Overclocking Mice

Filed under: Uncategorized — doctorfeelgood @ 9:26 am

OK, I saw this on Slashdot.  But I never thought of overclocking a mouse.  Apparently, windows drives the USB ports at 125Hz.  Changing this with a shareware application makes the Logictech MX300, which is not a super-high-end mouse, near thetop.  Go figure.  The article also nicely explains how mouse speed affects gaming and how laser mice aren’t necessarily better than LED mice.  Too bad my MX1000 isn’t reviewed . . . poo.  Although I do own a Microsoft Optical Mouse 1.1 and it is benchmarked.  They run about $12 now.
