I've seen someone saying that it's not possible, and that the DPI steps can be set from 250 to 250.

Someone might have said something in this thread before, but I read a few pages back and I couldn't find anything.

DPI steps are:
250 - 500 - 1000 - 1250 - 1500 - 2000 - 4000

Aight, thanks.
Are you going to stick with the R100 or are you going back to the G303?

Whenever I come back from my business trip I'll finalize my review. But I can already give a short summary: It's fine for 500 CPI and below, but above the sensor a) feels bad and b) is capped via max counts per poll of 127... So max tracking speed is lowered with every higher cpi step.

I used this mouse for about a week. 500 DPI for CS:GO was good enough for me and I had no problem with the 1000 DPI step for LoL, just a bit to fast for my taste. But the clicks was just to bad so I gave up on it.

Yeah, can't really understand why Steelseries didn't use 12-bit motion data as the sensor should have that possibility (at least according to the datasheet the A3050 does) and the max speed wouldn't get capped like it does currently. But, as you said, it's bad at 1000 CPI+ so it doesn't really even matter.

Rynji contacted Steelseries and forwarded my question about the 750 CPI step seen in the A3050 datasheet and this is the answer:

The engineering team is currently investigating what we can do with the sensor in the future. An implementation of a 750 step is something we would like to do, but not something we can commit to right now, and can't guarantee will happen.

I believe I recognize you from Overclock, so please keep in mind this is a lower-priced, budget-minded gaming mouse, and as a result it is not really designed to meet / can't meet the highest requirements of the community for a perfect sensor. However, a lot of us recognize the demand for this mouse shape with a high-end sensor and will be pushing to get one designed. Hopefully it's something we'll be able to meet the demand for in the future.

Interesting iirc  it was the old Avago 2000cpi one that had no 750cpi in the register, the PixArt 4000cpi one on the other Hand should, whatever is going on is weird, but it just confirms my bias towards some pricing deal on old HW rather than any kind of "special sauce".

Mine isnt even shipped yet, and excuses are already popping up again on Reddit, but at least the rest(Zora, 250m and X5o) has already arrived,

altough im not sure what i am going to pit it up against, maybe im just doing an A3050 roundup.

The 4000 CPI step on the Rival 100 is even labelled with "DCPI" in the software because it just doubles the counts of the 2000 step... thumb.gif So there is no native 4000 cpi step.

Might wanna put that in the marketing then. But that would be expecting some form of competency from them.

Yeah I wanted to do a a3050 throwdown myself, but I get distracted very easily. tongue.gif

The reg a3050 never had a legitimate 750 register either.
