Borderlands 2 – Windows 10 (PhysX High) Frame Rate

Borderlands 2 runs like crap under Windows 10 on a GTX 1080 when PhysX are on High, even with another GTX 1080 as a dedicated PhysX Card.


  1. You know the part where you go and get Roland? You also meet those Robots for the first time? Yea that big map. That map is where you stress PhysX (needs to be the first time you go through though since the Robots don't respawn the 2nd time through).
    Brings my 750 Ti from playing 90% of the game at above 60 FPS to playing it at like 15 FPS.

  2. I think this is a driver problem, I had a 660 and the game used to run fine; but when I went to play it again about 6 months ago it was running much worse than I remember it (bloodshot stronghold 15fps when it used to be about 40) – I had updated the drivers since the last time I played it but not much else.
    This is on Win 7 not Windows 10, one guy said he gets the exact same problem on Linux

    I now have a 1070 and the game still runs very jerkily; even if I do showfps it says the FPS are in the hundreds yet the game jerks and feels very laggy.

    I think NVIDIA possibly introduced a bug in their physx implementation in their newer drivers; I might do a test on a spare PC with my old 660 and older drivers to see if I can find out what happens

  3. Lol even with Physx on you seem to run Borderlands 2 better than I can. I have Intel i5 with Nividia GTX 960 and it lags even at Physx's lowest settings. Should I uninstall it?

  4. I run a Radeon build and I had great performance on win7 but obviously with PhysX on low but now on win 10 it runs like crap and changing settings doesn't seem to do much.

  5. Set your frames to unlimited, i did this and it drastically improved it, try disabling fxaa i think its called, im not sure why it just helped me. Maybe (im not much of a hardware guy) the parts dont have good synergy?
