PC System Analysis For Borderlands 3 Requirements
Borderlands 3 requires at least a Radeon RX 590 8GB or GeForce GTX 1060 to meet recommended requirements running on high graphics setting, with 1080p resolution. This hardware should achieve 60FPS. 16 GB will also be needed to achieve the Borderlands 3 rec specs and get 60FPS. Borderlands 3 needs a graphics card thats at least as powerful as a GeForce GTX 680/Radeon HD 7970 paired with FX-8350/Core i5-3570 3.4GHz CPU to match the min specs. This PC setup will deliver 25-35 Frame Per Second at Low graphics setting on 720p resolution. Another thing to consider is the DirectX capability of your GPU. Borderlands 3 needs a GPU capable of running DirectX 11. We suggest a 3 year old PC to play smoothly.
