Razer has launched a new edition of their ‘best gaming mouse in the world,’ as they call it, the DeathAdder Elite. It’s available now for preorder on Razer’s store, or you can grab it from Best Buy as early as Oct 2. The Elite gets a huge boost to its optical sensor that tracks 16,000 dots per inch and 450 inches per second. Put simply, the DeathAdder is better than ever at accurately interpreting your hand motions.
The mouse retains its iconic look, but Razer worked to improve the comfort with rubber side grips, a texturized scroll wheel, and center-positioned sensitivity buttons. The company is also bringing its Razer Mechanical Mouse Switches, which it co-developed with switch-design company Omrom, into the DeathAdder. This will give the mouse faster response times and more durability.
What’s more, the Razer DeathAdder Elite mouse has the highest measured resolution accuracy (RA) ever recorded in a gaming mouse at 99.4 percent. This makes the mouse fastest, most sensitive and most accurate gaming mouse available today.
This mouse works with seven independently programmable ‘Hyperesponse’ buttons as well as 1000 Hz Ultrapolling. There is a gold-plated USB connector as well, for whatever magical reason, and 2.1 m / 7 ft. braided fiber USB cable to connect to the user’s PC.
The Razer DeathAdder Elite mouse now has DPI buttons (for quick switching whilst in the game), as well as an improved scroll wheel along with more tactile surface. The size of the mouse comes in at 127 mm / 5 in. (Length) x 44 mm / 1.73 in. (Height) x 70 mm / 2.76 in. (Width). The weight is right around 105 g / 0.23 lbs.
