Razer has just updated their top-of-the-line Mamba gaming mouse with several new features and design improvements. The Mamba was initially released back in 2009 with an optical sensor and DPI of 5600. It got several updates since then with an incremental one in 2012, when Razer updated the sensor to a 4G dual laser one with 6400 DPI. Rest of it, pretty much stayed the same. However, now its getting a major revamp and Razer is now calling it the new Mamba; the most advanced gaming mouse in the world.
The new Mamba comes with the most advanced 5G laser sensor which offers 16,000 DPI. This is optimal for ultra high resolution and multi display setups. Furthermore, the new sensor offer DPI increments of as low as 1 which provides way more freedom as compared to industry standard of 50 DPI increments. Next up, the new Mamba comes with Adjustable Click Force Technology; this allows users to adjust the level of click force needed to activate the button. This feature is only available for left and right mouse buttons. Razer’s system allows users to select from 14 different click force options. The Adjustable Click Force Technology brings the freedom of choice to mouse that gamers usually get with mechanical keyboards.
“The original Razer Mamba was launched six years ago and, even today, is the gold standard for a wireless gaming grade mouse,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “Our enhancements to the Razer Mamba with the most precise laser sensor and the revolutionary Adjustable Click Force Technology, together with the industry leading gaming grade wired/wireless technology, leave us ahead of the curve when it comes to gaming mice.”
Razer is launching two versions of the new Mamba. The normal one is wireless and has up to 20 hours of battery life. The Tournament edition is the wired version as its specifically designed for professional gamers. Both the versions come with 16.8 million color options thanks to Razer’s Chroma system. In addition to all these features, the new Razer Mamba comes with 9 programmable buttons including the tilt-click scroll wheel.
The new Razer Mamba will hit the markets later this year at price of US $89 for the wired Tournament version and US $149 for the wireless version.
