Three settings: minimum, recommended and “ideal”. The first two are quite accessible, the last much less so.
This is one of the most anticipated racing games of the year: Forza Horizon 5. The title of Turn 10 will hit the track on November 5. The game is expected for Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and PC. If you want to do it on this last platform, now we know the minimum, recommended but also “ideal” configurations.
In any case, you need a PC that runs Windows 10 and provides 110GB of disk space, ideally on an SSD. The minimum configuration mentions an AMD Ryzen 3 1200 or Intel i5-4460 processor; an AMD Radeon RX 470 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 graphics card; 8 GB of RAM.

The recommended setting places the cursor a little higher, without being particularly demanding. In fact, it reports an AMD Ryzen 5 1500X or Intel Core i5-8400 processor; an AMD Radeon RX 590 or NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card; 16 GB of RAM.
Finally, the ideal configuration, although the game parameters are unknown, requires a Ryzen 7 3800XT or Intel Core i7-10700K processor; an AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT or NVIDIA RTX 3080 graphics card; still 16GB of RAM. Such settings are supposed to allow 4K / 60 IPS.
Remember that Forza Horizon 5 offers ray tracing, but only in Forzavista mode.
