Final Fantasy XV is an action role-playing game developed and published by Square Enix as part of the long-running Final Fantasy series. It was released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2016, and for Microsoft Windows in 2018. (Wikipedia).
We are testing FFXV as it is the first full title – and currently only title – that supports Nvidia’s AI-assisted DLSS anti-aliasing technique. Currently the game only supports DLSS when playing at 4K, so we benchmarked a section of the game with TAA on, and then with DLSS on to see the performance difference. We used the ‘Highest’ preset, but turned off other Nvidia technologies like HairWorks.
The last game test of the day doesn’t offer up any surprises – with or without DLSS, MSI’s Lightning Z is the fastest card on the chart.
