Thanks to the cell-shading technology, Borderlands 3 brings a fresh and unique look. Yes, the game feels and looks different compared to the other shooters on the market, and there is a lot of humor implemented into the story (ergo, the quest missions).

Visually, the game offers good picture quality but it’s not the lightest title out there. Still, a decent mid-range machine should be okay for Badass details. For today’s comparison, we have prepared two fast NVIDIA Ampere video cards – the GeForce RTX 3080 (130W) and RTX 3060 (130W).
