No longer need to adjust sensitivities between polling rates?  (Read 719 times)

I just edited my polling rate from 1000 to 500 to test the difference (my mouse doesn't always poll at a consistent 1000hz).
I was anticipating having to multiply my senitivites by 2, however it feels exactly the same. I've made sure to make the changes on the Logitech software as well as APEX Manager + restart XIM.

Are these Syncronization settings still necessary?
And what about the changes needed for Default to Off?
Thanks!

Default This is the default and is designed to generally work well on all games and matches the behavior of all XIMs prior to XIM APEX.
Common If your game runs at 60fps, try this setting. If switching from Default, divide your sensitivity by 2.
Slow If your game runs at 30fps, try this setting. If switching from Default, divide your sensitivity by 4.
Off Disables synchronization. Use this setting if you prefer to behavior of the retail XIM APEX firmware.

They may not be necessary but they will change how performance feels and will also change sensitivity scale.

Yeah I mean in terms of keeping a similar sensitivity

Correct, the new updates allow for you to change to polling rate and sensitivity INDEPENDENTLY of eachother. Meaning you no longer have to scale your sens based on whatever polling rate you choose. Also, 500hz is definitely the ideal choice for most mice; in my testing thee mice I've tested poll at 500hz way more consistently than 1000hz. Also, the differences in "feel" won't be that much or even noticeable other than the fact that you will have a much more consistent and smooth aiming experience due to your mouse not lagging behind. However, synchronize settings will in fact change your sens scaling. I keep mine on common, which is advised to do so with 60FPS games. Other than that, the only thing that should impact your sens settings would be your mouse DPI which will change accordingly but it doesn't sound like you're changing that aspect of your setup.

I find that 1000hz works better than 500hz on my G502 despite it not polling at a consistent 1000hz.
Pretty much the only game I play is R6.

Myth. A good quality mouse from a quality brand will always perform better at 1000hz, not 500hz, even if it gets 990hz sometimes. The input lag and connect feel has no comparasion.
