Just a few days away from the official premiere of Borderlands 3, it's no wonder that there are graphic benchmarks on the web, showing which of the chipsets are performing best in this production. The good news is that a lower end card (e.g. GeForce GTX 1650) is enough to enjoy a medium-quality gaming experience. But if you dream of having fun on the highest settings, you'll need a decent hardware, such as the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti.
PCGamer published a comprehensive entry presenting the results of benchmarks conducted in Borderlands 3. One of the most interesting things is the presentation of graphic settings that have the greatest impact on the performance of the game. An RTX 2060 card was used in this test. As it turned out, the highest FPS increase was recorded after the volumetric fog was switched off (by 24%), as well as when the leaf details and draw distance reduced (both improved by 12%). The smallest influence on the game has the quality of characters, terrain or shadows. Detailed results of this benchmark can be seen below.
Many other cards have also been tested to see how they are doing in Borderlands 3. The results only confirm what we wrote earlier - we will run the game even on medium-quality equipment, but to get the best out of the title you need the best the top shelf has to offer.
On the lowest settings in 1920x1080 resolution, the Radeon RX 560 4GB is enough, achieving no less than 30 FPS. GeForce GTX 1050 Ti delivers 60 fps gameplay.
In the same resolution, at least a GeForce GTX 1650 would be a good way to get the game to run in about 30 FPS in Ultra.
To get the game started on highest setting in 30 fps at 2560x1440, you will need a GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and the best performance will be provided by the RTX 2080 Ti.
The official hardware requirements of Borderlands 3 can be found here. The title will be released on September 13 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and the first reviews fill the fans of the series optimism.
