Forza Motorsport Averages Just 39 FPS on an NVIDIA RTX 4090 WITH DLSS Performance Mode

Forza Motorsport is slated to release on Xbox and Windows next week. However, going to early performance tests, the game runs horribly on even the fastest GPUs. WCCFTech tested their copy of Forza Motorsport on their beefy test bed and got less than satisfactory results. In short, the game runs like crap, even with DLSS “Performance” mode enabled, with plenty of stuttering and FPS drops.

Update: We did our own testing and turns out that there was a bug affecting the pre-launch version.

At 4K (with DLSS “Performance”) ultra graphics settings plus ray-tracing enabled, a PC comprising of the Ryzen 7 7800X3D and the GeForce RTX 4090 manage a paltry 39 FPS on average with lows of just 13.3 FPS. This means the game will likely produce 20 FPS or less without DLSS at 4K.

In case you thought ray-tracing was the culprit, you’re wrong. With RTAO (Ray Traced Ambient Occlusion) disabled, you get a meager 10 FPS gain, resulting in an average of 49 FPS and lows of 14.4 FPS. And yes, this was with DLSS “Performance” mode enabled. So essentially, you’re looking at an average of 25 FPS or less at 4K native with the mighty GeForce RTX 4090. Sad stuff.

There are still a few days to go before the launch. There’s a chance the developers will push out an optimization patch next week but don’t expect much from the final release.
