Nvidia’s Reflex technology is coming to Counter Strike 2. It’s the sequel to the popular multiplayer game Counter Strike: Global Offensive. Fans have been eagerly waiting for this addition. Reflex reduces latency in games. In addition, it lowers the delay between clicking the mouse and seeing the action on screen. This makes gameplay feel more responsive. This feature is particularly important in competitive games like Counter Strike. Where split second reactions can mean the difference between victory and defeat.
Nvidia’s Latency-Reducing Reflex Technology Comes to Counter Strike 2
Gizchina News of the week
Valve, the game‘s developer, has worked with Nvidia to integrate Reflex into Counter Strike 2. According to Nvidia, the technology can reduce system latency by up to 35%, making it easier for players to react quickly to in-game events. The feature will be available on GeForce GTX 900 series and newer graphics cards. With the most significant improvements expected on older GPUs.
To demonstrate the benefits of Reflex, Nvidia provided a slide showing the latency improvements that players can expect. So, a machine with an Intel Core i9 12900K and running at 1440p has a latency drop. With Reflex enabled, latency on a GTX 1060 graphics card goes down from 26ms to 17ms. On an RTX 3060, latency drops from 16ms to 11ms. And on the unannounced RTX 4070, the latency drops to just 8ms.
So, for years, Counter Strike: Global Offensive fans have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of Nvidia Reflex support. Until now, they had to rely on driver level features to reduce latency, which was not always effective. The addition of Reflex to Counter Strike 2 means that nine out of the top ten competitive shooters now support the technology. With only PUBG lacking support. Games like Apex Legends, Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, Destiny 2, Escape from Tarkov, Fortnite, Overwatch 2, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, and Valorant all have Nvidia Reflex support.
Nvidia Reflex in Counter Strike 2 is great news for players who want responsive gameplay. Its ability to reduce latency gives players a competitive edge. This could make the game even more fun to play.
