Square Enix has released a new benchmark tool for Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn PC. According to the company, this official benchmark software uses actual maps and characters to assign a score to your PC and rate its performance.
As the company noted, starting the benchmark will cause a cut scene to play. Once the cut scene has completed, a score will be displayed. The score represents how well Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is estimated to run on your PC. Those with a score higher than 7000 will be capable of running the game on the highest settings with ease.
Even though Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is a DX9.0c title, it does not support Windows XP. This obviously means that PC gamers are required to have Windows Vista or Windows 7 or Windows 8 in order to run the benchmark.
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn’s Character Creation Benchmark is 2.6GB in size and can be downloaded from here.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
