Players With 144 FPS Have A Better Chance At Winning Than Those With 60 FPS, And Here’s Why.

NVIDIA not too long ago released an Article titled “How higher Frame Rates Can Give You An Edge In Gaming In Battle Royale Games” which gives you information about FPS and Latency. Lots of people are looking to improve but reaction time plays a big role in that, that’s where Latency comes in. Latency for those who don’t know is basically the time it takes for a keyboard or mouse press to register into the computer and render on the screen.

Those who play on a 60 FPS monitor will experience a decrease in skill potential due to Delayed Reaction Time and a Choppier Image. For those who are playing on a 60 FPS monitor or just not a decent build on the computer, this is an issue you have to deal with until you upgrade. Although you may have god-like reaction time in Real Life, your computer to your screen probably won’t register your fast motion. If an upgrade is not available for you, try turning down some settings in your games to increase frames for a smoother image. Graphics Cards can also affect framerate so even if you had a good Monitor, your Graphics Card might be a reason your frames are improving as well.

All that being said, let’s take a look at some of the NVIDIA charts that they showed us.

I’m pretty sure this graph also applies with AMD Graphics Cards but that’s not the point. The point of this graph is showing you players performances based on their Graphics Cards. There are great players with not so great PC Builds, but we are talking the Average Joe gamer here.

Me being someone who switch from a 960 AMD Graphics Card to a 1060 NVIDIA Graphics Card, I can confirm these graphs are correct.

With all that being said, I recommend you upgrade your PC Build or get a 144+ Hz monitor if you haven’t already. Playing on a skill cap can be frustrating so break that cap if possible!
