What defines a gaming grade sensor?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I checked out woll3 table of gaming mice and the sensors they used... but how do you decide whether a mouse is gaming grade or not? E.g the MLT04 was never marketed as gaming but it is on the list... but the BT mice (except the SideWinder X8) which are supposedly the successor to the IntelliEye mice are NOT on the list.

It is a meaningless term. There is no guideline that shows what specific characteristics have to be met to be called a gaming grade sensors. It is just an empty marketing phrase.

First person shooters might warrant muscle memory, so consistent tracking would be had with the 3090 sensor, yet the 9500 and 9800 sensors seem to have inconsistent tracking, so the higher C.P.I. of the 9500 and 9800 might not be worth the sacrifice of the 3090's more consistent tracking in this case.

The ideal mouse, I.M.O., would have as close to exact tracking as possible at high inches per second, and this is not mentioning surfaces or latency.
