AMD FX-8350 8-Core Black Edition Processor ReviewMon, Oct 22, 2012 - 11:00 PM
Borderlands 2 is a space western first-person role-playing shooter video game that was developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K Games. It is the sequel to 2009’s Borderlands and was released for the Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms. Borderlands 2 was developed by Gearbox Software and published by 2K Games on September 18, 2012 in North America.
Borderlands 2 runs on a heavily modified version of Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 3. We tested Borderlands 2 with vSync and depth of field disabled. We increased the general image quality settings and turned on 16x AF. PhysX effects were set to low to keep things fair as possible between AMD and NVIDIA cards.
Benchmark Results: Borderlands 2 is the first actual game that we can see some performance scaling with regards to the processor being used. The AMD FX-8350 was second only to the Intel Core i7 3770K! The new FX-8350 was able to edge out the previous generation Bulldozer FX-8150 by 8.46 frames per second at 1280×1024 and ~1.5 frames per second at 1920×1080.
