Final Fantasy 15 is coming to PC in a month and Square Enix is setting you up with a benchmark tool to check if your hardware can keep up with the game’s requirements. The official Final Fantasy 15 Windows Edition Benchmark Tool is now available for download, giving you a score to indicate the level of performance you can expect from your PC environment when running the game.
The Final Fantasy 15 Windows Edition Benchmark Tool is available through its own launcher, letting you choose between the game’s three quality levels: “Lite”, “Standard” or “High” graphics. As Square Enix indicates, If a higher quality setting is selected then the burden on processing will also increase, so refer to the results of the Benchmark test to select the settings most suitable for your PC environment. The “High Quality” setting is required in order to activate NVIDIA GameWorks.
NVIDIA GameWorks is available in the benchmark tool and it also supports 4K (3840 x 2160px) and HDR settings. Note that this tool is not a demo version of the game but instead displays several of the events, maps, and characters used in the game.
