Today we're going to bring you the best PC settings for optimal performance in Forza Motorsport. We'll show you how to get the smoothest and most consistent FPS refresh rate in this new racing simulator.

Forza Motorsport is out next week after the early access launch, so there's still time to ensure you've got a PC that's right to run the upcoming racing sim.

Even the best gaming PC has to be configured correctly to make the most of Forza. These graphics settings will ensure you get the best experience in Forza with a focus on optimising performance.

Best Forza Motorsport PC performance settings

You'll obviously need a powerful gaming PC to be able to run Forza Motorsport as it will need at least the same power as an Xbox Series X or Series S.

Forza Motorsport isn't available on Xbox One, so this is a next-gen exclusive for PC and Xbox gamers.

Now, if you've got a PC that has specs that are at least at the recommended levels, you'll be able to run with the settings we're proposing. If your PC is below the recommended levels, you may struggle to run with these settings. You can find the minimum and recommended Forza Motorsport system requirements here.

Forza can be run in better graphics settings than we're proposing, but you'll need a very powerful PC and the correct display hardware to do so.

For example, we're suggesting running in 1080p rather than 4K, as you'll need a top-end PC as well as a monitor that can display 4K.
