    Does anyone know the highest baud rate possible with WS2801 and Arduino nano?
    Currently i have it running at 115200

    TY

    It depends on the sketch, how it's written, and how often you are trying to update it.

    I've had it working at 500k with some success.

    Is there much point going faster ?
    100 LEDs = 300 bytes = 3000 bits

    500/3 = 166 frames per second
