The quintessential racing saga is returning with Forza Horizon 5, the fifth installment that will come to the Xbox and PC consoles this November 5th.
Forza Horizon 5: Minimum and Recommended Requirements on PC
In anticipation of the launch, the managers of the franchise have published what will be the minimum and recommended requirements to be able to enjoy it on our computer.
The minimum requirements seem high for what we were used to seeing, demanding u Ryzen 3 1200 or a Core i5-4460, which are already several years old. To make a comparison, the Forza Horizon 4 it was asking for a Core i3 at the very least, so the i3s would soon cease to be an option for gaming. On the graphics side, a RX 470 or one GTX 970. Unfortunately, the requirements do not state what the target resolution and framerate is, but we imagine it to be for playing 1080p + 60fps in low details. Also keep in mind that graphics cards with 2 and 3 GB of VRAM memory are out of the equation.
To play in the highest quality, Forza Horizon 5 is demanding a processor from us Ryzen 7 3800 XT or a Core i7-10700K, while the graphics card should be the RX 6800 XT or one RTX 3080. The amount of RAM should be 16GB with an SSD storage.
