    Hey I have a 2011 13 in macbook pro, with duo core 2.4 ghz processer and intel hd graphics. Do you think I could run this game with at least 30 fps with setting on medium with shadows off and maybe even get 60 on the same settings once they fix the fps problem? Or should I shell out the money for an alienware...

    Definately playable...although you may not have the greatest luck on an Air.

    So far the client is working fairly well. It plays nearly flawless against bots, but in a live game the frame rate is still noticeably slower than Windows. That being said, it is still very playable. A few difference between a bot game and a live game is also that hotkeys don't seem to function correctly in a live game, and sound is messed up in live games as well. Like I said, bot games seem to work flawlessly.

    As for a Macbook Air...I don't think the hardware on an Air is going to support the demands of Dota2. Make sure you look into the hardware requirements before making your purchase.

    Hi all, i see these messages are just 2 days before the release of the new Dota2 release (for linux and macos), I'm a right? How is the performance since then? I'm thinking of getting a Macbook air, and it would be nice to be able to play some Dota on it.

I was getting about 10-12 FPS even on the lowest settings and if I use that "quit-reconnect" method, I get about 80 FPS with everything ON or HIGH, except V-sync and AA, which I will test the next time I play the game.


    Good luck to those of you suffering from this issue and hope this helps some of you out!

    Oh sorry forgot to mention I'm running at 1440x900.

    I just tested it with v-sync and AA both on. Got steady 60 FPS after the "quit-reconnect" method. So it's all maxed out except resolution at 1440x900.

    Installed the main client. Same problems as the Test Client.

    15-35fps in OSX

    55-75fps in Windows

    Same machine, same settings, same resolution.

    Early 2011MBP, 6750 1GB, 16GB ram. Surely this can be better.

    I have the same specs as the OP, and am getting the same awful framerates and no sound. I don't have a windows install to compare at the moment, but I'm fairly sure I should be getting more than 3-10 FPS with the lowest settings.

    Those of you with horrible frame rates make sure that your Steam Community is disabled in your Steam preference. Any notification from Steam will tank my FPS, but if I keep it turned off it will run a lot better.

    Before launching DOTA2 go to the menubar
    Steam -> Preferences > In Game > Enable Steam Community In-Game should be UNCHECKED.

    I still get more FPS swings than on Windows, but on my machine it's definitely playable.
    Hopefully, they fix this an some other bugs soon. The OpenGL shouldn't have been released yet IMO. There are still significant bugs with this version.

    Shiny new 2012 Retina MacBook Pro, getting 10-20 fps with drops during teamfights and spells. Completely unplayable, and no audio to boot.

    Same issues,

    funny that the only sound device available is "Windows default device" - we're on os X here but somehow magically, sound just started working a minute into my first test game.

    Getting ~10-20 fps here, it is unplayable, not fixed by lowering settings.
    Mind you I am using the same machine, dual booting OS X and Windows.

    i5 2500k
    GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1gb
    Lion 10.8
    2560x1440 @ 96hz

    FPS in windows is usually at 96, almost never below 70

    If you turn off the overlay fps will boost. That's quite strange.
