GIGABYTE, a leading manufacturer of motherboards and graphics cards, is proud to extend its Aivia peripheral series with M8600 Wireless Macro Gaming Mouse. The first product from GIGABYTE’s highly anticipated Aivia series, Aivia K8100 Gaming Keyboard, has recently received prestigious red dot design award. The second product to be launched under Aivia, M8600 Wireless Macro Gaming Mouse, is the world’s first wireless gaming mouse to guarantee 100-hour nonstop gaming experience. Plus, it also consists of a wide range of state-of-the-art features, including two-second quick-swap battery system (patent pending), multi-functional charging dock, twin-eye gaming-grade laser engine, and GHOST macro engine technology.



Aivia - Advanced, Intuitive, and Versatile Interface Archetype
Adding to the already popular gaming device, GIGABYTE first announced its brand new Aivia product line at 2010 Computex. Aivia, an integrated acronymic word, is derived from its key features – advanced, intuitive, and versatile interface archetype. The series is to emphasize the combination of the subconscious, design and function as well as the pursuit of archetype. GIGABYTE believes each mouse and keyboard are the scrupulous work of mankind’s brainpower. Aivia is not only an extension to the human intellect, but also an intuitive extension to the use of artificial intelligence. For that reason, Aivia can also be interpreted as the AI via GIGABYTE.

  • Dual Mode Functionality: Wireless mode gives freedom for gaming. Wired mode provides extra fast charging capabilities as well as enabling editing the onboard macros.
  • Multi-functional Charging Dock: Aivia M8600 Wireless Macro Gaming Mouse comes with an instant charging dock, served as mouse and Li-ion battery charger as well as wireless receiver unit.

It joins the ranks of other hybrid mice like the Razer Mamba & my Microsoft Sidewinder X8.
LOL, it looks like a tyre tread on the mousewheel to direct sweat away and prevent aqua planing, LOL!

I can see it now... playing an online FPs and "... oh hang on guys gotta re-load my mouse. (5 sec later) K back."

looks like a pretty sweet mouse. would be perfect for those with both a gaming desktop and a gaming laptop... leave the cable for you desktop and use the batteries for on the go (leaving the rf module on the laptop)

this may be my next mouse
