A winner in every category, the ASUS TUF GAMING RTX 3080 OC is a demonstration of what good cooling can do.

Note: JUNE 2020 – DOTA2 has recently implemented a transition from DirectX9 to DirectX11 and new install of the game will prompt users to switch from DX9 to DX11. With that said, we are testing DOTA2 in DX11 from now on.

In contention for the most popular game on Steam and the biggest competition in eSports: DOTA 2 is powered by the Source 2 engine. The game is fairly light on low to medium settings but maxed out, with heavy action on screen especially during clashes, can really stress most systems. This is a game where frame times matter as responsiveness is very important in high-stakes competition. We’re looking at consistently low frametimes in this  game for the best experience

Our test uses actual game replay, using the segment from game 5 of the Kiev Major 2017 Grand Finals between OG and VP. The clash during the 54:05 to 55:05 of the game is a nice example of how much a system will get punished during intense team fights in DOTA2.

You can watch the replay of the actual game used in the benchmark here in Youtube or download the replay file here for your DOTA2 client: Game 3149572447. (save it to your DOTA2 replays folder)

    These Witcher 3 results are strange. Do you have any idea why the ASUS TUF is doing so well? The average and minimum frame rates are so much higher than the Zotac and FE?? Did the other cards thermal throttle or something?

      The ASUS TUF GAMING RTX 3080 OC is effectively running at 2Ghz during these tests giving it a bit of an edge versus the 1850Mhz or lower that we see from the FE and Trinity.

      Actually, a rep from ZOTAC stated that the Trinity is by design, slower than other cards and that’s actually mind boggling an employee will say that. It’s on Reddit just don’t have the link right now.
