An official slide titled “NVIDIA Reflex Comes to Counter-Strike 2” has been shared online, confirming that NVIDIA is, in fact, planning on releasing a new graphics card called the GeForce RTX 4070. According to the slide, NVIDIA Reflex grants a 2-millisecond advantage to Counter-Strike 2 players with the GeForce RTX 4070 when the feature is enabled, while other cards may see an even greater amount of latency reduction, as high as 35%. Some of the other graphics cards that were tested include the GeForce RTX 3060 and GeForce GTX 1060. NVIDIA is expected to launch the GeForce RTX 4070 on Thursday, April 13, for $599.
From The Verge:
Nvidia provided the above slide to highlight the latency improvements. It also includes Nvidia’s unannounced RTX 4070, which has leaked heavily recently. On a GTX 1060, latency should lower to 17ms, down from 26ms on a machine equipped with Intel’s Core i9-12900K and running at 1440p. On the same machine with an RTX 3060, the latency will drop from 16ms to 11ms, and on Nvidia’s unannounced RTX 4070, the latency drops down to 8ms from 10ms.
Counter-Strike: Global Offensive fans have been waiting for Nvidia Reflex support for years, relying on driver-level features to improve input latency instead. The addition to Counter-Strike 2 means 9 out of the top 10 competitive shooters now have Nvidia Reflex support, with PUBG lacking support. Apex Legends, Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0, Destiny 2, Escape from Tarkov, Fortnite, Overwatch 2, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, Valorant, and now, Counter-Strike 2 all support Nvidia Reflex.
