Almost as important as any in-game setting is the way your Windows installation is configured.
A great many problems and performance issues, especially stuttering, crashes and slowdowns, can be traced directly to sub-optimal settings in Windows and out-of-date or badly configured drivers.
If your FPS dips to a very low level at any point, or is constantly spiking, then this is a good indication that you need to adjust various settings, whether to raise your minimum FPS to at least around 30 FPS or more, or simply to stabilize your framerate to prevent stuttering.
Either method will provide you with an FPS counter which is displayed in the corner of your screen.
The easiest way to do this is to use the Stat FPS command, as covered under Console Commands in the Advanced Tweaking section.
Another method is to download and install the free FRAPS utility, then launch it prior to starting up Borderlands 2 or Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.
Furthermore, we've examined the benefits of NVIDIA’s new Dynamic Super Resolution (DSR) technology, which gives you 4K-quality graphics on any HD screen.
So jump on in and learn how each game setting affects performance, how you can optimize your system, and how you can squeeze even more graphical fidelity from both games.
Go through our Stable Gaming Guide to get your PC in the best shape, and at the very least make sure to update your Graphics Drivers to the latest available version.To successfully conduct any tweaking, you will need some way of objectively measuring your performance in Frames Per Second (FPS).
