Deathloop gets Nvidia reflex to improve latency

Nvidia Officially confirmed The PC version of Deathloop supports Reflex software technology.

Nvidia states that Reflex helps Deathloop’s single-player experience because software technology reduces system latency by up to 40%. Technicians do this by reducing the time it takes the computer to process the input.

Nvidia Reflex is a toolkit that measures and reduces system latency. Unlike other Nvidia technologies such as DLSS, Reflex does not require an RTX graphics card and supports older Nvidia cards from the GTX 900 series. Nvidia Reflex was released last year Over 20 games It currently supports software technologies such as Fortnite, Destiny 2, Splitgate, and the upcoming Battlefield 2042.

An interesting thing to note is that Nvidia Reflex is generally implemented in highly competitive games. Deathloop isn’t as competitive as the other games on the list, but it does include an intrusion mechanism. This PvP multiplayer feature allows players to choose whether another player in control of Juliana will invade the session or join another session in control of the character. However, Nvidia states that software technology also benefits players playing single-player mode because it can disable human-controlled intrusions.

Relfex support is now available, but Deathloop does not support Nvidia DLSS. The game supports Fidelity FX Super Resolution (FSR), but AMD’s super sampling technology was released last June.

Prior to the release of Deathloop last week, the game received critical acclaim, including IGN’s 10/10 review score. Still, the PC version has been criticized for stuttering issues. Players initially thought it had something to do with the Denuvo Anti-Piracy software, but later it became apparent from multiple sources. Including digital foundries, These stuttering issues are actually related to frame rate and mouse input controls.
