Raw mouse bypasses any OS or driver customizations and reads mouse movement directly from the hardware input. The other options are basic versions of what the OS or driver customizations would provide. Windows provides the acceleration and rate parts, while other drivers like Logitech for its mice, can provide resolution changes.

Acceleration: Speeds up the mouse the longer it's moving, reset when it stops.

Rate: Speed of mouse movement in milliseconds of how long it takes for the game to read the mouse position.

Resolution: Imagine the mouse movement in an invisible screen overlay. Increasing this value "zooms out" this overlay. The result is effectively a slower but more accurate mouse. This setting is very popular in shooting games, especially with mice that have a special button to switch between a normal setting and a sniper setting.
