Forza Horizon 5's latest update delivers DLSS 2.4, FSR 2.2, and new ray tracing options

High quality upscaling and in-race ray tracing are now available in Forza Horizon 5

Forza Horizon 5 has just recieved a major update, adding support for new vehicles, customisation options, a new test track, and extended ray tracing options on PC. Additionally, both DLSS 2.4 and FSR 2.2 have been added to the PC version of Forza Horizon 5 on PC. 

Following the positive reception of Forza Horizon 5's TAA support, Playground Games has added support for temporal upscaling to their game. DLSS (and DLAA) will be available for owners of Nvidia's RTX graphics hardware, and AMD's FSR 2.2 technology will be available for owners of graphics cards from AMD, Nvidia, and Intel. Playground Games has confirmed that DLSS 3 support is not currently planned.

On PC, two new ray tracing settings are coming to Forza Horizon 5, with Ultra and Extreme offering gamers the ability to turn on ray tracing in free roam mode and during races. Ultra mode will enable ray tracing at half of your screen's resolution, and extreme mode will enable full resolution ray tracing. In photo mode, ray tracing has also been added to the vehicles of AI drivers, improving the fidelity of screenshots with ray tracing enabled.

The chart below showcases how Forza Horizon 5's new ray tracing update affects Forza Horizon 5's visuals.

Previously, ray tracing was a feature that was exclusive to Forza Horizon 5's Forzavista mode. Soon, ray tracing will be available during gameplay to PC gamers with strong enough hardware.

Was hyped about DLSS, but crashing to desktop every 30min with it enabled made me less hype about it. Quote

Did this need DLSS? I thought it was so well optimised almost any mainstream pc that isnt high end could run almost max graphics and get outstanding FPS.

Or am I getting that wrong?Quote

I think Nvidia are trying to make DLSS the industry standard that is in everything, even when it's not needed. Imagine the lead Nvidia would have over AMD if DLSS was literally in every game. It wouldn't matter whether it was needed or not as Nvidia would lead the charge by 20-30%.Quote

Still, if you're on a 2060 for example I guess you would want to use it to get high FPS while maintaining high graphics settings, if nothing else, this at least enables 4k gameplay for those users.

Also, they did add in raytracing, so even if you're on a 3070 you'll probably want DLSS if you'd like to enable RT at 4k.Quote

I have to play at quite modest settings to ensure minimums stay above 120fps even with my hardware: https://i.imgur.com/hsYTEKP.png

(I usually play with 120fps cap)Quote
