the comparison between PC and Xbox

Forza Horizon 5 promises to turn out to be one of the hottest titles of all 2021. As evidenced by our review of Forza Horizon 5, Playground Games was able to further raise the qualitative bar of its beloved series that has already achieved so many successes on Xbox and PC.

The work not only excels on the playful front, but also impresses on the technical one. A video comparison made by the well-known Youtube channel ElAnalistaDeBits, which compares the PC, Xbox Series X / S and Xbox One versions of the new Microsoft racing game. The PC edition was run with all settings at maximum using an RTX 3080, resulting in exceptional technical terms for the care taken in shading, lighting and detail. On Xbox Series X the Performance mode points to 2160p / 60fps results in a slightly lower quality in terms of shadows, reflections and ambient occlusion, while in Quality mode it achieves similar results to the PC edition aiming at 2160p / 30fps.

Xbox Series S, on the other hand, has Performance equal to 1080p / 60fps but has some differences in terms of textures compared to the larger counterpart, resulting in less detailed. In Quality, however, it reaches 1440p / 30fps. Moving on to the older generation, on Xbox One X we touch 2160p / 30fps with reflections a little less accurate than on the next-gen system, while on the standard Xbox One we don’t go beyond 1080p / 30fps. The comparison shows that in all editions and related modes the frame-rate remains perfectly stable without any kind of uncertainty. Finally, on Xbox One you see longer uploads and with a greater number of screens.

We also remind you how to play Forza Horizon 5 in advance if you don’t want to wait until November 9, 2021, the official date of the new Microsoft racing title.
