Peripherals maker Qpad has announced a new mouse, which represents the company's first new shape in seven years: the DX-20.
Inspired, the company explains, by Microsoft's classic Intellimouse 1.1, the Qpad DX-20 is an ambidextrous design with a focus on gaming. The internal sensor is based around zero-acceleration usage, providing a 1:1 movement-to-screen matching which the company claims is critical for tournament-quality gaming. An on-board ARM processor and memory module provide programmability for the mouse's seven buttons, along with user-definable sensitivity and macro options with the promise of driver-free plug-and-play compatibility - though programming, naturally, requires Qpad's software to be installed.
The mouse, as is increasingly common among gaming peripherals, also includes programmable RGB LED lighting. Located in the bottom plate, a strip of LEDs are claimed to improve 'visibility of the cursor during low-light gaming sessions,' which further LEDs are found in the logo and beneath the scroll wheel.
The company has confirmed that it plans to launch the DX-20 at the Dreamhack event on the 26th of November, priced at €69. UK pricing and availability have yet to be confirmed.
