It takes a hefty CPU to power a Chocobo

The new iteration of Final Fantasy sports some hefty recommendations, including the need for a Core i7-3770 or FX-8350 powering your system.  TechSpot decided to test out a variety of CPUs to see how they performed in tandem with a GTX 1080 Ti.  With 14 CPUs represented, including several generations of Intel chips and a representative from each of the three Ryzen lines they proceeded to run through a battery of benchmarks.  The tests quickly showed that if you are running a quad core CPU clocked lower than 4GHz, from either vendor, you are not going to have a good time.  Check out the full results to see if your system can handle it or if you should be shopping for a Ryzen 5 or 7, or perhaps a higher end Coffee Lake if Intel is your cup of tea.

"Today we're checking out Final Fantasy XV CPU performance using the new standalone benchmark released ahead of next month's PC launch. The reason we want to look at CPU performance first is because the game is extremely CPU intensive, far more so than we were expecting."

It should be noted that this FF benchmark is SERIOUSLY flawed, as pointed out by Steve with GamersNexus:

That pretty much confirms what i suspected when reading anything less than 4 cores and 4Ghz would lead to poor performance, the developers have done a half-arsed job in terms of optimization, they took a that will do approach.

I ran this test on my Fury X i5 4670 combo and I noted the CPU utilization never even reached 100% at any point on any core during the test so I don't understand how its such a CPU hog.

Cocopo(Utawarerumono), Takes no shit from any bandits/others for sure, is better than any FF(Chocobo). But that's nothing to do with some F-upped benchmark rendering the birds even when they are outside the viewport or miles away from the camera and other such screwed up rendering.

Hell look at all the things that GN lists wrong with that benchmark and Damn the FF folks put an actual tree frog in charge of QA/QC on that benchmark!

Damn english is my first language but my anime will have no damn english spoken! Japanese Voice actors/actresses are the best and most english dubs make me nauseous.

Digital foundries was able to get 4k 60 fps on an i5 8600k and a 1070ti with minimal tweaks.
