It will start at 2AM PST / 5AM EST

When faced with strife or discontent, the true nature of a man is brought forth. It is then when we see the character of the individual. It is then we are able to tell if he is mature enough to grin and bare it, or subject his fellow man to his complaints and woes.

    You're welcome.  :)

    Good luck on getting a high score!  :3

    Pretty happy with the result, although with the dumbing down of the graphics for the Playstation I didn't expect much different.

     

    Score:6662 - Very High - 1920x1080 Maximum Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2500K CPU @ 4.20GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670

    4819 maximum 720p resolution.  i5, 8gb ram, gtx260.  Indoor areas seem to render 5x as fast as outdoors, that's where most my score came from.  I would not want to play at 20fps in outdoor zones.

     

    Using custom settings that I will probably tweak around, I got a much improved 7586.  Even then, due to the difference between outdoor/indoor, it looks like I won't get 60fps in crowded outdoor areas.

    Oh I loved those particle effects <3 As silly as this sounds I play FF games for this qye candy during battles and it seems like 2.0 will deliver =P

    I should be fine playing the game considering my score. My pc isn;t high end but it also seems like they downgraded some aspects of the graphics to vastly improve performance.

    1920x1080:

    mid: 5400 | high: 4150 | max: 3550

    You sure about that?

    It's a different engine from before mainly made to run on Playstation and it has no dx11 support at launch. From the benchmark I would say it looked better before.

    Yup, won't be having any problem playing FFXIV:ARR considering this score is with just one of my 680 FTWs as SLi is not supported yet for this benchmark...lol

    No such option.  This is SE remember, they always do fairly good in an overall sense, but then leave out minor details that are rather important...heh

    4237 Score @ 1920x1080 res maximum quality. Not bad for a Geforce gtx 460 and a i5-2310. when I run it with my personal settings i score close to 7000. I usually shut shadows off or on low in every game unless they give me some kind of advantage, as well as a few effects i hate like depth of field, bloom and such.

    Being a pessimist is a win-win pattern of thinking. If you're a pessimist (I'll admit that I am!) you're either:

    A. Proven right (if something bad happens)

    or

    B. Pleasantly surprised (if something good happens)

    Either way, you can't lose! Try it out sometime!

    Sadly 8 core processor means jack shit really unless the game is specifically coded to use them. I prefer my i5/i7's because of the turbo boost where if only 1 or 2 cores are needed it underclocks the others to overclock the ones in use, its a feature amd processors lack, which is probally why all the games I play run better than on my friends amd system. Sadly most pc games never use more than 1 core yet. Which is probally why the i5/i7's tend to out preform amd's, 2, 4, 6, or 8 cores, doesn't mean anything unless the game is coded to use them. This is actually a fact many people who buy cpu's seem to forget about.

    im highly intrigued to know what score u get and ur average fps. im building an A10-5800k apu system for the gf and would be interested on how this bench performs.

    They picked a new engine because it ran like garbage on even high end PCs before. I am not sure what you are smoking, but the game clearly looks better and smoother than before...

    Benchmark must be somewhat CPU intensive because I run a gtx 670 with 2600k running at 4.7ghz and hit 7950 with it on 1920x1080 maximum.. you using the newest beta drivers from nvidia?

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    For giggles I tried the benchmark with software I use to monitor GPU stats.

     

    On both maximum and medium (the lowest selectable setting) the CPU load was heavy (expected).

     

    Maximum was heavy on GPU but dropping to medium reduced GPU loading by a large amount.

     

    Framerate did improve on medium but not by a huge amount, which implies the settings mostly adjust GPU loading not CPU where my machine was bottlenecked.

    Thats well and good , my CPU is also over clocked from 4.0 to 4.5 but i dident want to brag

    I consider my i5 stock, gtx260 with 8gb of ram probably above the curve of pc hardware that mmo players tend to utilize.  I know when it comes to swinging around epeens, it may not seem to be the case, but typically the mmorpg playerbase, and I believe the PC userbase in general is upgrading slower and slower as it becomes harder to justify doing so.

     

    My point being, any engine that can't run smoothly at such specs isn't worth deploying unless you want to only attract a niche segment, and you'd better hope that niche segment heavily overlaps with the niche segment that likes your type of game.
