Borderlands 3 Benchmarked at 8K: also eats up $2499 NVIDIA TITAN RTX (Page 2)

Graphics Cards Used

Gears 5 required a graphics card with over 8GB of VRAM to even run the game at 8K, but Borderlands 3 isn't so harsh. Well, I digress -- it is, it'll run on a card with 8GB of VRAM (which is why I've included the RX 5700 XT in the run, and if you guys want I can re-run it with the RTX SUPER range of cards in a follow-up piece).


NVIDIA has a couple of options with the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, TITAN Xp, GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, and TITAN RTX. I've tested all of these graphics cards at 8K for a total of 5 cards, with even harsher frame rates than Gears 5 at 8K.

The best thing about the TITAN RTX is that it can be used in any VRAM starved situation, with it quickly becoming my go-to graphics card when I'm testing games at 8K. Seeing the VRAM clock over 16GB in some instances is pretty insane, but 8K isn't doing that here in Borderlands 3 -- and it didn't do it in Gears 5, either.
