Forza Motorsport 7

The official tech specs for Forza Motorsport 7 have been revealed, and they should be pleasing to fans of triple screen/ultrawide monitor users! The latest iteration in Microsoft’s flagship racing franchise is looking to make it more accessible to PC racers, as well as taking advantage of powerful PC setups!

First, as mentioned before, let’s talk about displays! As mentioned in the paragraph above, Forza Motorsport 7 will support triple screen display configurations, as well as 21:9 Ultrawide aspect ratios. In addition, if you have a powerful enough PC, you will be able to play at Native 4K resolution at 60 Frames Per Second.

The question is, how powerful of a PC do you need to run this shindig? Forza 6 Apex and Forza Horizon 3 were notorious for requiring a powerful PC to run. Fortunately, it looks like FM7 has been optimized for PC, so it isn’t as strenuous as you’d expect! The surprising thing is that you can actually play Forza Motorsport 7 with INTEGRATED GRAPHICS (albeit at 720p at 30FPS)!!

The next question that many people will inevitably ask is “What about wheels and pedals?!” It sounds like T10 has listened, and has provided support for over 30 gamepads and wheels, including “every fan requested wheel”. They even have the Logitech MOMO and Driving Force Pro as supported wheels!!! In addition, Multi-USB Device Support has been added, so hopefully you can run separate pedals and wheel, but we’ll see how that goes.
