A new mouse, with Omron-based mechanical switches, has been announced by CORSAIR. The GLAIVE RGB is right-handed asymmetric, so lefties (like myself) who are looking for a left-handed or ambidextrous mouse will need to look elsewhere. For right-handed users, however, it includes three different thumb grips, giving it a few different feels, although they don’t state the specific styles that each is supposed to cater to (if you are very particularly about your hand position during gaming). You will want to check out reviews to find that sort of info out.
The switches are rated to 50,000,000 clicks.
The sensor is created by PixArt, model PMW3367 that, according to CORSAIR, has been customized in some way. The DPI ranges between 100 and 16,000, with the specific values stored on the mouse, within its 8MB of memory. This storage also saves lighting effects and macros, which should mean that, unlike Razer Synapse, you won’t have your button bindings flip a handful of seconds after boot. There are six programmable buttons on the device and the mouse wheel is made of aluminum with a rubber grip.
The CORSAIR GLAIVE RGB is available now. It’s currently listed for $69.99 on Amazon.
