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 560 2GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 560 2GB Performance Review

Running a Radeon RX 560 2GB to play DOTA 2 shows us that we expect it to return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Those frames are achieved on DOTA 2 when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

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.

To summarise, this game runs easily using this graphics card at all resolutions. DOTA 2 gets 200+ FPS at 4K Ultra costing $0.36 per frame. But if that doesnt feel right for you then you can drop the graphics setting down to High for 200+ FPS costing $0.26 per frame. Otherwise you can get some great performance by moving down a resolution bracket to 1440p. 200+ FPS in Ultra 1440p costing $0.21 per frame or 1440p High gets 200+ FPS costing $0.15 per frame.
