Forza 7 Official Release PC Usage

So, I guess the old thread about core usage disappeared, can’t find with search…

I thought some people might be curious about how the released game utilizes my PC. Do with this info as you please.


I7 7700k @ 4.7GHz
EVGA GTX 1080 @1960MHz
16GB DDR4 2400MHz RAM
Intel 600p M.2 1TB
ASRock Z270 Killer SLI
All drivers up to date

Tested on Suzuka in heavy rain with Focus RS. Game is on 1440p max settings with 100% buffer

CPU core 0 is maxed all the time in menu and in race. Remaining 7 cores are at 10% load in both menus and race, with misc spikes during race. I noticed that the game randomly relieves load from Core 0 down to ~20% which causes heavy frame drop. Very noticeable mid race, can cause what I call “jumping” (you flash forward a couple car lengths).

GPU load varies from 30-40% in cockpit, and 30-50% in follow cam. Uses 4GB VRAM

The game used a very consistent 7.7GB of RAM.

Overall impression, game looks absolutely stunning when Core 0 maintains steady load. However, when it drops load randomly, frame drops and terrain disappears. The stands full of spectators on Indy’s home stretch we’re very difficult to load while racing.

1440P Montior at 100Hz

I’ve noticed the exact same thing. One core temp is almost 15-c higher than the rest.
