Borderlands 3 DX11 benchmarks and performance analysis


We’ve tested dozens of graphics cards and CPUs in Borderlands 3, using the public release code at launch, to see what sort of hardware is needed to run the game at a variety of settings. Borderlands 3 can run fine across a wide range of hardware, though the highest quality settings and higher resolutions will as usual need powerful hardware to reach playable framerates. Full article, including updated testing results, is available here:
