1000hz mouse on a 500hz xim setting?? Help!
« on: 08:29 AM - 03/19/19 »
Hello everyone. My mouse is set to a native 1000hz polling rate. I recently discovered that it does not  consistently pull 1000hz and will jump to as low as 700hz. I am thinking of switching my Xims polling rate to 500hz hoping for a more smooth experience. The issue is that I am unable to change my mouse native polling rate from 1000hz to 500hz to match the Xims.
So my question is does anyone play with their Xim set to 500hz while there mouse is set to 1000hz? If so do you experience any issues? Will making the switch in the Xims polling rate create a smoother experience?

You can switch the Xim to 500 hz and play with a 1000 Hz mouse. This,will work just fine because your mouse will never go below 500 Hz. It should feel the same as 1000hz. The only time you would have an issue is if your mouse only polled at 250hz but you set your him to 1000hz. As long as your mouse can poll at the selected rate you can play on any polling including 250 Hz and 125hz
The Xim is not a magical tool that is going to make you a god. Time, effort and perseverance is what will take your gaming to the next level.

@ GamingNerd

Thanks for the feed back. If only I could change the polling rate on my mouse to test it out myself.

yeah before the Xim Apex came out the Xim 4  was 125 Hz  and hardly anyone run there mouse on 125Hz I ran mine on 1000Hz . the difference in running mouse and Xim4 at 125Hz in a game like COD was the AA was so strong you would get stuck in it,  which is fine unless your stuck on the side of the target. lol with Xim 4 polling at 125Hz and mouse at 1000 you still had AA but could break it. if that makes any sense.

XIM will ignore all input beyond its set response rate, eg if the XIM is set to 125Hz and the mouse is set to 1000Hz, 875Hz of that input would be ignored.

So yes, it's fine to set your XIM Apex to 500Hz and your mouse to 1000Hz. Half of the input will be filtered out.

So would it feel different than running 500HZ on 500HZ mouse? and how would it feel different if input is not taken from the extra 500HZ?

None.

If your mouse sensor introduce jitter at higher Hz, well you might notice a difference; another good reason to lower it to get a more stable input.

So go 500 Hz for both.

My question is why everybody hyped the 1000hz then if it isn't even recommended. I feel that threw alot of xim players off

1000Hz is great, as long as you don't get jitter. I don't get jitter, so I'm happy with 1000Hz. But, that doesn't necessarily make it the best setting, depending on console, game and environment.

500Hz is a rock-solid setting for everyone. Less chance of jitter, less chance of robotic chat, less chance of under-polling mouse sensors. But, 500Hz is 1ms more input lag than 1000Hz, no matter which way you cut it.
