SteelSeries Rival 500 Gaming Mouse With Multi-Buttons

SteelSeries Rival 500 Gaming Mouse is the first true multi-button mouse engineered to maximize gaming efficiency. SteelSeries recently announced the availability of this gaming mouse. “We created a MOBA/MMO mouse that fits your hand and not the other way around,” said Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO.


The Rival 500 is a bit wider than your usual mouse. There were many buttons on the mouse, the top of the mouse has standard left and right mouse buttons with a scroll wheel. There were total 15 buttons on the mouse.  Each button is rated for 30 million clicks, it also features an optical PixArt PMW3360 sensor with an adjustable CPI (100 to 16,000), 50g acceleration, 1ms polling rate (1,000Hz). It also has 1:1 tracking accuracy and customizable RGB lighting.

The Rival 500 also supports Gamesense which provides tactile feedback based on events that happen in the game. SteelSeries said it remained the traditional multi-button grid layout of most mice by incorporating natural hand movement into the design of the Riva; 500. More specifically, it replaced the squeezed buttons of a grid format with what it calls a “Next-Gen” side button layout that’s supposed to make identifying, clicking, and combo clicking precise and easy.

SteelSeries says that it carefully placed the alerts in the center of the mouse so that you will feel them in your pal, without them affecting the mouse’s tracking.
