Maybe you haven’t heard of the new mmo called final fantasy 14 well its going to be pretty much a major successor to the old game ff11. Well the big question most gamers have is if they can play it. Yes there is a minimum requirements of : Windows XP/Vista/7, Intel Core 2 Duo 2GHz or AMD Athlon X2 2GHz, 2GB of RAM, 15GB HDD space, NVIDIA GeForce 9600 512MB or ATI Radeon HD 2900 512MB and DirectX 9. However the problem many gamers have is minimun alot of companies will make lower than they should be just to help boost sales for thier game.
When it comes to the recommended requirements sometimes those could be considered the minimum requirements for final fantasy xiv because if you cant play the game smoothly then you are probably going to not have very much fun in choppy areas in the game. So if you want the recommended requirements which are considered by many to be the minimum requirements then you need. Operating System Windows 7 32-bit / 64-bit * Processor Intel® Core™ i7 (2.66 GHz) or faster Memory 4 GB or more Storage Install: 15 GB or more Download: 6 GB or more Video NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 460 with 768 MB VRAM or equivalent Sound DirectSound® compatible sound card (DirectX® 9.0c or higher) Internet Broadband Internet connection Resolution 1280 x 720 or higher; 32-bit DirectX® DirectX® 9.0c Controls Mouse, Keyboard, Gamepad.
Now lets go into a little benchmark with someone thats around the recommended requirements and what the game play looks for them. The computer being used is going to be a Quad core 2.9ghz GTS 250 4GB ram 860mhz 1TB HDD 32-bit O/S. The game was recorded with fraps and they where going for a 40 frames per second. This seemed pretty fluid for game play you can see it does still have a few hiccups here and there but that is minimal and its going off of a in game video and not a pre rendered video so thats pretty damn good for showing the game in action.
Well we hope that gives you a good insight to ffxiv minimum and recommended requirements and also what the frames per second you are looking at with a computer around the minimum requirements.
