Despite a close cooperation with AMD, Forspoken should no longer support Polaris graphics cards. These came onto the market in 2016 and were very interesting for the broad mass of gamers in terms of price, unlike today's graphics cards. Therefore, read below why this is the case and which solution is possible for Polaris owners.

The action RPG Forspoken offers some very interesting technical aspects, although some of these cause bad feedback on the game. As the first game for the PC, there is support for Direct Storage, which has reduced the loading times in our tests from a good five seconds to half a second . The system requirements of the title are also relatively high. 24 GiB of RAM, a Core i7-8700K or Ryzen 5 3600 and a Radeon RX 6700XT or RTX 3070 should only be sufficient for 1440p and 30 fps.

In order to be able to play the ultra preset smoothly, it should already be a Ryzen 7 5800X or Core i7-12700 including RX 6800XT or RTX 4080. However, reports are already piling up online that the system requirements are too low. Nvidia's RTX 3000 series graphics cards, which were only equipped with 8 GiB graphics memory, already seem to be struggling with high texture details. This hinders texture streaming and degrades texture quality in certain parts of the game.

This has caused resentment in the community, which is now accusing Square Enix of insufficient optimization for the PC version. But the highlight is yet to come. Despite working closely with AMD, Forspoken doesn't seem to work on Polaris GPUs. While AMD's RX 400 and RX 500 models aren't brand new anymore, they don't seem to be able to cope with the new game due to the lack of DirectX 12_1 support. Meanwhile, it's said to work flawlessly on Nvidia's GTX 900 series models, even though they were released two years earlier. However, they seem to support DirectX-12_2, which Forspoken seems to require.
