The creators, Playground Games, have announced the official hardware requirements for Forza Horizon 5.
Although some time ago the news arrived that even GeForce GTX 650 Ti or AMD Radeon R7 250X will suffice, the official hardware requirements are completely different from those previously revealed.
Minimum and Maximum Settings
According to the latest table shared by the game’s creators, if you want to run Forza Horizon 5 on minimum settings, you will need to have Intel i5-4460 or AMD Ryzen 3 1200, 8GB of RAM and as for the graphics card, the minimum will be Nvidia GTX 970 or Radeon RX 470.

As for the graphics card, the requirement is NVIDIA RTX 3080 with 10 GB VRAM or Radeon RX 6800 XT with 16 GB VRAM.

The game developer has allowed the use of V1, V2, V2.5, CSL, CSL DD, DD1, DD2, and a universal HUB device from the Fanatec steering wheels.
What Cars Will Be at the Disposal
Forza Horizon 5 introduces a number of new vehicles to the genre. The latest additions to its lineup are the most diversified they have ever been in Forza history, from the sheer scale and toughness of the 2020 Ford Super Duty F-450 DRW Premium to the extremely rare, naturally aspirated 1991 Jaguar Sport XJR-15 and the all-electric 2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo S.
Forza Horizon 5 also introduces some of the most inventive cars in the world to the brand, including its cover cars. For the first time ever, the Mercedes-AMG ONE introduces Formula 1 hybrid technology to the street, while the 2021 Ford Bronco Badlands combines the durability of an F-Series truck with the performance spirit of a Mustang to give a spectacular off-road experience.
Forzavista, the game’s automotive exploration feature, encourages you to get up close and personal with vehicles, examining their distinctive qualities and complicated components in great detail. The game introduces raytracing to Forzavista for the first time on Xbox Series X|S and Windows PC, giving a new level of material response and reflections that are more true to life. Because every automobile in Forza Horizon 5 has a true Forzavista experience with unmatched pinpoint precision, it is only fitting.
Additionally, a new Car Collection interface highlights the cars you get in-game. You can keep track of the automobiles you have purchased by the manufacturer here. It is like having your own personal sticker book for your car. Each car has a rarity level, and collecting a certain number of automobiles from each manufacturer will also allow you to claim a special reward.
Forza Horizon 5 arrives on November 5 on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Xbox One, and PC, and will be available on the Xbox Game Pass at launch. There will be no in-gambling allowed, just as it was the case with the previous edition of the game, so if betting is your thing, go for games that are true eSports and whose competitions can be found in sportsbooks at Bookmaker-Expert.com which even allow cryptocurrencies as means of depositing and withdrawal.
