New Steelseries mouse coming... - Page 2

post #11 of 105
DA/Abyssus sensor in Xai shell.

Make it happen and no one will ever need to buy another mouse ever.

I would rather have the 3080 from the mx518 than the 3090. Just have an option to turn off prediction and make it 1000hz and it would be perfect. The 3090 is a good sensor but it's malfunction speed is just low enough where it can be a problem for low sensitivity players.

I would buy it with either one though. The Xai body with a good optical sensor would be amazing. Just get rid of the buttons on the right side. Exactly what the Xai should have been in the first place.

The prediction from the 3080 is built into the sensor itself, so it's impossible to turn it off. Terrible sensor really.

Wouldn't it be possible to disable it if the mouse had onboard memory?

Post your predications.
The wheel and DPI button could just be white and reflecting the flash from the camera taking the picture

I also quite enjoy the Xai's shape, its perhaps the most ambiguous grip design I've ever experience in a mouse which makes it useable for just about anyone regardless of their grip style. Of course that also means its likely not perfect for any one grip.

And as a finger gripper I have to say the Xai was a breath of fresh air after Razer and just about everyone else went completely ergo crazy.

This looks like an improved Xai. Makes me sad that I just bought one.

Did I miss something or is there or do ppl suddenly like the Abyssus.
Strange, It look sexy like most razer products but I cant imagine myself using it.

This is make or break for SS. They better impress or else they lose all street cred.

I dont find the Xai an ideal shape since Im a palm grip and sometimes take a while to get my grip on it. My favorite mouse shape was the ms3.0 so comfy if only it was made of higher quality.

They like the sensor. The mouse, not so much.

It's hard coded into the sensor SROM.

The sensor is far from terrible though... WMO1.1a just thinks it sucks because none of his favorite quake players use the 518

@ steelseries mouse.

They would be stupid not to throw in the ADNS-3090.

If only they would work on their global warranty policy. 1 year isn't enough for me if the mouse itself is going to cost $60+ USD.

I don't know where you get this from but the avago 3080 has a much lower malfunction speed and most importantly perfect control speed than the new avago 3090 which is above 4/ms in malfunction speed and about 4/ms in perfect control speed

And anyone moving their mouse faster than 4/ms is not human

In addition the avago 3080 has prediction that cant be turned off
