Not true if you're playing it 1080p The CPU will bottleneck the graphics card at that point at 100% usage. If you do a super resolution it'll eliminate that though 1440p or 4K. Example of 3770K paired with a RX 580 8 GB bottleneck horribly in battlefield 5 at 1080p. Turn the sample resolution to 150% takes care of it
You are simply moving the bottleneck from the CPU to the GPU.

Example 45 fps avrg at 100 resolution 75 at 150 resolution. Feel free to do some research.

I wouldn't advise to do this with a weak card this is just an example of a 3770K and RX 580.


look up benchmarks of a GTX 1080 TI paired with a dual-core CPU at 4K. it's pretty damn well because the higher resolutions all GPU bound.

What is your top of the line CPU from 10 years ago? I'm running dual Xeon x5680 on my workstation with a evga gtx 970 oc.... I'm getting around 80fps in dota2... will this card be much better?
I was using an first generation i7 (920 Bloomfield) and with a Radeon R7 370 I was pushing around 120 fps.

I'm on a Ryzen 5 2600 right now with a GTX 980Ti and I get 170~180 fps.

(Max settings)

Even though the graphics, even on max, aren't very intense from what I understand Dota 2 is more processor intense than you would imagine because of all the individual things than the CPU has to keep track of. Therefore you're likely to get worse fps than shooters even if the graphics are more modest. Higher core clocks matter in terms of keeping your GPU un-bottlenecked; it means your machine is able to keep pace with the game at a rate where the requests for GPU renders approach the practical limit.

A little disappointing too because I went with 1080p/24"/240hz since optimizing smoothness mattered the most to me.

I got a i5 - 6400 CPU@ 2.7GHz and 16GB DDR3 sticks with an at least 4 years old video card, if I want to upgrade the graphic performance for gaming on today's new games (just to run in normal setting), is it worth to get this card or just to get a new pc?

You really need to be more specific about what model of video card you are running to get the answer.

Got this exact same card and I don't know which other cards you're used to have, but this noise level is reasonable.

And yes best no rebate price. I got mine sadly 1 year ago at $250. Man... Could've waited
Think of the good times you've had over the past year though.

I'm still running an HD 7950 and an i5 3570k. Would swapping to a 570 8GB or 580 be worth while? Or should I keep saving to build a new pc?

asus 570 8gb is NOT $139, its actually $179w/shoprunner. false advertising.

the 580 asrock would be a good deal excect only one hdmi sucks and these are non-refundable at newegg which means its end of life dead stock which means it should be closer to 129$. also, asrock doesnt say this is 3yr warranty on their website so it may be only 1yr.
purchase with prejudice and caution

It was 139 when posted and has since expired. It is currently being updated to reflect that.

Save for a better card. It's not a big enough jump from the 7950 imo

What will be a good example of maxing out 8GB on a 570?
When you run a multi monitors setup.
