    Please try to check your TV settings. Maybe your TV went to a dolby vision mode (and not back) and does not support VRR and ALLM in this mode. If the xbox does not show up the features, the TV does not report those features back.
    I had to deactivate DV on my xbox because else my x900h TV does not have a game-mode and the lag makes games unplayable.

    The TV was in normal hdr mode as I was using 120hz and Dolby vision only works for 60hz on lg CX.

    Forza Horizon 5 Series S footage in 60fps Performance mode.

    There are some very serious cutbacks in comparison to Series X Performance mode. Still time to improve things, but this would pretty well explain how FH5 looks so amazing(on Series X). They truly aimed for a next gen target for the flagship version, and so other versions will need heavy paring back.

    What's so bad that it needs improving?

    Two things I really liked about that.
    • An apparent large focus on the audio of the game. Yes!
      • I wonder if they are making heavy use of the audio acceleration hardware?
    • The stories sound more interesting and might be enough to get me to try a driving game for the first time since the early 2000s.
    Regards,

    I think anybody who watches the video and has any reasonable eye for graphics will see the massive cutbacks that have been made. Did I make a mistake in assuming that people on this forum would understand this stuff better than your average gaming forum? :/

    Just from the off, the extreme pop-in and lack of anti-aliasing are wildly noticeable. Are you really unable to notice this?

    So how do you improve upon what they delivered with only 4TFs RDNA2? What do you suggest they scale back instead?

    They can reduce the population in the town :lol:
    I assume the game is dynamic daylight, you would assume it is since its open world but I havent seen any driving at night.
    I'ld look at doing something with the shadows, it looks like 2 cascade SM.
    Get rid of the parallax texture mapping

    and enable TV's motion interpolation to get that sweet smooth 60fps. It works wonders for games that don't need quick reflexes.
