Nvidia is doing some really cool things with its Reflex technology. It was introduced last September. But in order to take advantage of this Reflex tech, you'll need certain hardware and software to work in harmony. One way to take advantage of the tech is using a supported gaming mouse.

Obviously not all gaming mouses are going to work Nvidia's Reflex tech and that's exactly why the company has listed a bunch of supported mouses. For now, the list is small, but it's only going to grow and we'll start seeing more and more offerings in the future.

Here's a list of supported mouses:

Acer Predator Cestus 330

Acer Predator Cestus 350

Alienware AW610M

AOpen Fire Legend GM310

ASUS ROG Chakram Core

Corsair Dark Core RGB Pro

Corsair Dark Core RGB Pro SE

Logitech G Pro X Superlight

MSI GM 41

Razer Deathadder V2

Steelseries Rival 3

As you can see, the list has a lot of really good gaming mouses. And as we mentioned earlier, the list is growing and we'll start seeing more offerings. Nvidia has already confirmed that the tech will be supported by "top esports peripherals from Asus, Logitech, Razer, and Steelseries."

Even the ones mentioned on the list don't all play nice with the tech. Asus ROG Chakram Core, Logitech G Pro X Superlight, and Steelseries Rival are the ones that have appropriate firmware and we'll have to wait for other manufacturers to release it for their hardware.

In addition to the mouses, you can also get Reflex supported gaming monitors. And to use the tech, you'll need a supported GPU as well. Everything from the GeForce 900-series (Maxwell) onwards has you covered, so that shouldn't be an issue.

Outside of the benchmarks though, the Reflex technology isn't going to majorly help you in any way, at least not in all video games. Yes, you'll get a better understanding of latency and even cut down some of that. But it can make a huge difference in older mainstream cards.

It's indeed a promising technology and we expect it to get better over time. Combine Nvidia's Reflex tech with a good gaming monitor and a gaming mouse, and you might land a few more clutch shots.
