Final Fantasy XIV is preparing to launch its beta tests, but can your rig handle it? The answer is probably "of course it can" for most PC enthusiasts, but just in case you have your doubts Square Enix has released a benchmark test.
The test puts your PC through its paces and assigns it a score. You're aiming for 2,000 or higher, which means you can run the game on default settings. The scoring can go up beyond 7,000 though, giving you some bragging rights if your PC can run it at max settings without breaking a sweat. Square is also careful to note that this isn't a trial version of the game and doesn't grant access to the beta; for that, you'll have to sign up like everybody else.
