Re: Kickstarter screen - any good?

What tech? The one that looks LEAST like a scam is still claiming it's supposed to ship two years ago.

Re: Kickstarter screen - any good?

My rule for kickstarters is to make sure the funding goal is high enough to actually get the product manufactured. For example, if you took $35k pledges to design and build a car with a funding goal of 1M, that's a hard no. If you increased the funding goal to $1B, that's a much higher confidence, b...

Re: Would something like this work for me?

This will have no beneficial impact on any kind of lag.

If you want to know if it's effective for surge protection, you'll need to find a review that specializes in that type of device, with teardown and circuit analysis.

Re: I have the new Razer 8000 Hz prototype gaming mouse on my desk.

Hello, I just received my viper 8khz. It's configured at 8Khz but on testing sites such as: https://mouseinsider.com/mouse-polling-rate-checker/ I get max 5.6Khz and average 5Khz (doing circles). https://zowie.benq.com/zh-tw/support/mouse-rate-checker.html I get average 5Khz (doing circles). Is thi...

Re: DIY input lag tester.

I don't think I found any actual photodiode yet. i've ordered some stuff from aliexpress, but it still hasn't come :D There are numerous photodiodes here: https://www.digikey.com/en/products/filter/optical-sensors-photodiodes/543 This one may be suitable and is cheap: https://www.digikey.com/en/pro...

What was your game framerate? Can you post a link to the high speed video?

Re: I have the new Razer 8000 Hz prototype gaming mouse on my desk.

Sensor framerate and sensor read frequency are two different things. Framerate would be how often the sensor takes and processes an image of the mousepad, sensor read frequency is how often the microcontroller reads position data from the sensor. You could have the sensor framerate at 20khz and onl...

Re: Does triple buffering add input lag?

With cap no, without cap yes. Assuming you're talking about an implementation that does not drop frames when more than one frame is finished rendering at the buffer flip.
