Mouse with highest consistent polling rate
« on: 10:27 PM - 04/13/18 »
I don't believe this has been asked yet but I was wondering if there was a known list of mice that poll more consistently at 1000hz than others?
I use a program on my computer called "mouserate" and it shows the average poll rate but curious how popular mice compare to others.
If memory serves me well, a few years back I was able to overclock my mouse to have a higher poll rate. Not sure if something like this exists or how it would even be implemented but it just got me thinking.

Overclocked your mouse -- that's hardcore!

Honestly, I'm a little skeptical of any tool on a non-realtime OS like Windows that reports a metric like polling rate on a USB peripheral. Are you concerning that your mouse isn't hitting 1000Hz? If it weren't, are XIM APEX would tell you.

Thanks for quick response OBsIV!

Haha yeah I think it was an old classic Microsoft Intellimouse that only ran at 125hz and I overclocked it to 250/500hz maybe.. that was awhile ago
I agree "mouserate" is probably not the most reliable software for testing, I'm mostly just curious if anyone here has done any testing of their own and what they found. I don't think there is any problem with my Steelseries Rival 600
