    I'm not sure how the game is going to deal with hyperthreading and/or using more cores. Check around the benchmarks from others who are running a similar setup as you, but with the i7 instead of the i5.

    That's what's so confusing. I've been seeing similar setups to mine but with scores of 7000-8000. The only thing I've spotted in most is an i7 processor but that shouldn't contribute so much should it? Maybe they are running SLi?

    I don't know, really. I do know an ivy cpu will give you some increase since you gain the benefits of any PCIe 3.0 slots you have. I don't know a whole lot about this, so maybe you can take your question to the computer forums and get more information there. I do think we'll get a lot better info on multiple cores and hyperthreading once the NDA is lifted.

    I did find a post from 2010, so take this with a grain of salt.

    Honestly don't think that an i7 is going to give you a gain of 1500 points (could be wrong though). they also might be overclocked (dunno if you are or not) there's alot of info about peoples systems that they aren't posting to go along with their scores, so theirs to much "IF"s to give you a exact answer. Honstly though, i'd go with a bit more ram if your running 4 sticks to get 8 gigs, i'd consider switching to 4 sticks of 4gigs (16 total) nothing will use that much, but you can get a program that allows the loading of applications into ram, so load times are damn near instant (ram is still faster than ssd's)

    If you have the same video card as someone and you're not getting the same performance, I would shoot them a PM and ask nicely what their setup is and if they have any suggestions. Usually people are nice enough to respond if you ask nicely.

    Edit: Wrong thread for the first sentence, was thinking of the other new benchmark test thread in the PC section.
    Edit: I think I read the post you are comparing your setup to, if you could post your full benchmark test results it may help people make comparisons. If you are running higher graphics or a higher resolution then your score will drop compared to a 1080 setup.

    Edit: Since I can't ask of those who are in the beta due to NDA stuffs... Do people think this game is going to be worth it? The few official videos released all seem to show players standing still spaced out in combat, it just looks weird and hope it isn't really like that.

    Did some tests with the benchmark software and just wanted to post some results.
    Used the same settings in the program for all the tests:

    Screen Size: 1920x1080
    Graphics Presets: Custom
    General
    -Improve overall graphic quality. : Disabled ***note: with this enabled, the result was a black screen***
    -Disable rendering of objects when not visible. (Occlusion Culling) : Enabled
    -Use low-detail models on distant objects to increase performance. (LOD) : Disabled
    -Cache LOD data only when necessary. (LOD Streaming) : Disabled
    -Smooth edges. (Anti-aliasing) : Enabled
    -Increase transparent lighting quality. : Enabled
    -Grass Quality : High
    Shadows
    -Use low-detail models on shadows to increase performance. (LOD) : Disabled
    -Display : Personal and Environmental
    -Shadow Resolution : High: 2048 pixels
    -Shadow Cascading : High
    -Shadow Softening : High
    Texture Detail
    -Texture Filtering : High
    -Anisotropic Filtering : High
    Effects
    -Naturally darken the edges of the screen. (Limb Darkening) : Enabled
    -Blur the graphics around an object in motion. (Radial Blur) : Enabled
    -Effects While in Motion : Display Own
    -Screen Space Ambient Occlusion : High
    -Glare : Normal
    Cinematic Cutscenes
    -Enable depth of field. : Enabled

    System - I7 920, 7950 OC edition, 12G of 1600Mhz ram, software on RAID 0 WD Black 7200 RPM HDD
    Test 1-3: CPU Clock = 2540 Mhz
    -Avg FPS 54.624 / Score 6665
    -Avg FPS 54.790 / Score 6688
    -Avg FPS 54.668 / Score 6672
    Test 4-6: CPU Clock = 3360 Mhz
    -Avg FPS 57.480 / Score 6975
    -Avg FPS 57.343 / Score 6964
    -Avg FPS 57.485 / Score 6971
    Test 7-8: CPU Clock = 3800 Mhz
    -Avg FPS 59.031 / Score 7148
    -Avg FPS 59.020 / Score 7155
    Test 9: CPU Clock = 3800 Mhz (CPU throttling off)
    -Avg FPS 59.324 / Score 7182

    For a fun test, took test 9 CPU settings with the lowest I could get in the benchmark software *still 1920x1080 (Other then shadows/sunlight flashing, it still looked surprisingly good) Avg FPS 88.083 / Score 10399

    SLI isn't working with it currently so that isn't it. It could be the type of processor (whether you're running a 2nd or 3rd core i5) and the type of graphics card they're running. If they're smart and tweak the parameters of their graphics card they can push out more power on the same model.

    As far as FFXIV is concerned, no, an i7 isn't going to give you a massively huge bonus over an i5 unless the actual Ghz clocks between the two are a big gap -- that's due to the higher clock more than the processor type.

    I'm running an i5 2500 (hey it was a really good price!) so I'm SOL when it comes to overclocking. So if I OC an i7 I could probably get a significant boost. I might need to do that, been meaning to upgrade anyways. Thanks for the comments!

    Some of the comments in that thread and what I've read are a little worrying, that the game is having performance issues on 600 series cards.

    Pleasantly surprised it ran the low end as well as it did

    Edit: Seems I got the old version of it as well. 2372 on medium settings at 1920x1200 res.

    XFX Double Dissipation Radeon HD 7970 Black edition 3GB @ Core 1000 MHZ and Memory 1425 MHz

    All tests done at 1920x1080
    1st: Maximum settings with Occlusion Culling enabled.
    2nd: Maximum with OC enabled and Shadow detail turned down to medium
    3rd: Funzies at default medium settings
    4th: Default maximum settings

    http://img23.imageshack.us/img23/282...benchmarks.png

    I must say I'm surprised with such a minimal increase with shadows turned down to medium and OC turned on. Although, I expect that to increase greatly in the actual game during dungeons and such.

    Edit: Test at maximum with OC enabled and shadows turned down to minimum possible

    Medium preset gave 11086 @94.5 FPS and maximum with OC enabled and shadows turned down to minimum gave 7557 @61.6 FPS.

    Interestingly enough, just turning on OC with the maximum preset produced decreased performance. -120 points.

    haha same.

    Tried the new benchmark, doesnt work properly with eyefinity even when fullscreened . Ah well, hopefully the beta does/will do. Hope they add crossfire support for the benchmark soon.

    Perhaps this will help:

    Yoshi-P mentioned this months ago, but it's good to see it as a reality.
