossfire (or GPU optimizations in general) done yet, why would this be any different? Not to mention (dare I say it) this is a beta benchmark Smiley: tongue

I was surprised with the benchmarks myself. Originally considering how good FFXIV2.0 looks, I didn't even consider being CPU limited.

But the benchmarks don't lie. After looking through other people's benchmarks in this thread, I think there are quite a few people out there who are limited more by their CPU than GPU.

Most MMO's are cpu intensive though. They want this stuff to run on any machine and high end gpus aren't what people normally have.

Agreed and it is due to massive amounts of data changing hands. The benchmark however deals primarily with graphic performance measured in average fps. This portion should not really be a strain on any cpu

I've noticed that AMD processors don't do as well in the benchmark as Intels. Catwho posted about it last page I think. The move from AMD to Intel could also be contributing to the big jump in his scores.

Edit:

Found this chart. Looking at the scores for my video card they are 1000 points higher than mine. They are both with Intel CPUs, whereas I have an AMD FX-6300.

AMD has been behind in recent years in terms of CPU's, but bang for your buck it's extremely hard to beat. For most gaming situations, especially ones that are highly dependent on the GPU, it's fine. When you consider the FX-8350 goes for about 190$, that's **** good value compared to some of the I5-I7 chips.

Agreed. My last 3 CPUs have been AMD. Doesn't look like the benchmark is optimized for AMD, but it is probably exactly as Wint said: a beta benchmark.

For the record I have nothing against AMD, if you are on a budget and need performance they're a solid choice. However for a little more scratch you can usually get some pretty good results from Intel, I love my 2600k.
