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 1070

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1070 Performance Review

Getting the DOTA 2 running while using a GeForce GTX 1070 can see it could get a very strong 200+ FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

But then the GeForce GTX 1070 will get a solid big screen performance at 4K, with 200+ frames per second. So we expect you are likely to consider running the game in 4K or 1440p. If you are interested, this is a cost of $0.96 per FPS, assuming we take it based on the GPU’s launch price.

This graphics card, paired with at least 4GB system memory and a suitable processor, like the Intel Core i7-6700K 4-Core 4.0GHz would be perfect to run this game at 4K Ultra.

In summary, the GeForce GTX 1070 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 200+ FPS.
