What is DPI?
DPI is an acronym related to the world of technology, which means Dots Per Inch, a concept also known by the acronym PPP. It represents the number of dots that can be found in an inch of a particular image. It is common for people to refer to DPI as image resolution.
The DPI concept refers to the number of dots in one inch (2.54 cm) of images that have been reproduced on some type of material (paper, for example) through a printer. Theoretically, the points of an image displayed on a video monitor consist of PPI ( pixels per inch), but device manufacturers and users use the DPI designation for printed images or monitors.
In this case DPI also means Points per Inch, but consists of the pattern that measures the sensitivity of optical mice. For regular use of a mouse, high DPI is not required. However, for people who use the mouse in games or for people who work with computer programs in the graphics area, a high DPI is recommended because it implies a greater precision.
On a 1600 DPI mouse, an inch is divided into 1600 parts, increasing sensitivity and accuracy, and even more subtle movements are detected. Many mice have buttons that instantly adjust IPRs.
