It is AMAZING to me how much faster this machine is from my last one. And I can turn the graphics up! When I loaded up Final Fantasy, I played for awhile at whatever the default setting was without even thinking about the fact that I had a brand new machine. I was consistently running at 60 frames per second. Then my husband asked me if I turned everything up. So I went into the settings and turned everything up to max. I lost about 10 fps, but even in busy areas, I ran at a consistent 50 frames per second. My last computer had everything turned down to minimum and I was lucky if I reached 30. I usually hovered around 20. I love it!
I took this picture of the box while I was at work. After my husband drove out to the FedEx facility to pick it up, he dropped it off at my office. I didn’t want him leaving it in the car while he was at work. So this thing was taunting me ALL DAY.
Look at the size of that power brick! I put the PS4 controller next to it for comparison. (That’s also probably why I stuck it in the same folder as my PS4 pictures and posted it there first… LOL)It’s so small and cute. I think it’s just about the same size as my XBOX 360. Maybe ever so slightly larger, but not by much.
I need to install some other games, but now that FFXIV:ARR is running really well, I’m just not motivated to do that. LOL (I finally got my Paladin to 50 over the weekend…)
