Performance Games - Dota 2 / FireStorm
Performance - DOTA 2 (DX11)
We'll start with a massive online multiplayer game at 1920x1080, our choice is DOTA 2. While the majority of the time players might be running around alone, slaying creeps and heroes alike, the worst-case scenario in a game of Dota 2 usually is a large-scale teamfight. This fight pushes the CPU and GPU to the maximum: Massive amounts of hero models, hats, particles and spells flying around and dropping the framerate.
For DOTA 2, just one resolution. The game, as we already discussed in the past, is extremely susceptible towards CPU and memory changes when the game is in a CPU limited environment. The quick to render game was tested pretty much at medium (integrated graphics) quality settings. Hence the difference is measurable.
