Gaming device manufacturer Razer has announced the gaming mouse Viper 8KHz.
This product looks almost the same as the existing Viper series, and supports both left and right. The DPI is 16,000 to 20,000 rpm, and the mouse switch is also equipped with a second-generation laser optical mouse switch with enhanced click feeling.
However, the biggest change is that it is equipped with Razer HyperPolling technology, which corresponds to a polling rate of 8,000Hz. Polling rate is the frequency at which the peripheral device transmits data to the PC. For gaming mice, 1,000 Hz, so 1,000 transmissions per second is the industry standard. It means that there is a maximum delay of 1ms from mouse input until reflected on the PC.
In contrast, this product responds to 8,000Hz, which is 8 times, and maintains a maximum delay time of 0.125ms. The mouse cursor movement is smooth and the effect is said to be noticeable in high refresh rate monitors. Of course, the difference between 1ms and 0.125ms may be known to the public, but it explains that casual players to pro gamers can expect benefits. Related information can be found here .
