Final Fantasy XII's PC version released today, and alongside that release comes the benchmarking tool for Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition. You can grab the benchmark zip file and all of the related details here.
The tool is a simple executable that will run a test on your hardware and spit out a score based on how well your computer performs. Square Enix provided the following breakdown about what the numerical values mean:
The tool is pretty straightforward, you won't be able to toggle every setting individually, but will be able to select a resolution, whether you want the game to be windowed or in fullscreen, and general detail setting. The detail options are Lite, Standard, and High:
Lite quality: This is a reduced graphical setting that disables light reflection and anti-aliasing calculations. The resolution for shadows will be low, and the resolution for Level-Of-Detail (LOD) distance and textures will also be reduced.
Standard quality: This is the standard quality setting for a PC that meets the recommended specifications.
High quality: This setting will activate the high end graphical features incorporated into FINAL FANTASY XV WINDOWS EDITION, such as NVIDIA® Turf Effects™, NVIDIA® HairWorks™ and NVIDIA® Flow™, etc. The resolution of shadows and textures, as well as the LOD distance will also increase under this setting. A graphics card with a significant amount of VRAM is required to use it.
Once you let the six minute long benchmark run its course, you'll be able to compare your score against others with similar hardware.
