Intel’s Alder Lake performs worse than expected in DOTA 2 benchmark test

Intel’s next most anticipated launch after its Rocket Lake is the upcoming Alder Lake. The processors are advertised by Intel as offering much higher performance than its competitors and are even expected to crush Apple’s M-series in multi-core performance.

However, there is no proof to support those claims, and the only one saying that with utmost confidence is intel itself. There is little to know information is provided by the UserBenchmark, as the software may have had trouble correctly differentiating between Alder Lake’s performance and efficiency cores.

We recently heard in the rumour that a mystery Alder Lake processor managed to clock at 2.2GHz; the news was paired up with some beefy hardware, such as 32GB of DDR5-4,800 RAM and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080.


However, even after having such excellent hardware support, it was revealed that DOTA2 couldn’t go past 189 FPS most of the time. While the maximum framerate did touch 549 FPS at some point, that could have happened while navigating the game’s menus. At its lowest, the game ran at 47 FPS, which is disappointing.

The worst part is that DOTA2 isn’t the most demanding game around, with its Steam page stating that it can run on any dual-core CPU with 4GB of RAM and a GeForce 860 or AMD Radeon HD 2600.

However, the same game when ran using a system comprising of AMD Ryzen 5 3600X at 4.2GHz, 16GB DDR4 RAM at 3,000MHz, and an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2070 Super along with all settings maxed out at 1440p. The game ran at 142 FPS on average, and the number dipped to 125 FPS at times, but no lower.

However, the performance of Alder Lake is not yet final as there are no specific BIOS or drivers for the CPU. But, the CPU has outright degraded performance for a medium-end game that spells doom for intel.
