What do my mouse settings equal to dpi?

so wrong.. 1x just means your sensitivity stays the same. Do you know how noticeable 6000 dpi would be to 1000?
What? You either misread what I said or what the op is saying.

I don´t really think there is a way to transfer those settings into an accurate Dpi measure, and if there is, why would you care?. If someone asks you you say you run 1000dpi with 6 osu sens, which is ridiculous by the way. I don´t really see the point in getting your question answered but if you still want an answer lets say you got 6000 dpi there. Anyway just play the game.

Btw, you should change that osu sensitivity ASAP

What was unclear about my answer?

To my knowledge: You use 1000dpi and x1 in osu!, you get 1000dpi. You use 1000dpi and x6 in osu!, you get 6000dpi. I'm pretty sure your "true" dpi is just the two multiplied together. I did some quick testing and 1000dpi with x6 in osu! feels the same as 6000dpi using the mouses softwarre.

Raw input means the game bypasses windows settings, so your 11/11 windows multiplier becomes irrelevant. It defaults to the middle, 6/11. It doesn't matter what your windows multiplier is if you are using raw input.

So to answer your question:
Mouse DPI: 1000
Windows Multiplier: 11/11
osu! Multiplier: 6x
Raw input: On

Will be the same as using 6000dpi, x1 in osu! and 6/11 windows multiplier.

Ahh, okay, thanks man!

No it's not, it's still way to slow.

It shouldn't be. It probably takes me 4cm~ to move the entire length of my 1080p screen at that dpi.

I asked before, do you have a reasonable mousepad? And does the mouse move smoothly and linearly or does it randomly skip/jump?

maybe your polling rate/response isn't high enough
i forgot about ie3.0 pros being able to play with 125hz polling rate
you are using a wireless mouse after all lol

High sensitivity gets a bad rep for a reason. You shouldn't be playing with 6000 effective dpi.

i bet u are super precise.

Just want to point out a couple things. First,there is no superior dpi. People should play at the dpi that is natural to them, and others shouldn't impose ridiculous rules like X dpi = best or Y dpi sucks. Second, adjusting pointer speed causes cursor to skip pixels, at x6 the cursor skips 5 pixels to arrive on the 6th one -- I'm not sure if this is the same for osu! but this is how it is for most software.

@OP: In any case you're better off investing in a native 6000dpi mouse, unfortunately I don't think there are any optical mice that exist with that dpi, and even then it would cost about as much as a tablet. You can get good with your current setup, but it will take wayyyyyy too long to master unnatural cursor movement unless you're a doomsday.

Sorry to necro but optical mice with 6000 dpi native would be the:
-Razer Deathadder 2013
-Steelseries Rival
-Logitech G502 (Not exactly sure if optical or not but people seem to say it is)
