Borderlands 2 GPU & CPU Performance Test - TechSpot Reviews.

I finally got into a big enough fight last night where I wasn't getting a low frame rate so much as the game was pausing for like a half second here and there. Time to turn down physx from high, I guess.


Really? What system have you got? Got into a mega firefight last night with two others, and it never even dipped, other than for the occasional bit of network lag.

I love that Radeon cards actually lose FEWER FPS than Nvidia cards do when PhysX is enabled. That's some brilliant coding there, Nvidia...

On those GPU and CPU performance benches they do.

Does anyone else find it odd that they always test say 10 GPU's but always only one CPU and it is always the $1000 CPU? If it's a test of GPU And CPU, why not test various CPU's? You know a few in the $150-$300 area, Intel and AMD.


Oh then I read this at the end:
"It seems your CPU choice may be more crucial to Borderlands 2's performance than your GPU choice and you'll definitely want to play with a quad-core chip."

Which backs up what I write. If you feel the CPU could play a bigger factor, then why not test different CPU's?
