As a survival game, the low latency can prevent the target from escaping from the aiming or killing range at the moment of shooting and stabbing, which can improve the performance and increase the chance of winning the final “chicken”. “The game is a survival game. But Reflex, after all, has not been launched for a long time, there are few opportunities for real combat before, how effective it really is? We have to see the effect of the actual test.
The platform used in the test is Core i5-11600K + RTX 3060/GTX 1660 SUPER graphics card. Of course, there is also a very important hardware, is NVIDIA’s Latency Display Analysis Tool, in the previous tweet “Wireless can play games? The mouse also has something to say about its use and principle, so I won’t ramble on here.
In the “Image Quality” option of the game settings, drop down the options and you will see the Reflex option among the various effects available from NVIDIA, click Enable. In order to show the effect of reduced latency, you have to try to increase the frame rate, use the “Low” option in the “Picture Quality” setting below.
The test was conducted using 1080p and 2K resolutions, and the final results were a bit surprising. The GTX 1660 SUPER, which is relatively hard to run the game, gained more in both 1080P and 2K resolution, which means that the biggest improvement of Reflex is still in the graphics output of the card, and not the two platforms exactly the same mouse, monitor, CPU and other parts.
As for the actual game effect, for the GTX 1660 SUPER this class of graphics card, at least equivalent to the graphics card performance improved by a notch, but also far from doing that point that is issued, for RTX 3060 such easy to run the game graphics card is not very meaningful. In this way, Reflex and DLSS are a bit like, more suitable to make up for the lack of performance of the graphics card. As for improving the win rate and eating chicken, it only provides a better chance to grasp it, and you have to practice hard for the little ones to do so.
