Turn10 has released the finalized PC spec requirements for Forza Horizon 5, and they're expectedly steep for 4K gaming performance.

The new spec chart has a spectrum of hardware requirements for different perf targets. There's minimum specs (~720p), recommended specs (~1080p) and ideal specs (demanding 1440p - 4K gameplay). Turn10's game seems to be well optimized and the requirements are pretty reasonable, with a Ryzen 5 1550X/Intel i5-8400 CPU and Radeon RX 590/NVIDIA GTX 1070 required for the recommended spec perf.

Predictably the 4K settings require a bigger hardware jump, with a Ryzen 7 3800XT/Intel i7-10700K CPU and a Radeon RX 6800 XT (16GB) / NVIDIA RTX 3080 graphics card (10GB) needed. One thing remains consistent across all configurations: the need for 110GB of internal space for the game.
