GeForce RTX Delivers 144+ FPS in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege

By Andrew Burnes on June 16, 2020 | Featured Stories FramesWinGames GeForce RTX GPUs

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six© Siege, from Ubisoft, is one of the world’s most popular competitive shooters, with an active player base numbering in the millions. Key to its popularity is its tactical 5v5 format, played out in over twenty destructible maps, with unique operators who each have their own special abilities and counters, making every match fresh, fun, and challenging.

To get a competitive edge in the high stakes shooter, where one headshot can make the difference between success and defeat, you need to maximize framerates. And with GeForce RTX GPUs, desktops and laptops you’ll have the power to play at up to 340 FPS in Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.

By gaming at fast framerates of 144 FPS or more, you gain several advantages in all titles with high FPS support, as revealed in a previous FramesWinGames article, and summarized below:


Higher FPS provides for smoother, easier target tracking and more wins!

  • Reduced Ghosting, For A Better Overall Experience: When playing on a high refresh rate monitor, high framerates help reduce ghosting trails on characters. This ensures you’re aiming at the character’s hitbox and not the ghost, and removes distracting artifacts from the screen, keeping your focus on enemies.

  • Lower System Latency, Letting You See Enemies Earlier: By increasing your framerate you decrease system latency, helping you see enemies a fraction sooner, giving you an extra moment to aim and fire, hopefully leading to a glorious victory. Lower system latency also makes your gameplay feel more responsive, which can improve aiming speed, reaction times, and more.

Playing at high FPS unlocks your full potential, which is why NVIDIA recommends running at least a GeForce RTX 2060 for competitive gameplay, to consistently deliver 144+ FPS. If you read this article, we go into the science of why these advantages exist and help you reach peak potential.
