I have heard that there have been others who experience the same problems you describe. These are the settings in my setup of CCC which work best whether or not I have the discrete card in or out just using my 7660D graphics. I have never played Dota2 but compare your overall settings to mine.

Now my CCC settings are:

-- Anti-Aliasing --

Anti-Aliasing Mode & Samples are Use app settings

Filter is Std

Anti-Aliasing Method is Multisampling

Morp Filter is Off

-- Texture Filtering --

Anisotropic Filtering Mode & Level are Use app settings

Texture Filter Quality is Std

Surface Format Opt is Off

-- Frame Rate Control --

Wait for Vertical Refresh is Off, unless app specifies

-- Tessellation --

Tess Mode is Use app settings

Max Tess Lev is Use app settings

Ty for the reply I did all the setting but the problem still persists. It`s true that the fps drops now are at 1 sec apart but still unplayable, it makes me very dizzi.

The only game that I played alot with just my APU was NFS World. It used to hang up and drop FPS to, but I still does it with my discrete card as well. 

Do you have this issue with any other game that you play?

It is present in other games as well, but the fps max limit is higher and the fps drops are more close to the max limit therefore it is not observable anymore. But in dota the fps max limit is low and the fps drops are very observant....

So I googled "slowing fps dota 2" because I know nothing about this game.

Here are a few hits which sounded like this is a problem for other users. They have shared what worked for them. They talk about option which don't make sense to me, but since you play it maybe it will work for you.

If there are any cursing used and it offends you sorry but it gamers can be rude.

Hope this helps you out.
