Nvidia has published a promotional article claiming that players of Battle Royale games that use fast graphics cards and high refresh rate monitors tend to achieve significantly better results than players with older, slower graphics cards and 60 Hz displays.
Battle royale games take all the qualities driving the growth of PC gaming and hypercharge them: the competitive aspect of esports; low price points with optional in-game purchases; and the popularity of streaming sites, such as Twitch and YouTube, that expose larger audiences to gaming. Apex Legends, benefiting from all these factors, reached 50 million players in a single month.
Nvidia says that its latest GPUs improve reaction time — they lower latency, the time it takes for an image to be displayed on a screen; and improve your aim — the action looks smoother. And together with NVIDIA G-SYNC monitors, they remove distracting effects, such as tearing and stuttering.
According to Nvidia's article, the latency of a system with one of the NVIDIA GeForce RTX graphics cards is halved compared to a GeForce GTX 750 Ti, and nearly 6x less than a system without one.
In other words, if you play Battle Royales and want to perform at your best, Nvidia says you should optimize your system for 144+ FPS and pair it with a 144 Hz monitor. And for ultimate performance, 240 Hz monitors provide an additional boost, though you’ll need a graphics card powerful enough to consistently run at 240 FPS to get the full benefit from it.
