Q: What is Drift Control and how does it affect accuracy?
A: Drift control is a common prediction mechanism in mouse sensors that is designed to assist users in drawing straight lines vertically/horizontally in graphical and work applications. Such sensors predict when a straight line is being drawn and corrects any movement that deviates from that straight line, rather than follow the user’s exact movements. This means a downward swipe of 5 degrees can be corrected into a completely horizontal line, causing a gamer to miss his target.
For absolute freedom of movement, the Razer Abyssus is engineered with no drift control - giving gamers the ability to translate their exact mouse movements into in game frags without interference from prediction mechanisms that results in accuracy loss.
