Forza Horizon 3 is a computer video game in the racing simulator genre and the third part of the famous Forza Horizon series, which has become a favorite race for many players around the world. A reputable studio called Playground Games is working on developing a continuation of the famous series.

It won't be long before the game is released; the whole world will see the new chapter of Forza Horizon on September 27, 2016 on personal computers, as well as on the Xbox One console.

This subsection of our review highlights the main graphical aspects of this game. Particular attention is paid to the version of the graphics engine used, the version of the API used, graphic settings and the quality of development of the main visual aspects.

3

Forza Horizon 3 is only supported by Windows 10. Other operating systems are not currently supported by the developers and are unlikely to receive support. 

store 

The priority and primary graphics API for Forza Horizon 3 is DirectX 12.

4

Forza Motorsport 6: Apex runs on the proprietary ForzaTech engine, which takes full advantage of DirectX 12. The engine was developed for use by Turn 10 Studios in Forza games. Playground Games took it as a basis and made some improvements, adapting the game to the open world and modern hardware.

While working on Forza Horizon 3, the developers used a technology called photogrammetry. Its peculiarity is the ability to transfer images from photographs in high quality to finished 3D models. This is why the objects in the game look so realistic and as close to the real world as possible.

Developers are especially proud of gaming clouds. On this occasion, Ralph Fulton (creative director of the studio) says: “We have created a completely new technology for capturing the Australian sky, using a unique 12K HDR camera. She filmed the sky for the whole summer, and the data went to our computers, which processed the information. The clouds in our game are simply amazing. You’ve never seen anything like this before.”

Forza Horizon 3 is one of the first console games to use High Dynamic Range Imaging technology.

Forza Horizon 3 has a very sufficient range of graphic settings. We have both basic and advanced settings available. According to this approach of the developers, the game looks like a full-fledged PC project, and not a console port.

Below we have provided screenshots of the game at various graphics settings, where our readers can see the difference between the minimum and maximum graphics quality settings.

Above were comparisons of quality without restarting the game, a little later we will add with restarting, where the difference is more significant.

Activating smoothing almost completely eliminates all surface irregularities.

9

The graphics in Forza Horizon 3 are simply stunning, as is the game itself. Vegetation, car models, game locations, dynamic changes in weather and day and night - all this is done at a very high level. In fact, this is now the best representative of this genre on PC.

Next, we will move directly to gaming tests and determine what impact this game has on modern computer hardware.

All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality using the Action! program. The purpose of the test is to determine how video cards from different manufacturers behave under the same conditions. Below is a video of the test segment:

Our video cards were tested at different screen sizes of 1920x1080, 2560x1600 and 3840x2160 with High Ultra graphics quality settings. AMD CrossFireX and SLI for now are not supported by the game. 

As we can see, video cards (especially AMD) have problems using video memory in games in Ultra mode, which has a detrimental effect on performance. We also draw your attention to our test section for video cards - it is somewhat heavier than most locations in the game.

Testing of video memory consumed by the game was carried out by the program MSI Afterburner. The indicator was based on results on top video cards from AMD and NVIDIA with separate screen sizes 1920x1080 and 2560x1440 with different anti-aliasing settings.

Testing at quality settings ultra memory GPU

f3 vram 

The recommended amount of video memory usage for a resolution of 1920x1080 will be 6144 MB of video memory, for a resolution of 2560x1440 - 6144 MB of video memory and for a resolution of 3840x2160 about 6144 MB of video memory.

We tested processor dependence on 16 models of basic configurations that are relevant today. The test was carried out in those places where the value of video cards for the game is minimal and its load was less than 99%, this time at a resolution of 1920x1080. Below is a video of the test segment:

The test was carried out on the basic configuration of Core i 7 5960X@4.6 GHz with 32 GB DDR4 2400 MGz pre-installed memory. The entire used operational memory was taken as an indicator. The RAM test on the entire system was carried out on various test benches without launching third-party applications (browsers, etc.).

Testing the game's RAM consumption at various quality settings 

f3 ram2 h 

As we can see, with various quality settings, the amount of RAM consumed in Forza Horizon 3 was in the range of 4200-5500 megabytes.

Testing system RAM consumption  

f3 ram2 

With a system with 8 gigabytes, Forza Horizon 3 consumed all 6.5 gigabytes of RAM. In the presence of a system with 12 gigabytes, the RAM consumption of all RAM was 7.6 gigabytes. With a 16 GB system, the total memory consumption was almost 8 GB. And with 32 gigabytes of RAM, the system consumes 8.3 gigabytes of RAM.  

It is also worth remembering that the smaller the amount of video memory on the video card, the greater the RAM consumption will be.

Yes, you can buy a used 980ti if you come across it for the price of a new 1060
Tell me where I can get a 980ti for 18K)) The cheapest 980 ti on Avito costs 23K. In the meantime, you can order a new gtx1070 from CU (with delivery it will be cheaper than 27K).

if you want to play on a box at 30fps, at a poor resolution, with poor textures, etc., buy a box.
It seems that they are not so wretched, since the user rating on Metacritic is 8,7 for XBONE This means that all people are satisfied.

and therefore everyone plays on the Box with 30 FPS[/quote] If you want to play on a box at 30fps, at a poor resolution, with poor textures, etc., buy a box. If you want maximum settings, perfectly smooth gameplay at 60-120 frames, maximum resolution, then Hz. everything depends on finances.

loony01You and I have slightly different comparison approaches :-) I'm already used to comparing performance in the most complex locations. Well, if so, according to the bench, then it turns out approximately 480=390 :-) And in Hitman I don’t even argue, 390 is better. Not that much, but there is a 5-10% difference (if you take the minimum fps) :-)
