Forza Motorsport PC system requirements revealed; DLSS, FSR, and DirectStorage supported at launch
Forza Motorsport, the confusingly-named sequel to Forza Motorsport 7, is set to hit PC and next-gen consoles on October 10. Those with extra cash to spare can play the game on October 5 by pre-ordering the game's Premium Edition for US$99.99. Developer Turn 10 Studios has now revealed its PC-specific features and system requirements to run the game.
Unlike a certain Bethesda title due to launch in September, Forza Motorsport supports both DLSS 2 and AMD FSR 2.0, along with DirectStorage. Other goodies include shader pre-caching, unlocked frame rates and support for ultra-wide monitors. Cross-platform play is enabled, but the frame rate is locked in multiplayer matches to maintain parity across hardware.
Forza Motorsport supports a wide range of controllers, along with certified steering wheels from Logitech, Thrustmaster and others. Refer to the official blog post for a complete list of supported models. Unlike many AAA games launched this year, Forza Motorsport is relatively light and can run on many previous-gen PCs.
The minimum system requirements for Forza Motorsport include an AMD Ryzen 5 1600/Intel Core i5-8400, Radeon RX 5500 XT/GeForce GTX 1060, 8 GB RAM and 130 GB of hard drive space. While an SSD is recommended, those with mechanical hard drives should be fine, thanks to DirectStorage. For a top-of-the-line experience, one needs an AMD Ryzen 7 5800X/Intel Core i7-11700K, 16 GB RAM, a GeForce RTX 4080/Radeon RX 7900 XT and an NVMe SSD.
