Final Fantasy XV Benchmark for PC: graphics performance analysis.
As many of you already know, the launch of the new Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition for PC is already just around the corner, a title that comes to our computers optimized for NVIDIA graphics cards and for which the official Benchmark utility has already been published that It will allow us to know in advance what performance we are going to have in the game. So, and taking advantage of this, today we present our graphic performance analysis of Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition with all the AMD and NVIDIA graphics that we have.
Back in the day we told you that Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition comes with a PC version largely thanks to the collaboration of NVIDIA with Square Enix, who have worked together not only to optimize the game for graphics of those in green, but also to incorporate many improvements that the console version does not have, especially in the graphic aspect, and among which, of course, we must highlight the compatibility with 4K resolution and the elimination of the FPS limit.

But let’s get to what we are going, which is what interests us: How will the benchmark that they have already released of the game work with the AMD and NVIDIA graphics that we have? Let’s see it.
The Benchmark for Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition Benchmark
To carry out the graphical performance analysis of this new title, we have used the same equipment with which we have been testing the latest games (such as Star Wars: Battlefront 2, Destiny 2 or Kingdom Come: Deliverance), consisting of the following hardware:
- Intel Core i7 8700K @ stock
- MSI Z370 Gaming M5.
- 4×8 GB Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR4-3200 Mhz.
- Corsair MP500 480GB M.2 PCI-Express NVMe.
- Corsair RM1000i.
AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards used
As on other occasions, these are the AMD and NVIDIA graphics cards that we have used to test it (we are aware that we are missing many, especially mid-range, but you will understand that we do not have access to everything, although we would love to):
- AMD Radeon RX Vega 64(Built by AMD, reference model).
- AMD Radeon R9 Nano.
- AMD Radeon RX 480 (Built by AMD, reference model).
- MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gaming X.
- NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB Founders Edition(Built by NVIDIA).
- MSI GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Gaming X.
As we always do, the data that we are going to show is the one obtained using the FRAPS benchmarking tool, and the average FPS that we have obtained is shown, always with the maximum graphic settings and in different resolutions (Full HD, WHD (3440 x 1440) and Ultra HD).
The operating system used has been Windows 10 Pro x64 with all the security updates installed, and the drivers used have been, as always, the latest available at the time of testing, both by NVIDIA (GeForce 391.01 WHQL) and from AMD (Radeon Software Adrenalin Edition 18.2.3).
Final Fantasy XV Benchmark for PC: graphics performance analysis
As expected, without a doubt NVIDIA graphics work much better than AMD graphics in this title, as it has been optimized for them. Thus, the GTX 1080 Ti is capable of moving the game without any problem even at Ultra HD resolution, although it is true that with this it is not capable of maintaining a stable 60 FPS throughout the benchmark, but it should be noted that it is not He has serious downturns.
For its part, the AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 also performs quite well, and even at 3440 x 1440 resolution it is capable of maintaining an adequate 60 FPS without problems (the downside that we will have with AMD graphics is that we will not be able to activate some of the NVIDIA exclusive graphics settings once the game is in its final version). Continuing with AMD, I am sorry to see that the Radeon R9 Nano is not even capable of reaching 60 FPS at Full HD resolution, let alone the Radeon RX 480, relegated to the last position and that barely moves it with an acceptable frame rate per second at Full HD resolution.
What do you think of these performance data? Will you be buying the game when it’s available on the 6th?
