OBsIV and TEAM XIM, like the title asks, will there be a time where the XIM4 may reduce input lag to lower than the current 8ms it takes for the device to communicate/translate input via mouse and keyboard?

Perhaps it's something that could be worked on later in time once everything else is sorted?

If the USB rate is 125Hz I don't think they can. I've seen people say PS4 is higher polling rate, but don't know if that's USB or if it's confirmed. Haven't seen anything on xb1 at all. I'm sure obsiv or orbital could tell us for sure though.
That "natural curve" you [roads] are talking about was me taking a wild guess what the game was doing (which was completely wrong of course).

😂😂😭

8ms alone isn't noticeable but in games like COD where reactions can make a world of difference it does.

Not because of the 8ms by itself, but add the controllers own input lag as well as our TV's or monitors and you can actually by loosing a frame every second (16.7ms) and that matters in games like COD.

If the USB rate is 125Hz I don't think they can

Ah I see...

That's just some technical talk.. In reality, it's not noticeable one bit and something I don't care too much about.

A world of difference to what? Going 25 and 3 instead of 24 and 4 ..... I mean if your a pro gamer that might matter for the money but for us everyday folk not so much.  ;)

Everybody has a different sensitivity to LAG, It may not be noticeable to you, but could be a huge difference to someone else. It's like when someone say's you can't see more then 60FPS/HZ, I just sit there & laugh cause I know it's not true.

When the XIM3 & EDGE got the "824EX Firmware" update to reduce the latency from 16ms to 8ms, It was a night & day difference for me, even for XIMMER's like Roads.

If I could have a firmware build with 4ms I would be delighted!
I just wanted to say that you are a phenomenal gamer. You make it look so easy and your gameplay has this commanding "tone" to it (i.e. not frantic -- more of a dominating calm :) ).

the issue isn't the XIM's input lag it is the controllers default polling rate

That's why the OP asked the question in the 1st place :)

The DS4 polls at 250hz (4ms), Yet the XIM still has a 8ms delay.

Obsiv, can you try? This makes a lot of sense.

Refresh rate is 2ms and input lag is about 3.8ms from some reviews.
