This week Razer introduced the Razer Viper, a lightweight gaming mouse designed in collaboration with esports professionals.
Featuring Razer’s fastest switches to date. The new Optical Mouse Switches unitize new tech, an infrared light beam that passes through a shutter to fire an electrical signal to the computer. They offer three times the actuation speed of traditional mechanical mouse switches. Razer detailed “the switches respond instantaneously to every finger press, making sure every action is executed to the player’s intent.”
The Viper is the first Razer mouse to feature the Optical Mouse Switches (durable for up to 70 million clicks), paired with Razer’s 5G Optical Sensor (16,000 DPI native resolution, 99.4% resolution accuracy and tracking at 450 Inches Per Second (IPS) and Razer Speedflex Cable, the Razer Viper has been deigned for competitive play.
“The Razer Viper has been designed ground up in collaboration with some of Team Razer’s best esports athletes”, says Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s peripherals business unit. “With Optical Mouse Switches and Razer’s market-leading 5G sensor in an ambidextrous, lightweight mouse, the Viper delivers the high-performance precision and control needed to succeed in any of today’s competitive games.”
The Viper is also Razer’s lightest wired mouse ever, coming in at just 69g. “The lightweight design is achieved without the need of a skeletal shell, resulting in a solid, ambidextrous chassis that does not compromise on strength and durability. The Viper’s low-weight chassis design is built to meet the rigorous demands of esports competition.”
The Razer Viper is available now with a $79.99 USD MSRP. For more check out the official page over at Razer.
