Benchmark scores in other reviews are only comparable when this exact same configuration is used.

We tested the public Epic Games Launcher release version of Borderlands 3 (not a press pre-release). We also installed the latest drivers from AMD and NVIDIA, which both have GameReady support for the game.

Graphics Memory Usage

Using a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, which has 11 GB of VRAM, we measured the game's memory usage at the highest setting with the Ultra texture pack enabled.

At lower resolutions, VRAM usage is quite light, considering we used the "Badass" preset. At 4K, the requirements look about right, ensuring that 8 GB VRAM cards can handle the title.

There's a significant difference in memory consumption between DX11 and DX12. What's surprising is that DX12 uses less memory at 4K than DX11.
