125 hz is scientifically superior
There is hertz for your mouse wtf
I don't know in other mouses but in zowie I feel that 1000 hz it's better for spray and 500 hz for aiming and taping.
It's personal preferences and your way you feel most comfortable with that and all other settings, play what's feel 'right' and there you go keep changing settings all the time will do only worse
lower uses less cpu, which can be beneficial in cpu dependant games, just like cs go!
Everyone says that 1000hz is best because when moving the mouse it updates every 1ms were as with 500hz its every 2. But it doesn't really matter when gaming, its just best to choose the one you prefer, as long as you don't play at 125. I see alot of people argue that 500 gives you more ''control'' and is more consistent as it removes errors in your movement since with 1000hz it follows your movements precisely and its hard to keep perfect movement. Its really hard to explain but try playing with 1000hz and then lowering to 500 and see what you like it.
1000 for csgo, 125 for crossfire
No difference, can't feel it at all.
the higher the better, but it also requires more from the cpu, so it's your call wether your cpu is already at a high % or not.
i just use 1000hz no questions asked , old school tier1 microsoft mice from 1.3 era were 500hz i think.
test it and if all feel the same go for 1k
its all depends on sensor, on my g102 500hz feels more responsive, while 1000hz feels too smooth
highest is better if you can control it. some people like lower hz cos its less responsive and smooths out micro movements more.
no reason to use anything other than 1000 in 2019. if you have parkinsons maybe you should go lower
Im afraid no matter what that will help you little against cheaters..Good luck finding a match without cheaters these days ;)
Whatever hz/dpi that is native to your mouse is ALWAYS the best choice. Which normally is 400 or 800.
But its easy to google and find out what sensor your mouse is using.
Otherwise the mouse will have to software gimp or emulate extra hz which could create unneeded input lag or faulty movement from the mouse.
Lets say the sensor natively reads the surface once per 1.5 ms, if you emulate and use a non-native hz it will try to read and emulate it as precise as possible. Which will not always be perfect.
Just as a very short visual example. Lets say the mouse wants to read the surface each 1ms.
It will more then likely be:
1ms 1.1ms 1ms 1ms 1.2ms 1ms etc.
Wow, seems like nobody (or almost nobody, I only read the top half of the thread) knows the right answer. I guess I'll chime in: it depends on your mouse.
For any mouse made within the last two years or so, go for 1000hz. It's the most responsive and even though 500hz is fine, there's basically no reason not to use 1000hz these days.
It was common advice back in the day to set your mouse polling rate to 500hz because most mice manufactured back then wouldn't be able to support a stable 1000hz rate (they'd often fluctuate between 700ish-1000), and if your mouse was made earlier than a few years ago, this is what I'd actually recommend that you do. You'll lose an upper maximum of 1ms response time on your mouse input, but it'll be completely consistent across any mouse made in the last ten years.
1000hz is more accurate but i guess you could argue that using 500 hz some of your hand movement doesnt get recognized by the mouse so it wouldnt appear on screen resulting in a better aim. This goes both ways tho and could also result in you thinking you moved the mouse to a different position than it points on the screen because the sensor didnt pick up on all your hand movement.
the hz of your mouse should be the same as your dpi in game, it's the best for your muscle memory
500hz you can feel it when you are trying to adjust or aim tiny pixel using your wrist, but when doing a 180 or 360 turn with your arm, i dont feel any difference between 1000hz and 500hz, it could have a slightly difference but i just cant feel any difference. ive tried 125hz it feels weird when i try to move and track a static bot head, my crosshair looks shakey..
either 500hz or 1000hz depending on the mouse. Some might jitter a bit on 1000hz so 500hz would be the sweet spot
