lol floogerhopers... what'd you call me! bruce.gif

in any case, this mouse looks interesting... my Mionix feels a little too flat for me, the hump is shorter than my previous 2 mice (Sidewinder X8 and Roccat Kone[+])... but this doesn't have DPI buttons frown.gif

when is this beauty coming to the US? I really want. Do you know if its true that it uses the 3090?
post #5 of 17
it is true. how ever sounds liek they do a lot via firmware (100 to 3500 dpi, 3090 supports so far only 1800 and 3500).

Cool. Is the use of firmware really bad? I know in some instances firmware can be a hit or miss.

Firmware is a source of possible trouble.
post #8 of 17
would the firmware still affect the sensor, when used at the native settings (1800 or 3500)?

Uhh. The sensor is just hardware. The firmware or sensor rom is loaded to a main controller which dictates tracking related speed or quality based on interpretation.

The "sensor" has usually something to make the pictures (IAS) and something to calculate out of the pictures movement (DSP) additionally to some parts for control of led (ctrl), operation (oscillator) and communication (serial port).

This movement data is transfered to a microcontroller (MCU) who will handle the connection to the PC and controls all the buttons and additional features that might be necessary.

The firmware usually refers to the code running on the MCU, the SROM refers to the code running in the DSP.
So while your firmware might be done somewhere in a chinese garage by the cheapest option available, the SROM is released from the sensor vendor, ususally some kind of international corporation.

Meaning even if the sensor uses native 1800 cpi the result could be influenced by the mcus firmware (delayed, lost, changed etc).
However the chances that this happens on a native setting are slim and at least you would not suffer from bad algorithms that may have been used to get form 1800 (native) to 450 cpi.

Much more elegant would be to get all cpi values supported as native values by the SROM.
