Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition PC Performance Review

Scaling to lower-end GPUs - GTX 960 VS R9 380
When scaling down to our older GTX 960 and R9 380 GPUs, it is clear that the game's highest settings at 1080p are just too much for these cards, especially when considering their small 2GB frame buffer.
In our benchmarking scene, moving down to Average Settings at 1080p got us to around the 30FPS mark, though not enough for a constant 30+ in our demanding test area near Wiz Chocobo Post, so we lowered the game to a 900p resolution and got a notable increase in performance. Now the game runs at over 30FPS in all areas. This resolution is what the standard PS4 targets in most cases, with dips below on occasion with its dynamic resolution scaler.
