Making Mayhem in Borderlands 3 with AMD Technologies

Borderlands 3 is built on the Unreal 4 engine with support for DX12 and is optimized for AMD Radeon GPU

Today, gamers can dive head-first into the world of Borderlands 3 and take on the Children of the Vault, a violent cult seeking the famed caches of alien technology called Vaults. Choose your favorite Vault Hunter to stop the cult leaders, the Calypso Twins, and their interstellar fanatical threat with over a billion guns at your disposal.

Borderlands 3 is built on the Unreal 4 engine with support for DX12 and is optimized for AMD Radeon graphics cards, including the new Radeon RX 5700 series based on the RDNA gaming architecture, providing breathtaking visuals, amazing performance, ultra-responsive, silky-smooth gameplay, and exciting features, including:


  1. Asynchronous Compute – Allows Radeon GPUs to execute multiple tasks at the same time. This GPU multithreading capability enables efficient graphics and visual effects workload distribution, resulting in higher framerates.
  2. AMD FidelityFX Offers a dynamic sharpening filter to draw out detail in low-contrast areas for a sharper gaming experience. It provides a significant improvement in image clarity, counteracting the softening caused by other post-process effects.
  3. AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR Technology – Radeon FreeSync is the most popular adaptive sync display technology available, with over 750 supported monitors tested and certified to deliver fluid, tear-free, artifact-free gaming. FreeSync 2 HDR introduces a new dimension of vibrancy to screens by enabling darker blacks and brighter whites without oversaturation or clipping.
  4. Multithreading of Command Buffers – Ensures more traffic from the AMD Ryzen processor reaches the AMD Radeon graphics card faster for higher performance, better graphics and reduced latency.

With support for Borderlands 3, AMD’s Radeon Software Adrenalin 2019 Edition 19.9.2 offers the best possible performance for gamers right out of the gate. With DX12, AMD Radeon RX 5700 series graphics cards outperform their similarly priced competition, the GeForce RTX 2060 and RTX 2060 Super, providing a better gaming experience for Vault Hunters looking for the best visual fidelity as they make the most mayhem in Borderlands 3.
