Thank you for letting us know here.

Was hesitant upon acquiring it, mainly due to it being a Razer product line BUT your posting may change that.

Look, I don't openly hate Razer for making these input devices, it's the Synapse Cancer that needs to accompany the product if you want any higher settings above 1800dpi.

Can you let me know if you can set the current Overwatch Chroma to 4000dpi, remove the Synapse Software, restart the PC and find that the Mouse is still using 4000dpi?

Please let me know.....

Yes it will stick. I set the dpi to 6400 before i unhook the DA & use it on my XIM4. Settings stick even when i hook the mouse back up to my PC, i change it to 400 on my pc, 6400 is Bannana's. Lol so your 4k setting will be fine.

BRILLIANT, so they actually listened for once. All that screaming by their customers to allow some onboard memory to remember it's settings, has finally struck them.

Good to see they finally need to make their product line more customized to their clients wishes and having onboard memory is a great start drum.gif .

start? on-board memory isn't new for razer, the copperhead had it, so did the lachesis 4k. i assume there were more, but i wouldn't know.

a few other mice, at least the earlier DA versions, had memory to store only the dpi (and polling rate?), but nothing else. uninstalling the software means the LEDs light up again, and the profile button becomes useless.
(it's probably the same with his Chroma?)

Synapse probably makes it a lot easier for them to monitor and control everything. and i guess not adding actual on-board memory is cheaper/safer too.
real shame imo. i like how for example logitech allows you to just store everything you want. i disagree with forced firmware updates however (at least, that's what i read).


...how does that even work on tournaments, do razer-sponsored players get a PC with synapse installed?

Doesn't the DA 2013/Chroma have onboard memory? but I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that tournament organizers sets everything up for players (configs, drivers) depending on what teams tell them that they need.

Also at this dreamhack every player had a personal PC with all his settings, with their nametag on the PC or something, admin said it was to reduce setting up time. (Players still not allowed to setup the pcs themselves, to avoid cheating)

Pretty sure the DA stored the basic settings since the beginning, including DPI, polling frequency and LED state. The DPI button on 3-3.5G DAs is driver-dependant, and on DA2013 it is surface calibration and macro features that are only available when the Synapse is running.

my 3g and 3.5g don't save LED states and i doubt i got special DAs with extra limited functionality rolleyes.gif
tbh i don't even remember if cpi and polling rate get saved. i'm just gonna test it myself tomorrow. too much misinformation on the internets, can't trust anybody!

i believe they don't. i think you need to have the drivers installed and the settings stored on your PC for the mouse to load them.

in fact:

No longer limited by last generation onboard device memory, Razer Synapse brings the brain of the Razer DeathAdder Chroma to the cloud, expanding the number of storable profiles and configurations to infinite, and allows for longer, more complex macros.

For my 2014 Chroma, I installed synapse, set CPI to 1000 and then uninstalled - it saved the CPI setting.

From what I remember though, it didnt save click settings or lighting or surface calibration (for LOD).

how about polling rate, have you checked that?

I just digged up my DA, im pretty sure polling rate was 1k at default, and I never changed it.

Mouse rate still reports 1000 Hz.
