I’ve played around 80 hours of Battleborn so far, almost from the beginning on. Already in the BETA I had performance issues, which I thought would be fixed until the finished release version. But this hasn’t happened yet, 3 weeks after release. Is this a joke?
I already read about other people complaining about Nvidia Kepler performance. But I don’t want to buy a new GPU. I can for example run BF4 @60Hz Ultra in 4K. But Battleborn doesn’t even run on 640 x 480 Low. I mostly hit 60 FPS, but when I run in the middle of the map or do intensive fights my FPS drop. Sometimes around 10 FPS on the ice meltdown map, 30 on the other. The ice map is almost unplayable for me because of this reason.
My system specs:
- Core i7-3770K @4.4 GHz
- 16 GB DDR3-2133
- GTX 780 Ti @1306/3600 MHz
- 2 TB SSHD (Games only storage)
- Windows 8.1 Pro x64
Please don’t tell me this is a bottleneck. Battleborn looks like ■■■■ compared to BF4 and should run even in 4K Low without a problem. I turned down the textures as well to save VRAM, so it will only hover around 2.5 GB. I won’t switch my GPU for this game as there is currently no GPU worth my money (I want to survive until the 1080Ti comes out for real 4K performance).
