NVIDIA Reflex SDK
With the NVIDIA Reflex SDK, game developers can implement a low-latency mode that enables just-in-time for rendering and optimize system latency (click-to-display) with measurement markers that calculate both game and render latency—great for debugging and visualizing in-game performance counters.

Activate this mode to align game engine work to complete just-in-time for rendering, eliminating the GPU render queue and reducing CPU back pressure in GPU-bound scenarios.
Get real-time latency metrics broken down by game pipeline stage: input, simulation, render submission, graphics driver, render queue, and GPU render. This is useful for debugging and for real-time, in-game overlays.
Using the marker system, configure the flash indicator marker to draw a small white rectangle on the screen for each click. This is helpful when automating the use of a tool like the NVIDIA Reflex Latency Analyzer to measure latency.
