Here are the Borderlands 3 system requirements and PC graphics options

Gearbox Software's Borderlands 3 recently went gold with a worldwide release fast approaching. Before that, however, PC players can now compare their hardware with the system requirements the studio shared today, which come alongside a list of all the graphics options it will feature for tweaking.

As a whole, the requirements are rather modest by modern standards, asking for mid-range graphics cards from AMD or Nvidia even in the recommended tier. Here are the minimum and recommended specifications that were listed today, note that the latter is for experiencing Borderlands 3 in 1440p:

MINIMUM SPECS 1080p Gaming

  • OS – Windows 7/8/10 (latest service pack)
  • Processor – AMD FX-8350 (Intel i5-3570)
  • Memory – 6GB RAM
  • Graphics card – AMD Radeon™ HD 7970 (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 2GB)

Jumping over to the graphics settings list, there is a whole lot of them to go through. In addition to the usual options that tinker with visual fidelity, we can also see some useful settings like a field of view slider that starts at 90 degrees, resolution scaling, in-game FPS stats, and more. AMD is also coming in with FidelityFX Sharpening support.
