when I move my mouse quickly, I can still see multiple images of it where it was for the previous fraction of a second. It's not mouse trails, like the setting in windows, I have that turned all the way down.
It happens also when I scroll down quickly, I can see some content repeating. It's not nearly enough to be distracting, but it's *really* noticeable on the mouse.
So are my eyes just retaining the image (although I guess it would be a blur if that were the case) , or is the monitor really displaying the mouse like 7-8 times at once? What's it called and what exactly is happening?
Your eyes are retaining the image. Because the mouse is only in one exact place at a time, due to the 60hz refresh rate, you see trails of it existing here and there. If you had a 1000+hz display, this might go away.
