Latency has been the biggest enemy of the gamers and has been causing a lot of problems to them. But now Nvidia Reflex has taken the problem into their own hands to solve the problem by adding support for competitive based shooter Overwatch. When it will be activated, it would reduce the latency in the game by around 50%. It will be functional if you have both Nvidia GPU and Nvidia Reflex-compatible monitor and if want to reduce the lag. Though it is not necessary to have new GPU’s as older ones will also benefit and won’t cause any such problem to you. Overwatch will support Nvidia Reflex for cards as old as GTX 900 series.
The results are significant, with the most important results coming from the GTX 1660 super which has provided a huge relief to the gamers as the latency was reduced from 63 ms to 31 ms with the Nvidia Reflex being switched on. This has been a major boost the to the gamers and seeing the setup they are much more excited about it. Though the real reviews will come after it will be used by the gamers but till now they can have a sigh of relief as they can now reduce the lag.
