Not quite sure what you mean by "smoothing", could you please elaborate?

If you prefer your mouse high sensitivity, you will benefit from high DPI for accuracy and tactility.
If you prefer low sensitivity you do not need a high DPI mouse.
The resolution you game at has nothing to do with sensitivity or DPI.
All DPI in a mouse does is smoothen movements. Don't get caught in a marketing trap about anything else.

DPI correlates to your screen resolution. So say you're playing on a screen resolution of 1024 X 768 but you're using 1600DPI, its going to very sensitive.

People these days play at higher resolution though these days. Which means the mice needs to be able to distinguish more pixels. So say your mice only has 100, now the resolution that people run these days have more than 100 pixels in a inch. Because of this you would need to raise your DPI that way you're able to accurately track every pixel.

Certain mice have a "optimal DPI" and "optimal polling rate" though like the Deathadder. Running the deathadder with 1800dpi and 1000hz. This is with the older deathadder though that was capped at 1800dpi.

I don't understand why you posted an irrelevant article. The deathadder 3g was one of the only sensors to track fastest at the native 1800 dpi and even at 1920x1080 resolution you get from left to right in 2 inches and top to botton in 1 inch at 1000 dpi. That is hardly slow. In shooter games it doesn't even matter.

Where was this irrelevant article? No where did I post a article. That "article" was written by me from another post and is quote relevant as S.M. said that the resolution you play in has nothing to do with DPI, which in fact wrong.

Picture on the other hand is irrelevant, but I copy and pasted it like I said and was too lazy to edit it out.

Where did I mention that 1000dpi or even 1800 dpi was slow?

Read everything I typed again. rolleyes.gif

What a load of...

Anyway, take a look at THIS site. Should explain everything.

The calculator is for the Quake-Engine, so no problem entering values from COD.

For example if i put my sens on 1 on 900 dpi.. whenever i scope i can feel theres only raw movement. the cursor will go exacly where i want it to. if i put it on 450 and 2 sens... theres something to make up for those pixels inbetween every pixel because i gotta use more force to actually land a scope kill and it doesnt feel as fluid as on 1 sensitivity.

QcK+ and Xai is a terrible combination imo. If you can get used to 9HD, good for you!

It's because at your resolution (1920x1080) you need around 650DPI. Which is why 900DPI feels so smooth, where as 450DPI with a two sensitivity feels like it's skipping pixels. If you were to play at a lower resolution, 450DPI would be not be an issue, but because you're playing at 1920X1080 it's best for you to play at the 900DPI interval so there is no pixel skip.

What game do you play? If you're playing CS 1.6, your best bet is to play at a lower resolution. 800x600 or 1024x768, I really dont suggest going above those resolutions though as registration is most optimal at the lower resolution.

Counter Strike: Source on the other hand can be played at any resolution.

No worries! I had a feeling of that as I swear you've agreed with me before tongue.gif

Absolutely correct!

The reason why laser mice do not work very well on cloth mouse pads is because it tries and track all the micro gaps between the fibers/cloth on your mousepad. Hard pads on the other hand do not have this issue as its a hard flat surface. So there are no gaps like the cloth/fibers on soft pads.
