Forza Motorsport is undeniably one of the best and most accessible sim racers on the market. However, given the amount of content and its nearly photorealistic graphics, it will require a beefy PC to run it. If you’re playing Forza Motorsport on console, you need not worry about these things outside of the required space the game needs. But if you’re on PC, you have a whole laundry list of things to consider before installing the game, such as your CPU and GPU, among other things. With that said, here are the minimum and recommended PC requirements for Forza Motorsport.

If you’re new to PC gaming or otherwise don’t understand the technical side of things, there are essentially two conditions under which video games run on the platform: the minimum requirements and the recommended requirements. A PC that meets the minimum requirements of a game will allow it to be playable, but likely at the cost of several categories such as performance and/or graphical fidelity. On the other hand, the recommended system requirements are what a game’s developer recommends for the intended and best overall experience. Here are the PC requirements for Forza Motorsport.
