In nearly all sports -- golf, racing, football, etc -- the right gear can help competitors achieve their full potential. The same is true for esports -- better GPUs, displays, peripherals, and good software can help you respond more quickly and precisely to opponents. Enter NVIDIA Reflex, a new, free upgrade, which reduces system latency, making gameplay more responsive, giving you a competitive edge.

Today, following the addition of Reflex to top esports and competitive games, Reflex will come to Rainbow Six Siege. Download and install our newest Game Ready Driver now, which is a required update for Reflex in Rainbow Six Siege, so you’re ready to roll the second it launches.


Rainbow Six Siege is one of the most popular esports around, though it’s not your typical shooter, favouring strategic and tactical gameplay over a ‘run-and-gun’ style. Reaction time is measured in milliseconds, and is critical to a player's success. Being a fraction of a second late on the trigger is the difference between your digital life and death, so reducing system latency can be a huge boon for Rainbow Six Siege players.

With NVIDIA Reflex, system latency is reduced by up to 30%, making shots fire faster, making it easier to target enemies, and in general improving your competitiveness. NVIDIA Reflex is available in the Vulkan version of the game, providing a free upgrade to a huge number of GeForce gamers, back to those running GeForce GTX 10 Series GPUs.

To enable NVIDIA Reflex, download and install our new GeForce Game Ready driver, grab the latest Rainbow Six Siege update, load the Vulkan version of the game, and simply head into the game’s Display Options, where you can switch it on with a few clicks. Press Apply, and get gaming.
