Forza Motorsport 7 is racing towards its release, with developer Turn 10 Studios detailing the minimum and recommended PC requirements for the game during Gamescom 2017.


We now know that you'll need a Core i5-750/FX-6300 with a NVIDIA GT 740/GTX 650 or R7 250X graphics card with 2GB of VRAM to run 720p 30FPS. For those wanting 1080p 60FPS you'll need a faster Core i5-4460/FX-8350 processor and GeForce GTX 670/GTX 1050 Ti or Radeon RX 560 graphics card with 4GB of VRAM. Both 720p and 1080p will require 8GB of RAM.

For those wanting to push 4K 60FPS, Turn 10 revealed you'll need an Intel Core i7-6700K or a Ryzen 7 processor, with a GTX 1080 or RX Vega 64 graphics card with 8GB of RAM, and 16GB of system RAM as well. For notebook gamers to run Forza Motorsport 7 at 720 30FPS you'll need a Core i5-6200U (no AMD mobile processor recommended) with Intel HD 520 integrated graphics minimum, alongside 8GB of system RAM.

Forza Motorsport 7 will support 21:9 UltraWide resolutions and an unlocked frame rate, which seems to be a selling point now. On top of that, Forza Motorsport 7 is part of the Xbox Play Anywhere program, so your digital copy will work on both Xbox and PC. Steering wheels from Thrustmaster, Fanatec, and Logitech are also supported.

Forza Motorsport 7 launches on October 3 for Xbox One, and PC.
