I finally have a spare time to run FFXIV Official Benchmark which was released last month. I scored 2410 on High Res and 4089 on Low Res. Note that the benchmark only utilizes a single core and a single video card thus having a dual/quad/8/12 cores system or SLI/Crossfire setup won’t give you any extra benefits.
For your reference, here is the scale (use your low-res score as a reference):
[8000 and over] Extremely High Performance
Easily capable of running the game on the highest settings.
[5500–7999] Very High Performance
Easily capable of running the game. Should perform exceptionally well, even at higher resolutions.
[4500-5499] High Performance
Easily capable of running the game. Should perform well, even at higher resolutions.
[3000-4499] Fairly High Performance
Capable of running the game on default settings. Consider switching to a higher resolution depending on performance.
[2500-2999] Standard Performance
Capable of running the game on default settings.
[2000-2499] Slightly Low Performance
Capable of running the game, but may experience some slowdown. Adjust settings to improve performance.
[1500-1999] Low Performance
Capable of running the game, but will experience considerable slowdown. Adjusting settings is unlikely to improve performance.
[Under 1500] Insufficient Performance
Does not meet specifications for running the game.
My system specifications are as below:
- Intel Xeon x3350 at 3.2GHz
- Nvidia GTX 280 at 621/1350/1134 (core/shader/mem clock)
- 8gig DDR2 ram
- DFI P35 Blood Iron LGA775 motherboard
- Silverstone Decathlon 750W 60A single rail
As a comparison, I asked my friend to run the FFXIV benchmark and he has an i7 920 cpu at 3.8GHz and the same video card as me. He got 2661 on High Res and 4550 on Low Res. On low resolution, CPU plays more roles than GPU (ie video card/graphic card), while, on high resolution, both are important but GPU most likely affects your score more. As you can see, Intel i7 920 only adds an extra 200 points in comparison to Intel Xeon x3350.
