Nvidia’s G-SYNC module hasn’t had a lot of love lately, but that all changes with new Reflex-enabled displays like the ASUS ROG SWIFT PG259QNR, which can tell you just how slow your game really is.

  • Have you guys ever heard of Standard Deviation? 👀 I hear it's a really great way to empirically measure how consistent data are. Maybe you should try recording all the latency measurements for a given test condition and then compare them to each other? If only there were some sort of statistical test to see if there is a difference between two test conditions greater than that of random chance... 🤔 Pedantry and sarcasm aside, y'all should really just do T-test. They're very quick and easy to do, much easier than standing there and trying to "eyeball" whether or not the numbers are more consistent with with Reflex Low Latency off. I know y'all run a tight production schedule but I'm certain Anthony would be content spending a half hour grabbing 10 data points for each test and throwing them on an excel spreadsheet. I realize that the point of this video is more to showcase the tool, not the results, but clearly they are significant enough to you for y'all to discuss them at length in the video. (I guess with a sample size that small you should probably do a z-test but the procedure is almost exactly the same. And if you only wanted to compare two test conditions on how consistent their latencies are you'd actually use an F-test to compare variances in that case but my point is do some basic statistical analysis it's very easy and important)

  • "next we need to figure out how to minimize brain lag". Lol you laugh now, but I actually had an Apple Certified "genius" argue with me about 120fps being useless because he said "your eyes only see in 30 fps", Im like, "dude I can tell a clear difference filming in 120 vs 30, its so much smoother, have u never seen a 144hz monitor?" and he said "yea but anything above 30 is just artificially added frames to make it look smoother, but your still actually only seeing 30 fps", I said "REALLY? and where is this artificial optimization being processed? IN MY BRAIN?" and thats an Apple Genius for you

  • On + Boost does the same thing as setting the GPU to high performance I think? it just makes sure the GPU stays clocked high when GPU usage is low so it pumps out frames faster

  • Linus, you're making assumptions in this test. Some games may use a virtual bullet along with the physics engine to simulate bullet drop and recoil. Along with this could be a more realistic bullet starting point at the back of the barrel, not showing a fiery blast until the bullet accelerates to the end of the barrel. You would need to know for a fact how each game simulates shots, though. Just my $0.02.

  • you cant just lower refresh rate and expect less input lag, you have to cap the framerate below monitor refresh rate at something that lowers gpu usage below 100%, this reduces the frame buffer between gpu and cpu and gives you better input lag. Which is basically what the reflex software in game does, but without lowering gpu below 100%. On + boost changes your power settings for your gpu to prefer performance so the card will clock as high as it can

  • Are you sure the monitor catches up the whole input latency from the "click of the mouse up to the muzzle flash appearing"? I don't know how that would be possible, since the monitor has no absolute information of when the key was initially pressed. I mean, no matter what the monitor does, there has to be an input latency between it and the mouse (or whatever), before it even shows you the so-called "precise" input lag. The monitors "input-scan" is not delay-less.
