Forza Horizon 5 PC (2021) Raytrace performance
PC graphics performance review and analysis with 20 GPUs

Forza Horizon 5 PC will be included to our graphics card benchmark suite as a Raytracing title, and as such, we thought it would be fun to do a quick performance evaluation of the game using raytraced results that can be applied to compatible GeForce and Radeon graphics cards. Using the most recent DXR compatible AMD Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce graphics cards, we'll see how well the game performs on the PC platform in terms of graphics card performance. We'll be testing the title with 20 different Raytracing compatible graphics cards. Performance on the PC platform will be evaluated in terms of graphics card performance, among other things. Forza Horizon 5 is a 2021 racing video game developed by Playground Games and published by Xbox Game Studios. It is the fifth Forza Horizon title and the twelfth main installment in the Forza series. The game is set in a fictionalized representation of Mexico. It was released on 9 November 2021 for Microsoft Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. The game received critical acclaim and became a huge commercial success upon release; it launched to over ten million players in its first week of full availability, the biggest-ever launch for an Xbox Game Studios title.


We'll use Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.12.1 drivers, which are going to help you boost performance to proper framerates. On NVIDIAs side, the driver released last week GeForce Game Ready 497.09 which contained very specific optimizations and was the driver of choice used. Twenty DXR graphics cards are being tested and benchmarked.  You are going to need a reasonably modern PC with at least a mainstream graphics card to run the game nicely.  This article will cover benchmarks in the sense of average framerates, we'll look at all popular resolutions scaling from Full HD (1920x1080), WQHD (2560x1440), and of course Ultra HD. UHDTV (3840x2160) pixels which is four times as many pixels as 1920x1080.  As stated we test with the game based on the optimized and available AMD Radeon driver (download) and for Nvidia their GeForce WHQL driver (download). We'll test the game on the PC platform relative to graphics card performance with the AMD/NVIDIA graphics card drivers.
