Best tracking 2014

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So ignoring shape and weight, what mouse has the best tracking in 2014?
post #2 of 17
Rival
Avior
Naos
m45

Prolly some older mice like the Deathadder 3g.

Anyway.. many people interpret the words "mouse tracking" differently.

I own both Rival & DA2013.
Favor the DA2013.
Not sure if i'm willing to pay for a Mionix with same sensor as Rival.

Any mouse with the 3310. The S3988 is notorious for smoothing. When I tried the DA2013 it felt like the mouse was synthetically or artificially interpreting my movements instead of the more raw feeling you get with the 3310. To my knowledge the 3310 also has the highest maximum tracking speed of any sensor ever made (215 IPS). I have empirically tested it all the way up to 5.4 m/s on a variety of cloth pads.

Can you in any way demonstrate the smoothing on the DA2013?

I went from Kana V2 -> Rival -> DA2013, and in my opinion, the DA2013 bosses them all.
I personally cant notice any smoothing (negative acceleration?), but all I know is Rival seems off, and is not as easy to swipe around for crosshair placement, even tho ive been using it for far longer then the DA2013.
This is my first DA

The problem with the whole smoothing debate is there is no way to empirically test for smoothing...I guess except for comparison of jitter among mice with known low smoothing to the same CPI on the same pad with the mouse with possible smoothing.

I mean that could be the shape coming into play for you for the Rival...it is quite unwieldy with its weight and size. I have zero issues with the Avior, definitely a more nimble mouse.

do many people need above 4 m/s max speed?

for someone that doesn't go above 4m/s can you say the 3310 is better tracking then a 3090? I don't think so. And Zowies have less smoothing then the 3310 and the S3988...

If you can do the sensitivity test and land on pretty much the same spot when swiping slow & really fast, thats good enough for 99% of the people out there.
Therefore DA2013 shouldent be excluded.

The Rivals shape is really good, and I favor it over the DA. I have large hands.

Other than the max tracking speed is there anything the 3310 does better than a 3090?
I don't really get why max tracking speed is such a big deal anyways.
I'm using a 35cm/360 sensitivity, which I think isn't all that high and never had problems with max tracking speed, even for example on a G100s.

It has more native registry values (in steps of 50 dpi), but that's it. If you are fine with the native dpi of 3090 mice you don't need a 3310.

Instead if "best tracking" go for the one that fits your hand best while having either an A3090 or 3310. That should be pretty save. The tiny differences between certain mouse models with those sensors are largely personal preference, because as you said not everyone needs high PCS and rather uses a mouse with less smoothing and vice versa.
