Quite content after removing the positioner, just not fond of DPI steps.


PS: Zowie mice aren't setup in a typical fashion. IPS speed is rather high on 2300 resolution.

Yeah. If they changed their lens the CPI wouldn't be so high. We know the lens is shorter than Avago's. Plus it would use light better.

The malfunction speed would go up about 0.5m/s, I think. That is big... in my opinion.

Well, would depend on setup involving data counts.

If they wanted high IPS and a high resolution, FW would require less tweaking for optimal coverage with designed lens. Max res would be 1800 with half and quater scaling down like the DA.

IF they went with alternative 6x SROM and setup in a traditional setting, IPS will likely be lower at comparable resolution. 400 and 800 DPI will yield highest tracking spec (and can perform at well over 170+ IPS/4.3+ms on proper surface) assuming no data limitation and clean FW.

Both beneficial at native range. 1st option is more situational as interpolated CPI seems to perform weaker or less consistent with specific controller. Might just depend on implementation, but i'm not a coder smile.gif


Precision quality and IPS can both be achieved with good engineering. The issue is that many people want low lift off as well.


Quite the predicament as you either have to appeal to dedicated crowd or optimize your product for all around compatibility.

Not in my eyes! 1800 would be perfect for me! >.>

The zowies (specifically the ec2 and sometimes the AM) are pretty much my go to mouse anymore. Just because of the size/shape comfort but man, those steppings are bizarre. 450-not nearly high enough, 1150 - not quite enough (or slightly too much if you like 800) and 2300 - just way too much.

There's no sweet spot. Why they didn't go with a simple 800, 1600, 2xxxx I have no idea.

Custom solution outside of sensor manufacturer parameters.

At the time, they were limited as the sensor they choose only had 1800/3500 count resolution. They use the 1800 registry with custom lens effectively increasing count to 2300 CPI. The other 2 steps are recalculated from there.

Otherwise, 3-3.5mm~ would be average lift off on popular dark cloth pads such as QcK. Optimal, but many consider this a flaw when its not. A gamers preference.

So, i'm right i sould deal with 2300dpi / 1000 hz for the highest malfuction speed ?
post #676 of 714
I Think i will go for the FK. Feel much more better coat and better swtich. Also the shape look like better (i was looking for a model like Kana/Sensei)

hey guys, found this thread through good 'ol google ;-)
I ordered my zowie am-gs a few days ago and should arrive somewhere next week.

at the moment i'm playing Battlefield 3 with a deathadder 3.5g on 900dpi and ingame 0.04 (around 25cm/180).
Just wanted to ask owners in here, what is the optimal setting in-case of cpi on the zowie am?
450, 1150 or 2300? (always with adjusting the ingame sens of course)

Would be nice if some of you guys can share some experiences what seems to work best in terms of tracking

Thanks

450 dpi / 500 hz
post #679 of 714
i think (from reading the pages before) it's because of the highest possible tracking speed on that setting, right?
just wondering if higher cpi and lower in-game sense wouldn't be more precise...

but i'll go with that setting as soon as I receive it, thx a lot sir! :-)

Either the 1150 or 2300. The polling rate (500 or 1000) based on surface.

The "1150" is more like 1225 and the "2300" is more like 2450. Use Enotus to "measure" your DeathAdder's CPI and the Zowie's. Then multiply your DA's CPI with your in-game sensitivity. Now divide that number by your measured Zowie CPI.
