Nvidia's latest Geforce Driver paves the way towards a lower latency Overwatch experience

Nvidia has just launched their Geforce 461.92 driver for Windows, and it is paving the way towards a lower latency Overwatch experience. Nvidia's Reflex technology is coming to Overwatch, and it has the potential to cut game latency in half, making the game more responsive on Geforce hardware. 

Nvidia Reflex is now available within Overwatch's Player Test Region, and soon the feature will be officially added to the game as part of a future update. This update will give Geforce users a competitive advantage over other players, assuming that they are using the latest Geforce drivers. 

With Reflex, Overwatch will feel more responsive, and this will allow players to react faster and play the game better. This driver is a must for competitive Overwatch players with Geforce graphics cards. 

Below are Nvidia's full release notes for their Geforce 461.92 WHQL driver.
