This was not my idea. And that’s how it goes, some ideas get in and some get trashed. The only problem is when there are no ideas at all.

Just so we're clear rook ;) its got nothing to do with aiding human response time.

So to all those that thought it was?

DERP!!!!!

@Dale i asked OBsIV to put it on the list, as proof of his commitment to his statement! I imagine he would have put it on there eitherway.

But yea, Roads has done nothing but sit on the fence this entire thread.

Don't you dare try to piggyback on my thunder!
This was all me baby!

Wid a lil help from Toqy & Headhunterz.. The rambo grandad bottled it after page one.

And @Dale he had no intentions as he didn't want to destabilise the XIM.
But its cool, you need something to clutch, i dont see you doing it anywhere else...

According to some people he wasn't...............
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).

Your cheek must still be stinging from that massive slap you just got.
You probably can't hear me because your ears are still ringing.

So much for not being a part of the argument, then jumping in last minute...

The only people that care about hardware to this extent are the people who need the help.... I don't care either way. 4ms clearly isn't affecting me now- Complainers will always be complainers-  #truthistoopainful.

So I did that 0ms 4ms 8ms test thingy and I'm curious to see what Publix got.
I swear to god I will bring forth a rage so complete in it's fury that your innards would boil from the sheer amount of energy pouring from your monitor.

Rook said everything that can be said.

Do you just wear a bib constantly throughout the day? To catch the tears, dribbling, and your food?

XIM is special because of the lengths we go to synchronize all your peripherals, console, audio, bluetooth com, etc. so that XIMs clock adjusts for drift of the consoles clock to ensure the passthrough is perfect. Every cycle is accounted for. We will not be destabilizing everything to shave another 4ms off when the benefits are ambiguous.

So in a nutshell you can't ever lower the input lag from the XIM to less than 8ms with everything the XIM already does?

Also that 8ms from the XIM is an addition to the controllers 8ms on the XB1 and the 4ms from the PS4 and whatever people's TV's and monitors are, is that correct?

No.

the XIM + controller input lag = 8ms

This is independent of your monitor lag...

So for 3.4ms for your monitor...

Monitor
3.4ms polling
|---|---|---|---|

XIM + controller
8ms polling
|------|------|------|


That's how it works...they aren't synced they both just run so you are at max with your setup going to have a worst case scenario of 8ms lag.

Thanks! Ask questions if needed

Avoid much?
