DP
With default DPI levels set at 1100,
2600, 3800 and 5600; you can manually
fine tune each DPI by either adjusting
the DPI slider or through text definition in
the X and Y DPI input box. To suit your
gaming environment X & Y can be
adjusted independently.
USB Report Rate
%

The USB report rate can be set to 100Hz,
111Hz, 125Hz, 142Hz, 166Hz, 200Hz,
250Hz, 333Hz, 500Hz, and or 1000Hz.
The higher the USB report rate the more
times the computer communicates with
the mouse with information, at a high dpi
resolution we suggest setting the report
rate at 1000Hz.
Adjust windows pointer sensitivity here
from slow to fast. We recommend
keeping the sensitivity level in the
middle under regular usage, and tuning
the sensitivity slower while operating
under a high DPI setting such as
5600DPI.
Double Click Speed
The double-click response slider area
allows you to adjust your double-click
speed from slow to fast. Essentially slow
means a longer interval between each
click, and fast as a shorter interval
between each clicks.
Button Response Time
Here users are allowed to adjust button
response time from 250 microseconds
to 32 milliseconds.
