TS:Borderlands 2 GPU & CPU Performance Test
Borderlands 2 GPU & CPU Performance Test - TechSpot Reviews

The trailer looked fun, never got into BL1 but someday I might try BL2

Surprised that a 6950 is only on par with a 560 @1080p

But anyway an i5-2500k and a 6950 CF should get 60fps @2560x1440, and if I got physX working then it would roc

Interesting benchmarks! Hmm AMD cpus not doing too good for this specific game. I officially feel bad for my cpu after playing this. Upgrade time!

Game is amazingly fun in coop, and a big upgrade from Borderlands 1 in terms of everything I would say, especially the absurd amount of particles, debris, and stuff flying around rendered by Physx.

It looks awesome.. everything max'd out and capped at 60fps, never see any drop more than a frame or 2 in the most stressful of situations..

More to the point.. the music.. I know the first games music was good BUT damn the sound track is nice..

I find the equipment interface a bit shit (designed for console) but that would be my biggest gripe I think..
That and the loot system... First to pick something up wins..

Would be interesting to see a "World of Borderlands" mmo.. think of all the options out there it would be a very popular choice (can't do same sub model as wow..)

1090T + 660 TI driving a U2412M: 60 capped, lows of 55s with PhysX at High. I'm quite pleased with this little setup.

670 heavily OC'd, 2700k@4.5, 2560x1440 max all, physX on, no issues.

It is very interesting to see the scaling power not only between GPU's, but CPU's and their overclocks as well. Seems this game is a great benchmark tool, across all types of hardware?

I might switch for physX next round, and just hope games I like use it

Hmm I'm surprised to see the Core i3 and Pentium G series missing from there - that would have been very interesting to see in the mix, given that a LOT of budget gaming rigs would be running such a CPU.
The CPU-based PhysX is not much of a surprise given how nVidia is intentionally not optimizing it to make their GPUs look better.

I may be getting spoiled by the Guild Wars 2 and this review, but is there a trend towards more CPU-heavy games starting? I'm wondering if I should pick up a motherboard that could actually OC my 2500k for the future...
