Genesis Krypton 550 is a gaming mouse designed with tested solutions in mind. The manufacturer decided for a precise sensor and comprehensive software, and the whole set is enclosed in an ultralight perforated case with PRISMO illumination. The Genesis Krypton 550 is a gaming mouse with expanded functionality. Its software allows users to change the functions of each of its seven buttons, create macros and save them on in-built memory. Motion tracking is being handled by the PixArt PMW 3325 sensor. According to the manufacturer, it manages acceleration up to 20 G and tracks movements with speed of up to 100 inches per second.

The sensor sensitivity can be configured from 200 to 8000 DPI. Thanks to its perforated, 70 g casing the Genesis Krypton proves to be an interesting offer for FPS fans looking for speed and precision. Durability and customization were the focus of the designers as well. The manufacturer chose Huano switches with up to 20 million click durability, and the wheel, the insides and the bottom edges are equipped with RGB LED illumination.



Users can select from 16 million colors as well as enjoy the PRISMO effect. Genesis Kryption 550 connects to the computer with a 1.8 m cable. It is enclosed in a textile braid to provide durability. The device should be available on the market in the second half of October. The Genesis Krypton will cost around 34,99€ / 36,99USD. The mouse comes in white or black versions.

They should stick a small fan in there if there are holes. I hate hot mouse hand.
