2080 TI vs Dota 2



I just upgraded to a RTX 2080 TI from a GTX 980, and my FPS in dota got worse.

Now I get ~90-100 when i used to get 110-120.

What is wrong?



CPU: Intel i7-6700k

Motherboard: ASUS Z170-A

PSU: Corsair CX750M

Case: NZXT H440W

RAM: 4x G.Skill F4-2800C16D-8GRR

NVME: Samsung SSD 970 PRO 1TB

Do you have the two cards in together? If the 2080 is not in the top spot, it's not getting the full amount of bandwidth. You should remove the 980 and DDU its drivers and move the 2080 to the top slot.

Also possible the DOTA is still running on the 980 if both cards are installed.  If you have both installed then check in NVIDIA Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings Tab.  It's been a while since I've had more than one GPU in a PC so I'm going off of recollection.

The 2080 TI was already in the top slot.

And now i have physically removed the 980 and reinstalled the drivers with DDU.


The issue persist :(
