Which polling rate do you use?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey, 

What polling rates do you guys use? I can’t decide if I should use 500 or 1000 on my viper ultimate. I know the higher one gives you 1 ms faster response time. What’s your opinion and experience with that?

Thanks for the answers ^^

i have no idea how it works in any way.

but if it makes it faster then go for it.

keep in mind that helping with problems is hard if you aren't specific and detailed.

The higher one cause your aim to be “more precise” tracks your every small shake and wiggle. Aim feels less smooth but more responsive

I just leave polling-rate and DPI at whatever default settings. Never noticed any meaningful difference when fiddling with them.

That means absolutely nothing.
I do notice a difference...
And i bet a professional gamer even more so.

Where does this idea come from, "oh I don't notice it so it don't exist". Its so damn selfish.

Anyway the polling rate is the amount of times it reports back (per second on most apps) i put that to the max. So it always gets the newest data.

I do the same for my screen, have the most fps possible. Even tho it wont display it all you do get the newest frames possible.


When i ask for more specs, don't expect me to know the answer!

Feel like its better to set a dpi and use it for a long time and not fuck around with it.

 

 

 

As for dpi i use 1600 and polling rate is 500 beacuse thats the max my Ultralight 2 will go to stable.

What are you babbling about? I didn't say it doesn't exist, I didn't say jack shit about professional gamers or anything the likes. I just simply commented about MY experience. Go grind your axe elsewhere.

Some people say that they can tell the difference between 500Hz and 1000Hz but that's bullshit.  I run 1000Hz with no problems so I keep it at that

1000Hz and especially if you use 240Hz monitor it's good to have it so.

I mean there is difference though. It may not be some instantly drastic difference, depends if you play high framerate game on high hz monitor too. Over time and mice changes I changed from 800dpi 500Hz to 1600dpi 1000Hz and it feels more smother and responsive really. Not saying you can't play well on old config but yeah. 

For 240Hz+ display we'll see 2000Hz polling rate too.

try playing on 1000hz for a month and then switch back to 500, there is a difference. Gotta love the Panda ^^
