Try The Final Fantasy XIV Benchmark Test



PC games can be a little spotty when it comes to performance, so it’s a good thing Square Enix released a Final Fantasy XIV benchmark test for PC gamers who plan to pick the game up.


The benchmark lets you take several different pre-set characters into realtime cutscenes from the game at a resolution of your choice. Once the cutscene ends, the game will display a score to evaluate your system’s performance. You can download the benchmark and read more about the scoring process here.


Additionally, you might also want to take this note into consideration:


“Even if the results displayed by this software exceed the minimum system requirements, your system might not run FINAL FANTASY XIV due to the configuration of your computer or resident software. Please understand that this software does not guarantee that your system will run FINAL FANTASY XIV.


Additionally, the performance of this software and FINAL FANTASY XIV may differ. Please use this software for reference only.”
