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 5700 XT 8GB

Low Vs Ultra Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB Performance Review

Playing DOTA 2 on the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB, which is a 1 year old graphics card will likely get a very strong 200+ FPS. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

As this is a relatively powerful GPU, especially when comparing it to DOTA 2 rec requirements, it would make more sense if you pushed it up to 1440p or 4K, where even at Ultra 4K graphics settings the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB will still get a solid 200+ FPS.

With a system housing a graphics card like the Radeon RX 5700 XT 8GB and some 4GB RAM, we will see a strong 4K Ultra result in DOTA 2. Look for a processor like the AMD Ryzen 7 2700X CPU to go with this setup and Ultra is a sure thing.

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 5700 XT 8GB launch price, we calculate the cost per frame at different resolutions. 1080p Ultra frames will cost $0.18, 1440p frames cost $0.23 each and then the 4K costs $0.39 per frame.
