EDPI Calculator

With this eDPI calculator you will find out the effective dots per inch in Valorant, CS:GO, or in any other videogame!

DPI

DPI stands for dots per inch, referring to how a computer mouse measures physical distance. The more technically accurate phrase is actually CPI, or counts per inch, as dots are not actually used as part of the process. However, DPI is the abbreviation you’re more likely to encounter when comparing options, so we’ll be using that going forward.

Sensitivity

You can find and change your sensitivity e.g. in CS:GO settings, or by typing sensitivity into your CS:GO developer console.

CS:GO raw_input

m_raw_input 0
m_raw_input 1
TL;DR: basically, if you have your windows mouse settings at 6/11 and smoothing off raw input will not effect your sensitivity at all. What it will effect are "feel", which honestly might be a placebo. I recommend trying both and just using what you feel best from a blind test (have someone else change the settings for you and don't look at them)

You can change this setting by typing m_rawinput "1" into your developer console in CS:GO. "1" means on, "0" means off.

Windows Sensitivity

Is between 1 and 11
Applies only if m_rawinput is off.
Can be found and changed by pressing Windows + R and typing main.cpl. Run the script and click on Pointer options tab.

What DPI means?
DPI means dots per inch. DPI tells that how many dots or pixels your cursor moves on your screen when you move your mouse one inch (2.5cm). The DPI setting can be changed from mouse software or from the DPI button in the mouse, especially if you have a gaming mouse. Changing your DPI setting changes the setting on games, browser and on desktop. Gaming mouses usually have DPI from 400 to 2000, but usually professional gamers use DPI setting that is somewhere between 400 and 1200. After this they adjust the sensitivity on the game of their choice.
What sensitivity means?
Sensitivity is also related to the movement of the mouse. You can adjust your mouse sensitivity from the game you are playing, but also from Windows mouse settings. These two are two different settings.
