CS:GO eDPI calculator
By using this eDPI calculator you can find your effective dots per inch in CS:GO. Match your sensitivity in for better performance!
Effective DPI calculator
Enter your DPI and sensitivity settings into the calculator to determine CS:GO eDPI. eDPI means Effective DPI or effective-dots-per-inch.
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.

You can find and change your sensitivity in CS:GO settings, or by typing
sensitivity into your CS:GO developer console.
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 by typing
m_rawinput "1" into your developer console in CS:GO.
"1" means on,
"0" means off.
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 is eDPI?
eDPI stands for effective-dots-per-inch and is calculated by taking your mouse DPI and multiplying it with your CS:GO game sensitivity. You can calculate eDPI yourself, or let our calculator help you!
Why to use eDPI?
Different players use different mouse DPI, which creates a problem when choosing your CS:GO sensitivity. eDPI calculator solves this problem by making comparable values that work on all computers with different settings.
How calculator calculates the eDPI?
To calculate eDPI, multiply your DPI with your in-game sensitivity. So calculating eDPI is easy with the following formula. You can calculate eDPI manually or then use the calculator on this page.
eDPI = DPI * CS:GO sensitivity
eDPI vs sensitivity
The reason people use eDPI is used instead of just using sensitivity is that the real sensitivity is affected by the size of the screen. You can set your sensitivity to the same setting, but on two different monitors the mouse will move with two different speeds depending on the size of the monitor.
Does eDPI calculator work for other games?
Yes, our eDPI calculator works on all videogames: CS:GO, Fortnite, Valorant, and so on.
