NVIDIA Brings Reflex to More Monitors and Mice, HDR10+ support later in 2022

In addition to the new game titles with Reflex support that Nvidia announced during its CES press conference, the company has also announced an additional eight displays and six mice that are now supported. Four of the displays are part of Nvidia's new 1440p esports display scheme and comes from AOC, MSI, ASUS and Viewsonic, one being the Alienware QD-OLED display, with the remaining three being 4K miniLED displays from Acer, Asus and HP. The 1440p esports monitors are all capable of a refresh rate of at least 300 Hz, with the ASUS ROG Swift going as high as 360 Hz.

We've already covered the Alienware QD-OLED display in a separate news post, so we'll skip it here. The 4K miniLED displays consist of the Acer Predator X32, the ASUS ROG Swift PG32UQXE and the HP Omen 32u, all 32-inch displays, with the Acer and ASUS displays being capable of 160 Hz refresh rates. We can't find any details about the HP display beyond the limited information provided by Nvidia.
As for the mice, we're looking at some new and some old models, all detailed in the picture above. There isn't really much to say here, as they should function like any other Reflex compatible mouse, although the Alienware and the Logitech are both wireless mice, which seems somewhat odd, since the wireless connection would introduce some additional lag, no matter what the manufacturer's claim.

In related news, Nvidia also announced that flagship OLED TV's from LG, Philips and Xiaomi will auto detect Nvidia GPUs and apply the correct settings required for low latency gaming. Nvidia's GeForce RTX 30, 20 and GTX 16 series GPUs will also be getting support for HDR10+ gaming this year, although Nvidia didn't provide a specific date as to when this would happen.

Apparently, Logitech's Lightspeed really does have negligible input lag over a wired mouse. It's been measured, but perhaps NVIDIA reflex will help with actually getting good measurements for this.

Negligibel, sure, but it's not the same as none. I use one of their Lightspeed products and I can't say I can notice any lag, but then again, the last wireless mouse I noticed any kind of lag on was connected over Bluetooth.
It seems Nvidia uses the "Average latency provided by Reflex Analyzer database" to those mice when used in wireless mode.

Bluetooth is kinda crap for anything input device, I've used Keychron and Playstation 4 controller and they perform worst than even the cheapest wireless dongle.

Bluetooth wasn't designed for most of what it's being used for today. It's technically terrible for audio as well, but everyone still uses it.

Logitech lightspeed really is super low latency

I cant stress enough how damn lag free it is. they've done really well with that tech, while other brands or other tech (ugh, bluetooth) are laggy garbage for gaming

If only they would make a nice Xbox controller for PC that used the new wireless stuff.

Xbox controllers with the official Xbox adaptor already do that

They better work on updating the G-Sync Ultimate module so that it supports HDMI 2.1.

Yup with 2.4g, plus you can connect up to 8 controllers using this (not like you can use it anywhere).

The Xbox adapter for PC is rather crap. I ended up going back to Bluetooth. Anything in the line-of-sight will cause connection problems for the new adapter. The old adapter they used to use in the X360 days for Windows PC was much, much, much better.

I've never had issues with my adapter, and it's always behind a monitor somewhere. Controller never has issues.

I use the adapter that came with the controller in my Oculus Rift box, which is just the normal controller/adapter bundle that you could buy back then, circa 2016.

You must have had a faulty one, or a counterfeit (or a really old one, like Xbox 360 era?)

BT wont go outside one room here, while the official adaptor works literally anywhere in the house. I stream to the TV in the lounge and just walk out there, the controller works ~3 rooms away perfectly

Ye would be cool. I like my razer controller but she no wireless and Logitech hasn't made an updated pad in forever.
