News: Minimizing Mouse Latency with Roccat’s Pro Gaming Mice
Competitive gamers can minimize mouse latency with Roccat’s Pro gaming mice – the Kone Pro, Kone Pro Air and Burst Pro. Only a handful of gaming mice such as these are compatible with Nvidia’s Reflex software, which takes measurements to analyze mouse performance.
I didn’t know it was a thing, but with games getting more complex the mouse signal now travels through several processes starting from the CPU, then a render queue, and then the GPU (all before output to the monitor.) This software bypasses some unnecessary processes (as far as mouse functions go) for speedier response.
To be fair, most people won’t notice a difference. But when split seconds count (e.g. for serious E-sports competitors), then it’s worth making tweaks to ensure maximum performance gains from your hardware.

ROCCAT’S PRO LINE OF PC GAMING MICE SUPPORT NVIDIA’S REFLEX LATENCY ANALYZER
ROCCAT’s Kone Pro, Kone Pro Air, and Burst Pro Mice Support NVIDIA Reflex to Achieve Improved Responsiveness, Enhanced Aiming Precision, and More Accurate Location of Opponents
White Plains, NY – September 20, 2021 – ROCCAT, Turtle Beach’s (NASDAQ: HEAR) Hamburg, Germany-based PC gaming accessories brand, today announced that the Kone Pro, Kone Pro Air, and Burst Pro professional-grade PC gaming mice are compatible with NVIDIA’s latency measuring system, Reflex. NVIDIA Reflex is a revolutionary suite of technologies that optimize and measure system latency to deliver the ultimate competitive advantage. NVIDIA G-SYNC displays with Reflex have the world’s first and only system latency analyzer that detect clicks coming from gaming mice with Reflex and measure the time for the resulting pixels (weapon muzzle flash) to change on screen. PC gamers can start every match with confidence knowing their system is operating at the lowest possible latency.
When using ROCCAT’s Kone Pro, Kone Pro Air, or Burst Pro mice in conjunction with an NVIDIA G-SYNC display with Reflex, gamers can measure and improve full peripheral and end-to-end system latency. There are only a limited number of PC gaming mice verified by NVIDIA to achieve this designation.
“Our goal is always that ROCCAT products give gamers a competitive edge, and combining the speed of the Titan Optical Switches in our Pro mice with the ability to reduce system latency through NVIDIA’s Reflex technology certainly does that,” said René Korte, ROCCAT Founder and General Manager for PC Products at Turtle Beach. “NVIDIA is looking to improve the experience for all esports players, and our lightweight and lightning-fast Pro mice are designed to achieve this as well. We’re excited to be partnering with NVIDIA to make every click count.”
“NVIDIA Reflex gives competitive gamers an accurate measurement of system latency,” said Seth Schneider, Esports Product Manager, NVIDIA. “Using ROCCAT’s Pro mice together with Reflex enables competitive gamers to accurately optimize their settings and head confidently into battle.”
