Every digital device in your setup adds a certain amount of latency when processing data. When you push a button, your input device sends a signal to your PC, which then processes it and sends the result to your display. Each of these steps takes a certain number of milliseconds to complete.

Your monitor is the most important of these devices. Choosing the right monitor will help you minimize input lag while getting the most out of your CPU and graphics card. Find out how to choose the right gaming monitor for your system with our comprehensive guide.

There are several ways to change the feel of your favorite PC game by employing the methods detailed above. While the results can vary by game, it is important to try these options if you are unsatisfied with the latency associated with default settings. One thing is clear, however: the absolute best way to reduce input latency while keeping a tear-free image is to acquire a G-SYNC or FreeSync display. For those on a budget, be sure to try the tweaks listed above and report your experiences in the comments below!

When considering the responsiveness of a monitor you must consider what the user feels when trying to interact with the monitor as well as what they see with their eyes. Input lag is all about the delay between the graphics card sending a frame to the monitor and the monitor displaying that frame. The basic component of input lag which affects the feel is referred to as the signal delay and is commonly measured in milliseconds. There are of course other sources of latency beyond simply this signal delay and not all of it comes from the display itself. This is covered in this excellent article by AnandTech, but we shall be focusing on just the monitor here. A lower input lag is advantageous because it leads to a snappier feeling when you interact with the display using your mouse or other controller.

Fullscreen optimization is a feature designed to improve your PCs performance during gaming sessions. But there are certain games that are particularly affected by low FPS and input lag issues when players enable fullscreen optimizations. To solve the issue, you should disable fullscreen optimizations:

There are many different components in a typical PC gaming setup, and one of the main components you interact with is a keyboard. Latency, in simple terms, is the amount of time it takes to press down a key and have the action appear on your screen. Measuring the latency of a keyboard isn't as straightforward as it seems. Each part of your PC setup introduces its own latency or input lag, causing a small delay between when an action is registered and when it happens on-screen.

We already measure the input lag of monitors, which is the last piece of equipment that introduces lag. Your actions are first registered with either your keyboard or your mouse, so it makes sense to measure the latency of these peripherals on their own. This test, however, focuses on keyboard latency, so you can check out this article to learn how we measure a mouse's click latency.

You probably won't notice your keyboard's latency when typing or performing general tasks, as even the worst latency is only marginally detectable to a user. However, when gaming, latency is extremely important. Along with your computer and your monitor, your keyboard contributes to the latency between registering your input and the action being completed in-game. Since it's the first device and the one you initially register your input on, your keyboard should have the lowest latency possible, as this latency will contribute to the overall system latency and impact your in-game movements. While no keyboard is completely free of lag, gaming keyboards are designed to have extremely low latency.

Another factor is the polling rate. The polling rate refers to the number of times your keyboard sends the input data to your PC. Most gaming keyboards have a polling rate of 1000Hz, which means the keyboard sends information once
