Forza Horizon 5 Best Graphics Settings Guide – How to Get Max FPS?

Avoid dropping fps, artifacts, and lags using the best graphic settings for PC/Windows 10/Windows 11.

Forza Horizon 5 comes with six different graphics presets. They are Low, Medium, High, Ultra, and Extreme. If you are confused about what to pick or which is the best graphic settings to play Forza Horizon 5 then keep reading. I am going to share the overall performance of different graphic settings. Also a tip on which is the best preset that can give you a mix of performance and cool visual effects. The guide is based on a Ryzen 5 3600 CPU, running with 16 GB RAM & a 6GB GTX 1060 graphics card. This can be considered a mid-level gaming system, but if you have more powerful cards like RTX 3070 TI or Zotac RTX 3070 Amp Holo then hit the Ultra settings button.

Forza Horizon 5 Graphics Settings

Before crashing into the right settings go through minimum and recommended system requirements for Forza Horizon 5. A minimum of Ryzen 3 1200 or Core i5 4460 CPU is required to play this game. If you have anything lower than this then just skip this guide. I advise gamers to go with Ryzen 5 3600 or Core i5 10400F at least if they do not burn their brain in finding the best graphic settings. For GPU GTX 1660 6GB will fall well to your expectations. Otherwise, GTX 1060 6GB can handle things at medium & high settings.

Below is the list of settings, the bold ones are important ones. They can consume high RAM/GPU.  With this, I am also sharing the presets of settings in different modes. From low to extreme. You can figure which settings can have a tremendous impact on the fps. Better graphics will affect the fps ratio, while certain settings can be turned off for the good.

A lot relies on your system hardware. If you are not having a decent card and a processor then there is no use in tweaking the settings. Stick with Low or Medium to play this game. But if you have a GTX or RTX card then you can drive out really good graphics by settings some items to low. Those who focus on fps will have to settle with medium graphics, or high if there is a 6GB 1660 level card. That’s it with the graphic guide, do not forget to check our guide on Forza Horizon 5 Car List, to check out the new and old models.
