Samuel Willetts >Updated Sep 30, 2022 at 09:01 ET >Gaming hardwareNvidiaThe RTX4000 GPU reveal impressed my for all the obvious reasons including the promised performance ceiling at RTX 4090. But, I was most excited about the Lovelace technologies DLSS 3.0, and Nvidia Reflex. This latter feature is one that I have grown to love and is something every GeForce owner should be proud of.

Nvidia Reflex is a platform created by team green. It aims to lower your system's latency, also known as input lag. Reflex optimizes the way your GPU and CPU work together to render frames. This improves your system's responsiveness without any noticeable disadvantages.

Nvidia DLSS frame generation is a key component of Nvidia Reflex. This technology promises to increase frame rates by up to ten times the previous versions. This is only true if you are lucky enough to upgrade to an RTX4080 or higher. However, its presence brings benefits to older GeForce cards, especially those at the lower end.

Developers will need to support Nvidia Reflex if Nvidia DLSS 3.0 is to be implemented. This will allow you to lower the input lag in more games regardless of whether your graphics card is top-of-the-line or you still have a GTX900 series pixel pusher.

This is a great benefit for esports gamers. However, I have found Nvidia Reflex to be a valuable tool in single-player games. As someone who is slowly losing their competitive skills and reactivity, I will take advantage of any advantage I can against my opponents (human or AI).

Nvidia Reflex enabled makes me feel more confident, no matter if I'm playing Call of Duty: Warzone, or navigating through God of War with a bunch of draugr. It is something I treasure as much as the speed of my gaming monitor's response. I have optimized my setup to eliminate any possible obstacles.

Yes, I am excited to see the RTX 4000 series perform, but I'm also pleasantly surprised by the possibility of Nvidia Reflex adoption via DLSS 3.0. We hope team green will have the courage to open source the SDK so that we can reap the benefits of the technology on Intel Arc graphics cards and AMD Radeon graphics card.
