[FPS Benchmarks] Forza Horizon 5 on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (150W) and RTX 3070 Ti (150W) – just a 2% lead for the RTX 3080

Forza Horizon 5 is a beautiful-looking game that is set in a huge open world (in a fictional part of Mexico). Just like the previous Forza games, you can expect tons of races and yes the single-player campaign is long but the main pro of this title is its addictive multiplayer.

As we said, the game looks beautiful and it has a lot of visual options so you can fine-tune the visual experience. The game isn’t very light if you want to use the Extreme preset but most of the modern mid-range GPUs can show a lot of FPS on Medium and the title still looks good on this visual preset. For example, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti [95W] can show 107 FPS on Medium quality which is great news for people that don’t want to spend a fortune on a new laptop. For this article, we have prepared two powerhouses – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (150W) and RTX 3070 Ti (150W).
