Nvidia is rolling out Reflex Latency Reduction technology for anyone who has an Nvidia graphics card and plays the PC version of it. OverwatchThe company tested the qualifications in Overwatch ‘s PTR servers back in March, but Reflex is now live and theoretically available for competitive play, Nvidia claims that Reflex reduces the time it takes to pull the trigger in. Overwatch And the game shows up to 50 percent of the image on the screen, and now you can easily test it.
Latency can be caused by a number of things. (Internet speed can be a key competitive factor), but Reflex is focused on reducing latency caused by computer hardware. The longer the lag between the game̵7;s clicks and responses, the more likely the player responds to be dropped. In this case, Nvidia technology is not new and Overwatch It’s just the latest eSports title to be added to the small collection of 15 Reflex-supported games so far.
I can’t tell how well this feature will work without trying it out. But if Nvidia’s video demos are to be believed, only professional players can feel the microsecond difference in latency, Nvidia suggests that in some cases that slight difference could drastically change the outcome. According to Nvidia’s demonstrations, enabling Reflex could be the difference between a critical attack and a complete disappearance.
Your mileage may vary. But if you have an Nvidia graphics card – Reflex works with older GTX 900-series cards – and a G-Sync monitor, you should be able to try the low latency feature. Enabling Reflex requires the newest Nvidia drivers and an updated copy of the game you want to use in it. OverwatchIf you have an updated game, a compatible graphics card, and new drivers, you can enable Reflex in the video settings.The company has also partnered on building a dedicated monitor with Reflex Latency Analyzer feature.
