Competitive multiplayer games are growing in popularity more than ever, and players need every edge they can get over their competition. To help with this, NVIDIA created NVIDIA Reflex, which is a suite of technologies that optimizes gaming experiences to reduce system latency in games. Now, the tech is coming to Overwatch, with players able to take it for a spin on the Public Test Region today. As NVIDIA explains, Reflex is “a revolutionary suite of GPU, G-SYNC display, and software technologies that measure and reduce system latency in competitive games.” To boil that down, Reflex simply reduces "motion to photo" system latency (your interactions versus the time it takes your screen...

A few weeks back, we showed you NVIDIA’s Reviewer Toolkit, which gives publications like ours the ability to quantify GPU performance, power, and system latency in finer detail than we could before. One of the main components of the Reviewer Toolkit is a small device, dubbed LDAT, or the Latency Display Analysis Tool. LDAT connects to a system via USB and features an integrated photoelectric luminance sensor, along with a direct connection to the left mouse button on a modified Logitech G203 gaming mouse. When connected to a system and mounted to the proper location on a monitor, LDAT can track the amount of time between a physical mouse click and a luminance change on-screen, like muzzle...

Given that competition is helping to drive prices down, we're of the opinion that there can never be too many players in the solid state drive business, and a week ago we learned that MSI was getting ready to join the SSD party. It was LSI SandForce that originally spilled the beans by plastering MSI's name on a webpage that lists all SandForce-driven SSDs that currently exist or, in this care, are coming soon, but at the time, details were few and far between. Not anymore. A website with a supposed "inside connection at MSI" posted what appear to be official specs for MSI's upcoming high-performance Reflex Series SSDs. If the information is accurate, MSI is planning to launch its Reflex line... Read more...
