Razer Diamondback Update

Razer has unveiled the next generation of its Diamondback mouse, updating the company's signature gaming controller to reflect newer technology. The third generation includes a new 1800 dots-per-inch optical sensor that achieves laser-like tracking without the extra cost. Sampling occurs at 6400 frames per second and supports movements of up to five feet in the same space of time without losing precision, Razer says. Gamers can also dial back sensitivity for sniping or regular software. Gripping the mouse is also easier through a rubberized texture that replaces the smooth plastic of before.

Seven programmable, quick-access mouse buttons and a 24-point scroll wheel have been brought over from the previous generation of the Diamondback, with the trademark glowing frame and wheel also going unchanged. Razer plans to release the upgrade on August 1st and will raise the price of the mouse from $50 to $60 when it ships, with lighting coming in either blue, green, or red.
