Default Mouse rate

A mouse connected by USB maxes out at 125Hz sampling rate. A mouse connected by PS/2 maxes out at 200Hz (but defaults to 100Hz in Windows).

I set mine to 200Hz; gonna check if my aiming skills improved

Please use the attached tool to check your maximum mouse rate, and post it here. Also put your type of mouse and connection.

Amazing. The article I read must be outdated.

$10 Logitech optical mouse (PS/2). Works fine, though.

I also have some even cheaper USB optical mouse, I will test it in a minute.

I just connected my old optical USB, and it maxes out at 125Hz. So it seems the limit used to be 125Hz a few years ago.

I'm now gonna test it with USB>PS/2 adapter.
