Positive acceleration in gaming mouse sensors

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Just took a look at the 'Mouse Sensor Reference' sticky.

Is there any reason there are so many sensors with positive acceleration that can't be turned off?

eg. The G9x, Xai, Kinzu, Kone [+] to name a few.

I mean, it's pretty widely known that most gamers do not like mouse acceleration.

I don't get it. kookoo.gif

Woah... you're right. I didn't notice that!

So I'm guessing it was some sort of design flaw with the sensor or something? Since the other avago sensors don't seem to have acceleration.

BUT... do you actually notice it? tongue.gif

If your sensitivity isn't low, you'll most likely not notice it.

Pretty sure acceleration isn't an actual feature, but rather a flaw. Angle snapping/prediction is a "feature" (many people including me can't stand it, while others swear by it) that can be disabled on certain mice, but I've never seen any mouse than can turn acceleration on or off.

For SteelSeries, that's a feature rolleyes.gif

Does the Kinzu have mouse acceleration?

The SteelSeries Kinzu was built with hardware level acceleration which is preferred by some of the top gamers in the world. Although mouse acceleration has been coined as a villain in some gaming circles, it is slowly but surely becoming a valued feature for certain top gamers whom can utilize its benefits to the fullest. The major gripe with mouse acceleration is inconsistency. This inconsistency is due to software-based acceleration tools such as Windows mouse acceleration which is built for basic tasks such as web browsing, not precision gaming.

We’ve built the Kinzu to be a precision gaming tool for the next generation of gamers demanding consistency, as well as the latest technology. It is our one and only mouse that utilizes hardware-based acceleration that is built into the mouse sensor itself. This provides unparalleled consistency. The technical basis behind this is that the mouse normally has to communicate with your operating system's shell in order for the sensor movement to become a cursor movement on your screen. Acceleration will be added within your operating system only and this change may not be communicated between your mouse and computer. By implementing hardware level acceleration as we have on the Kinzu, you control the acceleration with one tool instead of leaving it up to your operating system to figure it out.

We do realize that some gamers swear against mouse acceleration and refuse to subscribe to the preferences of some of the next generation’s top gamers. If that’s the case, the Kinzu is not for you! Finally, it is important to note that the SteelSeries Kinzu is our one and only mouse that utilizes this exclusive acceleration engine that is implemented on a hardware level.

I like that part, "preferred by top gamers in the world".
