After improving wheel support and stuttering issues in the recent update, developers Playground Games and Turn 10 studios have again patched Forza Horizon 3—this time focusing mostly on performance and stability.
“Performance and stability improvements stay a top priority for Playground Games and Turn 10, and a focus of future updates at the same time,” reads an update post around the Forza Horizon 3 site which references both PC and Xbox One iterations. The latest, though, does a great deal for the former.
It’s fixed the crash conditions affected certain Windows 10 players when entering both Maroondah Road Bucket List event plus the online Bucket List Blueprint challenges with mismatched DLC, by way of example. Some players suffered crashes while using the AMD R9 Fury X GPU on Windows 10—that’s been fixed too.
Performance-wise PC players are actually well served, while using latest update tackling these:
Players running four-core setups on Windows 10 should see CPU improvements
Improved thread layout changes for eight-core setups on Windows 10, contributing to improved performance
Improvement to performance in upgrades and tuning screens on Windows 10
Fixed a stall when driving in Byron Bay on Windows 10
Stall fixed when applying Drivatar liveries while driving on Windows 10
