Forza Horizon 4 is the next game in the franchise and this time the game will bring us all to the UK. Forza Horizon has always been a technical marvel and you can play it on the PC with maximum configuration and resolution, and if you have an AMD graphics card, you have an advantage over Nvidia when playing in Forza Horizon 4.
Performance difference between AMD and Nvidia:
AMD claims that its graphics cards can beat Nvidia in Forza Horizon 4 benchmarks, the AMD RX Vega 64 is reported to be 12-20% better than the GTX 1080. The same is true for other card graphics as well. The RX Vega 56 has an advantage over the GTX 1070 Ti of 2-12%, the lead is higher compared to the GTX 1070, in which case the Vega 56 is 13-22% better.
The midrange graphics cards AMD RX 580 are 12-16% better than the GTX 1060 6GB and the AMD RX 570 is able to outperform the GTX 1050 Ti with a performance of up to 58% better when playing Forza Horizon 4,
Forza Horizon 4 Benchmarks
The hardware that Forza Horizon 4 was compared to was the Intel Core i7-7700K, which operates at 4 GHz, 16 GB of RAM and the latest drivers. At 1080p, AMD Vega 64 delivered 155 FPS in the air and 162 FPS in liquid cooling. The GTX 1080, on the other hand, was able to deliver 141 fps. All of these numbers were recorded in the high preset.
When you changed the configuration in Ultra, you saw a performance decrease as expected. The AMD Vega 64 was able to launch Forza Horizon 4 with 125 FPS, while the GTX 1080 ran the game at 111 FPS. At a resolution of 1440p, the FPS dropped significantly.
The AMD Vega 64 could still run the game with 100 FPS, the GTX 1080 with 89 FPS. Keep in mind that both graphics cards can perform the game with more than 60 FPS impressively, but that’s what you expect from these high-end graphics cards.
Changing the settings in 4K drastically reduced the performance of these graphics cards. At high settings, the AMD RX Vega 64 was able to deliver the game at 85 FPS and with the ultra pre-configured 68 FPS.
The GTX 1080, on the other hand, was able to deliver 78 FPS and 72 FPS respectively. Considering that these two graphics cards run Forza Horizon 4 with 4K 60 FPS, the performance is quite impressive, but AMD has an advantage, although it may be light in the upper presets.
AMD has worked closely with developers to provide this service, but it’s worth noting that these numbers come from AMD. You should also check the references of other sources. Also worth mentioning that, while the GTX 1080 and AMD Vega 64 find a similar price and you can find Vega 64 variant is cheaper than the Nvidia GTX 1080 depending on where you live, the supply of Vega card continues to be quite thin and that is a win in a single game.
