NVIDIA Explains Why High FPS Matter for Competitive Gaming

NVIDIA presents the second detailed study  in our ongoing efforts to understand how graphics performance affects competitive gaming and esports in a new study titled “Why Does High FPS Matter for Competitive Gaming?”

In the first study, titled “Unlock Your Full Potential – How Higher Frame Rates Can Give You An Edge In Battle Royale Games” NVIDIA product manager Gerardo Delgado outlined how having the right hardware, a fast GPU and a high refresh rate G-SYNC monitor can help you reach your full potential on the battlefield by enabling faster reaction times.

When playing competitive games like FortniteCS:GO, or PUBG, players often measure their skills based on their Kill/Death ratio (K/D ratio). A higher K/D ratio means that the player wins their battles a higher percentage of the time – securing the victory.

Digging deeper into discoveries from the first study, NVIDIA vice president of technical marketing Tony Tamasi shows a correlation between high FPS and better K/D Ratios. He discusses in detail why frame per second (FPS) well above 60 has clear benefits for playing your best, including:

  1. Smoother animations to help you track targets easier

  2. smaller ghosts and tears to help reduce distracting effects

  3. lower system latency to help you see targets earlier

With the high FPS achieved with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPU and high refresh rate of a 240 Hz monitor, readers can see how these benefits provide an edge in competitive games!
