DOTA 2 packshot image
A Valve backed sequel to the very popular Warcraft 3 mod, Defense of the Ancients.
Confusingly, the official remake of the mod was called Heroes of Newerth and released earlier this year after a long Beta period. Heroes of Newerth and defense of the Ancients suffer from the incredibly steep learning curve and noob slamming. Our reviewer Squee reviewed Heroes of Newerth earlier this year and had a tough time as he was new to the game.
Valve are getting into the project to try and level the playing field with their player matching server skills.

DOTA 2

GeForce GTX 950 2GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 950 2GB Performance Review

Getting the DOTA 2 running while using a GeForce GTX 950 2GB can see it could return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. And those results are assuming a 1920x1080 screen resolution at High setting level.

Playing DOTA 2 on Ultra 4k is certainly possible with this graphics card and we expect it will return around 153 frames per second at that top scale resolution.

Finding a PC with this gpu or better would return some strong FPS in DOTA 2. We would definitely recommend running at 4K screen res and on ultra, before trying any lower screen resolution. You would also need at least 4GB of RAM. Perhaps couple this gaming PC with a processor that's as powerful as the Intel Core i5-4460 3.2GHz and Ultra 4K would be a smooth experience.

In summary, the GeForce GTX 950 2GB is clearly an overpowered bit of hardware for DOTA 2, but it certainly gives you the choice of desired in game visuals. With 1080p Ultra coming in at 200+ FPS, then you have 1440p Ultra with 200+ frames per second and on up to 4K resolution Ultra will see 153 FPS.
