The priority and primary graphics API for Forza Horizon 4 is  DirectX 12 .

GAME ENGINE

Forza Horizon 4 runs on ForzaTech's proprietary engine, which makes full use of DirectX 12. The engine was developed to be used by Turn 10 Studios in the Forza series games. Playground Games took it as a base and made some improvements, adapting the game to the open world and to modern hardware.

While working on Forza Horizon 4, the developers used a technology called photogrammetry. Its peculiarity lies in the possibility of transferring images from high quality photos to ready-made 3D models. That is why in the game the objects look so realistic and as close as possible to the real world.

All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality by MSI Afterburner. 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 resolutions of 1920x1080, 2560x1600 and 3840x2160 at the maximum graphics quality settings for the game, that is, all the quality sliders were set to their maximum value.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX and GTX graphics cards provided by LLC Business Development Center.

GPU TEST

In the test of video cards, the default resolution is 1920x1080, other resolutions are added and removed manually. You can also remove and add any positions of video cards. You can also choose any of our test processors from the list in the drop-down menu, comparing its performance with the given video card tests (by default, the most productive solution is selected). The test is performed on the most productive CPU and scaled to other processors, taking into account their testing on NVIDIA and AMD video cards.
