-Easily capable of running the game. Should perform exceptionally well, even at higher resolutions.

System:
Windows 8 Pro with Media Center 64-bit
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz
6142.488MB
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti (VRAM 3793 MB)
Would still probably dumb it down a bit more for a better framerate.

Please remember that beta has an extremely strict NDA, so the people in it may not be able to post their impressions here until the NDA lifts in a later phase. I'll keep this topic updated with the latest public information as it goes live, but technically even mentioning you are in the beta is bannable.

While it is unlikely they will ever read this forum, it's not impossible...so if you want to ask for server information and things like that from someone you know as a tester, you probably want to use private messages. Also, if you ask a question and we don't answer it in a clear and concise manner, please understand why that is

Congrats!

I think everyone is planning to head for the same server (except Cashville, who is going off into the wild blue yonder with his guild ) so if you wish to join everyone else shoot me a PM and I'll let you know ASAP.

Answering that would be a NDA violation

But to those that search, they may find what they are looking for

No, not on this public forum. There are other places for beta people.

6926 on max settings with a computer I built in 2010; only upgrade was a GTX 580 about a year ago. I'm out of town for the weekend for a bachelor party; will let you know what server on Monday most likely.

New interview with Yoshi-P!

Copy/Paste interesting stuff:
Q1: What’s the difference between Free Company housing and individual player housing?

A1: Fundamentally, there will not be many differences since individual housing will have the same features as Free Company housing when it is released; however, there will be differences in regards to whether the parks and towers are set for personal use or for Free Company members

Q9: You mentioned previously that you’re working to include summoner in time for launch. Is it going to make it?

A9: Yes, it will!

Q11: Could you tell us any information about possible new classes/jobs like thief, ninja, samurai, musketeer?

A11: We feel that their is a lack of scout and caster type of classes. Our overseas players continue to mention ninja and samurai, but we realize that we need a good variety of jobs!

Q22: Please tell us more about chocobo raising!

A22: We’ll first be releasing housing, but you’ll be able to set up a chocobo stable and purchase a baby chocobo to raise. Once you have a chocobo stable you will also be able to do things like breed chocobos and train them.

Q26: You previously stated that you will be changing how the gear set works. Could you be a little more specific?

A26: We are planning to completely overhaul the gear set system. The temporary, work-in-progress, name for the new system is called the “Armoury Board.” The current plan is to show a catalogue of items that player owns and players will be able to create different alias for their created gear sets.

Q29: Please tell us some details on the FATE system. I’m worried what will happen during times or areas where there are not many people, and whether this will be disruptive for quests and gathering. Do you have countermeasure planned?

A29: Since gatherers will have stealth, they’ll be able to avoid aggressive monsters. We are also looking into making it so that FATE does not occur in areas where there are a low number of people.

Q33: Has the battle system changed since the Alpha Version?

A33: The global cooldown on actions was reduced by 0.5 seconds.

Q35: Will Gilgamesh appear in FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn?

A35: Yes, we have plans to introduce Gilgamesh through a series of quests. The quests will most likely be introduced in stages.

Q38: In terms of new races, what kind of races are you looking into and will mixed races be introduced?

A38: I don’t think we’ll have mixed races for a while. Since it seems like Viera is popular around the world we have been proactively looking into this, but since having a rabbit male might be kind of weird, maybe we’ll look into having a separate race for the male counterpart.

Q42: Will it be possible to do anything with smartphones?

A42: We are currently developing software that can also be used for FFXI and Dragon Quest 10, and we plan on making it possible to use this. In addition to this we are also planning to have features where you can browse your personal character data, as well as a large official database that you can use to check various information such as items, quests, NPC locations, and which NPCs offer quests.

Q44: When will the character creation benchmark be released?

A44: We plan on using that as a final PR push right before launch, so it will be after Beta Test phase 3.

Q45: How often are you planning to update the game after the official release of A Realm Reborn? Also, will you be introducing mini-scenarios not tied to the main scenario during these updates?

A45: We are currently planning to introduce major updates once every 2 and a half months. As far as mini-scenario goes, yes, we will be implementing mini-scenarios as well. Gilgamesh, which we introduced earlier, will be introduced through a mini-scenario.

I think from an interview i read it stands for Full Active Time Event.

Basically they sound like big zone quests that pop up in a given zone (there will be multiple different ones for each zone) and they'll show up on your map when they do. So you can run over and do it with everyone else and get credit for it then go back to your regular quests. Kind of similar to some of the quests in GW2 or Rift depending on how you wanna look at it.

There's nothing worthwhile attached to the SE account; he can have the info if that's the only way for him to use it. My XI account is on a different ID and I had nothing worthwhile accomplished on my last character in XIV.

Oh hey guys! If you are getting low performance out of the benchmark, or if you want to play it on maximum graphics and get much better results:

Turn off Screen Space Ambient Occlusion. It's a massive resource hog.

My score with it off:
Score:6584
Average Framerate:56.617
Performance:Very High
-Easily capable of running the game. Should perform exceptionally well, even at higher resolutions.

Screen Size: 1920x1080
Graphics Presets: Custom

With it on, I scored a 5200. So that's a 1300 difference

Also gained 10-12 FPS.

Muchhhh happier with my score now.

Also: Direct X11 support will be coming around launch. It might be a separate client though.

How do you guys get options for your benchmarks? All I get is the option to pick my character and the resolution?
