Today Razer has launched a pair of new gaming mice. The Razer Lancehead (wireless) and Razer Lancehead Tournament Edition (wired) are ambidextrous mice with an identical looking design, packing true 16,000 DPI 5G optical sensors, Razer mechanical mouse switches, nine independently programmable 'Hyperesponse' buttons, Razer Chroma RGB lighting, and more.
Razer Lancehead - available May/June for US$139.99 / €149.99.
The Razer Lancehead features what is claimed to be a "revolutionary" new technology to ensure fast and stable wireless communication between mouse and computer. Razer's proprietary 'Adaptive Frequency Technology' (AFT) is said to connect to the strongest interference-free frequencies within the 2.4 GHz band, actively switching frequencies only if necessary. "The result is lag-free data transmission between the Razer Lancehead and PC that outperforms every other wireless gaming mouse," claims Razer.
Other impressive tech within the Lancehead mouse includes:
- True 16,000 DPI 5G laser sensor
- Up to 210 inches per second (IPS) / 50G acceleration
- Adaptive Frequency Technology via 2.4GHz dongle
- Razer Mechanical Mouse Switches (co-designed with Omron)
- On-The-Fly Sensitivity Adjustment
- Gaming-grade tactile scroll wheel
- Ambidextrous design with enhanced rubber side grips
- Razer Chroma lighting with true 16.8 million customizable colour options
- Inter-device colour synchronization
- Nine independently programmable Hyperesponse buttons
- 1000Hz Ultrapolling
- 24 hour battery life (lighting on)
Razer Lancehead Tournament Edition - available now for US$79.99 / €89.99 / £79.99.
This is the same mouse but reliant upon a wired connection. Due to the direct physical connection with your PC the Razer Lancehead Tournament Edition can manage an improved 450 inches per second (IPS) / 50G acceleration. All other specifications are as above, except for a slight weight difference, and its 7ft braided cable is used for data / power rather than just occasional charging duties, and of course it doesn't need batteries / charging.
Razer Synapse Pro (Beta)
The new Lancehead mice are the first to run with the soon-to-be released Razer Synapse Pro (Beta). Beyond the standard features of Synapse, Lancehead users can make use of the new unified configurator, and mouse settings can be saved directly to the mouse, as well as to the cloud, using the new hybrid on-board and cloud memory functionality.
