I need to know how other people's computers are performing in Borderlands, since mine is performing so bad.
Even tho i have a decent rig with a gtx 680.

Please post your system specs, resolution and operation system.

Turn all the settings to on/max.
Then stand here, and check your fps.

My rig is:

Motherboard: ASUS P6T SE X58
Memmory: CORSAIR 6GB DDR3 XMS3 INTEL I7 9XX PC12800 1600MHZ CL9
Cpu: INTEL CORE I7 950 3.06GHZ 8MB
GPU: Zotac GTX 680

Resolution: 1920x1080 120hz
Windows 7, 64bit

As you can see on my screenshot, 58 fps is low, in fact its so low its even 12 fps LOWER than my old gtx 460 in the exact same place, with the exact same settings.

So i created this thread just to see how other peoples computers perform.
Hopefully someone else has a gtx 680 out there with borderlands that can check this for me.


My rig does tremendously good in battlefield 3 and crysis 2, so its hard to believe that i have a faulty card or that the gtx680 gets bottlenecked by my CPU.

Please take my note into consideration before you post any comments about faulty cards or bottlenecks. Thank you.

I average 62FPS at the first base area. It rarely changes.

1920x1080 (everything maxed, 16xAF etc)

- i7-860 @3.6GHz
- HD5870 1GB
- 8GB DDR3 1600MHz
- Win 7 64bit

I looked after the game and my CPU was hardly used at all so I'm limited by my graphics card which still gets over 60FPS.

*I NORMALLY play using RadeonPro to force VSYNC ON to eliminate tearing. My monitor supports 50Hz at 1920x1080 so I drop AF to 4x, force 2xAA then VSYNC at 50FPS.

I noticed that my 62FPS basically didn't waver which I've NEVER seen in any other game with VSYNC disabled. It made me wonder if the game engine was somehow artificially capping at that frame rate.

Anyway, try to get above 60FPS if possible and force VSYNC on with whatever tools NVidia uses for that.

Again, I suspect it's something to do with the game and not your hardware or software settings that are the issue.
