Mad Catz Global Limited, the leading innovators in gaming hardware, is excited to announce that highly anticipated R.A.T. 8+ ADV high-performance mouse is now shipping. A flagship product in the R.A.T. range, the R.A.T. 8+ ADV features a wealth of uniquely customizable components and best-in-class technology designed for the competitive gamer and engineered to bring out the very best in gamers' abilities.

Featuring the top-of-the-range Pixart PMW 3389 PRO optical sensor, the R.A.T. 8+ ADV blows the competition away, able to perform at an extreme 20000 DPI with movement speeds of up to 400 inches per second, and 50G of acceleration. The R.A.T. 8+ ADV includes high-durability switches, providing a life expectancy of more than 60 million clicks, ensuring that your gaming mouse never lets you down in the heat of the battle.





The ability to adjust and customize the R.A.T. to suit the users' personal preference, has long been a stand out feature of the range, and the R.A.T. 8+ ADV delivers in a jaw-dropping fashion. Powerful Mad Catz software works in harmony with the mouse, allowing every aspect of the sensor, button configuration, and lighting to be tweaked, adapting to the gamers' preferred playstyle instead of the other way around. Players can assign complex macro commands with timing accuracy to 1/2000th of a second to any of the programmable controls.

The R.A.T. 8+ ADV features a host of features engineered for gamers at the top of their game:

  • Palm Rest: Whether your grip is palm, claw, or fingertip, the R.A.T. 8+ ADV can quickly adapt by adjusting in length to suit your gaming style.
  • Thumb Rest: Moving along two axes, gamers can find the ideal position for their thumb to rest during the battle, improving comfort and reaction times.
  • Extra parts: R.A.T. 8+ ADV comes with 2 pairs of swappable palm rests and pinkie rest, including anti-slip Palm Rests and Pinkie Rests to further enhance your grip.
  • Barrel Scroll: The R.A.T. 8+ ADV features a unique scrollable barrel component situated on the top of the mouse. With Barrel Scroll, FPS games take on a whole new life, with easier leaning and sharper controls when evading the enemy or assisting a teammate.
  • Precision Aim: Increase or decrease the sensor or cursor speed with a single button press, ideal for snipper modes and smashing that perfect shot!
  • Weight: Bin the bulk and tailor your mouse to your preferred weight via a series of removable weights included in pack. Alter the weight of your mouse depending on the genre of game you are playing or the length of time played, reducing fatigue and increasing accuracy.
  • Chameleon RGB Lighting: Bath your gaming environment in mesmerizing light. Customize your lighting environment, choosing between millions of colors and even apply patterns such as breathing and pulse if static lighting isn't your thing!
  • High-Quality Coating: Featuring a striking red-gloss-coating, the R.A.T. 8+ ADV is made to be seen and feels addictively tactile during play

The R.A.T. 8+ ADV was recognized earlier this year at the highly prestigious Red Dot Awards, winning 'Product Design Award 2020' for its unique design, unrivaled adjustability, and premium specification. Tested against more than 6,500 products, the R.A.T. 8+ ADV emerged victorious for its craftsmanship and innovative design.

So this means that I could now traverse a 40" monitor in 1/10th of a second and get the thrill of experiencing 15x the g-forces of launching off an aircraft carrier in a fighter jet, all at the same time...

Those spec are "maximum operating" condition. Having this kind of specification much higher than the typical usage is a mean of assuring it will never fail under any circumstances.
However, even half of those will be "sufficient" at any CPI setting.

Who even buys anything from this crappy company? They're still living in 2006. The whole design language of their products is super cringe.

I had the RAT 7 back in the day. The customization was quite nice, but the mouse just want comfortable to me. This look to be similar so I'd think it wouldn't be too comfortable either.

This is just the same mouse as r.a.t 7/8/8+ with a new sensor, everything else is the same. They are still using the flimsy side buttons that break.

By selling Saitek, yeah. Why they ever bought them is beyond me. It was like, GM buying Mercedez Benz or something.

No, they are not the same. The original Mad Catz Interactive US based company is bankrupt. This is a new company Mad Catz Global Limited based in Hong Kong made of the manufacturers of the old MAD Catz.
