Gaming device maker Razer announced a new model of gaming mouse, Viper 8KHz.
Viper 8KHz is a new model of the wired mouse Viper series that has already been released in Japan. The appearance hasn’t changed much, and it’s the same for both left and right. DPI updated from 16,000 to 20,000. The mouse switch is also equipped with a second-generation Razer optical mouse switch with an enhanced click feel.
But the biggest change is the inclusion of Razer Hyper Polling technology with a polling rate of 8000Hz. The polling rate is the frequency with which peripheral devices send data to the PC, and 1000Hz (1000 times per second) is the industry standard for gaming mice. This means that there will be a delay of up to 1ms between mouse input and reflection on the PC.
On the other hand, Razer 8KHz corresponds to 8000Hz which is 8 times. The delay is also suppressed to a maximum of 0.125ms. The movement of the mouse cursor will also be smooth, and the effect will be noticeable on monitors with high refresh rates.
To be honest, I don’t think you can tell the difference between 1ms (1/1000 second) and 0.125ms (1/8000 second), but according to Razer, it benefits everyone from casual players to professional players. There is. After a wide range of tests, from professional players to mouse enthusiasts, many reported responsiveness.
It can only be used by wire to ensure this responsiveness, but if you are playing a game such as FPS where the momentary operation determines the outcome, Viper 8KHz may be a good option.
