Nvidia Unveils Latest 461.92 Drivers Bringing Reflex to Overwatch
Mike Sanders / 7 months ago
Nvidia has today announced the release of its latest graphics card drivers (461.92 WHQL). As a key part of the launch highlights, Team Green has confirmed that ‘Reflex’ support has now officially been added to the Overwatch Test region servers with full-blown support expected to be added to the game in the very near future. For those of you unaware of what this is, the overall ethos is that this new technology will help significantly reduce system latency, meaning your in-game reactions should be the sharpest they’ve ever been!
It doesn’t, however, end there though as the latest driver (as you might expect) also brings with it a number of moderate fixes and optimizations.
