Relationship between apex response time and sync
« on: 04:36 PM - 04/13/18 »
Hi obsiv,

What is the relationship between xim apex response time and framerate synchronisation?

If I set my apex to 1000hz in expert settings am I right in saying the apex attempts to send data to my xbox 1000 times a second?

I have read that the xbox one will accept the 1000hz communication rate.

Now enter framerate synchronisation....

Off = 1000hz I assume? And therefore the apex communicates with xbox one at 1000hz.

Common is for 60fps games... Does choosing this setting mean that the operating speed or the number of times the apex attempts to communicate with the xbox is reduced to 60hz despite the expert setting of 1000hz?

Does framerate synchronisation adjust the operating speed of the apex as set in expert mode?

Synchronize has nothing to do with Response Rate. They are independent. If you are running at 1000Hz, then, XIM APEX delivers input to the console at a rate of 1000 time a second.

 So framerate synchronisation is an internal function in the apex?

APEX sends to xbox 1000 times per second.

Translation of mouse movements occur 60 times per second when using the common sync setting.

Therefore translated mouse movements only change every 16.6 cycles (1000hz / 60hz = 16.6)?

No, thdy change every millisecond at 1000Hz. Your latest mouse input is always used. Otherwise, you'd feel the latency.

I fail to understand how synchronisation works :(

Yeah I thought you were holding out on me :)

The only reason I ask is to try and understand better how the settings might effect in game performance. Things such as aim assist.

I also wanted to try the slow sync setting on 60fps games and the common on 30fps games, which I can still do but wanted some background info to validate any conclusions I might come to.

I'm particularly interested in the relationship between mouse dpi, apex operating speed and synchronisation setting.

Eg what combination of the 3 variables creates the most/least aim assist magnetism.

If you plug in the XIM Apex into your PC via USB and then open it via Notepad++ you can edit nothing.

Let me know how you get on mate.
