Look at the specs of the sensor: Pixart SDNS-3988. It's supposed to have a resolution of 6400.

So, if the SDNS-3988 is being used then to reach 12000 DPI Corsair must have doubled the resolution by using a hack, which may cause the skipping of every second pixel.

That would be doable for a DPI above 6400, but below that there is no need to double it. I assume this can be fixed by a firmware or driver update.

Just an educated guess. I may be wrong, though.
