Final Fantasy XIV Dawntrail benchmark arrives with updated PC system requirements

Square Enix recently released the Final Fantasy XIV: Dawntrail benchmark tool in anticipation of the upcoming expansion. This tool showcases the various graphical enhancements, including the introduction of AMD FSR and NVIDIA DLSS. 

The graphical improvements are noticeable, with dynamic interaction with grass and foliage, enhanced ground textures, improved shadows, soft shadows, and wave simulation. The characters' skin and models have also been refined, making reflective surfaces more realistic. The benchmark tool demonstrates these upgrades, so you can get a look ahead of Dawntrail's release.

Another new feature incorporated into the game is TSCMAA, a new anti-aliasing setting developed by Intel. This setting is an alternative to MSAA, but unlike the multi-sampling method, you cannot use it with FSR or DLSS. Users are presented with a ‘frame rate threshold' setting that allows them to choose between “Always On”, “Activate when the frame rate falls below 30FPS”, and “Activate when the frame rate falls below 60FPS”, based on their preference.

To accompany all the changes and new features, the system requirements have been updated, with the new minimum requirements matching the old recommended requirements. You can see the new system requirements in detail below:
