Thats the first thing that I wondered when I heard about this mouse. I wonder why they didn't do something different with the feet. The feet are probably my main gripe with the old deathadder.

This is why.

Scaled down DPI divides evenly from native DPI. It still using the native DPI resolution sampling data. It just omits some data (i.e. 400 DPI from native 800 DPI).

Agreed, yet I think it would make sense from a technical standpoint to try and see where the limit is, specially on a device with calibration, as we could see that the max speed might be equal on all CPI levels... Or see it diminishing until a limit.

Also, what mousepad(s) did you use?

This is S3888 from Abyssus, notice it's partially covered by the pcb (it's even longer):

Keep in mind that Abyssus's PCB is significantly smaller than DA's, yet keeping the proportions, the new S3988 does indeed seem a bit shorter, which could be because the pins have been pushed to the up and down sides instead of only on the lateral sides (could be a space optimization by rearranging the sensor components, or a lower fab process, but tbh I can't say).

I'm thinking that the new pins are there to sync the calibration/control the LED, and that part of the resolution boost could be due to both illumination and a new specification to put the sensor lower, but I could be very wrong wink.gif

In any event, it's not only the sensor where the improvements need to be, I expect the whole mouse to have plenty of improvements to achieve those specs.

If that's the biggest gripe you have with the mouse, we can all go to the streets and celebrate in joy for a (almost) flawless mouse biggrin.gif
You can always replace the stock feet with thicker ones, like the PureGlide HD, or get ones with different shape and stick them on top, like the Xai/Sensei ones. It's a cheap "fix" that doesn't change the overall mousing experience. It would be far worse that the sensor, or illumination, or the microswitches, or the wheel encoder, or the PCB, or the MCU would be faulty, as they would be much more expensive OR they would require some technical skills to be replaced (mainly soldering).

Having non-native CPI steps equals to having sensitivity settings, only that non-native CPI steps can give a clearer picture on what you're choosing.

In any event, interpolation on the MCU tends to be more accurate than done on OS level via the driver's app, as long as the MCU is powerful enough (you don't need an ARM CPU on your mouse to do that, most 16 bit MCU's exceed the needs to do it), as it is touching untampered data coming from the sensor, and this is manipulated once.

However, Razer is one of those few companies where interpolated settings don't feel "wrong", they have a fairly good implementation.

Had.  You should try synapse with a 3.5G  :)

ya my deathadder black works fine on the interpolated steps of 900 dpi on the archive drivers. On synapse it is terrible lol. That being said I will buy one of these the moment I do not have to log into something to use it with the dpi and button settings I want.

Not willing to touch it.

Not even with a stick tongue.gif

Will have to do for testing purposes though.
