How to Turn On Nvidia Reflex Latency Mode in Valorant
You can enable Nvidia Reflex Latency Mode in Valorant to boost its responsiveness. From my experience, this can even fix lag in Valorant or help with errors such as VAN 1 alone, so you might want to turn it on.
Before opening Valorant, you should always check for the latest drivers for your graphics card. Update your drivers first before turning on Nvidia Reflex!
- Open the Nvidia Control Panel and go to Manage 3D Settings
- Find Low Latency Mode and change the mode to Ultra
- Open Valorant
- Go to the game's Settings menu
- Go to the Video tab on the settings
- Turn on Nvidia Reflex Low Latency
What is Nvidia Reflex Setting for Valorant?
Nvidia Reflex, developed by Nvidia, serves as a low latency tool that is claimed to reduce rendering lag by up to 80%.
In my experience, if you play fast-paced games like Valorant, Call of Duty, or other first-person shooters, you'll find this tool incredibly beneficial. These games demand a highly responsive system, and Nvidia Reflex aims to meet that requirement.
To give you the best performance, Nvidia Reflex optimizes both the GPU and the game, integrating both of their settings. However, this does not mean that it gives you the best graphics resolution. Reflex attempts to lower system latency to the point where it is almost undetectable, while Nvidia has solutions to help you get the increased Valorant FPS, or help you when Valorant keeps freezing.
What are The Requirements of Nvidia Reflex?
You need a GeForce GPU to run Nvidia Reflex, which is a proprietary technology. However, you don't need the most expensive or finest graphics card to take advantage of it.
Nvidia Reflex is supposed to improve latency on the GTX 900 series onwards. Of course, higher-end graphics cards would expect a better performance.
Sadly, AMD GPUs are incompatible with Nvidia Reflex. But AMD users do have other options. The performance of your display might be enhanced by turning on FreeSync in the monitor settings.
Although not all games enable Nvidia Reflex, there are still steps you can take to decrease latency, even if your current game does not work with Nvidia Reflex.
