In this era of Pubg and Fortnite, second’s of advantage can determine your faith. Keeping this in mind Razer has launched it’s first optical switch mouse “viper” on 2nd August. The company claims that with this mouse every click you make actuates at the speed of light. The price of this mouse is 80$.
The company is also partnering with CS: GO champion Epitacio “TACO” de Melo. TACO stated that as soon as he laid his eye on the mouse, he liked it. The shape was perfect for him, the click of the switch felt a lot better, and the cable is nice and flexible.
Advantages and comparison of Viper:
The “Viper” is very lean in terms of design, which makes it easy to handle. The optical switch technology gives it an advantage over the traditional mice. The mechanical switch mice, use a metal contact to send the signal, which can create a bounce effect. The optical mouse switch uses Infrared Beam to register a click, hence avoiding bounce effect. The textured button that switches DPI is on the bottom of the mouse, which is ideal for professional gamers.
