The Forza Motorsport series has always tried to crank up the realism and usually has pretty steep PC requirements for their time. Here’s how much power you’ll need to run the latest iteration, along with the ideal and recommended PC requirements. 

Running Forza Motorsport is a task in itself, given how demanding Turn 10’s serious racers usually tend to be. Even if you have the best hardware, you’ll still find yourself in the settings min-maxing if you’re to get the best visual at stable framerates.

Besides, hurtling with the fastest car through the many near-photo-realistic tracks in less than 60 FPS isn’t as fun, not least for sim-racing fans.

All that reasonable demand considered, let’s take a look at the minimum, recommended, and ideal specs for Forza Motorsport.
