The latest edition leverages newer graphics APIs for improved fidelity and responsiveness. NVIDIA is collaborating with Valve to ensure latency is at an absolute minimum with the addition of NVIDIA Reflex.


NVIDIA Reflex optimizes the render pipeline to reduce system side latency by up to 35%! This results in improved response times and minimizing peeker's advantage in online gameplay.
