Borderlands fans are sure to love this but for those who are looking at it for the first time, don’t be fooled by its name. Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is as badass of a game as she is in the original Borderlands games.

Many fans argue that Tiny Tina is the best NPC and side content of Borderlands.

It looks like the developers agree too because now we have this masterpiece.

Now, we know it’s easy to get caught up in the moment especially if you’re a huge fan but hold your horses. Set aside reading tutorials about how to level up fast in Tiny Tina’s Wonderland. You have to know first, how certain are you that your PC can run Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands?

It’s an action game. It’s a shooting game. It’s a fantasy adventure. Its graphics quality is fantastic. Based on these things alone, it seems like the game requires a lot. But does it really?

In this article, we’re here to tell you what specs you need to have to run Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands. You will not only answer the question of whether you have to upgrade or retain the current PC or laptop that you have, but we will also include our suggestions and comments to help you along the way.

CPU

The minimum recommended specs to run Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands is an Intel Core i5-3570 or an AMD FX-8350. It is said that this line of AMD processors do not fare well against its Intel counterparts and we agree. Based on user benchmarks, the Intel i5-3570 is better in virtually all criterions.

If you’re looking to enjoy and appreciate the game in the most beautiful and vivid way, you ought to have, at the very least, an Intel Core i7-4770 or an AMD Ryzen 5 2600.

Unlike the minimum CPU requirements, the i7-4770 and the Ryzen 5 2600 are pretty close when put side-by-side. You definitely won’t go wrong with any of these two.

GPU

Even in the game’s trailer, Tiny Tina’s Wonderland obviously looks fantastic.

Can your current graphics card hold up?

Well, if you have an AMD Radeon RX 470 or an Nvidia GeForce GTX 960, then you’re basically good to go. You probably won’t be able to play in maximum settings, but you’ll be able to enjoy the game just fine.

If you refuse to accept anything less than high settings, then you ought to have at least an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 or an AMD Radeon RX 590. In particular, you should have the one with 6 GB VRAM.

Like the CPUs, these two have close results when pitted against each other. The RX 590 does seem like it has more merits, but it’s really up to the user.

RAM

Games nowadays have been particularly unforgiving when it comes to RAM requirements. Surprisingly, and apparently, Tina’s Tiny Wonderland only requires a minimum of 6 GB RAM.

Now, the game might run with 6 GB, but we doubt it will run smoothly.

You would also probably have to do a lot of RAM allocating techniques if you were to only have 6 GB of RAM.

The recommended RAM, on the other hand, is a whopping 16 GB. A far cry from the minimum requirement.

We think you should have 16 GB. Not only because it would make playing a whole lot better, it would also make doing other activities on your computer a lot smoother.

Storage

For you to download and play Tiny Tina’s Wonderland, you need to have at least 75 GB of storage.

This isn’t to say that you only need 75 GB of storage. For games like these, we expect a couple of patches once in a while. Each patch can go as low as a couple of megabytes to as big as one or two gigabytes.

For this reason, you should have at least double of 75 GB as your minimum storage. You should also take into consideration the things that you do on your own PC apart from playing Tiny Tina’s Wonderland.

For example, do you like to use Discord? Do you keep tabs on your emails?

If you’re on a budget, you may consider getting an HDD. It’s exponentially cheaper than an SSD, though a tad bit slower.

Operating System

For you to run Tiny Tina’s Wonderland, you have to have a minimum of Windows 10; and the latest pack, we might add.

You don’t need to upgrade for better specs too, and we would actually recommend not doing it until such time that you’re sure and upgrade would be safe and free of bugs.

Summary

Based on our experience with Borderlands, GPU is probably the most important component for your PC or laptop to effectively run the game.

Surprisingly, shooting games aren’t that reliant on multiple CPU cores. Though since this is also a role playing game, it would do you well to have a decent CPU.

Apart from a good GPU, you should also make sure that you have a decent RAM and high speed connection.
