Input Lag


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

I have a second pc i use along side my gaming pc for streams and youtube stuff. I am looking to clear space with using one mouse and keyboard for both.

Now i'v looked at Synergy and this seems perfect but i have a concern that it might cause some input lag. Now i play alot of competitive games so dont want anymore input lag than i already have.

Now my logic is that because the peripherals are plugged into the gaming machine directly to the pc then there shouldn't be any? but just wondered if you guys have any input?

Cheers

Are you running the games on the PC that the keyboard and mouse are connected to? If so, it should work fine as the mouse and keyboard are directly connected. Some users have reported issues when running games on the remote computer.

Yes, just running games on the Main PC with which has the mouse and keyboard plugged into. The remote computer will just be for streams and videos. 

 

So having Synergy doesn't create any extra input lag to the main pc with the peripherals connected?

That's right. On the main computer, your performance won't be affected. On the other computer, you shouldn't notice any lag either, but this depends on your network. However, as I mentioned you may have issues with running games on your second computer.
