Nvidia just announced the release of the new Game Ready drivers. These drivers, in addition to being important because they introduce NVIDIA Reflex support for Rainbow Six Siege and many other games (more details in the release below), are equally important for users of Ryzen Zen 3 (5000 series) processors because they introduce the Resizable features BAR also on NVIDIA cards.
Resizable BAR is a PCI Express interface feature that allows the CPU to use the entire memory frame buffer of the GPU more efficiently. As you move through a world in a game, the GPU memory (VRAM) constantly transfers textures, shaders, and geometry through many small CPU-to-GPU transfers. With the ever-increasing size of the game textures, this translates into a large number of transfers as until now it was not possible to use the entire memory frame buffer, and it was necessary to "fragment the transfers". Using Resizable BAR, resources can instead be requested as needed and sent in full and if multiple requests are made, transfers can occur simultaneously.
All this translates into an increase, sometimes even considerable, in gaming performance.
In order to enable the new feature, in addition to having a compatible Ryzen processor, the latest BIOS for your motherbard and the latest updated GPU drivers, you also need a firmware update of your NVIDIA 3000 series graphics card which can be downloaded here.

The addition of Reflex is essentially a free upgrade for a huge number of GeForce gamers. System latency (often referred to as "input lag") is a major factor affecting the responsiveness of any type of game. And, when playing esports, low system latency can increase competitiveness.
Being a split second delay when you pull the trigger makes the difference between winning or losing, therefore, reducing system latency can prove to be a huge benefit for Rainbow Six Siege players. Thanks to NVIDIA Reflex, system latency is significantly reduced - up to 30% in the Vulkan version of the game.

In almost all sports - golf, racing, football, etc. - the right equipment can be decisive for competitors in reaching their maximum potential. The same goes for esports - better GPUs, displays and peripherals can help you respond faster and more accurately to opponents.
NVIDIA Reflex provides a free upgrade for almost all GeForce gamers by reducing latency and improving responsiveness of GTX 10 series GPUs and the latest GPUs for Vulkan games. In fact, the benefits of reducing latency are typically higher for low-end hardware.
