Razer Unveils the World's Most Advanced Gaming Mouse

Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the world's most advanced gaming mouse, the new Razer Mamba. The successor to one of the leading wired/wireless gaming mouse, the new Razer Mamba is powered by the world's most precise gaming mouse sensor, the revolutionary Adjustable Click Force Technology, and industry leading gaming grade wired/wireless technology.

The new 5G laser sensor is capable of tracking up to 16,000 DPI which is optimized for multi-display set-ups with ultra-high display resolutions. The 5G laser sensor is also 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. The 5G laser sensor in the new Razer Mamba was designed to be an extension of your natural hand movement.
Razer's latest gaming mouse also features the patent pending, revolutionary Adjustable Click Force Technology. One of the most important facets of a gaming mouse is the click force -- and 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, instead of having to adapt to a mouse's set click force, this revolutionary feature allows gamers to freely adjust the level of click force needed to activate the left and right mouse buttons, from distinct clicks for high accuracy actions such as sniping in FPS games to lighter presses for rapid fire action needed for MOBA games. The Razer Mamba's 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."

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, the Razer 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 colors 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 colors 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.

Currently no laser sensor with no acceleration/smoothing exists, if this is it it's going to be the first.

I feel this is the case with most mice out there.
And that price makes no sense, it costs even more in euro then in dollars?

well ... as long as it's not a Razer ... for example my Roccat Tyon cost less than a Naga (and optionally doesn't break something after 3 weeks of use ...) is more comfortable and reliable ... so ... why pay more for a "brand" that doesn't even know how to do good stuff like they did when they started (same example with my Roccat Ryos TKL Pro and any Razer mech keyboard i tried... or between a Roccat Alumic and a Razer Vespula ... or, well they do good mousemat but ... too expensive as usual, latest addition to my desk was a Roccat Taito S 3mm)

i also have big hands ... well if i except the Logitech G600/602 and the Trust GXT166 (even that one was better than a Naga) the Tyon is the most comfortable mouse i ever had

well quality wise .... Razer is the Fisher-Price of the PC gaming peripheral, so ... your sentence make sense (as long as you don't dare to include any other good brand in the mix ahah )

Sorry mate, can you repeat that? Your sentence doesn't make any sense. What's wrong with the laser? Laser currently is used in the most precised tools for calculations and such, with latestsensors able to go nano-meter size, depending on lenses and focus.
So what are your points??

I bet if I gave all of you anti-laser fanatics a mouse with laser sensor that said optical on the box you would happily use it and praise the precise movement without acceleration all around the internet :p

P.S. This mouse looks like shit :D

The problem with laser hating in the first place is... we could actually feel the imprecision...
Otherwise laser would be automatically winning every e-penis contest. Newer, absurd dpi, can track on glass, more expensive, and freakin laz0r.

And uh, every half decent mouse enthusiast would probably test it for themselves since every mouse is different for each person. A bit like any GPU enthusiast would benchmark the shit out of any new card he bought. So, no. No praising before testing.

I use the G700s and after a while i have no issue with the laser, and i play games like Deus Ex and Arma which are totally different. Main issue i find with the G700s is how how heavy it is but after learning and getting used to the laser being at the front i have found this mouse to be as accurate than any other and that's from a lefty.

Out of 4 Razer mice i have own every single one has failed me with in 6-8 months of use a long with their typical 1 year warranty and my god they will totally ignore you if it's a day or so after it.

I believe Steelseries have just showed some good faith as i have a Sensei which was a replacement for a ZIA back in 2012, anyways way after the warranty i thought i would just drop a message to them asking them for the top part shell and they responded with a RMA number which means they are willing to replace it even though the original warranty for the mouse is 3 years which when i got the XIA they all had a 1 year warranty.

Razer will plain out ignore any thing, and had enough after 2 failing keyboards and 4 mice of their rubbish.

And they want 100$+ for these OMG not a chance in hell.

Spoiler: "Message to SS"

HI, it's been some time i got a XIA mouse from you guys and was replaced a few months later due to double clicking, you sent me a Sensei which failed after the warranty with the same issue.

Now having a closer look at this mouse the plastic that pushes against the switch is indented which suggests the plastic is to soft. The mouse was used a lot but was never miss treated.

Anyways i like to know if there is any way i could get the top part of the case\shell ?.

At this time i have stopped buying your mice as a 1-2 year warranty is just not long enough ( not when this problem common ) even more so when some ones paying $100 for a mouse to fail 6 months in and be replaced with another to just to do the same thing after the warranty.

Spoiler: "Their responce"

I don't remember how many mice I have had over the years. Good ones, bad ones, ugly ones and pretty ones.
At the end of the day, I always prefer my Razer Copperhead.

I picked up a Razer Mamba a few weeks before they were released here in Australia via ' a source ' and I just never really liked the feel in my hand. Perhaps because I never really used it, the battery pack swelled and instead of buying a new battery, I just tossed the mouse and its charger in the bin, but I kept the USB braided cable, I thought that was cool :)

I did like the idea behind the R.A.T series, being adjustable and all that.

So, if anyone knows where I can buy a brand new Razer Copperhead, please let me know, ill take a few :) They don't seem to be available anymore :(

(* P.S. 16,000 DPi would come in handy with most peoples 1920x1080 monitors! Or was the majority survey of monitor resolutions 1366x768, *) either way ~~~~ 16,000 DPi, get over yourself!
I can't imagine running around in a First Person Shooter with 16,000 DPi, Made For Gamers, By Gamers!

Edit :- Sometimes people can not tell if I am being sarcastic, so I use (* to start the sarcastic sentence and *) to end the sarcastic sentence. - This was not a sarcastic sentence in itself. Wow, I even confuse myself!

No matter how advanced Razer stuff is it will always break in 6-9 months.

Good luck with RMA folks!

oh rly? you must be really hard on stuff.

I have a keyboard, mouse/mouse Pad and headphones all Razer... I have no issues with any of them and I have had them for well over a year now. these are ones that I play with and replaced... I had the gen 1 stuff and sold all of it in working order, played on that for over a year.

I also go to LANs about every 3-4 months. which puts added stress on all my equipment.

So either you are just trolling this thread or you have no experience with Razer or you have had really bad luck or you are really hard on your gear.
I have several gaming buddies that have had Razer gear for well over a year. never heard any of them complain

He's right. Laser can have jitter and acceleration problems.

I have found most razer mice with laser sensors to be almost impossible to use on any pad surface with my 5.1 on.
My deathadder with the optical sensor didn't do this nor did my logitech's, same desk same speakers same surfaces.
Its so bad with my naga hex that if I leave it sensor down with speakers on I have to unplug it or it moves erratically even after the speakers are off.
I tried a friends DA with the new laser and it does the same thing.

My Razer Lachesis does that skipping but just when it feels like. How ever not witnessed any thing like that with the G700s on a glass pad.

I've not tried any other mouse for gaming other than Mad Catz R.A.T. 9 because of how highly customisable it is to cater for weight preferences and hand sizes. Awesome mouse but would be happy to try something different if there are better ones out there.

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeehhhhh???? even with my bass on max and volume to the top and the subwoofer sitting on a plank under the desk (aka: right under the desk) with a Roccat Tyon and a Roccat Alumic (or Taito) i have zero (yep 0 ) issue of the sort...

i had countless LED optical and laser optical mice, LED optical where the most uncomfortable except for the Logitech G602
for the moment i never used above 2600 dpi (G600/G602/GXT166/Tyon) the GXT was the funnier ... 16400 dpi but LED (see the Post scriptum aht the end of my post)? does that even exist? i looked the sensor and the illumination device was totally not a laser but a red led just like in my old intelimouse i had in the past.


ofc ... if you take a p.o.s brand like Razer or Madcatz (the 2 brand with the most RMA in all my hardware and peripheral i got for my rig... and also the 2 brand with the most "fried sensor" i had)

they are better one out there... and a lot ... (not hard to do better than Madcatz ...) the only good thing about the R.A.T.Z is the shape customization.
altho even adjusted for me my R.A.T. 7 still feel like a p.o.s and less comfortable, compared to my Tyon (and got a sensor fried ...)

what i love with the Tyon is the button placement, i loved the Naga idea but not Razer ... so when Logitech did the G600 i was quite happy to switch, then the G602 then the Trust GXT166 (which even for a low cost mouse lasted way longer and was way better than a Naga, for half the price ... ) but the Tyon buttons placement is on a whole other level ... not all under the thumb it's a bit less tiring (yep ... thumbpad was tiring for me mostly due to the 6 button that were situated on the back part) totally intuitive once you remember the numbering, and very ergonomic. the only thing i did not get used is the fin switch but ... if i set a emergency shortcut on it ... i use it naturaly ahah ie: medkit, glider, eject, close all windows

PS: all mouse are optical just the illumination device change ... (LED or laser)

Would be nice to try it, but the only way of doing that properly is to become a reviewer. :(

The Intellimouse Explorer 3.0 stays.
