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 Super 8GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce RTX 2080 Super 8GB Performance Review

Running a GeForce RTX 2080 Super 8GB to play DOTA 2 shows us that we expect it to return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. With that performance recorded at 1920x1080 res when running High graphics.

Playing DOTA 2 on Ultra 4k is certainly possible with this graphics card and we expect it will return around 200+ frames per second at that top scale resolution.

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 i9-9900K 8-Core 3.6GHz and Ultra 4K would be a smooth experience.

To summarise, this game runs easily using this graphics card at all resolutions. DOTA 2 gets 200+ FPS at 4K Ultra costing $1.26 per frame. But if that doesnt feel right for you then you can drop the graphics setting down to High for 200+ FPS costing $0.90 per frame. Otherwise you can get some great performance by moving down a resolution bracket to 1440p. 200+ FPS in Ultra 1440p costing $0.75 per frame or 1440p High gets 200+ FPS costing $0.54 per frame.
