Hmm, I got about 800 higher in full screen than windowed.

If my CS education serves me correctly it's because when you render in a monitor's native resolution the GPU can dump the buffer right to the monitor whereas rendering in a window requires extra steps in the pipeline even if the resolution is the same.

Meh. Will just turn off some stuff I don't care for(HDR and AA), and upgrade to 8 or 12GB RAM.

Don't bother. FXAA has very little impact on performance. Unless you're running less than 4GB of RAM, you won't need to increase that. XIV doesn't use more than you'd have if you already have at least 4GB. Spend your money on a nice fan to overclock your CPU or get a better GPU.

The current system runs the game smooth and I don't see a need to upgrade any parts now.

Perhaps this is a good place to ask if the GTX 660 ($200) is good enough or if people think the GTX 670 around ($300) is worth the extra $100 dollars.

Time for and upgrade and I'm looking to make it last for awhile.

I haven't checked in about 2-3 months, but the 670 is(maybe still) the best performance GPU available for the price.

Cpu is at 4.4ghz and sli 780s have a modest overclock.


Turkey, I don't think you have SLI enabled. You should have double the VRAM (~6GB) listed if it were. I have SLI 470s, and it shows NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470(VRAM 4049 MB) in my results. Each card has 2GB VRAM. Check your NVidia settings, I know my SLI gets disabled after EVERY driver update.


Had to make an account just to stop misinformation from being spread. Sigh. Guess how much vram you have with quad sli and 4 gtx 480's? NOT 12GB. Vram doesn't accumulate/stack/add together. All the video cards have to load the data to draw the frames, you still only have 3GB.

To be clear/simple - Doesn't matter how many gpu's you use, your vram doesn't stack. 1x780=3gb or 3x780=still... 3gb

tell your friends.

I have a question for the folks with SLI. If you turn on the SLI indicator in NVidia control panel and run the FFXIV ARR Benchmark, does it show up?

I am beginning to think my SLI isn't working. I was scoring 12000 @ 4680x2560 on maximum and now im scoring 4000 which is the decrease Id expect going from 4 cards to 1. Not to mention I get no indicator... Whats odd is I do in everything else and all my other scores are working fine. Its only the ffxiv benchmark (and I assume game)

To be honest im not sure how the memory is computed for the video cards, running in SLI i should halve at least 6GB. Seems like the math is flawed, If anyone could explain that for me id appreciate it.

Both. probably means your motherboard too. If you are only gaming the I5 chips will be all you need just make sure to pair the right MB with the right chip. As far as video cards the 660 and up mebe even the 560 nvidia cards are all you really need.

Although this is a necro post, it's probably good to give it a bump.

Heavensward is going to have its own benchmark and demo, which will include a character creator. It'll be neat to see what everyone scores on that!

My crappy 9800GTX+ barely got over 2,000 and yet it runs the full game fine. /confused.

Miss my 560Ti though... it quit on me 2 months ago.

My poor computer is starting to show that I built it to play 1.0 almost 5 years ago. Poor thing.

I just recently bought a 2nd 7950 to Crossfire since it was a cheap upgrade. Made a massive difference in the benchmark score, more then double. Shame the same can't be said for in game. Mor Dhona and Limsa stutter down to 20 FPS most of the time, where as the single handles 30-40fps. That being said, every other area in the game hits a consistent 60-120fps.

At least the crossfire has been beneficial for most other games.

My 560ti plays the game swimmingly, but I play on "very high" and not "maximum" settings.

Hoping to finally upgrade my card soon! Good upgrades are getting a lot cheaper.

All in all not too bad for older hard wear and out of date drivers. I'm not certain the last time I updated some of my hard wear drivers. I set out to maximize the load on my system with the bench so I could see just how hard I could get FFXIV to bog down. Considering that the lowest FPS I hit was 30fps, I think even the console players are going to see a considerable improvement in performance.

Seems like the GTX 970 made a big difference over the 770. Not enough to upgrade from the 770 to the 970, but enough for it to really be considered the next gen card like nVidia promised.

I've been close to pulling the trigger on a 960, but I'm having second thoughts after seeing all of these 970 benchmark scores.

Thing is, the 960 scores I've seen are in the 7500-ish range, placing them as "extremely high" performance (best rating) on maximum settings. But the 970 scores I've seen are all around the 11,500-ish range... A huge difference for an extra $150.

My big question is if playing at max settings, does it really matter if your benchmark score is 7,500 or 11,500, both of which are "extremely high" performance?

Based on the algorithm they were talking about not completely, as it's taking your CPU more into consideration than your GPU. So while it would have an increase, the fact you're already at 7k that 4-5k difference isn't really much of anything until we see the exact changes DX11 brings to the table for XIV in general. Since Extremely High means you can run without issue, unless your CPU decides to breakdown there's really no reason to drop that extra unless there's other games you plan to max out (that demands way more than ARR.)

My inner "kid in the candy store" wants to jump up to the 970, just because of the bigger numbers... but meanwhile, I think the game looks pretty **** good at windowed 720p with my 560ti, so I'm sure the 960 would give me a big enough performance boost to be worth the $200. I'm really not much of a hardcore gamer outside of FFXIV.

Still, though... the numbers!!!

It seems that AMD cards are posting weaker scores across the board.

I used to really love AMD and believe in them. But Intel and Nvidia really stepped up their game in the last few years. Smiley: frown

You could probably bump yourself up to Max settings instead of High (Laptop) and be ok.

At 20k in high laptop, why not make the game prettier?

It seems that AMD cards are posting weaker scores across the board.

I used to really love AMD and believe in them. But Intel and Nvidia really stepped up their game in the last few years. Smiley: frown


GPUs have always done that. Nvidia pulls ahead, you buy that, AMD pulls ahead, you buy that. Then 5 mins after you buy the one that's leading the pack, the next company releases drivers that helps blow the other out of the water. When I had my Radeon 9800 pro, that was the best bang for my buck. Then god only know what I got, some Nvidia product, I think a 9700 GS (still on AGP). Then it was a GTX 260, GTX 460, HD9750, and now if I'd upgrade it'd probably be back to Nvidia. As for Intel, they've been ahead of the pack for years now.

Good news is now a days, if you invest a decent chunk of cash, they last you longer then they ever did. I've had my 7950 for a couple years now and it'll probably last another 2-3.
