1000hz and CPU ...
« on: 10:38 AM - 11/19/19 »

On PC when using 1000hz mouse polling rate, it means more CPU consumption. In the console there is this difference? Does 1000hz on Xim Apex consume more Xbox CPU than control at 125hz?

1000Hz can cause system lag on Xbox One, due to the console expecting input at 125Hz. This can manifest itself as garbled audio and in rare instances, dropped frames, depending on the game, party chat etc. On XB1, I personally wouldn't go above 500Hz as it doesn't seem to cause these side-effects.

Note also that this doesn't happen on PS4 as it's expecting 800Hz input from the DualShock 4 controller. It's a reasonable assumption that PS4 can run at 1000Hz with 20% overhead to allow for dropped packets to/from the controller.

Question about this, I know the 1000Hz can cause audio and sometimes even video glitches, but is it possible to crash an Xbox One due to overloading CPU? I just tried switching back to 1000Hz after some audio glitches and the Ground War match on CoD I got into, the whole system locked up in less than a minute. Was this just coincidence or can it possibly do this if the system was old enough, say a Day One version?

Wow, thanks for the info. I've been getting crackling noise on X1X and I thought my headphones were going but setting Xim to 500hz fixed it.

Reducing it to 500hz seems to solve CQC frame drops.
