Hey. Just got a computer with USB 3.0 slots. I have a mouse that was normally in a USB 2.0. If I plug it into a 3.0 slot, will it get faster / more DPI and better sensitivity due to more bandwidth?

I sincerely hope that you're trolling because that's a really stupid question.
How can a port change mouse sensor quality?

Yes it will. Mice were really bottlenecked by USB 2.0 so you should see a massive improvement similar to going from a 5400rpm drive to a SSD.

I swear.
