500hz vs 1000hz

I tried to switch back to 1000Hz polling rate (mouse) after about of 3 years on 500Hz which I used because I saw kennyS (coldzera too I think) were using it so I tried it and forgot to switch back and now on 1000Hz it feels much better, kinda smooth but my ability to flick with awp is fucked, its like on 500hz I was able to flick really sharp but on 1000 its much harder to flick. What are u using? And what is your experience with mouse polling ratE?

Topics are hidden when running Sport mode.
everyone is using 1000hz iirc

good decision :) you'll be able to hit more insane flicks with 500hz

The thing is with 500 I think Iam able to flick more accurate because of the 'cut' which is there since its only 500hz and its kinda more 'laggy'

do you really find it to be 'laggy'? I think it just feels way more smooth, but it's just my perception. it may also depend on your sensor
2021-10-21 11:45
if u use 500hz in 2021 u are stack in 2005-2011 in 1.6

there is no real reason to use anything else than whats the max on your mouse

What do u mean? On 500 it feels different and for someone it might be more beneficial to use 500 rather than 1000

It's the same going from 4:3 to 16:9... It's just your brain didn't adapt the smoothness yet. Obviously you need to play DM for a few days constantly to adapt to it and of course 1000hz is just better

:D Then u are addmiting that 16:9 is just better than 4:3 :D Delusional

Are you using the highest resolution availabe in game? Why not? Its looking fancy, your fov is bigger, there is no real reason to use anything worse than best resolution. Your logic

no, not at all. Lower polling rate increases input lag. It's literally only a bad thing to use lower than highest polling rate. Not comparable to resolution at all this is not even a debatable fact, lower polling rate has higher input lag, which is objectively worse.

essentially with lower polling rate you are tracking less movements. So its actually less precise than higher polling rate.

Yes which might be beneficial for someone if you get used to it :)

not completely true, my mouse supports up to 8000hz, but setting it to that taxes the processor a lot, especially during rapid movements

You have the new razer mouse dont you, its actually not the pc processor failing, its the game engines not yet supporting 8Khz.

1000hz bestest
2021-10-21 11:44
i used to use 500hz polling rate back in the around 2005-2010 because as far as I can remember no mice back then was able to provide stable 1000hz i have been using 1000hz for quiet some time now, but i dont think i can tell the difference after all this time

Always used 1000hz, think I tried 500 and 125 but that feels just unplayable imo
2021-10-21 12:10
I switched to 1000hz 3 years ago just to try it and got so much better so i stuck with it. But it's preference at the end of the day.

it's kind of the same with 240hz and 144hz to me. I've been playing on 240hz for 1,5 years but when I tried switching back to 144hz it felt easier and better? obviously less smooth but it really didn't matter

i literally use 125hz cos i switched to it by accident at one point and got used to it, anything more feels bad now

yeah there is also difference in latency, on 1k I think it is lowest 1ms, and 500 its 2ms which is not that bad but I think anything lower than that has 5ms+ which is prolly kinda bad

I was on 125Hz random office mouses for a while until I decided to buy a better mouse because I wanted a mouse that doesn't spin out I didn't understand how players would move their crosshair so smoothly with no skipped pixels, even with high sens, until I tried 1000Hz polling rate, it's safe to say that there's no going back now

I've heard the same things from people that moved from membrane to mechanical (red switches) keyboards and even people who moved from 75Hz to 144Hz I just don't understand how tbf

Its placebo. No difference between 500 and 1000.

ofc 1000 i was playing 500 bcs i thought it was max changed it one day and my aim went uphill
2021-10-21 14:03
500hz is not like using 125hz still feels really nice and I don't think it will make that much difference since I play on 75hz monitor
2021-10-21 14:11
Why would anyone use 500
2021-10-21 14:18
1000Hz reduces sensor and click latency, no reason to not be using it
