Zowie AM problem

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Getting some pretty weird issues with my AM on different OS's. On Win 7 I get a pretty stable 1000Hz but on XP I unfortunately don't. The Hz also fluctuates way more. Due to my PC being pretty crappy I'm kinda forced to play on XP. Otherwise I'm getting annoying FPS drops and can't enjoy the game at all.

1000Hz is deacreasing processor performance = less fps in CS
500Hz is ideal Hz for games = don't lose fps in CS

All this does is reduce the delay of sending the mouse data to the operating system. This has no effect on your sensitivity, but it will increase cpu usage.

So it's not a MOUSE problem.

I wonder what hardware you use that this impacts your game performance?

I was (so far) never convinced that this is more than a myth thats happily endorsed by mouse vendors to justify the cheaper MCU, but maybe my PCs are just always way too high end to notice a difference.

The mouse has slightly higher perfect control at 500hz according to reviews and people here who has it
Also, it might be a bit more stable on 500hz on your computer, try it out, not like 1ms delay it going to hinder anyone

Pentium E6300 at 3.3GHz
4GB DDR2 RAM
Radeon HD 4670

On Windows 7 on CS:GO I would never get more than 80-90 FPS and drops down to 50. On XP where my mouse is running on 500Hz I'm getting 90-150 FPS even with shadows enabled

It's just placebo, but I feel more comfortable with 1000Hz. When I plugged in the mouse for the first time it was running on 1000Hz and just felt amazing. When I tried 500Hz I just couldn't pull off as good shots and changed back to 1000Hz. No big deal, but I'd still prefer to have 1000Hz working because that's what I've been playing on since I got the mouse.


Edit: Same awful perfomance on Windows 7 no matter what rate I set for the mouse.
