Borderlands 3 Benchmarked: TITAN RTX Can't Even Hit 4K 60FPS

Borderlands 3 goes under the GPU microscope: what do you need to play it at 1080p, 1440p, or 4K?

Introduction

Borderlands 3 is finally here and with it are questions on what graphics card you'll need to run it at, so we've thrown through a bunch of graphics cards through three resolutions: 1080p, 1440p and of course, 4K.

Gearbox Software upgraded to Unreal Engine 4 with Borderlands 3, and while there is DX12 support for the game -- it has issues so our benchmarks are exclusively using DX11. The game has some great graphics for what it is, and looks pretty good if you've got everything cranked up to maximum.

There's a built-in benchmark which makes things much easier on us benchmarkers, so all results we've captured have been taken from the Borderlands 3 built-in benchmark.

AMD has its own special sauce inside of Borderlands 3 with optimizations for Radeon graphics cards, but that's more on the DX12 side of things so there is no special performance here on either side.

Before you jump into the game, you'll want to get the Borderlands 3-optimized drivers for your GeForce or Radeon graphics card. Both companies have drivers available -- with links to them below.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Anthony Garreffa

Anthony is a long time PC enthusiast with a passion of hate for games to be built around consoles. With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
