This week Razer announced a new gaming mouse that they claim to be “the world’s most advanced wireless gaming mouse”.
It’s called the Lancehead and features Razer’s proprietary Adaptive Frequency Technology for 100% transmission quality according to the company, as well as constant scans of the frequency channels to check for interference.
It can then use this data to automatically switch the frequency to ensure your mouse remains lag-free.
To top that off, it also has “the world’s most precise laser gaming sensor”, the 5G laser sensor from Razer, which provides 16,000 DPI and 2,150 Inches per Second (IPS) tracking. It also comes with 50G acceleration to ensure precise tracking.
Of course, it also uses Razer’s Synapse software to allow you to customize how the mouse works and set the lighting.
There will also be a wired version of this new mouse, called the Lancehead Tournament Edition, it increases the IPS tracking speed to 450.
