What is Mouse Sensitivity (DPI)?
DPI stands for dots per linear inch. It’s a standard used to measure mouse sensitivity and generally expressed as the number of DPIs that a device can detect. Mouse Sensitivity is how much your mouse pointer responds to the movement.
Higher the Mouse Sensitivity or DPI, your mouse moves faster and covers a longer distance. Your mouse will be slower with the low sensitivity and covers shorter lengths but provides better mouse precision.
Some mouse models come along with a dedicated DPI button to instantly adjust your mouse sensitivity.
