'Dota 2' Performance Should Be Better?

Discussion created by sunnybubblegum on Jun 9, 2014

Hi, In the Steam game 'Dota 2', I am getting 25 to 50 frames per second, averaging at about 35. This is after reducing the game's graphical settings, which are listed below (it was a lot worse on the recommended full settings -- maybe 15 fps). I'm still able to play the game, and it's enjoyable, but shouldn't a card that's only three years old run at a solid 60 frames per second?


In any case, I'm grateful for all of the progress the AMD Linux team is making with drivers. Thank you.
