When we buy a gaming mouse, we sometimes see a parameter called polling rate, what does this parameter mean, is it the same as DPI?

What is the mouse polling rate?

The mouse polling rate, also known as the mouse refresh rate, refers to the data transmission frequency between the mouse micro control unit and the computer, in Hz. Common polling rates are 125Hz, 250Hz, 500Hz and 1000Hz. Then, what does these polling rates mean?

The polling rate means how often the mouse refreshes its position per second, 125Hz means your mouse transmits information about its position change to the computer 125 times per second, 1000Hz means your mouse transmits information to the computer 1000 times per second information about its position change.
The relationship between mouse polling rate and refresh delay
125Hz     8ms
250Hz    4ms
500Hz    2ms
1000Hz  1ms

What is the best mouse polling rate for gaming?

The best mouse polling rate for playing games is 500-1000Hz. At present, most mouse polling rates are between 125Hz and 1000Hz, and some mice have achieved polling rates of 8000Hz and 9000Hz. Is it necessary to achieve such a high polling rate?

Generally speaking, the higher the polling rate of the mouse, the more frequently the data is transmitted to and from the computer, and the more accurate the mouse movement will be. But higher polling rates place more burden on the CPU, although these are insignificant for most computer processors today. In some cases, too high a polling rate will bring delays, such as your processor cannot handle such a high-intensity data exchange. On the other hand, a high polling rate will lead to higher power consumption, and for wireless mice, this will make your mouse lose power faster. Many players wireless mouse players will adjust the mouse’s polling rate to around 500 to save power. Of course, the mouse polling rate is too low, such as 125Hz, for many players, there will be obvious frame drop phenomenon, because the mouse Mei 8MS transmits a message and cannot completely capture your mouse when moving at a high speed. movement track.

There is another suggestion that the refresh rate of the mouse is recommended to be higher than the refresh rate of the monitor, otherwise you may experience noticeable stuttering or lag.

500Hz VS 1000Hz polling rate
For the refresh rate of 500Hz and 1000Hz, one refresh time is 2ms, and the other refresh time is 1ms. For most FPS games, the refresh rate of 500Hz is completely sufficient. The difference between them is basically only the machine itself. Most players don’t feel the difference at all. Many professional players have a mouse refresh rate of 500Hz. If you’re really very sensitive, well, you might be fine with 1000Hz, and the difference between the two refresh rate mice isn’t that big.
