Horizon Forbidden West Performance Benchmark Review - 30 GPUs Tested

Recommended Posts


Hardware requirements of the game are pretty reasonable. In order to reach 60 FPS at 1080p with the highest settings you only need a RX 5700 XT, RTX 4060 or RX 6600 XT. Got a 1440p monitor? Then you need a RTX 4060 Ti, RTX 3070, RX 6700 XT or RX 7700 XT. 4K60? Radeon RX 6900 XT, RTX 4070 Ti and RTX 3090 Ti are required—not exactly mid-range, but still pretty manageable. As always we opted for our own custom test scene, which runs in a typical open-world location with vegetation and water. There's some indoors location that run at much higher FPS. Both AMD and NVIDIA cards are positioned roughly where we usually see them in our performance charts. Intel's A770 falls a bit behind, despite the use of optimized drivers. It's interesting to see that the older RDNA 2 cards run very well in Horizon Forbidden West, a bit better than the modern RDNA 3 models (for example RX 6800 XT beating RX 7800 XT).





Just finished my first playthrough of the base game and DLC (which was included), about 105 hours total doing a healthy amount of side quests and such. Very much enjoyed the title personally and highly recommend it. The landscapes in this game are beautiful IMHO.
