FINAL FANTASY XIV: Dawntrail Official Benchmark

Square Enix has released an Official Benchmark for FINAL FANTASY XIV: Dawntrail to allow PC gamers to assess how well FINAL FANTASY XIV will run on their systems following the graphics update in the Dawntrail expansion. Word is: "This software is not a trial version. Please be aware that you cannot play FINAL FANTASY XIV using this software. You must read and agree to the terms and conditions before downloading the software." There's an additional element here, as although it is not playable, the benchmark does also include the chance to play with the character creator:

This benchmark will not only gauge your computer's performance running FINAL FANTASY XIV, but also allow you to use the game's character creation tool. Appearance data can be saved for use when creating characters in the retail version. You may choose to have your character appear in place of the default Hyur male viper in the benchmark cutscenes.

  • This benchmark and included character creation tool can be used without a Square Enix account or a connection to the game's servers.
  • Data from the character creation tool will be saved to the following folder: My Games/FINAL FANTASY XIV - A Realm Reborn (Benchmark).
  • To use a Viera or Hrothgar character in the full release, you must own a license for FINAL FANTASY XIV: Shadowbringers.
    Character appearance data saved using this benchmark software can only be used on the PC on which the Windows version has been installed.

I did switch it over to DLSS, my friend has a similar rig to mine except for the processor and he has a 3080 ti instead of my 3090 evga ftw 3 card. He scored about 1500 pts more than me at the same rez. This game is very CPU intensive, I am pretty sure that is the discrepancy in our numbers.

I didn't post as a contest, frankly its interesting what peoples scores are with what hardware. If someone has a rig close to mine and my score is very low I need to figure out why.
If you have a nvidia gpu, have you enabled DLSS? It looks like the dev preselects AMD's FSR.

Dude, your CPU is massively holding back that RTX 4090. It's like casting pearls before the swines! Ya need ta give ya RTX 4090 a partner she deserves. At this point, it might make sense to wait for Zen 5 3D (9800X3D) vs. Intel Arrow Lake (both should be out early next year) but your CPU is overdue for an upgrade. That RTX 4090 deserves better.

I originally ran my RTX 4090 on my good old i9-9900K rig but then I upgraded to an i9-13900K in January 2023 and was surprised about the very juicy boost, even at 4K. The CPU taking a backseat at 4K is only true to a certain extent and an i7-8700 is clearly out of its league when trying to power the beautiful RTX 4090.
You speak lots of sense. I'm looking into it especially since I'm getting close to $2K back in Fed/State return.

If I do upgrade, I ain't playing. i9-14900K

@CissiCat

Not too shabby!

It took me a while to figure out the difference between our runs since I should have scored much higher with the same RTX 4090 as you. Then I realized that you ran the benchmark in 'windowed' mode and I ran it in full screen.

So, I just did another run in 'windowed mode' (same settings as before otherwise) and that's the ticket to success!

Here's muh new result:
