Apart from its fast-paced racing and gorgeous visuals, the Forza franchise has become popular for its optimization on PC after Forza Horizon 5. Over the last few years, this entry gained recognition for running well across various PC builds.
However, it appears the latest entry does not continue this tradition. As reported by WccfTech, Forza Motorsport stays below 60FPS at 4K Ultra Settings using an RTX 4090.
Why it matters: It has become a common norm in the gaming industry for a game to have a poor PC port. While the port is improved over time, PC fans don’t get to play the game at its best state on launch.
The game was tested using a GeForce RTX 4090 and Ryzen 7 7800X3D with 32GB of RAM, yet it did not perform well.
According to the report, Forza Motorsport is marred by stuttering and poor performance on the capable PC hardware. Using the GeForce RTX 4090, the game fails to reach 60FPS at Ultra settings with ray tracing enabled and DLSS set to performance at 4K resolution.
These settings allowed the game to reach an average of 39FPS at 4K resolution. However, the frame rate continued to be disappointing once ray tracing was disabled.
The testing shows that disabling ray tracing nets a 10FPS improvement. However, many have suggested that this may be an issue with AMD processors or the configuration used in the report.
On the other hand, Forza Motorsport is well-optimized for consoles, boasting a dynamic 4K/60FPS experience on the Xbox Series X. Therefore, PC users may find it disappointing that the game does not work as well on the platform.
Performance issues aside, Forza Motorsport appears to be a worthy entry in the popular genre of simulation racing.
It delivers on many promises of a current-generation-only Forza experience, bringing breathtaking visuals and realistic handling to the IP after several years of Horizon games with more arcade gameplay.
