NVIDIA Reflex is a game-changer, reducing system latency on GeForce graphics cards, desktops and laptops so your actions occur quicker, giving you a competitive edge in multiplayer matches, and making single-player titles more responsive and enjoyable.

Since its debut in September 2020, NVIDIA Reflex has reduced system latency in over 100 games, and over 90% of GeForce gamers have enabled Reflex. 9 of the top 10 competitive shooters feature Reflex support, including Apex Legends, Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® III, Call of Duty®: Warzone™, Counter-Strike 2, Escape From Tarkov: Arena, Fortnite and Overwatch 2, along with critically acclaimed smash hit games such as Cyberpunk 2077, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Diablo IV, Dragon’s Dogma 2, Remnant 2, God of War, Hi-Fi RUSH, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Red Dead Redemption 2, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, and Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered.

In 2023 alone, GeForce gamers played over 10 billion hours of their favorite titles with increased responsiveness thanks to Reflex’s innovative system latency reducing technology.

Today, XDefiant launches. This new, anticipated multiplayer shooter from Ubisoft boasts Reflex support from day-one, reducing system latency significantly, further improving your gameplay experience.

Additionally, we’ve tested Counter-Strike 2 and Overwatch 2’s newest updates, so you can see how GeForce RTX 40 Series GPUs perform in the shooters everyone’s still playing.

XDefiant launches later today. Enable NVIDIA Reflex once you load in to reduce system latency by up to 58% on GeForce RTX 40 Series GPUs. In our testing, PC latency was as low as 8 milliseconds, and performance over 382 frames per second on the GeForce RTX 4090, enabling faster target acquisition, quicker reaction times, and the best aim precision. And with a GeForce RTX 4060 Ti, you’ll still surpass 170 frames per second, with just 12 milliseconds of latency.

Counter-Strike 2 & Overwatch 2’s Latest Updates Tested

As developers update and enhance their constantly evolving multiplayer games, performance can change over time. So, we checked in with the latest updates for Counter-Strike 2 and Overwatch 2 to show you how they perform on GeForce RTX 40 Series desktop graphics cards.

In Counter-Strike 2, GeForce RTX 40 Series gamers can play at up to 478 frames per second at max settings in a competitive game, maxing out the capabilities of the fastest G-SYNC gaming monitors, for the best possible gameplay with the lowest levels of PC latency. By activating NVIDIA Reflex, latency is further reduced by up to 33%, allowing the fastest configs to play Valve’s high intensity shooter with as little as 6 milliseconds of PC latency.

Overwatch 2 performance goes one step further, hitting nearly 600 FPS on the GeForce RTX 4090! Together with Reflex, which reduces latency by up to 61%, system latency is as low as 5 milliseconds, for the most responsive team versus team gameplay possible.

If you’re a competitive player who wants to remove all impediments to your performance, a GeForce RTX 40 Series PC and a G-SYNC monitor should be your next upgrade. Frame rates are now so high they can max out the fastest G-SYNC displays, delivering unparalleled motion clarity, minimal system latency, and maximum peeker’s advantage, giving you a slight edge on laggier competitors.
