Yes, I know, but I don't care. It's just about smoothness in single player games, not competitive ones. And I'm not trying to set it at 125Hz, but rather half of it (62.5Hz), and then setting this monitor to 62.5Hz as well. Works like a charm with an old PS/2 mouse on WinXP, but I need it on Win7 and I need the Logitech software package to work as well, which it doesn't when the mouse is on PS/2.bumbeen wrote: ↑20 May 2023, 22:55any type of mouse smoothing interpolation implies adding a delay. at 125hz that's a full 8ms. any game will be better off with a higher polling rate as the game will have more recent information to incorporate into the next drawn frame. At 125hz, sometimes the mouse input will occur right at the perfect moment to give the game the latest data, but sometimes it will occur at the worst possible time and barely miss, meaning the frame is 8ms behind. assuming perfect frame timing, at 60fps, the next frame will suddenly have mouse input just before the frame so the mouse will suddenly teleport 8ms ahead of where it was on the previous frame. at 1000hz, the mouse will always provide input <2ms from frame generation. It seems like the focus should be on trying to determine why you see this 1000hz microstuttering and solving that rather than adding an additional 8ms of delay on top of the already 8ms of delay that happens intermittently at 125hz
It's always at 1000Hz, basically a flat line in mouse tester, but it's not smooth enough. I'm surprised so many people can't seem to notice that 1000Hz is not entirely smooth @60Hz (and even @50Hz due to variance). It's pretty easy to spot when you know what to look for, at least to my eyes. I tried out more than just a handful of mice (mouses?), pads, monitors and operating systems, also on many of my friends' systems, but it's always the same. 1000Hz looks microstuttery. It's subtle, but enough to completely and utterly grind my gears. 500Hz makes it worse, 2000Hz makes it better, but anything over 1000Hz won't work on Win7.
So I just want to smooth out mouse movements on this system either by using a piece of software that apparently doesn't exist, or by lowering the polling rate to 62.5Hz which I'm unable to do.
