High FPS Gaming FTW

With the rise of battle royale games like PUBG, Fortnite and now Apex Legends from Titanfall developer Respawn Entertainment, high FPS gaming is more important than ever.


Playing these games at high FPS isn't an easy thing to do, and while it might be easier at 1080p when you get to 1440p and then 4K pumping 120-240FPS gets harder and harder. NVIDIA has the most powerful gaming GPUs on the planet right now, and has done for many years now but this latest report from NVIDIA is an interesting look into the relation between super-fast GeForce GTX and RTX graphics cards, and the kill/death ratio in popular battle royale games.

When it comes to the professional battle royale players and streamers, reports state that 99% of the "battle royale pros" are using 144Hz or above gaming monitors. These games include Fortnite, PUBG, and Apex Legends which have over 100 million playing right now combined.The report breaks it down into seeing 32% of these battle royale pro gamers using 240Hz monitors.

Hitting the high 144/165/240Hz refresh rates isn't just pure GPU core clocks and VRAM speeds, but also comes down to the perfect blend of herbs and spices to get the latency of delivering those 144/165/240 frames per second to your screen at the lowest latency possible. There is an incredibly huge difference between end-to-end latency between an integrated GPU, a previous-gen GeForce GTX 750 Ti and a new GeForce RTX 2080.

The numbers are pretty shocking in games like CS:GO where an Intel HD 630 has 118ms of latency, compared to the GTX 750 Ti with 43ms and the new RTX 2080 with 20ms. The same latency is seen in Overwatch, with 106ms on the Intel HD 630, 41ms on the GTX 750 Ti, and just 20ms on the RTX 2080. This is a huge reduction in latency, showing you that high refresh rate and professional gamers, esports pros, and Twitch streamers need the latest hardware to stay at the top of their game.

For pro gamers, latency is everything.
