When playing PC games some go to extreme lengths to ensure that they have the edge over their fellow competitors, over the years gaming mice have came on leaps and bounds, today we will introduce you to the new Razer Orochi Black Chrome Edition.
This new gaming mouse allows you to use Bluetooth 2.0 for wireless connectivity or a USB port, if you use the mouse wirelessly it will allow sensitivity of up to 2000DPI, 125Hz polling and an 8ms response time, gamers may want to plug in this mouse via the detachable USB cable, this gives the mouse up to 4000DPI sensitivity, 1000Hz Ultrapolling and a 1ms response time. One slight limitation is the fact that the USB cord is just three feet long.
In terms of design you can see some promotional photos here, it has a very sleek and futuristic look, we are told that it uses a gold-plated USB connector and a braided micro-USB cord, this suggests that Razer has paid lots of attention to detail. The mouse itself measures in at 99mm x 67.8mm x 35mm.
Razer say that to ensure long battery life you need to use high-performance batteries and you should turn the Orochi mouse off when you are not using it, this suggests that it does not come with rechargeable batteries which charge via the supplied USB cord, it may also mean that there is no built-in standby feature. Razer also tells us that its Bluetooth connectivity will be compatible with “most laptops”, this means that it does not come with a Bluetooth dongle and also may mean that is designed for gamers on the go apposed to desktop PC gamers.
You can check out the official product overview (here), it claims that its 3G laser sensor will keep track of movements 5 times faster than what a standard 800dpi optical sensor can, if you are worried about compatibility it will run on Windows 7, Vista and XP or Max OS X 10.4 or later.
Have you been won over by the Razer Orochi Black Chrome Edition gaming mouse? If so, you can buy it from Razer’s website here for $79.99, we think that the time is right to buy a decent mouse as Modern Warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 are being released before the year is out.
