Blizzard has released a new patch for Overwatch on its Public Test Server that adds support for NVIDIA’s Reflex tech. NVIDIA calls it the best integration of NVIDIA Reflex to date, as the game is experiencing up to a whopping 50% reduction in system latency.
Overwatch players with a GeForce GTX 900 Series GPU and newer can now try out NVIDIA Reflex before it comes to the main game. With NVIDIA Reflex, system latency is significantly reduced, making it easier to target enemies and improving PC responsiveness.
Overwatch also features the Latency Flash Indicator. If a system is equipped with a new Reflex Latency Analyzer compatible monitor and has GeForce Experience installed, simply enabling the flash indicator and positioning the monitoring rectangle over the indicator location will deliver accurate system latency results every time.
Lastly, NVIDIA released the following benchmark graph. This should give you an idea of the latency reduction that its Reflex tech brings to the table.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
