Forza Horizon 4 PC Performance Review

Graphics Scaling - GTX 1060 VS RX 580 - Lowest to Maximum

Forza Horizon 4 offers PC gamers a lot of scalabilities, with the move from max settings to the game's lowest preset presenting us with a performance boost that is well in excess of 2x without any resolution changes. 

On our Radeon RX 580 and Geforce GTX 1060, all you need to do to ensure steady 60+ FPS gameplay at 1440p is to lower the game's graphical settings to the game's High preset, offering plenty of wiggle room to enhance a few extra graphical settings beyond that. In the prior two pages, you will be able to see that the game looks like under each of these graphical presets.

When comparing these specific Radeon and Geforce graphics cards, it is easy to think that AMD and Nvidia sit with level pegging in Forza Horizon 4, though this is a thought that you will no doubt need to reconsider when we look at newer graphics architectures from both sides of the GPU wars. Forza Horizon 4 loves Vega and Turing, with the game offering a significant performance uplift on both modern graphics architectures.

Considering 1080p is my best (poor eye sight) I'm well impressed at how well it runs on Ultra, and I do like the Forza Horizon gamesQuote

Vega 64 only 1.6FPS behind a 1080 Ti at 1440P, Impressive.Quote

Yeah, Forza is a great showing on Radeon's Vega graphics cards. It's well strange that the RX 580 and GTX 1060 are level pegging, but the Vega 64 demolishes the GTX 1080.

Anyway guys, all feedback is appreciated here. Feel welcome to post criticism, especially for the video, as it is our first time doing that.Quote

Wow, that is the first time I've ever seen Vega match a 1080Ti in gaming. Even games that favour Vega specifically like Far Cry 5 and Wolfenstein II don't show Vega being on par with the 1080Ti; it was always still slightly behind, at least from what I've seen and remember. Very impressive.

Also, OC3D's video game analysis articles are one of the only places I know of that shows performance scaling with different in-game settings. There's nothing worse than seeing a graph for a game where a GTX 1080 or Vega 64 can't hit 60 FPS at 1440p in a new game at max settings but easily hits 80 FPS with just a couple of superfluous settings turned down or off. So thanks very much for the extra work.

On a similar note, what I think could be the best way to test a game is to have target FPS points. So for instance you'd have a GTX 1050/RX 460, GTX 1060/RX 580 and GTX 1080/Vega 64 comparison, and you'd show what the graphics settings would need to be in order to hit 60, 90 or 120 FPS, maybe with screenshot comparisons as you guys already do. So if I had a GTX 1060, I'd know that in AC Odyssey I'd have to use FXAA and High shadows in order to hit 60 FPS at 1080p, or I'd have to turn off a couple of other things to hit 90 FPS. The same thing for the other cards. It would take a lot of work and may not be possible for most, but it would be the best way to do things in my opinion. I always appreciated Nvidia's breakdown of AAA games and their graphics settings. It basically meant that if I had for example a GTX 970 and still wanted to hit 60 FPS at 1080p, I'd know that either I'd need to upgrade my graphics card, or how far I'd have to reduce the in-game settings to hit that point, or whether that was something I was willing to do.

Again, excellent work, Mark and all those involved.Quote

Look at the vega 56 compared to 1080 too!Quote
