RESPONSIVENESS WITHOUT RIVAL

In-game performance is a combination of man and machine. And to game as best as humanly possible, your gear shouldn’t be what defines your limits. With Razer HyperPolling Technology, we’re raising the standards of what true gaming responsiveness should be.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND ITS SPEED

By utilizing a high-speed USB microcontroller, Razer HyperPolling Technology surpasses the industry standard of 1000 Hz with a true 8000 Hz polling rate—which is the rate at which your device reports to your PC. With the ability to send up to 8 times more data in a second, this effectively reduces delay from 1 to 1/8th of a millisecond.

SMOOTHER, CRISPER CURSOR MOVEMENT

A true 8000 Hz polling rate becomes more important with high refresh rate monitors, as it’s able to send more current data to match the display’s faster frequency. Mice with lower polling rates are less likely to keep up, which can result in annoying micro-stutters.

A FRAME-BY-FRAME BREAKDOWN

Because Razer HyperPolling Technology provides up to 8 times more frequent data reports per second, the delay between its latest report and your monitor’s frame rendering is much less compared to that of a 1000 Hz polling rate, resulting in smoother and more up-to-date cursor positions.

Conversely, lower polling rates will have longer delays which can introduce micro-stutters or sudden jumps in your cursor position, making your mouse movement choppy.

BEST-IN-CLASS CONSISTENCY

Razer HyperPolling Technology not only provides the fastest click latency, but also keeps the click-to-click variance to an absolute minimum—making it superior to other leading gaming technologies.
To help you perform like a pro and play with the lowest latency possible, the reduction of polling delay is one important part of a larger equation: peripheral latency.

POLLING DELAY: PART OF THE BIGGER PICTURE

Peripheral latency is the time it takes for your device to process your input and send that information to your PC. The longer the delay, the further you stray from a 1-to-1 translation of your actions happening in-game.

WHY DOES PERIPHERAL LATENCY MATTER?

Every minute latency reduction can be the difference you need to pull off a clutch play and win the round. Higher latency often results in lower precision, and in game genres such as FPS where reaction and aim are paramount, it can negatively impact your game in ways such as:

SLUGGISH AIM

Your mouse might have already moved, but your aim on screen feels delayed.

OUT-OF-SYNC SHOTS

Shooting doesn’t feel snappy and doesn’t tally with the actual mouse click.

ADVANTAGE THAT ACTUALLY MATTERS

Unlike the usual chase for higher DPI, we believe in giving gamers an actual advantage. If it truly had any practical applications in gaming, then the highest DPI settings would be used by every esports player.

Latency is a universal issue that affects all gamers, and Razer HyperPolling Technology is an innovation everyone can gain from, regardless of the way you play. As validated through blind tests, many competitive players have noticed a significantly smoother and more responsive gaming experience—a benefit which can be appreciated by all.
