NVIDIA Reflex: Available At Launch In Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart & F1Ⓡ 23

By Andrew Burnes on June 13, 2023 | Featured Stories GeForce RTX GPUs NVIDIA Reflex

NVIDIA Reflex is a must-have in games, reducing system latency so your actions occur quicker, giving you a competitive edge in multiplayer matches, and making single-player titles more responsive and enjoyable. NVIDIA Reflex is now used by over 50 million players each month, is available in 9 of the top 10 competitive shooters, including the Counter-Strike 2 beta, and is activated by 90% of GeForce gamers in 70+ supported titles.


NVIDIA Reflex is synonymous with responsive gaming, and can now be found in the latest and greatest games, including Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, launching in July with out of the box support. 

For gamers playing at home, new seasons for Fortnite, Overwatch 2, and other Reflex-enabled games offer a perfect opportunity to jump back into the action. And for the most competitive players, new G-SYNC Ultra Low Motion Blur 2 (ULMB 2) gaming monitors deliver a significant upgrade. Having debuted the displays at COMPUTEX 2023, see what monitor experts thought of the next evolution in competitive gaming.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart Available July 26 With NVIDIA Reflex, DLSS 3 & Ray Tracing

The Ratchet & Clank franchise recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, and on July 26th PC gamers can experience the action and humor of the franchise for the first time with the PC release of the critically acclaimed Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. Help the beautifully-rendered duo take on an evil emperor from another reality as you jump between action-packed worlds and beyond in this spectacular action-adventure-platformer, developed by acclaimed studio Insomniac Games, and brought to PC by the one and only Nixxes Software.

Building upon their work on other Sony Interactive Entertainment PC conversions, Nixxes is loading Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart with every possible technology, giving PC gamers an incredible experience that leverages the full capabilities of their systems.


GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards and laptops can multiply performance using NVIDIA DLSS 3, while GeForce RTX 20 and 30 Series users can accelerate frame rates with NVIDIA DLSS 2. All GeForce RTX gamers can maximize image quality with NVIDIA DLAA, for the highest possible picture quality. And GeForce GTX 900 Series and newer gamers can make Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart gameplay even more responsive with NVIDIA Reflex.

Through a process detailed in full in our DLSS 3 article, DLSS 3 combines DLSS Super Resolution and DLSS Frame Generation to reconstruct 7/8ths of the displayed pixels, accelerating performance significantly.


In GPU-limited games, DLSS 2 Super Resolution technology can increase your frame rates by up to 2X. With DLSS 3, we can boost them by up to 4X (compared to brute-force rendering) in fully ray-traced worlds.

Certain games make extensive use of the CPU which can limit performance. DLSS 3 operates on the GPU, bypassing CPU bottlenecks and boosting frame rates.

DLSS 3 games are backwards compatible with DLSS 2 technology - developers simply integrate DLSS 3, and DLSS 2, also known as DLSS Super Resolution, is supported by default. Additionally, integrations of DLSS 3 also include NVIDIA Reflex, reducing system latency for all GeForce RTX users, making games more responsive.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart also features ray-traced reflections with a variety of quality levels to choose from, as well as newly added ray-traced shadows, for natural light in outdoor areas. Gamers with GeForce RTX GPUs can enjoy these at the highest frame rates thanks to their dedicated ray tracing cores that greatly accelerate ray tracing performance.

Additionally, there’s support for 21:9, 32:9 and 48:9 resolutions, and triple-monitor Surround gaming. There’s the usual assortment of options to ensure you can play the way that best suits your style, and when using a DualSense controller on a wired connection, you can feel in-game actions coming to life in your hands with haptic feedback and dynamic trigger effects.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart launches July 26th on PC - wishlist or pre-order now.

G-SYNC Ultra Low Motion Blur 2 Media Impressions

Since 2015, Ultra Low Motion Blur (ULMB) has delivered extra motion clarity for competitive gamers. At COMPUTEX 2023, we launched G-SYNC Ultra Low Motion Blur 2 (ULMB 2), featuring over 1000 Hz of effective motion clarity for the best motion blur reduction for competitive gamers. Compared to the original, ULMB 2 delivers full refresh rate backlight strobing, nearly 2x higher brightness, and has practically zero crosstalk.


Best of all, ULMB 2 is available now, for free, for capable monitors through a single-click firmware update.

Outlets specializing in high refresh rate gaming and competitive gaming have taken an in-depth look at ULMB 2. Here’s a sampling of their expert opinions:

  • “What NVIDIA has essentially done here is created a no compromise solution for people that were thirsting for DyAc+ but didn't want to give up 1440p or IPS colors or variable refresh rate ” - BadSeed Tech
  • “A Better Motion Blur Reduction System for Gaming Monitors” - BlurBusters
  • “ULMB 2 looks incredibly clean and at 1440p especially you can start to notice more of that detail benefit” - Optimum Tech
  • “The fact that through a series of updates and improvements, two existing displays can benefit from a simple firmware update and improve their performance, while complying with the new ULMB 2 scheme, is obviously great news.” - TFT Central

More To Come Soon

Even more new NVIDIA Reflex games, hardware, and ULMB 2 monitors are on their way, so stay tuned to GeForce.com to learn more when the news drops; check out the complete list of currently supported games and devices on our NVIDIA Reflex website.
