Razer on Thursday introduced what it believes is the most precise gaming mouse to date: the Lachesis is the first to use the company's third-generation laser tracker and produces an unheard of 4000DPI resolution. This lets the mouse interpret as many as 100 inputs per second and respond to fast movement with up to 25 Gs of acceleration. And unlike some gaming mice, the ability to drop DPI is accomplished through hardware and prevents the sometimes inaccurate scaling from software-based tweaks, Razer claims. Two switches step sensitivity up or down in fixed increments.
The Lachesis perpetuates the mouse designer's tradition of customizability with nine individually programmable mouse buttons, 32KB of memory that stores preferred settings, and the option of either a blue or white shell. Razer ships the ambidextrous USB mouse in October for $80.
