HyperX, the gaming division of Kingston Technology, Inc., today announced the release of the HyperX Pulsefire Haste gaming mouse. Weighing in at 59 grams, Pulsefire Haste utilizes an ultra-light honeycomb hex shell design that offers quicker movements and increased ventilation. Designed to meet the needs of gamers looking for an ultra-lightweight mouse to complement their gaming skills, Pulsefire Haste delivers ultimate comfort and command at your fingertips.

Pulsefire Haste features TTC Golden Micro Dustproof switches with 60M click durability, six programmable buttons and onboard memory to save a custom profile through HyperX NGENUITY software. The mouse also provides four preset DPI settings - 400, 800, 1600, and 3200 DPI - and uses a Pixart 3335 sensor for accurate tracking and native DPI settings up to 16,000 DPI.



Pulsefire Haste is built with low-friction, pure virgin-grade PTFE skates for effortless glide movement. This ultra-lightweight mouse also utilizes a HyperFlex USB cable designed to reduce tension and resistance for easier mouse movements with the use of light and flexible paracord material.

"HyperX continues to meet the ever-changing needs of gamers at all levels, including those looking for a lightweight, multi-platform compatible mouse designed for top gaming performance," said Jennifer Ishii, mouse business manager, HyperX. "Pulsefire Haste combines HyperX's high-quality design and comfort in an ultra-lightweight solution for quicker in-game movements and improved accuracy when using the included grip tape, helping players effortlessly mirror their movements in-world."

Pulsefire Haste includes grip tape on both sides of the mouse as well as on the left and right mouse buttons for additional control and comfort. A replacement set of PTFE skates are also included for people who find that they wear through their mouse skates fairly quickly. Pulsefire Haste is customizable with HyperX NGENUITY software and allows users to personalize DPI settings, RGB lighting, button assignments, and record macros.

Availability
The HyperX Pulsefire Haste gaming mouse is initially available in the U.S. for $49.99 MSRP through HyperX's Online Shop. For more information on global availability for the HyperX Pulsefire Haste gaming mouse, please visit the HyperX Pulsefire Haste product page.

I really hope it's just a fad that'll go away soon. Tired of pointless cookie-cutter designs.

I have to admit, my admission into the HyperX fan club started with my purchase of their Stinger Core Wireless + 7.1 headset and I haven't looked back since. Got myself a couple of their Fury S - speed edition mouse mats (The XL and large sizes were both too big for my desk so I just grabbed two medium sized ones -- perfect!), the fabulous Alloy Origins Core keyboard (aqua switches + their pudding keycaps) and just a few days ago I swapped out my ROCCAT Kone Pure SE mouse for HyperX's Pulsefire Surge!

So yeah, I guess I'm a bit of a HyperX fan girl, hehe. Can y'all blame me though, honestly? I mean, they make great products, yes, but the main reason I've become such a fan of theirs is because they make stuff that's both affordable AND well-made, without the "exclusivity" tax popular with Asus and Corsair. I mean, $50 effing bucks for a set of double shot PBT keycaps, Corsair? Really? :kookoo: My HyperX keycaps costed HALF that! :p

I like how they included grippy tape and replacement mouse feet with this mouse.

Because Kingston's HyperX line of products JUST WORKS. Their Alloy Origins Core is a simple TKL keyboard, but is sturdy enough with damn good tactile but silent switches (HyperX Aqua) at a fair price compared to others. The Pulsefire Dart is a bit heavier than similarly-priced mice, but it has USB-C for charging and wired functionality, can go wireless and can also charge wirelessly on a standard Qi pad.

Lets not forget the Cloud line of headsets (which are mostly based off the Takstar Pros but better build quality).

Now this new Pulsefire Haste... not too sure about it. It uses Pixart 3335 and not the proven 3389. But it is 59g which is the point of these holed-out mice. I believe it is a replacement of the Pulsefire FPS Pro which is 95g but has the 3389.

Who cares? It's the performance that counts. Which begs the question, is there a practical need for 16,000DPI response sensitivity? It seems like it would be seriously diminishing returns for anything above 4800DPI.

No there isn't, in fact low sens is generally a preferred play mode for FPS, but ultra high sense certainly has no use.

It also incurs sensor penalties I believe if you go beyond what it can natively do.
