Did you know it’s possible to change the latency of a PC game as well? Our last article explored console latency, explaining how your controller’s responsiveness is largely tied to the developer’s vision of their game.

Some of these models received a firmware update that reduced input lag ratings by nearly half. One series that benefited from this update is Samsung’s 4K HU9000 series, once upgraded to the latest firmware. This firmware update drops the…
