The Z does not report @1000Hz?

Question

I found something weird...

https://zowie.benq.com/en/support/mouse-rate-checker.html

Using this site as a "rate checker" between my Logitech G700, G900, MX Master, and The Z. Both Logitech G700 and G900 reports very close to 1000Hz (around 900+ Hz), the MX Master reports around 120 Hz up to 126Hz. The Z reports around 700 Hz (-ish). All mouse(s) connected to the same USB hub, on the same port of my Mac. Why is that?

Damir.

From another thread reguearding the same issue from issues and bug reports section:

The Z's USB update rate is 1000Hz, and its optical sensor is also capable of a consistent 1ms response time. However, unlike most other mice there is a lot more going on in the Z’s firmware than just optical sensor reporting and handling of a few button inputs. So the overall report rate will depend on what else the Z’s firmware is processing. For example OLED display modes like “Tilt Angles” and “Deep Click Forces” which are updated dynamically will have an effect on the report rate (noticeable to a rate checking tool, though probably not to most users). Firmware updates since the Z’s initial release have also affected the Z's report rate. With some updates having a performance cost, and others including optimizations to counteract this.

We are aware that the Z’s report rate can be lower than 1000Hz, and keeping it as close to 1000Hz as possible is important to us. Though, currently our top priorities are adding long requested features. If the community disagrees we can re-evaluate this, and move further optimizations above other planned feature updates and fixes.


This is obviously not a solution to the above, but as the question was raised by @gasknr, a polling rate cap option will be available in an upcoming driver/firmware release. Not the next one (expected to be out within the fortnight), but the one after that.
