Forza 5 is running at 1080p/60 fps. If Forza 5 was running at say 720p and 30-40 fps could it look like the e3 build? How much does 1080p/60fps downgrade visuals?
the difference between 720p and 1080p is a big gap in processing power, its also a big gap in graphic fidelity. You are going to see quite noticeable texture and especially sharp edge differences. As far as FPS, if the game is running smoothly at either FPS, the gap is much less noticeable, but typically, if its running at a lower framerate than 60, you will notice ever so slight lag, especially in fast twitch games. Racing, probably not as much.
