If you’re playing Valorant, you’re going to want an NVIDIA GPU
Earlier this month NVIDIA announced that there will be more improvements to come for Valorant gamers using an NVIDIA GPU. These improvements are part of the Reflex function, already supported by Valorant.
Reflex for Valorant’s update (called Boost Mode) includes some nifty upgrades that could make or break your matches very well. NVIDIA says these will be applied to Fortnite as well. The update, which should already be live for gamers, aims to reduce latency. And less latency that you have to manage during your gaming sessions can only help. After all, latency is the enemy of fast reaction times.
Successful gamers with an NVIDIA GPU should experience up to 15% latency reduction
While NVIDIA doesn’t promise anything like huge graphics improvements, lower latency is still important.
NVIDIA says gamers with Reflex enabled and Boost Mode enabled may see a reduction in latency of up to 15%. Fortnite players can see a reduction of up to 16%. It will not be a massive decrease. But that may be enough to give you the edge you need.
Which is reason enough to want an NVIDIA GPU if you aren’t already using one. Or, to upgrade if you’re still using an old card. That is, if you find that it is possible to locate and buy one. Stock shortages made it nearly impossible to purchase one of the NVIDIAs 30 Series GPU.
But if you’ve been lucky enough to grab one and play Valorant or Fortnite, expect to see these upgrades when you activate the Reflex feature.
Ghostrunner will soon receive NVIDIA Reflex
If you haven’t played Ghostrunner yet, you’re missing out. It’s a crazy race with all the fast paced fights and it will only get better with NVIDIA Reflex. You can see what it looks like in the video above.
And if you thought the game was great before, wait until it gets NVIDIA Reflex support. NVIDIA does not say exactly when the media will go live. But his announcement was made on April 6 and in that announcement he said the feature will go live in the near future.
Players should therefore be on the lookout. NVIDIA also recently launched Reflex for Overwatch. Blizzard’s popular competitive first-person shooter. NVIDIA claims that the inclusion of this feature support should help reduce system latency by up to 50%.
