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.
