Which of the 3090er mice have an acceptable 1600 dpi step?

I want to know this as apparently the g400 interpolates hardcore on 1600, but I would like to reproduce my mx518 aiming more closely.

G400S

The original G400 halves two steps. Tracking will be the same as the original step.

wait. why should the g400s be different? it just has more dpi. the g400 interpolates down from like 2 or 3 steps. like 100-790 are interpolated from 800. 810-1790 from 1800. 1810-3590 are interpolated from 3600.

but ur telling me the feeling is the same on g400s? hmm.

The 1800 step is halved from 3600. I believe the driver recalculates everything above 800 from 3600 as it previously did the same with initial release, hence the whole IPS bottleneck under early LGS.

G400s is nearly the same as G400, except, 4000 CPI. 2000 is halved from that on controller level. There are also additional properties to improve tracking stability, though some many consider that a con as specifics rely heavily on perception.

so who incoorporated the most reliable dpi stepping into their firmware? I just need 1600, not 1800.
or what are the actual side effects if I use 1600 on my g400? aside from having to install the driver again.

Like what, increased smoothing to contrast ripple at high cpi? Can you be a little more specific? Does this influence low cpi settings too?

I have a G400 but not G400s, if they have increased smoothing after raising DPI, then yes, it will affect lower DPI too.

But MX518 has angle snapping. Shouldn't that have bigger impact than a little interpolation?

Smoothing might not be the best term (not really what's happening), but I suppose that best explains it. There's compensation the manufacturer could implement for response feel such as frame rate modification, but architecture would most likely have to be reworked.

Outside of IPS increase due to frames per second, tracking code is very important. Frame rate while larger may feel better or worse than alternative implementations or sensor architectures. Bit of perceptive and subjective cases at this point.

iirc 6010 had specific update parameters that could be set to increase or decrease precision as a trade off for response. Not sure if this remains true for the alternative and older led architecture (3090; ironically "newer")

What word would you use? Is it not calculating the average movement between a set amount of frames? This is becoming a pretty hot topic, better clear things up before people start misusing terms and create confusion (kinda already happening).

It would be nice if future optical sensors could do that considering the latest market trends.. do you know if it's a feature on the 3310?
