"Raising the DPI is completely against the logic of performance"

Pushing for high dpi, the route of all problems. Thank you Razer for marketing that dpi equals precision and in the meantime ruining any possibility of steady improvement in sensor tracking with the passing of time. Just imagine if this lie never took off how many gaming mice with great tracking would be available at this point.

and they all would have more interesting DPI values like 1000-2000 which is pretty much the highest I would ever go, its useful for desktop use / RTS and fine for fps

To be fair, Logitech is/was just as guilty nor will change in terms of providing products that compete.

This is actually part of a campaign setup back sometime 6 months to provide a better understanding of the hardware and implications imposed from a consumer aspect.

Razer marketing material actually recommends 1600-1800 DPI as a median for typical usage.

I feel like 1800 is the max someone could make use of in some situations. I think we all could be satisfied with 1500 and under. There needs to be a study done to find out.

Questions: Adding resolution is done physically or can it be done programming wise? Also does this mean there is only one true native CPI for each sensor? Would the 3050 be better than the 3090 @ 500 CPI than the 3090 @ 800 CPI?

Also, you can't place blame on anyone but the sensor manufacturer(s) supplying the hardware. It isn't their fault the market has been at a standstill and lacks basic competition.

Lack of profit and patent trolling isn't going to get you far.

Patent trolling is the death of progress. They seriously give out patents for anything and they let people have them for far to long.

From what I understand, 3090 @ 1600 CPI would compete with 3050 @ 500 CPI on a basic level. There seems to be a bit of resolution compensation based on numbers, but I'm not exactly positive enough to extend my claims.

Those numbers of course extend beyond the native matrix by 2.

Aaaaah...

Now I can finally put a name to the very reason why I could no longer stand the Zowie AM/CM Storm Recon ...

Their pixel walk is horrible tongue.gif

(no kidding, it pisses me off to no end in games requiring headshots like cs go)

SAVU is better in this aspect. G400 with no prediction and the old DA 1800 dpi were absolute beasts in this aspect and respond to the absolute minimum of movement.
