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 960 Ti 4GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB Performance Review

After playing DOTA 2 on a GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB it will get a very strong 200+ FPS. Which is at High settings on 1080p performance.

When looking at the recommended requirements for DOTA 2 we can see that this GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB is far better served running it on Ultra even at 4K, where it would achieve 200+FPS. But it could cost around $1.40 per FPS at 4K. Compare this to Ultra 1440p, which is a more reasonable $0.83 per FPS.

The GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB along with the right system memory, 4GB, is very capable of getting top FPS results even at 4K Ultra graphics settings. We would recommend 4K as the way to go here. Especially if you have a Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz processor or better.

In summary, the performance delivered by this graphics card easily overpowers that needed by DOTA 2. We expect to get a very strong frame rate of 200+ FPS at 1080p Ultra, but would advise moving up to 1440p Ultra to get 200+ frames per second or even 200+ FPS at 4K Ultra as the GeForce GTX 960 Ti 4GB can handle this. It just comes down to your preferred resolution then tweak your graphics settings to deliver the desired effects, without a care for performance.
