This is the first game I've run where system memory is completely consumed. My hardware is as follows:

iMac 4k 2015 - 21.5" (iGPU only)
i5-5675R @ 3.10 GHz
8 GB RAM
Aorus Gaming Box 1070 via TB3 > TB2 adapter
Windows 10.0.17134

Like I said above, system RAM is completely consumed when running this game. I feel my results would have been much better with 16 GB.

VRAM usage ranges from 2.0 - 4.5 GB. It seems to be completely dependent on the quality preset, resolution doesn't make a difference. All testing was done on the iMac internal display using the new built-in W10 Graphics Switching (no Optimus support with my iGPU unfortunately).

1440p Low Dynamic OFF
720p ULTRA Dynamic Off

This is only the game that I couldn’t understand, my Rtx 2080ti performs overall worse than 1070 maxq dgpu on my host device, unlike other games. I hope it’s just driver optimization matter. FHD and 4K benchmarks on Ultra (auto hardware detection)

I have the same issue with Forza 4.

The mobile 1050ti maxq performs better than the 1080ti.

Pending: Add my system information and expected eGPU configuration to my signature to give context to my posts

@joi_kansai , @xcrowtrobotx , unlock framerate and disable Vsync to boost your FPS numbers.

@itsage, Forza Horizon 4 demo is a free 28GB download from MS store. Did you want to do some TB3 benchmarks? Desktop performance across different dGPUs, resolutions and qualities, useful for comparison, has been tested by several sites:

M.2 (NVMe SSD port) eGPU performance using ADT-Link R43SG

Here's a morsel of my tinkerings awaiting some hardware for release.  This is using the system's M.2 NMVe SSD port rather than Thunderbolt 3. Performance is spectacular.

-MacBook Pro 15 inch 2018, i7-8850 6-core, 32GB Ram, 1TB SSD
-Asus XG Station Pro
-EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 (EVGA 11G-P4-6593-KR)

FPS: 68 (FHD, Ultra)

It may be interesting, that with 1440p the result is 65-67 FPS.

This is good evidence that this game is limited by the TB3 bandwidth. Further, on a TB2->TB3 adapter this same  GTX1080Ti only makes 44 FPS on 1440p.

2018 15" MBP & 2015 13" MBP connected to RTX2080Ti GTX1080Ti GTX1080 Vega56 RX580 R9-290 GTX680

@nando4 Is it possible to use M.2 Nvme ssd port on dell xps 9560 please? I am looking to get more performance than i get currently with my Aorus box @ gtx 1080.  Thank you

Finally got around to installing this demo and benchmarking.  My interest got sparked over the Radeon VII testing in Bootcamp posts in which the game is showing the limitation of TB3.  Here's my info and results (not so sure why my plots are much more spread out than the ones already posted here):

2014 Mac mini , Core i5-4278U, Dual Core @ 2.6GHz, Turbo Boost to 3.1GHz, 16 GB RAM, 1 TB HDD
ASUS XG Station Pro w/Apple's TB2->TB3 adapter
EVGA 1070 Ti Gamers (Blower)

Benchmark on FHD and Ultra preset with Vertical Sync turned off.

39 FPS running from the mini's HDMI port to external display:

2014macmini win10 1070ti fh4 machdmi

30 FPS running from eGPU's HDMI port to external display:

2014macmini win10 1070ti fh4 egpuhdmi

I didn't know that there would be this much of a difference between the internal and external HDMI.  Does anybody know that this is always the case with Macs in general or all headless types of PC's?
