Borderlands 2 Image Quality Settings


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. FXAA was enabled.


Benchmark Results: The Sapphire Radeon HD 7790 Dual-X OC and the Gigabyte Radeon HD 7790 OC were just a single FPS apart at 1920×1080 and just 1-2 FPS faster than the EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti SSC in Borderlands 2. Very close race here with no significant difference between the cards at 1080p resolutions.
