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 RTX 2080

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2080 Performance Review

Running a GeForce RTX 2080 to play DOTA 2 shows us that we expect it to get a very strong 200+ FPS. Which is at High settings on 1080p performance.

At $1.51 per FPS at 4K, if we assume the GPU’s launch price. This GPU can play DOTA 2 at a respectable 200+ frame rate on 4K Ultra.

The GeForce RTX 2080 along with the right system memory, 4GB, is very capable of getting top FPS results even at 4K Ultra graphics settings. We would recommend 4K as the way to go here. Especially if you have a Intel Core i7-8700K 6-Core 3.7GHz processor or better.

To summarise, this game runs easily using this graphics card at all resolutions. DOTA 2 gets 200+ FPS at 4K Ultra costing $1.51 per frame. But if that doesnt feel right for you then you can drop the graphics setting down to High for 200+ FPS costing $1.08 per frame. Otherwise you can get some great performance by moving down a resolution bracket to 1440p. 200+ FPS in Ultra 1440p costing $0.90 per frame or 1440p High gets 200+ FPS costing $0.64 per frame.
