Zowie AM Tracking

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I only get about 2 m/s perfect control at 450 cpi / 1000 Hz on Puretrak Stealth using a custom logger (similar to Outerspace) and hand flick.

450 cpi step measures about 500 cpi using a ruler and raw counts
1000 Hz polling is consistent

Zowie AM-GS 450 cpi step @ 1000 Hz on Puretrak Stealth
216


Abyssus @ 450 cpi step @ 1000 Hz on Puretrak Stealth
221


Dots are individual reports
Black line is moving window average, 8 samples (8 samples ~125 fps)


Looks like perfect control is only at 2 m/s before negative acceleration, then it hits malfunction. Compare to Abyssus plot which hits over 3 m/s without malfunction or sign of negative accel.

nice have you done any testing at 500hz supposedly theres an extra 1 m/s of perfect control speed added according to haiyaa review

does the puretrak talent have a design on it liek the talent? maybe try a all black pad liek qck

The stealth is black without a design, just a small logo in one corner.

I'll try 450 cpi / 500hz next time I get a chance. If there is interest in other cpi/hz steps I can try some other ones as well. IMHO Enotus speed test isn't accurate, especially when the counts bounce around.

Thanks for the info, I thought AM trackin is flawless until like 3ms.
Could you try 1150/500hz aswell?
Oldie but goodie!

so why is it that Razer has complete control over the best sensor and yet does nothing with advancing it in development of new mice?

where's the Diamondback/Copperhead alternative using such a sensor? (sure, there was the DB3G, but it was a severely limited version of the original sensor with non upgradable firmware meaning unavoidable prediction as well as only 125Hz polling)

I'm happy with the Abyssus or even DA Black, but neither are absolutely perfect, both lack the extra buttons beyond either the absolute bare minimum 3 or 5 that would be useful for certain games as well as DPI buttons for toggling sensitivities for certain games

So far its been everyone but Razer offering less than perfect alternatives with the Xai/Sensei, Kana, Zowie AM, etc...

Try 450 dpi @500hz.

Are you sure that it hits malfunction so fast ? 2m/s is too low.

Polling Rate:

1000 Hz looks stable
221

500 Hz is stable too
221

1150 cpi @ 1000 Hz has the same negative accel at 2 m/s then malfunction
222

2300 cpi @ 1000 Hz does not have obvious negative accel, malfunction appears to be around 3 m/s

None of the 500 hz cpi steps have any obvious acceleration but there is still malfunction around 3 m/s.

450 cpi 500 hz no malfunction
221

450 cpi 500 hz with malfunction
221

It is malfunction for sure, here is what the raw counts look like. Easy to tell by the sharp drop and goofy tracking after.

So the mouse has a higher perfect control speed at 500hz then?
