As the year comes to a close, major technological advancements are always on the horizon, many of them targeted at the gaming community. From accessories for mobile gaming to additional fans to prevent the PlayStation 5 from overheating, all sorts of hardware innovations are emerging. However, among PC gaming enthusiasts, there’s a special place for mice and keyboards. After Logitech set a high standard with their Lightspeed keyboard and Superlight 2 mouse, Razer is now introducing a mouse ready to make a big impact: it’s called the Viper V3 HyperSpeed.
While the Superlight V3 is extremely lightweight, Razer doesn’t necessarily aim to compete with this aspect. However, they have managed to establish an extremely comfortable ergonomics for prolonged use, making the mouse feel much lighter than it is, allowing for easy movement without exerting too much force. Weighing 82 grams, it might be challenging to notice this detail if you’re not used to using it regularly.
With a maximum sensitivity of 30,000 pixels per inch (DPI), the mouse has a maximum speed of 750 inches per second, registering movements very smoothly even in extreme circumstances (to be honest, it’s highly unlikely you’ll move the mouse at a speed of 15 meters per second). However, be cautious when combining these two options because while the Superlight V3 has 6 programmable buttons, it doesn’t have a sniper button, so if you’re not careful, you could easily lose sight of the cursor.
With a battery life of up to 280 hours (though realistically it’s around 80), the mouse uses regular batteries instead of being rechargeable. With prolonged use, this could lead to the battery running out at an inconvenient time.
Nevertheless, considering these factors and its price of around 70 euros, the Razer Viper V3 HyperSpeed appears to be an excellent option for enhancing your setup if you find it necessary.
