We’re big Razer fans in the office, so when they release a mouse they call “the world’s most advanced gaming mouse,” we get a bit excited. The new Razer Mamba builds on the previous iteration with a more precise sensor and some sweet Adjustable Click Force Technology.

Found inside is the new 5G laser sensor, capable of tracking up to 16 000 DPI which is optimized for multi-display set-ups with ultra-high display resolutions. Razer believes the 5G laser sensor is the world’s most precise – with its ability to track up to 1 DPI increments (as opposed to the current industry standard of 50 DPI increments). The next generation gaming mouse sensor is also able to track lift-off cut-off distance as precise as 0.1 mm, reducing on-screen jitter so your aim stays on target even as you move.

In the past, gamers have had to adapt to a mouse’s click force or be compelled to search through a multitude of mice and switches to find the perfect mouse button click force. With the new Adjustable Click Force Technology found on the Mamba, instead of having to adapt to a mouse’s set click force, this feature allows gamers to freely adjust the level of click force needed to activate the left and right mouse buttons. This ranges from distinct clicks for high accuracy actions such as sniping in FPS games to lighter presses for rapid fire action needed for MOBA games. This Adjustable Click Force Technology is capable of up to 504° turn, providing users with a total of 14 distinct choices to set their signature click feel for a more personalized gameplay.

 “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 Mamba Tournament Edition

Also launching today is the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition wired gaming mouse, specifically designed for eSports athletes. Featuring the same precise gaming mouse sensor, ergonomic form factor, and advanced Chroma customizable lighting as the wireless Razer Mamba, Razer notes that the Mamba Tournament Edition embodies the absolute best elements an eSports athlete needs to dominate in any tournament. 

Both new mice join the Razer Chroma line of devices, which includes an array of mice, keyboards and a headset. Each Chroma enabled product comes with the option of 16.8 million customizable colours and a range of effects through Razer’s cloud-based hardware configurator, Razer Synapse. Razer Synapse also allows the Razer Mamba and Razer Mamba TE to sync lighting colours and effects with other Chroma enabled devices.

Additionally, the publicly available Razer Chroma SDK allows game developers worldwide to directly interact with Chroma enabled devices, displaying lighting effects directly on the peripherals for a more immersive experience to gameplay.  

There is no word yet on a local release date or price, but the new Mamba will strike come Q3 in the States at $150 and $90 for the Tournament Edition.
