Q1.What is polling rate?
A: Polling Rate refers to the frequency at which the keyboard sends data to the computer per second. The higher the value of "Polling Rate", the faster the response speed of the key feedback. Generally, 1000Hz is suitable for most people, but for those who play shooting or action games, a higher "Polling Rate" can be selected to increase response speed.
(For example, an 8000Hz polling rate provides a 0.125ms response time (1/8000=0.125ms), which is faster, while a 1000Hz polling rate requires a 1ms response time (1/1000=1ms), which is slower.)


Q2.What is the polling rate of Armory Crate for each mode of ROG Chakram X?
A:USB wired mode:the polling rate can be set within the range of 250Hz to 8000Hz.
