its strange I only heard about the issues once 8.1 came out I was on win8 at the time and felt fine but was using another mouse I heared win8 had acceleration issues at launch but they fixed it.. this issue specific to polling rates you sure not 8.1 only?

You can't overclock the USB on windows 8 without external devices (such as special mobo) at this time, period. These other issues such as the Hz polling rate issue capped at 200 might be introduced in 8.1, I can't be certain, but it's irrelevant since a hotfix is out which fixes the problem.

The hotfix was later replaced with an update for everybody. But I'm not sure if it fixes it to make it work just like in Windows 7. This is how the Mouse Rate Checker looks like in Windows 8 (after the hotfix/update):


In Windows 7 on the same PC:



Maybe the program doesn't work properly or something... but this is what I get.

Fix only works for certain applications. This link allows the fix to work on all: http://www.blurbusters.com/systemwide-fix-win81-mouse-fluidity/

From what I remember, after the update rollup (which includes the mouse fix), I was unable to add explorer.exe or any other process to the list of exceptions. But this was months ago, so I'm not 100% sure. I'll double check next time I use Windows 8.

EDIT:
I installed 8.1 update 1 and it seems to be fixed now (the previous test was with 8.1).

is that a mouse you have overclocked on windows 8 after the fix or a mouse that has native support of 500-1000?

because I cant even overlock on 8.1 the mouse just cuts out on win start-up

Native 1000Hz, I've never done any overclocking on this PC.

I had a very large CPU-bound performance increase switching to 8.1 from 7, somewhere on the order of 190 FPS on the test map with win7 to a solid 260 FPS now on 8.1 with minimum graphics at 1080p, 4.5 GHz 2500K and GTX 770.

If you use the latest dmir and mmr I get reported 1000hz no problem flawless in windows 8.1.

Mouserate does not work in win8 for some reason.
