  • Dota 2 crashes with rtx 3080 (driver version 466.11)

    Hi all,

    Was wondering if anyone is getting Dota 2 crashes to desktop mid game.

    I have recently upgraded my PC and using a rtx 3080 (Ver 466.11 drivers - latest currently).

    I have tried validating my game files, reinstalling it and it still happens. Did not had any problem in my old pc with the gtx 1080 card.

    Hoping for anyone to help on this. Thanks!

      Same here guys, I am on RTX 3060 with 471.11 driver. The workaround for me is to set Dota2 with the lowest possible video setting, "Use Basic Settings". Let me know if you guys have already found the fix, I have been troubleshooting it for the past week.

        Found the fix finally!!! I had to use MSI Afterburner to bring down my Core Clock and Memory Clock by around -100 and Dota2 stop crashing. A good way to trigger the crash is by playing Faceless Void in Demo Hero then click on Free Spells and Level to Max, keep casting Chronosphere until it crashes. It should crash after 5 or 6 Chronosphere, of course the video settings should be set to Best Looking.

        BTW credits to user ATlorNVIDIA in the Nvidia forum.

        Edit 04/07/2021: Encountered the crash again and had to decrease the GPU Core Clock and Memory Clock to -300. Coincidentally there was a Dota 2 update earlier hence could be due to that but no way for me to be sure on that. Will continue to monitor and update here, hopefully this helps anyone with the same issue.
