This is a benchmark of Valve's Dota 2 game. The test profile assumes you have a Steam account, have Steam installed for the system, and that you have rights to Dota 2. This automates the process of executing the game and using a standardized time demo.
This test will attempt to install the necessary game using your Steam account. If the test appears hung you may need to manually exit the Steam client. Currently this test profile doesn't override any of the user/quality settings so be forewarned when comparing your results against other user systems.
To run this test with the Phoronix Test Suite, the basic command is: phoronix-test-suite benchmark dota2.
* Uploading of benchmark result data to OpenBenchmarking.org is always optional (opt-in) via the Phoronix Test Suite for users wishing to share their results publicly. ** Data based on those opting to upload their test results to OpenBenchmarking.org and users enabling the opt-in anonymous statistics reporting while running benchmarks from an Internet-connected platform. *** Test profile page view reporting began March 2021. Data current as of 25 November 2022.

OpenBenchmarking.org metrics for this test profile configuration based on 1,467 public results since 25 May 2016 with the latest data as of 13 September 2021.
Below is an overview of the generalized performance for components where there is sufficient statistically significant data based upon user-uploaded results. It is important to keep in mind particularly in the Linux/open-source space there can be vastly different OS configurations, with this overview intended to offer just general guidance as to the performance expectations.
Based on OpenBenchmarking.org data, the selected test / test configuration (Dota 2 - Resolution: 1920 x 1080 - Renderer: OpenGL) has an average run-time of 3 minutes. By default this test profile is set to run at least 3 times but may increase if the standard deviation exceeds pre-defined defaults or other calculations deem additional runs necessary for greater statistical accuracy of the result.
Based on public OpenBenchmarking.org results, the selected test / test configuration has an average standard deviation of 1.1%.
Tested CPU Architectures
This benchmark has been successfully tested on the below mentioned architectures. The CPU architectures listed is where successful OpenBenchmarking.org result uploads occurred, namely for helping to determine if a given test is compatible with various alternative CPU architectures.
