Dota 2, Valve’s mega-popular MOBA, has remained one of Steam’s most played games since its official release back in 2013. With regular updates that ensure a constant evolution of gameplay, features and heroes, Dota 2 has taken on a life of its own, and every day over a million people play.

By playing on a GeForce graphics card, desktop or laptop, Dota 2 runs at extremely high frame rates, making gameplay fast and responsive. Today, Dota 2’s gameplay gets even more responsive with the addition of NVIDIA Reflex. With a single click, you’ll reduce system latency by up to 23% on GeForce RTX GPUs. Of course, Reflex also delivers latency reduction on GeForce RTX and GeForce GTX 900 Series and newer GPUs.

With lower system latency, your clicks translate to on-screen actions even faster, helping everything from last-hitting to aegis-snatching, benefiting players of all skill levels, potentially giving you a competitive edge against players with higher system latencies.

NVIDIA Reflex is enabled with a single click in Settings --> Video. When activated, NVIDIA Reflex reduced system latency in our pre-release testing by up to 23% on a GeForce RTX 3060 at 2560x1440.

If you’re gaming with high frame rates, and your system latency is now optimized by NVIDIA Reflex, your next step towards top tier competitiveness is upgrading your gaming monitor. NVIDIA G-SYNC esports displays are specifically designed for high frame rate gaming in competitive titles, improving image clarity and reducing motion blur, and eliminating tearing. If you’re a competitive gamer or esports pro, these are the very best monitors for upping your game.

This fall, G-SYNC esports displays get even better with the launch of new 27” 1440p, 360Hz models from ASUS. Our research found that 1440p 27” displays can improve aiming by up to 3% over traditional 1080p 24” displays, when aiming at small targets, of which there are many on-screen in Dota 2. For competitive gamers and esports professionals, 3% can mean the difference between victory and defeat.
