    You SHOULD have DX11 installed on your pc unless you have a 7+ year old gpu who doesn't support them...

    You must DL a separate DX11 Client. Gotta love SE never providing everything you need on the disks, to this day 14 years later, they have still never added all the patch updates to the FFXI disks.

    DirectX 11 Client Distribution

    Coinciding with the launch of Heavensward, we will be releasing the DirectX 11 client. Those of you who are already playing the Windows version, and using graphics cards that support DirectX 11, will be able to download this client to play in a DirectX 11 environment. The depth expression is remarkably different. The amount of strain placed on your processor will be lighter, so please check out the DirectX 11 version if your machine supports it. The client can be downloaded for free.

    Back to the topic at hand, here is my score. Maximum DX11 Settings, says custom because I did turn off the "glare" setting. Don't like it, never use it, don't see a point in testing with it on, besides I doubt my score would change much.

    The Benchmark was running SLi, both my GTX 780Ti were at around 73c, not bad!

    14032 ~ Yeah, I think I'm good to play...lol



    Benchmark Score Chart for anyone that didn't see it on the SE site.

    thanks for the reply Khalus

    yeah i ran mine this morning on DX11, just wasnt entirely sure if its on my Asus (or the wifes for that matter, but both are fairly new so im going to assume they have it, was just curious) and got very high with no tweaking as i was doing it while i was getting ready

    Maximum setting, boarderless window:

    DX9 - 9882 - Extremely High

    DX11 - 7110 - Extremely High

    While both are EH, I am not happy that it drop by almost 3k score though

    Nope, just whatever it was on, I never touch the control panel >.>

    Know too little about PC to touch dangerous stuff like that....

    Specs:
    Motherboard: Asus Z77 V-LK
    Processor: i7 [email protected], no longer bothering with FSB OC.
    RAM: 4x4GB 1600MHz CL9 G.skill / Corsair RAM
    GPU: Gigabyte Windforce GTX770 factory OC.
    OS: Windows 7 Professional.
    Monitor FG2421 [email protected]
    SSD: Samsung 830 256GB.

    Max settings on all full screen windowed.

    Looked at the GPU usage and CPU usage graph. This game is very much GPU dependent the entire way through. Not once did it dip down 100% (99%) usage other than loading screens.
    Lowest FPS dip I saw was 40FPS~. Most of the time it was 50-70FPS with some occasions of 110FPS+, though that' usually just very basic scenery.

    Maxed in Fullscreen.

    The biggest dips I noticed were the close up to the water while fishing (59fps), the group fighting in the foreground as the mass of flying and ground mounts passed by in the background in the river (59fps), the close ups of the machine rising (47fps), and the second boss fight (48fps).

    Yeah it is really gpu bound like you said Rem. Was watching Afterburner on my second screen and was always at around 98-99% when not on loading screens. (Have a GTX 970 for ref)

    Guess I'll slap this in the proper thread then...

    Specs:
    Motherboard: Asus P8 Z77 V-LK
    CPU: i5 2500k @ 4.6ghz
    RAM: 16GB (x2 8g Gskill Sniper) 2133mhz
    GPU: Sapphire Tri-X 290X
    OS: Windows 7 Professional
    Monitor: Acer generic 1920x1080 - 60mhz (might get the Acer G257HU 1440p monitor before the summer though, pretty cheap atm)
    I have the game on a Toshiba 7200rpm 1TB HDD. I have never seen much of an improvement with slapping WoW, FF14, GW2, TERA, etc on my SSD so I use it for the OS and videos) only

    Settings: 1920x1080, Maximum (DX11)

    CPU: Intel Xeon E3 1246v3
    GPU: AMD R9 270X 2GB
    RAM: 8GB @ 1600
    SDD: 120GB Samsung 840 EVO
    OS: Windows 8.1 64bit

    Holding off on upgrading my GPU till June.

    Guys I need your help really bad so I can upgrade if needed before heavensward
    Allright so I ran both dx9 and dx11 on maximum settings, borderless windowed and got very high and high respectively.
    My settings go as follows:

    CPU: Intel(R) core(TM) i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz
    GPU: AMD Radeon HD7800 series
    RAM:8GB DDR3 1600MHz
    Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z77X-UD5H
    SSD: 500 GB SATA III 7200 rpm
    Monitor: 1920x1080 @ 60Hz
    OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

    From a first glance and comparing to everyone else I think it is my GPU that is holding me back but while I know a few basic things about pc structure I m no expert at it and I know a lot of you here are very good at that so I really really would appreciate your help!
    I want you guys to tell me which one of my specs still holds strong/very strong/is dated and which one absolutely needs an upgrade to run maximum settings on DX11!
    Suggestions to what I could change it to are very very welcome
    I know graphics cards are a lot cheaper now than they used to be 3-5 years ago.

    Your machine is similar to mine that i posted before except for the gpu and i scored Very High (5619) with a gtx580 on DX11 maximum settings so i guess the gpu is the bottleneck for you...
