NVIDIA Reflex launches today with Overwatch 2, reducing system latency by up to 60%, providing faster target acquisition, quicker reaction times, and the best aim precision. It only takes a single click to enable in Overwatch 2 in the OPTIONS --> VIDEO menu.  

And because our new GeForce RTX 40 Series graphics cards and Reflex are #BeyondFast, Blizzard increased Overwatch 2’s frame rate cap to 600 FPS, from the 400 FPS of Overwatch, ensuring competitive gamers and esports pros can get the ultimate experience when using our new, beyond fast GPUs. System latency on a GeForce RTX 40 Series GPU is as low as 8 milliseconds, and frame rates 500+ FPS at 1440p.

Using a NVIDIA Reflex gaming monitor and mouse, you can measure your own system’s latency quickly and easily via GeForce Experience


“Overwatch 2 absolutely shines on the highest ‘Epic’ setting with a GeForce RTX 4080, and even in a climactic team fight, the game has never been smoother or more responsive” -John Lafleur, Technical Director, Overwatch

With your frame rates boosted to the stratosphere, and your system latency virtually undetectable, 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 will 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, such as an enemy’s head. For competitive gamers and esports professionals, 3% can mean the difference between victory and defeat.

If you want to step up to competitive play, NVIDIA recommends the following GPUs for Overwatch 2:

1080p 144+ FPS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060
1080p 360+ FPS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti
1440p 360+ FPS NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 (16GB)

However you enter battle, we recommend updating your GeForce PC or laptop with our new Overwatch 2 Game Ready Driver, ensuring you receive the optimal experience the first time you play Overwatch 2 for free.
