Alongside its GeForce RTX 30 Series, NVIDIA previously announced its NVIDIA Reflex technology, designed to produce low-latency gameplay for all those who use its GPU technology when gaming.
Since this announcement, further games have added support for NVIDIA's Reflex technology, including some of the most competitive first-person shooters on the market.
Here's everything you need to know about NVIDIA Reflex.
What is NVIDIA Reflex?
NVIDIA Reflex technology allows developers to use new features that will minimise the latency of their games, allowing for more responsive gameplay in the most competitive of video games that reply on split-second reactions.
This technology is not limited to NVIDIA's latest graphics cards, but will be supported by all cards from the GeForce GTX 900 Series onwards, although the best changes will be seen in the high-end cards like the RTX 3080, for example.
Aside from the developer tools, NVIDIA Reflex gives users the ability to customise and control latency via the NVIDIA Control Panel, even when games do not support NVIDIA Reflex. In the NVIDIA Control Panel's 'Manage 3D Settings' section, changing the Low Latency Mode to Ultra will help to reduce the rendering latency of your games, even when they are not supported.
If you're worried about your latency, NVIDIA will also give you the chance to measure your Latency via any compatible 360Hz G-SYNC displays, allowing you to measure their responsiveness in order to understand and adjust your PC for the best possible performance.

What games support NVIDIA Reflex?
NVIDIA Reflex is supported by a host of popular first-person shooter games, includin Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Call of Duty: Warzone, Fortnite, Valorant, Destiny 2 and Apex Legends. You can check out footage of Black Ops Cold War in action below.
NVIDIA has also added four new games to NVIDIA Reflex as of December 16, with CRSED, Enlisted, Mordhau and Warface now all supporting NVIDIA's low latency technology.
Thanks to NVIDIA Reflex, these games have seen reductions in system latency ranging from a 20% reduction in Enlisted to a 41% reduction in Mordhau.
It's likely support for Reflex will come to further FPS games in the future, so keep an eye on this page for more developments!
