Blizzard bumped the body cap in Overwatch 2 to 600fps as a result of the RTX 4090 is so quick
Overwatch 2 will run at as much as 600fps and you’ll thank Nvidia for that. Working with Blizzard for Nvidia Reflex help in Overwatch 2, Nvidia says the sport developer elevated the max fps supported within the sport after it gave Nvidia’s next-gen RTX 40-series graphics playing cards a go.
Nvidia’s next-generation RTX 40-series will launch with the flagship RTX 4090 (opens in new tab) on October 12, and Overwatch 2 is about to launch simply forward of that on October 4.
They need to play fairly properly collectively on the day. Nvidia has confirmed that body charges of over 360fps can be achievable on an RTX 4090, which ought to suffice for all however essentially the most excessive gaming displays obtainable right now. It additionally confirmed that latency-busting expertise, Nvidia Reflex (opens in new tab), is coming to the favored hero shooter.
Nvidia Reflex is a expertise to assist cut back system latency via quite a few GPU and sport optimisations in supported video games. Overwatch was one of many first to help the expertise when it first launched in 2020, so it is sensible that we’ll see it make its manner onto the upcoming sequel.
However reportedly within the lead as much as the discharge of Overwatch 2, Nvidia has been sharing its RTX 40-series secrets and techniques with Blizzard to make sure prime efficiency, and the sport developer elevated the max fps potential within the sport because of this to a whopping 600fps.
“Seems, the 40-series GPUs are so quick that the group over at Blizzard have elevated the Overwatch 2 body cap to 600 frames per second,” Justin Walker, senior director of product administration at Nvidia, informed us right now.
Although Walker by no means mentioned what the body cap was prior, let’s assume it wasn’t 599fps.
Nvidia confirmed off a demo with the sport working at round 460fps and 6ms latency at 1440p with an RTX 4090 put in. You may be a bit extra CPU restricted as you head to 1080p, so your selection of chip might nicely play a serious position in whether or not you may actually crank that fps any increased than that or doubtlessly max out that 600 fps restrict.
From the beta expertise, it appears as if Overwatch 2 could have a bunch of graphics settings to tweak, together with AMD’s FidelityFX Tremendous Decision. Maybe that’ll additionally turn out to be useful in getting someplace near that 600fps body restrict, however I do not suspect it to be an awfully taxing sport on its lowest settings, both.
