Razer intros wired laser gaming mouse
Gaming peripherals maker Razer has began shipping its Abyssus gaming mouse. Rather than focus on extra buttons, the wired mouse is designed for simplicity first and improves only behind-the-scenes features. The ambidextrous three-button mouse has a 3,500DPI infrared sensor that gives it added precision in different types of games. Users get two switches, allowing them to set the sensitivity and speed of the mouse.
It can step down to 450 or 1,800DPI and polls for new data at 125Hz. The centrally mounted scroll wheel has 24 individual click positions to make weapon changes and scrolling more exact. The Abyssus is available in the US for $50 and shouldn't require drivers for either Macs or Windows PCs.
