How To Display Forza Horizon 5 FPS Counter In-Game
The Forza Horizon 5 game is awesome and there are plenty of new races to unlock and rewards to gain. We have really been enjoying this game, especially playing it on our Windows PCs. However, if you are anything like us then you will want to keep an eye on your FPS whilst playing Horizon 5, to make sure you are getting a decent frame rate.
If you weren’t already aware, Forza Horizon 5 has an in-game FPS counter which you can choose to display on your screen. So while you are racing around or discovering new areas and roads, you can have the FPS showing in the top corner of your screen, instead of having to use another program or third-party software.
If you are suffering from extremely low fps in the game then it might be worth checking the system requirements to make sure your PC meets the minimum specs.
Why should I show my FPS in Forza Horizon 5?
Frames per second (or FPS) basically show you how many frames your graphics card can render each second, or how many frames your monitor can display each second.

You can then go on to adjust graphics settings and tweaking options to help boost your FPS.
