Indeed! I have been touting this for 2020 as I had been noticing a lot of low latency optimizations being in testing phases of 2019, it all got me curious as I've been on the latency warpath for a while now. Nvidia's LLM, AMD's equivalent. HAGS from Microsoft and other OS changes and improvements to their game mode. Their request in 2018 asking game devs to implement correct flip models for their games. Then we got Hall Effect keyboards commercialized to the mainstream through Steelseries and marketed as "low latency" from things such as the PCB, the keys mechanisms, setting actuation for raw human travel time latency improvement. The announcements of 360hz monitors in early 2020, NVIDIA's latency research/study in late 2019 to then be followed up with NVIDIA Reflex and one of the first massive-scale latency marketing operations.Chief Blur Buster wrote: ↑01 Oct 2020, 11:13But it's now 2020, and Razer is working with Microsoft (they confirmed to me).
There's many, many more things I have noticed that are leading up to this point, but it's making me very happy. 8k mice being introduced by non-mainstream companies pushed forward a lot of discussion about higher polling rates for mice and now we have something like Razer catch wind of it and attempt implementations. The good part about a lot of this, if something else in the system chain does not support X or Y, waiting for the support might take forever comparatively to innovators just pushing it and trying weird hacky methods to making things work. Now as you said, Razer are working with Microsoft to make this work smoother at an OS level.
I think with my limited understanding, the latency warpath will be going on by mainstream / big brands / companies for entire 2021-2022 and then from there I'm unsure what will happen. But with how much resources that seem to have been used in 2019/2020, I am simply estimating a 2 year timespan to justify the resources used. Excited to see some of the results from the mice later, thank you for sharing (even if that is probably marketing )
