By using this simple eDPI calculator tool, you’ll be able to find your CS:GO eDPI (effective dots per inch). All it requires is some basic information to be entered in, and it’ll do all the hard calculations for you.
How to use this calculator
To use this calculator, you will only need to input two values: your in-game CS:GO sensitivity, and your mouse DPI. As soon as you enter those two values into our calculator, we will automatically calculate and display your true eDPI.
What is eDPI?
eDPI, or effective dots per inch, is a value which combines your game sensitivity with your mouse DPI to make a much easier way to compare sensitivity speeds with others. eDPI is basically your true sensitivity, meaning the higher the number, the faster the sensitivity speed. The same goes the other way, meaning the lower the number, the slower the sensitivity speed will be.
The reason why so many people nowadays are using eDPI to compare sensitivity speeds is because it’s simply easier and faster to compare using one whole value rather than two separate values.
Is eDPI different for every game?
eDPI is mostly different for every game. This means that you cannot compare your CS:GO eDPI, to let’s say your Valorant eDPI – they simply aren’t comparable.
In some cases it may be possible to compare eDPIs. Take CS:GO and Apex Legends as an example. They both use the same game engine and yaw value, so they are actually compatible. Although there are some instances like that, the majority of games have their own sens value which requires their own specific calculation.

Low Sens = 0-700 eDPI Medium Sens = 700-1200 eDPI High Sens = 1200+ eDPI
