Gaming outfit Razer has announced a new variant of its classic Naga massively multiplayer online (MMO) centric mouse, the Razer Naga Chroma, boasting what the company claims is the most advanced sensor around.
As the name suggests, the Razer Naga Chroma features the company's programmable Chroma lighting system, capable of cycling through millions of colours and syncing with other Chroma-compatible devices - and even of tying in to games themselves, fading to red as you get injured as an example. The main improvement over previous generation models, though, is in the use of the company's fifth-generation laser sensor. Boasting a 16,000 dots per inch (DPI) tracking resolution user-adjustable in 1 DPI increments, the company claims it's the most advanced around and perfect for high-resolution display and multi-monitor use.
'People thought we were crazy when we invented the MMO gaming mouse - and the Razer Naga went on to surpass even our own expectations - but now, many of our competitors are trying to recreate the design of this game-changing device,
' claimed company co-founder and chief executive Min-Liang Tan of the launch. 'We're confident that the sensor technology we are utilising will keep Razer Naga users a step ahead of their competition.
The iconic button pad that made the Naga stand out from the crowd when it originally launched is present and correct in the Naga Chroma: 12 concave mechanical buttons featuring tactile, clicky feedback and designed to be easily located with the user's thumb. Naturally, this makes it a device solely for right-handed mousers; thus far, the company has not indicated plans to release a left-hand-friendly variant.
The company has confirmed that the mouse will launch in the UK on the 27th of November priced at £69.99. More information is available on the official product page
