Forza Horizon 3's CPU performance patch is now live
Forza Horizon 3's CPU performance patch is now live, allowing the game to utilise more threads and additional DirectX 12 performance benefits.
This update will allow PC players to more easily maintain framerates of 60FPS or over by making more efficient use of CPU resources as well as add several new graphical options to allow lower-end PC to offer additional performance. Now Forza Horizon 3 features a Very Low graphical preset, which can be used with the game's dynamic optimisation options.
CPU-wise the game has been given a new threading affinity model to make better use of PC with higher thread counts, though this new threading model can be disabled in the game's graphical options menu using the "Threaded Optimization" option.
All graphical options within Forza Horizons have also been updated to give a detailed breakdown on each setting's effect on CPU and GPU performance as well as VRAM use.
With this new update, Forza Horizon 3 will offer reduced PC system requirements which can be viewed below.
