Forza Motorsport 7 review: benchmarks with 23 graphic cards

What hardware do you need to run the newest Forza game?


Test results: Full HD (1920x1080)

We will start off by looking at the FullHD results at medium settings where the CPU speeds have the biggest impact on the performance. The graphics cards are not expected to do that much at this quality and resolution. With a fast processor, you should be seeing high framerates.

The GTX 1080 Ti takes the lead at 160 fps from GTX 1080 by about 10 fps. At the bottom of the list we find the GTX 760 with 41 fps. Surprisingly, both the Vega 64 and 56 have the same framerates (which the RX 580 is also not far behind), which makes us think that the driver is the limiting factor here. The CPU could have been clocked higher still. In this DX12 game, AMD does not yet seem to be taking advantage of a lower driver overhead to beat Nvidia

In FullHd with the highest settings all of the GPUs have a drop in the framerates but also, the proportions are clearly different than on medium. We see the Vega 64 take the lead and the Vega 56 compete with the GTX 1080 Ti. The De GTX 1060 6GB is, at these settings, still faster that the RX 580, but the difference is reduced down from 12% on medium to 4% on ultra. While the GTX 960 was ahead of the R7 370 on medium, it is now lagging behind by 36% on ultra. A similar situation is also happening between the R9 390X and the GTX 970 where these two graphics cards were near-enough equal on medium, but at ultra the GTX 970 barely reaches 60 fps 390X has surpassed its competition by 73,5 fps.
