Gaming Tests: Final Fantasy XIV

Despite being one number less than Final Fantasy 15, because FF14 is a massively-multiplayer online title, there are always yearly update packages which give the opportunity for graphical updates too. In 2019, FFXIV launched its Shadowbringers expansion, and an official standalone benchmark was released at the same time for users to understand what level of performance they could expect. Much like the FF15 benchmark we’ve been using for a while, this test is a long 7-minute scene of simulated gameplay within the title. There are a number of interesting graphical features, and it certainly looks more like a 2019 title than a 2010 release, which is when FF14 first came out.

With this being a standalone benchmark, we do not have to worry about updates, and the idea for these sort of tests for end-users is to keep the code base consistent. For our testing suite, we are using the following settings:

  • 768p Minimum, 1440p Minimum, 4K Minimum, 1080p Maximum

As with the other benchmarks, we do as many runs until 10 minutes per resolution/setting combination has passed, and then take averages. Realistically, because of the length of this test, this equates to two runs per setting.

All of our benchmark results can also be found in our benchmark engine, Bench.

    was there a performance/watt metric anywhere in this article? how many memory controllers on each chip? Reply

    As MT vs ST tests clearly show, there is not enough power and/or memory bandwidth on AM4 for 16 cores anymore.

    Hoping for a 4-channel DDR5 mass-market platform next.

    One 8-core chiplet, one graphics chiplet (similar to 5600 XT, and working together with an additional AMD graphics card), 4 channels of DDR5 to support that, preferably as SODIMM slots right on the CPU package for smallest latency and power consumption possible (and making a cheap MB possible)... I can dream, can I? It should have been this generation, I would have ordered it already.

    Same or better performance than Intel for the same price, with PCIe 4.0 for uber fast drives?
    Where do I sign?
    Bring it on.

    How do you conclude that this product line is superior to Tiger Lake when there are no measurements that compare these two? All the Intel to AMD comparisons are the old Skylake core on 14 nm vs. the latest Zen 3 core on 7 nm. Am I missing something here? Reply

    Is there a reason why the 5800X outperforms both the 5900X and 5950X in some games? Could it have something to do with 1 CCX vs 2 CCXs? Reply
