Forza Horizon 5 Can Run at 60 FPS on Steam Deck With Settings Close to Xbox One Version, New Comparison Video Confirms

Submit

Forza Horizon 5 can run decently on the Steam Deck console with settings that are close to the Xbox One version of the game, as showcased by a new comparison video that has been shared online.

The new video, which has been put together by ElAnalistaDeBits, shows how the game runs on Steam Deck compared to the Xbox consoles. At 720p resolution and with FSR, the latest entry in the racing series can run at above 30 FPS at high settings and at 60 FPS at low settings, which are close to the settings used in the Xbox One version of the game. This is definitely impressive, also considering that Forza Horizon 5 is not yet a Steam Deck verified game.

Steam Deck Client Update Adds Per-Game Performance Profiles

 

- Please note that Forza Horizon 5 is not a verified game at this time. Its performance could improve in the coming months.
- The game does not support the Steam Deck's 16:10 aspect ratio, so it runs natively at 720p with FSR.
- Steam Deck is capable of running at 35fps on high settings (textures and environment geometry set to ultra). However, at some points it suffers from drops below 30fps.
- With all settings on Low (a setting similar to Xbox One), Steam Deck is able to maintain 60fps, but with some stuttering issues.
- Load times are faster on Steam Deck than Xbox One, but slower than Xbox Series despite using SSD.
- It's amazing to see a game like Forza Horizon 5, one of the most graphically impressive games today, on a handheld system. Its future (with optimization) is very promising.

Forza Horizon 5 is now available on PC, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and Xbox One worldwide. Learn more about the game by checking out Chris' review.

Forza Horizon 5 is yet another step up for the series and arguably the best racing game ever made. Offering a host of content across a fantastic representation of Mexico, its varied terrain and scenery, there's so much to explore and race. A massive roster of cars will perform all of these, each feeling different from the others, with a variety of upgrade and tuning options almost matching those of simulation titles. While there are a few minor niggles here and there, they are nearly so small as to be hardly worth mentioning. All in all, it's impossible not to recommend this for anybody, regardless of them being a fan of racing games or not, as this is that good.
