Razer Imperator 2012

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I used to own an original Razer Imperator. The only issue it had was Z-Axis but if I used low DPI, it was very minute. Since it died, I have went through countless mice (AM, EC eVo, G400, DeathAdder 3G, etc). I am curious if the NEWER Razer imperator, 2012/4G has acceleration. I know the original didn't afaik, now I'm curious to know if they new one has because I just can't get over how good the shape is!

razer mice with the twin-eye sensor have negative acceleration aka "dynamic dpi-scaling"

Even at low DPIs? Sorry I'm not aware of the term

No it's not negative but positive acceleration and yeah they all have this "feature" which is called dynamic dpi scaling.

It's all about the mouse automatically decreasing the DPI to very low values when you move the mouse slowly. I don't know specifically to which DPI setting it reduces it but I guess it's something between 100 - 400 DPI. So of course if you are using the mouse at 400 DPI anyway than you won't really notice it much. On the other hand if you use it at 2000 DPI for example then the difference is a lot and that big decrease in speed is really annoying when doing small/slow movements.

The only Razer mice with the PTE sensor that don't have this "feature" enabled are the Lachesis 4000 DPI and the original Mamba 3.5G with firmware version 1.06 or lower.

The more people who contact Razer to tell them they don't want that Dynamic DPI Scaling enabled the more likely it will be that they listen someday and release a firmware without that DPI Scaling. Until then I can only recommend to stay away from these products.

Can't you just turn off all Windows acceleration and use generic drivers?

Unfortunately the processor in the mouse itself does that, not your computer/drivers. That's why Razer should release a firmware without that Dynamic DPI Scaling or at least make it optional.

I asked them about that, but they ignored me as of course they don't take wishes of individual persons.

I did ask them too, but what can you expect. They see this stuff as a feature for "PRO GAMERS" to pwn more frown.gif

It's actually an attempt to fix the jitter when you use PTE mice on cloth pads (or other soft surfaces), which happens because of the z-axis tracking when you click the mouse buttons and it sinks slightly into the soft mouse pad. So it "hides" that jitter but introduces some really horrible positive acceleration.
