Who needs 24k DPI? Serious question as I'm no specialist when it comes to mice, but from my understanding: the higher the DPI = the faster your cursor moves.
So with 24k DPI: 1cm of movement ~ cursor moves from the left corner to the right on a dual 1080p screen setup...


My MX518 was set to 800 DPI and I don't actually know what my current G400's settings are, but my aim is quite on point in shooters and my movements aren't huge/long at all. So I don't understand the need for such high DPI numbers. If anything, you're getting WAY more inaccurate, although you have to move less to spin around in games. I always say that when it comes to keyboards and mice, it's a decision purely based on what you're used to.


So PLEASE, can someone enlighten me? My "knowledge" can't be correct, because if it was, these products wouldn't exist, right?

The simple answer is high screen resolutions. 4K screens are pretty big, and higher DPIs can be handy if you have a multi-screen 1440p setup like myself. It also depends on how sensitive you want your mouse.

My mouse is 12000 dpi and I use it for my dual 1440p (+1x 1080p up top) screen setup. I don't really feel the need to go higher than that, but I wouldn't want to go much lower.

As far as gaming goes, the ability to do a quick 180 turn is helpful in some competitive shooters. It really depends how much you care about factors like that.

As always: quick and comprehensive! Thanks for that! I've never left the realms of 1080p, but I do see this being the major factor. So with higher resolutions you have to set a higher DPI value if you want to keep your muscle memory - if we keep it gaming related. Makes sense now.

If you play any shooter at 24k effective DPI you're an absolute madman.

Yeah, I don't think I would ever get used to it. I'm not a competitive gamer though. give me a good story or a strategy game where I can make my own (Civ, Total War, Sins of a Solar Empire etc). They don't need insane DPIs.

Yeah, and while pros tend to use lower sensitivity for CS:GO than other competitive shooters, it's not completely in its own league. There like 90% of the players use sens in the range of 800-1200. And it seems that high sens gaming can cause wrist problems and aiming by moving your whole arm is less strenuous in the long run.

Totally unrelated to this thread, but I have heard that some Starcraft pros get what is known as "Terran wrist explosion syndrome" in the long run. Pro gaming can take its toll.

Id love to see csgo spray control @24k. I can go up to 12k on my g502 but never have I used over 1600. Also imagine trying to resize excel cells with this at 24k, youll go from 64 pixels to 10000 and never be able to get it back below 100
