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 2GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 460 2GB Performance Review

We can see that when playing DOTA 2 with a Radeon RX 460 2GB will return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. That result is taken on High graphics and a screen resolution of 1080p.

This GPU and game match up means this graphics hardware can comfortably play DOTA 2 at 4K. We expect to see around the 200+ FPS mark on Ultra 4K.

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 i5-6500 3.2GHz and Ultra 4K would be a smooth experience.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this Radeon RX 460 2GB card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play DOTA 2 at, because you can get 200+ FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 200+ frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 200+ FPS at 1080p Ultra.
