What you need to know

  • HyperX's Pulsefire Haste gaming mouse is officially compatible with NVIDIA Reflex tech.
  • NVIDIA Reflex is designed to combat in-game latency in titles such as Rainbow Six Siege.
  • HyperX's mouse will now allow for accurate measurement of latency in conjunction with NVIDIA Reflex.

HyperX has a big announcement targeted squarely at "elite gamers," in the event you connect with such a title. The news is that its Pulsefire Haste gaming mouse is now compatible with NVIDIA Reflex tech, meaning when you combine the two technologies, you'll have the ability to measure latency as well as combat it in all your favorite games, including the ever-popular Rainbow Six Siege.

Here's a relevant snippet from HyperX's press release to give you a better idea of the benefit this mouse's new capability brings to the table: "The NVIDIA Reflex Analyzer is a system latency measure tool in new NVIDIA G-SYNC Reflex displays. The tool detects clicks coming from the mouse and then measures the time it takes for the resulting pixel to change on screen. Now with Reflex, gamers can start a match with confidence, knowing their systems is operating exactly as it should be."

So there you have it. If you happen to have NVIDIA tech lying around like G-SYNC-imbued monitors and the best graphics cards made by Team Green, and you want to invest in a $50 mouse to kick your online gaming experiences up a notch (when it comes to analyzing and combatting latency), now's your chance.
