Competitive Gaming 1000 hz vs 500 hz polling rate - Page 5

post #41 of 150
I've been wondering about polling rate since I got my new motherboard 1.5 years ago.
It has a "Fatal1ty" mouse port that allows you to turn it up to 1000hz.
Which caused my 9$ logitech mouse into a beast.....(after I turned off mouse smoothing that is).
Now I'm using a Steelseries Sensai Fnatic at 1000hz in a 1000hz Fatal1ty mouse port.
Feels good.

Also this is not just placebo, my brother who used a MX518 for years at 125hz. When I bought him an imperator he set the same DPI as the mx518 but the mouse shipped default at 500hz and he too felt he needed to increase his sens.

I play at 20 cm for a 360 degree turn plus I use acceleration in quake.

That's typical if you have "mouse smoothing" turned on in windows.

But when i raise to 500Hz, i notice change a lot..

Now, i have a question about my sensitivity in a game ( Quake Live ).
Currently i use: 800dpi and 125Hz >>> and my sensitivity is 3.750 and mouse acceleration 0.48

So, my question is "How would i need to change my sens/acceleration, if i still used 800dpi but raised Hz to 500Hz or 1000Hz ?"
Thank you, greetz

Afaik polling rate does not influence sensitivity. It can affect sensor performance though.

It affects sensitivity if you have "ENHANCE POINTER PRECISION" turned on.

By mouse smoothing are you referring to some reg patch? I don't have pointer precision enabled.

Perhaps in some joke game like World of Warcraft or Battlefield 3 where any brain dead person can be considered ''competitive'', but I doubt you'll ever find any Counter-Strike 1.6,Source or GO that play with that kind of FPS. Probably won't find any that regularly goes to lan that doesn't use 120hz.

I don't consider BF3 do be a competitive game at all. And I don't know about CS pros as that game has always been boring to somehow. But I know some TF2 pros that became good with very bad setups, just because their skill allowed them to. I think these days they have upgraded to 120 Hz and better hardware as well, but my point was that they were able to reach the top without it.

I can definitely agree with the people who claim they feel a difference 500hz vs 1000hz.


I do notice a difference, but its not much. From polling rate detection programs that I've seen, 500hz is more stable as it has trouble at staying above 500 when moving slowly. However if always moving quickly then 1000 is for sure beneficial. 500hz seems most stable in more circumstances.

It's easy to feel the difference imo. 1000Hz feels less stable since it takes longer to "accelerate" up to 1000 from 0. To me it feels little like mouse accel in certain mid speed movements.
