Video: Graphics Mode — Set this to Performance. It prioritizes 60 frames-per-second performance over resolution. The better framerate helps you feel and understand your car’s responsiveness as you tune the inputs and the vehicle setup. It’s vital to a good-handling ride, and comes at almost no noticeable cost to Forza Horizon 5’s gorgeous visuals.
Oddly enough this is maybe the only game I’ve played where I disagree with this?? 30fps somehow feels great and the game is just so gorgeous I don’t want to lose even a tiny bit of that.
Digital Foundry seems to agree: https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2021-forza-horizon-5-xbox-platform-comparison
However, Forza Horizon 5 is on another level on Xbox Series X and it’s one of the few games where I prefer the 30fps quality mode to its 60fps equivalent. The increase in fidelity and the more graceful LOD transitions combined with the upgraded visuals elevate it significantly beyond performance mode. True, it’s not 60fps but the motion blur is the best I’ve seen in bridging the gap.
