This isn't the final version of Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition, so I'm not going to put 100% faith behind the performance we're seeing here. This is merely a 'hey check this out' article for what should be one of the hottest games of next month.
AMD had its new Radeon Adrenalin Edition 18.2.1 drivers out for testing at the time, while we ran NVIDIA's latest GeForce 390.77 WHQL drivers which didn't pack any Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition support or enhancements. Our friends over at GamersNexus did a great deep dive (as usual guys, keep it up!) which explains some of the performance anomalies associated with NVIDIA's included GameWorks technology which is run by default on GeForce graphics cards when FFXV Windows Edition is run on the High Quality visual setting.
You'll need a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti or TITAN Xp to hit 4K 60FPS, or even close, in Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition. AMD can't hold a candle to NVIDIA in this game right now, as their flagship Radeon RX Vega 64 isn't even up to scratch with its whizz-bang HBM2 tech.
NVIDIA's huge $1200 graphics card in the TITAN Xp can handle everything you throw at it, but we'll reserve judgment for the best graphics card for Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition when the full version of the game launches on March 6.
