Unlike DPI, lower latency benefits everyone from casual to professional players by shaving off important milliseconds from the overall reaction time; and During our testing and development process with a large pool of competitive players and mouse enthusiasts, many reported significantly smoother and more responsive input when using the HyperPolling Technology featured in the new Viper 8KHz eSports gaming mouse."
