7 New Integrations!
Gamers and game developers around the world recognize that reducing system latency is key to a great gaming experience and that is why there has been such tremendous growth in NVIDIA Reflex’s low latency ecosystem over the past year. Reflex is supported in 8 of the top 10 competitive shooters including Apex Legends, Valorant and Fortnite. Over 20 million GeForce players compete with Reflex ON each month. And our Reflex Analyzer, which allows players to easily measure system latency, is supported by over 50 mice and displays.
Also, responsive games are more immersive, less frustrating, and enable players to be more precise with their inputs. For this reason, competitive shooters quickly adopted NVIDIA Reflex low latency gaming, but other genres also benefit from the same reduction in system latency and are adding Reflex, including platformers (F.I.S.T.), fighting games (God of War) and sims/racing games (iRacing).
At CES 2022 NVIDIA announced seven new integrations of NVIDIA Reflex, including:
God of War
iRacing, the world’s premier online racing simulator
Midnight Ghost Hunt
Rainbow Six Extraction
Ready or Not
