What is DPI ?
If you are thinking of buying a new mouse for your computer, one of the most common technical features you will find is DPI - a tool used to measure the sensitivity of this accessory. It's not always clear how DPI can impact mouse performance, but if you usually play on your computer or use editing programs, you should update this default.
DPI means, in English, “Dots Per Inch”. Translating this expression into Portuguese, the acronym means Dots Per Inch. This value demonstrates the number of dots that are present in an inch, which corresponds to 2.54cm. DPI affects mouse movement sensitivity. That is, the greater this value, the greater the precision of the movement and the faster the speed of the pointer.
To adjust this value, simply access the Windows search bar and type “Mouse”. Then just press the button that says “Pointer options” and set the speed according to the type of use. We suggest below the number of DPIs you should choose according to the use you make of the mouse and still some models of mouse from our store:
