So I usually play csgo on a 24inch 1920x1080 144hz monitor with windows 10 installed with my mouse at 3200dpi (very low ingame sens and raw input on). When I swapped to my 17.5 inch laptop with a 1600x900 60hz display running windows 7 I felt like the sensitivity was lower on the laptopalthough according to viewspeed calculator the sens should remain the same across the two.

My mouse is an ec2-a so there are no drivers needed so no customisation there.

 

Is there a known issue with dpi across operating systems being inconsistent? Does screen size affect the sens across native resolutions on different sized monitors? Or is all this inside my head? 

 

Any help on this would be amazing!

If you are sitting at the same distance away from both a 24 and a 17.5 inch screen, the 24 Inch will feel much faster, because there is more distance objects on the Image will move, even tho the fov, aspect ratio and sense are the same.

 

Edit: And for me 60Hz always feels slower than 144hz, even when the sensitivity is the same

It should technically be identical, but, but as WhoCares point out factors like screen size and distance may affect the perceived sensitivity.

 

As with 60Hz vs 144Hz, 144Hz will feel snappier and more responsive, although they are exactly the same (unless the game is affected by framerate),

Thanks very much guys! Makes a lot of sense!

So we should strap a stick between our head and the monitor and not move the whole time? hehe
