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 1050 Ti 4GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB Performance Review

Playing DOTA 2 on the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB, which is a 4 year old graphics card will likely 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 198 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.

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 198 FPS, 1440p will get 200+ frame rate and if you are interested then 1080p gaming can get 200+ FPS. Based around the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $0.34, 1440p frames cost $0.45 each and then the 4K costs $0.75 per frame.
