Chinajoy 2019 is among the biggest gaming events in the Western gaming calendar. The exhibition officially launched today. Among the first releases at this event is the Razer Viper, an ambidextrous gaming mouse that features Razer’s 5G Optical Sensor technology for high precision in competitive gaming.

The Viper is designed with competitive gamers in mind and has been tested and endorsed by Team Razer eSports. Other eSports players have also lauded it. “As soon as I laid my eyes on this mouse, I already liked it because the shape is perfect for me. The click of the switches feel a lot better, and the cable is really nice and flexible; which is awesome for CS: GO.” said Taco, the MiBR Counter-Strike: Global Offensive professional player.

One thing Razer Inc. perfected is the design. This time, it isn’t just about the aesthetics and Razer Chroma™ lighting. With a 2.1 m / 6.89ft Razer™ Speedflex Cable, the Viper is only 69g and offers a comfortable grip allowing for controlled and swift swipes during battles. It features eight individually programmable hyper response buttons which can be configured via the Razer Synapse 3 software. The mouse features easily accessible macros and secondary functions, allowing for smooth execution of extended moves.

The Viper guarantees absolute control of your gaming courtey of Razer™ Optical Mouse Switch and a gaming-grade tactile scroll wheel. This is the fastest gaming mouse, boasting an impressive 0.2 ms response time. With instant actuation, it prevents debounces and unintended clicks, giving you the edge in your execution.

Another talking point is the Razer 5G Optical Sensor, which guarantees high precision, a critical aspect that ensures you remain on the competitive edge in eSports. This system boasts an impressive 99.4% accuracy and up to 16000dpi. Combined with your skill and dexterity, the Razer Viper is the key to your true manifestation in the game.

The onboard DPI storage is also worth mentioning. Instead of adjusting DPI settings every time, preset up to five profiles on the Razer Synapse 3 platform and toggle between the custom settings as you like. This is a great feature for eSports teams and gaming lounges with many players. A unique design of the Viper is the underside DPI button. This way, the chances of DPI shifts during those intense battles are eliminated.

The Razer Viper is available for purchase on the Razer website and other leading retailers including Amazon. It has an $80 price tag which might look quite extravagant, but not for the world’s fastest mouse switch in gaming. The Viper comes with a two-year warranty and 14 days risk-free returns if purchased from the official Razer store.
