500 or 1000 report rate?
« on: 11:31 AM - 11/13/15 »
I was wondering if anyone with more technical knowledge could tell me which is best for the XiM?

I'm using a G502 mouse at 12,000 DPI and I've seen some say that 500 polling is best but I don't really notice that much of a difference between the two, is there something I'm missing?

+1, but with your permission I'd like to expand your question.

I've been told that different G502 settings are better, I also would like to know which is the best between the options listed below. Thanks in advance

12,000 DPI + 1000 Poll Rate
12,000 DPI + 500   Poll Rate
8,000   DPI + 1000 Poll Rate
8,000   DPI + 500   Poll Rate

I recently moved from a G500 @ 5600 dpi to the G502 and after trying out dpi's from 8000 upto max its 12000 dpi all the way for me.  I also tried 500 to 1000 polling and also could not feel any material difference so have stuck with 1000.  I think some people with certain types of setups / mouse mats were having issues (cursor bounce) but if you don't suffer this I would stick at 1000 polling.

This is definitely mouse-specific. Different mouse sensors have different behavior at different poll rates.

Personally I use 1000Hz on my G502.

I mainly run 6400 DPI @ 500Hz on my G502 but I have multiple profiles setup to switch between different DPIs

1800/500hz and 12000/500Hz

12k/1000Hz for me felt to jittery on a high sens setup where as 12k/500Hz felt "smoother", 1800 was fine at 500Hz never tried it with 1000Hz, but I settled on 6400 DPI at 500Hz as it felt perfect.

Mouse Pad: Razer Goliathus Speed
Sensor Tuned to Surface.
