Hi there guys, This is something I've wondered about for awhile now, but I haven't been able to track down a clear cut answer on this. My mouse supports 125, 500, and 1000 Hz polling rates. Based on what I've read, as you raise the polling rate, the CPU has to do more work to keep track of the mouse position which can, in theory, put a bit more strain on your CPU usage and therefore cause you to be CPU limited at least a few fps lower than you would be at, say, a 500 Hz polling rate. Now, some people claim this is no longer an issue and that modern hardware can handle 1000 Hz polling rate just fine with none to virtually no issues at all -- in other words, that any tax on a modern CPU should be negligible. On the other hand, other people seem to claim that polling your mouse an extra 500 times per second is non-trivial and may cost you some frames/CPU bottleneck you a bit sooner where 500 Hz would be a better compromise in terms of responsiveness and performance/CPU strain. What's the true answer here? Suppose one has hardware that's mid-range from a few years back. A GTX 770 / midrange i-7 from 2014 or so then for our example spec. Would 500 Hz or 1000 Hz polling rate be the optimal way to go? Thanks for your time, I appreciate it.
