Check out how to tweak the PC game's Graphics Settings to make your PC game look beautiful and play well on your MSI Gaming Notebooks.

Normally we suggest our gamers to choose the graphics setting combination which gives you average 45 FPS game performance in order to enjoy a total smooth game play experience in all different scenery, but in Dota 2 you can easily get a FPS which is higher than 45, so just adjust the graphics settings as you like and see the differences between all settings.

This time we've prepared one of the most popular classic game - Dota 2 for our gamers, hope you enjoy it!
Again, tweak your own customized Graphics Settings in Dota 2 and share with us your findings and favorite graphics settings in game.

NOTE 
  • The FPS result of DOTA 2 is collected by running matches with A.I. players.
  • Due to the different hardware configurations (such as different CPUs, RAMs, and etc.), the FPS result may be different on the same graphics.
  • The game is tested under three different video configurations -Low Medium and Ultra. Each settings is tested for three times. (Low: 1024x768 with Advanced video settings all turn off and Render Quality set to 40%. Medium: 1366x768 with Advanced video settings all turn on except VSync and Render Quality set to 70%. Ultra: 1920x1080 with Advanced video settings all turn on except VSync and Render Quality set to 100% .)
