EVGA Torq X10 announced as carbon fibre gaming mouse

The EVGA Torq X10

Hot on the heels of entering the PC case market with its Hadron Air, EVGA has now entered the gaming mouse market with the EVGA Torq X10.

Known for being a premium brand, EVGA has unsurprisingly taken a premium approach to its new mouse, using carbon fibre to form its chassis. It also boasts a 6ft silver coated USB cable, a metal base and Omron switches rated to 20million actuations. Oh, and there's an 8,200 DPI laser sensor packed in their too.

Continuing its quest to include every possible feature the size of the Torq X10 can also be adjusted, and there's a weight system too. The design is also ambidextrous so both lefties and righties can get in on the action.

The EVGA Torq X10 is expected to be available from next month but we don't yet have a price, with EVGA saying simply that it will be competitively priced.

EVGA TorQ X10 Specifications:

  • Ambidextrous grip supporting left and right handed gamers.
  • Moveable mechanism allows for proper support of various hand sizes.
  • Avago 9800 laser provides up to 8200 DPI with up to 1000Hz polling rate.
  • Highest quality Omron switches with a lifespan of over 20 million clicks.
  • Supports up to 9 programmable buttons.
  • Fully customisable RGB LED.
  • Built in 512KB memory for profile storage.
  • Metal base provides solid construction.
  • Weight control system allowing you to customise the weight to your liking.
  • 6ft silver coated USB cable with braided surface.

Hmm.. The cable is just a blatant gimmick... The multiplane sizing does look promising, however. The carbon fiber, though a good look, also seems like a gimmick.

Personally I'll stick with my Deathadder, but I may be tempted to try this in the future.

Well aren't you just the sexiest little thing ever. I'd be really interested to see a review of this when the time comes. I like how they didn't go button crazy and try to cram half the keyboard onto the side of the mouse and I'm also interested in how good the texture feels to the hand. This one looks like a winner as long as the specs and feel can back up the price which is sure to be on the high end like the page says.

Carbon fiber to save weight?
Has an adjustable weight system.
Why bother with the carbon fiber if your just going to put extra weight in it?

The carbon fibre makes it impact resistant because if the mouse is travelling too fast and goes out of control... greater chance of surviving the impact. I've seen the results of mouse crashes and it's not pleasant.

Well for the money you have to lay on the table for this mouse, you could get 24 cheap ass laser mice that will last a live time. You do not even have to clean it, just throw it in the bin and unpack a new one. ah! so refreshing...

It'll need to be near or below the £60 range to be at a price point worth considering.

Personally I'm not too fond of the thin shape of it or the angle at the top of the mouse, I'd prefer something other than red for the button colour as well.

The oil from the fat-sacks of snakes is actually a particularly rich source of Omega-3s. Chinese water-snake oil contains 20 percent eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), while salmon, one of the most popular food sources of omega-3's, contains a maximum of 18 percent.
