Resolution != acceleration

Many mice provide a button to control the resolution, for logitech devices there's and the synclient should be able to do this for synaptics touchpads.

To set mouse acceleration and threshold:
    xset m [acc_mult[/acc_div] [thr]]    m default

ie. eg. "xset m 3 8" or "xset m 1 0"
