Razer announced their new mouse, the Lancehead, which claims to “outperforms every other wireless gaming mouse”. It runs on a 2.4ghz frequency but uses frequency hopping to dodge interference, that gets compounded in a tournament setting, and provide a lag-free experience. That’s a pretty radical statement as the Logitech G900 addresses the same issues and is pretty good even in areas with high interference so I am really interested in seeing how they compare head-to-head. Oh, and of course it has chroma.
Spec-wise, Lancehead has a true 16,000 DPI sensor, which can track at 210 inches-per-second and handle an absurd 50G acceleration. It has Razer Mechanical Mouse Switches, dedicated buttons for sensitivity switching, and a few extra programmable buttons. The design is ambidextrous, which is good news for us lefties. The mouse also includes internal memory to save and sync mouse settings offline, in addition to the existing cloud-syncing functionality Razer offers through Razer Synapse.
They are also going to sell a wired edition, ironically named the Lanchead Tounament Edition, which bumps the Inches per second tracking speed to 450.
Both mice are available for preorder now. The wireless Lancehead will ship in May or June for $139.99, while the wired version ships in April or May for $79.99.
