Got my system up and running today and just did a few FFXIV benchmark runs.

i7 930 @ 3.5GHz (Can probably reach 4GHz+ but haven't tried yet).
EVGA GTX 480 (not SLI yet) 1500/2000.
6 GB DDR3 G.Skills Tri-Channel @1600.
WIN7 64 bit.
64GB SSD (OS drive).
24" 1920x1200 Monitor.

High: 4,244 @1920x1080 | Load Time:10781
Low: 6,250 @1280x720 | Load Time:10808


With a little more of system tweaking I'm sure the scores can get a bit higher.

Side notes: my old rig with Core2Duo E6600 8800GTX Superclocked did somewhat fair for an old card lol around 2000 for High and 2200 for Low. orz

e5400 @ 3.25 ghz
2 GB ddr2
gts 250 palit e-green (same speed/performance of a 9800 gtx)
xp pro SP3

now since ff is my all time favorite mmo lets see if a 5970 can beat that (with comparable cpu) if not then the 480 will be all me i dont care as much about crysis and dirt 2 and all those games but ffxiv will be the deal beaker for one of the 2 cards.

I've run it a few more times, and while my scores stay fairly consistent (=/- 30points or so) the load times vary greatly, from a low of 13000 to a high of more than 30000.

Or you could just get a HD5850 and overclock it and get a better score :D

While this maybe true, but you would also have to consider Water Cooling. I'm running my GTX 480 on stock fan at the moment. However, I do plan on getting Water Block for it later just a bit low on $$ lol. You and I both know that only with Water Cooling that we can get best OC out of. :D

Also, Dual GPUs VS Single GPU so to be fair GTX 480 would have to be in SLI. I know that FFXIV Benchmark only using a Single GPU. But who knows maybe the final version of the game might support SLI/CF.

To: Houdinii, 5970 might be good too. But also take into consideration about the video drivers between ATI and Nvidia. Do a little more research on what will work best for you. FYI I'm not a fanboy of either Nvidia or ATI. I'm just another gamers like you guys.

The 8800GTX Superclocked finally gave up after a few years of used. The good thing is that EVGA offers life-time warranty. Since they're no longer in production I'm not sure what card I'll be getting as a replacement. But they told me that it would be the same value or better at least. The card itself was $600+ back in the days lol so I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a good replacement.

I see that is good indeed. What's your temp on full load?

I finally got i7 930 up to 4.0Ghz
Tweaks a few more setting on GTX 480 stock fan and it went pretty well.

Upped core clock to 840 | 1680/2050 | 100% Fan | Temps 74C (sounded like JET engines haha... /Water Cooling Yes Please!)

About 500+ for both High and Low compared to what I got before.

Before.
High: 4,244 @1920x1080 | Load Time:10781
Low: 6,250 @1280x720 | Load Time:10808

After.
High: 4,707 @1920x1080 | Load Time:10446
Low: 6,822 @1280x720 | Load Time:10979

I used this to try a few things, current system:
Phenom II 940 black running stock at 3 ghz
8 Gigs 800 mhz ddr2 ram
nothing special about the hard drive
Two 5770's in Xfire

High 2200 or so
Low 4600 or so (Fluctuation of 30 or so'ish points for both)

OC'd the 940 to 3.6 (Most I can keep it stable at with this ram)

High 2500'ish
Load times from 17000-18000 each

Didn't test Low because Low was more than fine.

This to me shows that it's likely A) Most definatly not utilizing SLI, and B) As an Nvidia optimized game it's like the shadows that hit us the hardest (Same thing in EverQuest 2 really which is a horribly optimized game).

I -may- have to go and build a new system for this, go to an I-7 930 and a 480 since if it doesn't use SLI at all... even at release... well.

for being a nvidia game the 5800 series cards are scoring peaty dam high i7 920s/930s from stock to 4ghz are getting 4800-5k on high not using sli or crossfireX not that it seams to support it (well not the benchmark anyway)

so if i can find one with a 5970 i bet it scores 5500+ on high

actually the 5870 would score higher due to the 5970 being 2 5870's that are slightly down clocked

Low: 2894
High: 1851

Specs: Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4ghz OCed to 3.0ghz, 4 gigs ddr2-800ram, Nvidia 8800GTS.

If the benchmark proves accurate to the game, then achieving high settings is definitely going to cost quite a bit.

Curious to see what scores people with a 1055T or similar are getting.

kleintrpt,

I have an older system with the same CPU. What kind of cooling do you use? The reason I'm asking because I think that you can upped the CPU to 3.5Ghz+ with a fairly cheap cooling.

I gave the old rig to my brother and slapped on Corsair H50 ($60ish after discount) and at 3.5Ghz~ the temp idel at 36C +-2C. Before that I can only run it around 2.6~8Ghz. Maybe that will help you get a little more juice out of your CPU :D

2161 high
10597 response time
39XX low

i7 920 @ 4ghz
12gb 1600mhz ram
Nvidia 250
250gb Velociraptor

It seems like my response time is better than people with SSD drives, like its too good
and my high and low scores are too low compared to other people with similar specs.

What's going on here?
(upgrading GPU soon)

Lol blckhaze,

I guess you don't need SSD. The lowest that I've seen on my SSD is almost 10000 flat.

But I'm getting a new result on low setting. Playing around with GTX 480 settings. Core Clock for Trial #3 @805. Going to need Water Cooling if I'm going to push it 900+.

Trail #1.
High: 4,244 @1920x1080 | Load Time:10781
Low: 6,250 @1280x720 | Load Time:10808

Trial #2.
High: 4,707 @1920x1080 | Load Time:10446
Low: 6,822 @1280x720 | Load Time:10979

Trial #3.
High: 4,696 @1920x1080 | Load Time:10425 went down a little orz...
Low: 6,976 @1280x720 | Load Time:10580 7K almost there!!! lol

What in the heck is wrong with my computer? I can't break 900 on high, 1500 on low ....

Intel® Core™ 2 Quad Processor Q6600 (2.40GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 8MB cache)
6144MB 667MHz Dual-Channel DDR2 SDRAM (2-1024MB, 2-2048MB)
500GB 7200rpm Serial ATA II/300 hard drive w/ 16MB cache
Monitor 1 - 1280x1048
Monitor 2 - 1440-900
NVIDIA GeForce 8800GTS w/ 320MB
Win7 64-bit Ultimate

(yes, the picture takes up 1/3 of my 2nd monitor as well on high, and barely fits on low)

the 8800GTS 320 model is pretty slow (as is the 640 model), it's the 8800GTS 512 model that is pretty fast (as it uses G92 instead of G80 core for more SP's)

I ordered a 8800 Ultra last week that's going into either mine or my wife's computer, depending who needs it more. Both of us have high end computers from the PCI-E 1.x era, so a lot of bandwidth would be wasted with anything higher than a 8800 Ultra. You think that would catapult me past 1500 on high?
