Counter-Strike 2 to feature Nvidia Reflex for lower latency

Valve’s upcoming sequel to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Counter-Strike 2, is set to utilise Nvidia Reflex technology to improve gameplay by reducing latency. Reflex technology is an end-to-end software development kit (SDK) that speeds up the time it takes for a player’s input from the mouse and keyboard to appear as gaming effects on the screen. This results in a more responsive gaming experience for players, which is particularly important in professional shooters like Counter-Strike.

Nvidia has claimed that Nvidia Reflex will have the most significant impact on older GPUs and will be enabled in Counter-Strike 2 for GeForce GTX 900 series and above graphics cards. In Counter-Strike 2, Reflex can minimise system latency by up to 35%, which can make a significant difference in gameplay, potentially enabling players to hit their shots before their opponents.

NVIDIA Reflex technology arms developers with new features to minimize latency in their games. We’re seeing excellent responsiveness and player control with Fortnite running on the GeForce RTX 30 Series.

With Nvidia Reflex support, Counter-Strike 2 will join other top competitive shooters. Like Apex Legends, Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, Destiny 2, Fortnite, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, and Valorant, all of which already utilise the technology.

Valorant was designed from the beginning to be a precise, competitive FPS, and that means doing everything we can to ensure crisp, responsive gameplay. With GeForce RTX 30 Series and NVIDIA Reflex technology, we’re able to serve players around the world with the lowest render latency possible.

In conclusion, Nvidia Reflex Technology is a crucial development for gamers and esports professionals, improving gameplay and making it more responsive. Its implementation in Counter-Strike 2 is expected to significantly enhance the player experience. Its enabling players to enjoy the game more and potentially perform better.
