Borderlands 3's Successful, Buggy Launch

A tweet from Randy Pitchford has word from the Gearbox boss on the success of the launch of Borderlands 3, saying, "Fun Fact: On PC, the data is that the launch day peak concurrent players of Borderlands 3 is about *twice-as-high* as the all time peak concurrent players of Borderlands 2. WOW! You guys are great!" As was noted yesterday, this has not been without its performance issues, however, so DSOGaming has a handy roundup of tips on how to minimize or even eliminate stuttering issues that some players are suffering:

The first thing you need to do is close the Epic Games Store launcher after going in-game. A great number of gamers has reported that this has resolved their stuttering issues with Borderlands 3. Furthermore, online functionalities are working properly so we suggest doing so if you have any stutters.

Some other users claimed that they were able to reduce the stutters they were experiencing by setting Texture Streaming on Low or Medium. On the other hand, some other users stated that they were able to reduce the stuttering issues by using a previous version of the GeForce drivers. For what its worth, we were able to play the game smoothly with the latest 436.30 drivers. While there were some minor frame pacing issues, our G-Sync monitor was able to smooth out the experience. Still, we experienced less frame pacing spikes when we closed the Epic Games Store launcher.

After taking ages to install, we were able to run the game and we did not experience any stuttering issues on our Intel i9 9900K with our NVIDIA GeForce RTX2080Ti. As said, we did close Epic Games Store when we went in-game. So yeah, it appears that this solution can work on certain systems. Its also worth mentioning that weve installed the game on an SSD and were using 16GB of RAM at 3600Mhz.
