Dressed to Kill: Razer Unveils Mouse with Third-Generation IR Sensor
Back in the days the importance of mouse performance for successful gaming was considered as greatly exaggerated, which was actually true: nobody needs a mouse with 2000dpi optical sensor to play Quake III Arena in 800x600 resolution. But nowadays gamers use large screens with 2560x1600 resolution and performance of pointing device clearly affects comfort even in Windows.
In order to satisfy demands of gamers and power users, Razer has unveiled its DeathAdder mouse, which uses the so-called infrared sensor and can boast with 1800dpi sensor resolution as well as improved accuracy thanks to 1000Hz UltraPolling technology and 1ms response time. Razer believes that its new mouse is 2.25 times faster compared to typical 800dpi optical pointing device.
The DeathAdder, just like all the previous-generation mice from Razer, is a wired device with rubber coating and very comfortable form. It remains to be seen whether the DeathAdder is better compared to Logitech’s wireless G7, but one of the things that Razer fans will definitely love is the form of the DeathAdder, which has not evolved much from Copperhead mouse.
Besides keyboards and mice Razer also showcased its Barracuda HP-1 gaming headphones also designed specifically for gamers.
