Forza 7 demo is coming

There’s some news on a demo version of the game. And what PC you’ll need to play it.

The requirements for Forza Motorsport 7 were realeased back in January and were pretty acceptable. Now we get a more detailed look at what kind of machine will give us what level of performance:

Low (720p, 30 fps):

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-750 2.67GHz or AMD FX-6300
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GT 740/GTX 650 or AMD R7 250X with 2GB RAM

Recommended (1080p, 60 fps)

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 3.2GHz or AMD FX-8350
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 670/GTX 1050 or AMD RX 560 with 4GB RAM

Ultra (4K, 60 fps)

  • CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K 4GHz or AMD Ryzen 7
  • RAM: 16GB
  • GPU: Nvidia GTX 1080 or AMD RX Vega 64 with 8GB RAM

Ultrabook (mobile—720p, 30 fps)

  • CPU: Core i5-6200U or better
  • RAM: 8GB
  • GPU: Intel HD 520 (integrated) or better

The studio stressed that optimization is one of its priorities:

“Forza Motorsport 7 was designed to run smoothly across a wide range of Windows 10 PCs and performance settings. Not only have we lowered our minimum specifications to i5-750, we’ve also reduced our recommended specifications while still having the game run at a rock solid 60 frames per second. Even gamers with a Surface Book 4 or other budget-friendly gaming PC can play the game.”

This is all important because “in the coming weeks” we’ll get a demo of the game. The full thing comes out October 3.
