Windows 10’s Fall Creators Update has made all sorts of changes (including adding anti-cheat software), but one of the biggest behind the scenes tweaks seems to be in regards to gaming performance - Forza Motorsport 7’s stuttering has now been fixed, providing smoother performance.

Many folks who’ve pre-ordered Forza Motorsport 7 on PC are running into serious issues pre-loading the game on the Windows 10 Store. Users are reporting the preload is cancelling out at certain points, resulting in an error code and the download restarting. Some have hit 92GB before the 100GB download has cancelled, restarting right back at the beginning.
A number of PC players of the Forza Motorsport 7 demo have been complaining of stuttering, both during gameplay and within the menus. It also turns out that Forza 7 maxes out the usage of a single CPU core, rather than scaling the load across multiple threads and cores. According to developer Turn 10 Studios though, this was a conscious decision, designed to “minimise input latency.”
