[FPS Benchmarks] Dota 2 on NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (95W) and RTX 3060 (140W) – RTX 3080 is 35% faster

Thankfully, Dota 2 is a free-to-play game so everyone can download it via Steam. This game is one of the most successful Valve games ever and the main reason for that is the gameplay formula.

The other advantage of Dota 2 is the fact that this game is really light and you can play it on a not-so-powerful machine with an iGPU like the AMD Radeon RX Vega 8 [R4000/5000, 15W] with around 140 FPS on Low settings. For this article, we’ll compare two powerful NVIDIA RTX Ampere GPUs – the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 (95W) and RTX 3060 (140W).
