Yes and No. Yes, your rotational turn will be the same, but that doesn't say anything about how that rotation feels. The tracking of the sensor could
be drastically different between these two steps, but more importantly, the radian size of your first example is going to be significantly smaller than the second (not necessarily good or bad). And I should repeat for emphasis, these settings we use are entirely preferential
, so pick one, and adjust till you find good settings for you.
When I started thinking about this seriously, I began with 800 CPI and 1sens, then moved to 400 CPI, then moved back to 800 CPI and 0.6sens. That last setting feels pretty good to me right now, but that's just me, pretty everyone in this thread is going to differ slightly, or drasticaly.
Also, is it faux pas if I request a sticky for my own thread as it covers pretty much everything about sensitivity, and so maybe this topic won't keep popping up every 2 weeks? http://www.overclock.net/t/1251156/an-overview-of-mouse-technology/
p.s. Skylit is right in that hardware is the limiting factor here for accuracy/performance.
