Test using Mouse tester

if it still shows the same issue try using hidusbf to se it to 8K and check after in mouse tester to see if it worked

Have you tried increasing DPI concurrently with decreasing Windows Sensitivity? This allows to go higher in polling rate.

Does this work for every kind of mouse?

As far as I know, yes, there is no reason for this to not hold true for other high polling rate mice. If you try measuring your polling rate through the website https://devicetests.com/mouse-rate-test, if your DPI is low, even if you swipe fast, you won't reach as high polling rates as when you increase DPI and decrease Windows sensitivity accordingly.
