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 1080 Ti

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Performance Review

The experience of playing DOTA 2 through a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti is going to get a very strong 200+ FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

But then the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 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 $1.40 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 i7-6900K 8-Core 3.2GHz would be perfect to run this game at 4K Ultra.

In summary, if you are looking to play DOTA 2 in Ultra then you have come with the right graphics card. The GeForce GTX 1080 Ti can chew through the graphical performance needs of the game with relative ease. 1080p Ultra will return 200+ frames, then the larger screen resolution of 1440p can deliver 200+ FPS, with the 4K resolution seeing 200+ FPS in Ultra as well.
