In the end of the first paragraph under 8000 Hz polling rate testing there is humnans written.

I actually just got my Viper mini 2 weeks ago, because I don't really need a normal viper, and I won't be able to use a 8000 Hz polling rate as I'm on a 4570 with integrated graphics using a 60 Hz monitor, so I don't regret it.

This is just marketing twaddle from Razer. When even those gaming monitors with the least input lag, based on test figures from TFTCentral, still exhibit around 3 milliseconds lag compared to a CRT, no-one is going to see any real perceivable benefit from 8KHz polling.

LOL, law of diminishing returns means nothing to the marketing department! This is beyond imperceptible, 1000 times per second polling rate versus 8000? That's the difference between:

.001 seconds to .000125 seconds.

the human brain can't come close to comprehending that difference.

A 1,000 Hz polling rate means the mouse can send a report to your PC telling the machine of the mouse’s position as many as 1,000 times every second.
A mouse does not report its position. It reports its relative movement.

Because the standard USB protocol for mice uses movements relative to the previous report and USB device hardware often is queue-oriented, there can be added latency of up to a polling-cycle. It depends on the hardware and firmware in the mouse.
