In a new blog post, Nvidia has highlighted that players of battle royale games like Fortnite, PUBG, and Apex Legends can improve their kill-death ratio by a considerable percentage by utilizing a graphics card from the RTX 20 series, especially the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080, and RTX 2080 Ti.

A lengthy blog post from Nvidia has gone into detail about how members of the new RTX 20 series of GPUs can help gamers drastically improve their kill-death ratios in battle royale titles. One specific chart depicted that users playing Fortnite or PUBG on a system with a GeForce RTX 20-series card handling the graphics could achieve a 53% higher rate in terms of kill-death ratio compared to gamers utilizing a card from the GeForce GTX 600 series. The RTX 20-series GPUs used in this test were the RTX 2070, RTX 2080, and RTX 2080 Ti.

The post continues to explain how this considerably higher rate could occur: The RTX 20-series cards obviously produce higher frame rates, enabling the gamer to see the next frame more quickly and react to it; the frames produced are smoother, which assisted with aiming; fast-moving scenes, which are common in shooting frenzies in battle royale games, were easier to follow. Apex Legends fans were also informed that they could benefit considerably from the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080, and RTX 2080 Ti, thanks to their ability to offer high FPS on 120 Hz and 144 Hz monitors. All of those three GPUs managed to cross the 144 FPS mark for the battle royale smash hit (on high settings - 1080p; paired with an i7-8700K).

Obviously, high FPS, high monitor refresh rates, and low latencies are key to pro gamers enjoying a victory royale in the game of their choice. As Nvidia points out, “144 is the new 60.” The green team also demonstrated that pairing an RTX 20-series graphics card with a 144 Hz monitor or even a 240 Hz monitor could help a gamer achieve great improvements in their kill-death ratio (tested with PUBG and Fortnite).
