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

Radeon RX 460 4GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 460 4GB Performance Review

Playing DOTA 2 on the Radeon RX 460 4GB, which is a 4 year old graphics card will likely return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

With such a strong 1080p performance the Radeon RX 460 4GB overshadows the DOTA 2 recommended specs. Push things up to Ultra 4K and we still get 200+ frames per sec. Using the graphics card release price, this is a $0.38 cost per FPS and a $0.22 per FPS at 1440p Ultra.

Crank things up is what we say. Ultra 4K is our recommended game settings for DOTA 2, as long as you have 4GB of RAM or more. A good processor component to help with these settings would be the AMD FX-6100.

To summarise, with this graphics card you do not need concern yourself too much regarding DOTA 2 frame rates. Because Ultra graphics setting can be turned on across all resolutions up to 4K quite comfortably.We are seeing 4K getting 200+ FPS, 1440p will get 200+ frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 200+ FPS. Based around the Radeon RX 460 4GB launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $0.17, 1440p frames cost $0.22 each and then the 4K costs $0.38 per frame.
