Your PC got enough horsepower to run Forza Motorsport 7?

PC specs revealed

Forza Motorsport 7 is the first Forza Motorsport in history to launch simultaneously on Xbox and PC. Actually, FM6 Apex was the first in the series to come to PC and that was months after the original’s release and free-to-play. 

When Forza Motorsport 7 launches in early October, what’s it going to demand of our PCs? Racing games are often visually incredible, so take that into consideration. Also factor in that FM7 seems positioned by Xbox to be the most important title for the Xbox One X from a performance perspective — the game that showcases the hardware’s ability to run something at 4K resolution and at 60 frames per second.

As part of its gamescom showing, Forza Motorsport developer Turn 10 revealed the PC specs that FM7 will require (along with 36 compatible controllers and racing wheels). For the baseline experience, here’s what’s necessary:

Minimum specs (720p at 30fps):

  • OS: Windows 10 (x64)
  • Processor: Intel i5-750 2.67GHz
  • Memory: 8GB RAM
  • Graphics card: Nvidia GT 740 / Nvidia GTX 650 / AMD R7 250X (all with 2GB VRAM)
  • DirectX: DirectX 12 API, Hardware Feature Level 11

However, your rig will need to be considerably more beefy to run Forza Motorsport 7 under ideal conditions:

Ideal specs (4K at 60fps):

  • OS: Windows 10 (x64)
  • Processor: Intel i7-6700K 4GHz
  • Memory: 16GB RAM
  • Graphics card: Nvidia GTX 1080 / AMD RX Vega 64
  • DirectX: DirectX 12 API, Hardware Feature Level 11

For those who are unsure how their PC will fare (or for those who just want to get behind the wheel as quickly as possible), there will be a PC demo for FM7. No date was announced, but it seems like a good way to figure out if your setup is equipped for this brand of simulation racing.
