Benchmarks (iGPU): Dota 2 (1920x1080)

We run Dota 2 at a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels. We use two settings: low and medium.

As with the previous benchmarks with the iGPU, the 8700K leads the pack. Note that the other Coffee Lakes are not as convincing compared with their predecessors here. It seems that Dota 2 primarily profits from a high clockspeed of the iGPU and not so much from faster RAM.
