Most definitely. These are the videos that really help understand. I would love to see the following:

How boost works?
How smoothing should be applied?
Maybe even adjusting and creating curves in general?

Seeing it visually really helped like your videos!

thank you so much for taking the time to make these videos, they have helped out ALOT! QUESTION.... so with the resources you have provided about mouse polling rate I ran some tests and would like your opinion.

Mouse: Logitech G903 (Capable of 12k DPI, running: 4,000 DPI)
Test: Direct Input Mouse rate
500hz test: averaged 509 / Peak: 515
1000hz test: averaged 1019 /  peak: 1039Hz

so should i go with 500hz since the average and peak are closer to the polling rate where as 1000 is farther away where it should be?

Thanks in advance!

I was wondering this as well. On the mouserate program my 1k hz polls at 999 constant pretty much... the Hz goes over 1,000 often, sometimes up to 50 or past, but so does 500...... On the direct input test it reads like yours says, my peak is higher on 1000hz then it is on 500hz, it stays at about 511-515 compared to 1021-1027... does that mean 500hz is more stable?

I remember always overclocking my old school mice to 500hz and not bothering with 1k, but i know with todays mice it's kind of obvious these can poll 1k. Or marketing? lol. That's why i've considered the finalmouse, I have the old one from 2015.. bit outdated though. Its locked at 500 lol.

But why does my 500hz tests show the same kind of as 1k? The Hz goes over the average but the results on the direct input test "claim" its more stable on 500hz i guess since the peak is lower??? Am I understanding this correctly?

yes go with 500hz
to double check you can use the mouserate.exe its the best test out of the three since you can scroll through the individual reports

you will always have a minor jitter on the polling, its how the mice are made so you cannot undo this
the question is at which polling is the jitter in an acceptable range, +/- 50hz jitter or even more is quite significant while having a jitter of less than 20 is much better

next to that you also have to look into how often your mouse hits the desired polling rate in the individual reports (with +/- 1hz) so say 499, 500 and 501
when you have a jitter of around 50 then this sounds like you hardly hit the 1000hz but its more like 1020, 950, 1050, ... and just on average is 999 or 1000

I noticed I see my polling rate hit 499,500,501 a lot more then i see 999,1000,1001. it still jumps on 500hz but not as much as 1000 i suppose... on the other program my peak is 20 Hz+ on 1000 and only about 11-12+ peak on 500. I'm assuming I should use 500 then?

yes go with 500hz then, let me know how it works out for you and if your mouse movements feel more stable (as in less jittery)
