I think I know what the problem is. Whenever I plug a different mouse into my computer, I uninstall the previous mouse's driver. It must be something to do with the initial driver installation because it only ever happens when I plug it in for the first time. It works fine after about a minute or two.

2 frames plus whatever the MCU added. I think it was another 2ms.

So are there any other problems with it? Would you recommend I install it?

Having no issues with the mouse so far since flashing the firmware.

Smoothing wise i could not tell a difference though.

Just try it out i would say.
You can still go back if you dont like it, but why would you.

Yes, download both the beta and original. You can revert back if anything seems janky.

How can such thing be true. I mean you can have that feeling but i dont believe a simple firmware with added smoothing would make you play better or vice versa. ´

I dont know, I couldn't explain why, but the gameplay was bad, and the only thing that I changed was the firmware, maybe I'm used to smoothed mice.

I mainly play CS GO, and on a DM match the game runs like this, you'll get the first kill with a headshot, then the next, and the next, and you start to get a row of kills. With the new firmware I was struggling to get this rows, it was like I had to play my best to get near the performance I was getting before.

I would actually say placebo is by far the most likely, but who knows.


Take Shroud for example, a famous CS Go player that actually uses 1080P resolution, he uses logitech mice, G303 and G Pro at 400dpi, not sure if he knows what granularity is tho, don't seem to affect his performance on the game.

The revel on beta it felt like out of control, I tried to lower polling to 500hz, and even test 400dpi ingame to see if I could get more consistency.

dpi isn't the only factor, ingame sens matters too

with low sensitivities, low DPIs are fine for granularity

Just booted up my computer and the Revel did the weird fluctuating CPI thing AGAIN. Reverting back to original firmware.

Edit: Flashed the original firmware and booted up my computer again. No problems. Think there is something wrong with the firmware, at least with my hardware @Peter Nixeus

Edit 2: Recreated my first boot up by turning off my computer at the wall, leaving it for a minute, switching it back on at the wall and turning it on. No problems on original firmware.

Edit 3: Just did the same thing with the beta firmware. Shut off computer and started it back up. No problems with tracking. Then recreated first boot up by turning it off at the wall. No problems again. WHAT IS GOING ON? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!
