SteelSeries Introduces Wireless Gaming Mouse With New Sensor Technology

SteelSteries offers gamers two new mice, one catering to esports and one to customizability.

Today, SteelSeries announced two new mice are set to enter its Rival series lineup. The first is a completely new offering, the Rival 650 wireless gaming mouse, while the second is a rework of the Rival 700, named the Rival 710.

The Rival 650 features an improved version of SteelSeries sensor technology TrueMove3. The original tech features a 12,000 CPI, 350 IPS optical sensor built exclusively by the company in partnership with PixArt. This tech is expanded upon in the 650 with the TrueMove3+ dual sensor system, which adds a second sensor that exclusively tracks lift-off distance.

Players can adjust this sensor to customize when it stops tracking once the mouse is lifted off a surface. 

This, combined with the mouse's weight system supposedly results in a customizable low-latency, rapid-response tracking that provides the player with esports-level performance.

The Rival 650 is also the first wireless gaming mouse to offer a fast charging feature -- when connected to a USB port that supports it. Depending on how a player has the mouse's lighting profile configured, a five-minute charge can result in three hours of battery life. A 15-minute charge will provide more than 10 hours.

Those looking for a new wireless gaming mouse can grab the Rival 650 on the SteelSeries site for $119.99.

 

As for the Rival 710, the mouse builds on the design of the Rival 700, adding the TrueMove3 sensor and 60-million-click switch durability. It also allows players to set up vibration options.

The mouse is completely modular, even coming with a modular cable system and customizable parts -- like the back and the sensor. 

The Rival 710 is also available on the SteelSeries site and currently costs $99.99 US.
