Razer today announces Razer Viper Ultimate, its wireless gaming mouse designed for the fastest esports on the market. With new HyperSpeed wireless technology and the Focus + Intelligent Optical Sensor, Viper Ultimate sets new standards for accuracy and speed.
The Razer Viper Ultimate joins the Viper featherweight line featuring mice for competitive gaming with acclaimed Optical Switches. Now without the need for cable, this new 74-gram mouse will be coveted not only by professionals but also by demanding PC gamers for its strong performance, ultra-lightweight design, improved durability and superior autonomy over previous Razer wireless mice. .
“Razer Viper Ultimate is the answer to the needs of the best Team Razer esport athletes who want to play wireless,” said Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President, Razer's Peripheral Business Unit. “We pushed the limits of wireless technology, integrated Razer Optical Switches and added an intelligent sensor – all in a durable, ultra-lightweight design, tested and validated by professional sports athletes.”
Faster, more reliable wireless performance
To meet the needs of competitive gaming, Razer has developed the fastest and most stable technology – Razer HyperSpeed. As tested and confirmed by TUV SUD PSB, a globally recognized certification institute, Razer HyperSpeed is 25% faster than the technology used in the industry leading wireless mouse. With the lowest click latency possible, Viper Ultimate delivers the fastest transmission speed on any wireless mouse, recording slips and clicks instantly.
HyperSpeed's improved Adaptive Frequency Technology helps keep your wireless connection latency-free by constantly tracking channel interference at different frequencies and seamlessly switching between channels in real time.
An added benefit of Razer HyperSpeed is reduced power consumption, resulting in 25% more autonomy for up to 70 hours of uninterrupted play until Viper Ultimate needs recharging. In other words, reloading the mouse once a week is sufficient to play daily for ten hours.
Redefining Precision With Intelligence
The Razer Viper Ultimate Sensor is equipped with a new and innovative sensor, the Razer Focus + Optical Sensor. Developed in collaboration with Pixart, a leader in smart sensor solutions, Razer introduces new smart sensor functions in Viper Ultimate, including Smart Tracking, Asymmetric Lifting and Motion-Sync. With 99.6% resolution accuracy, 20,000 DPI sensitivity and 650 Inches Per Second (IPS) tracking, the new Razer Focus + is the best spec sensor available today.
Intelligent Tracking automatically calibrates to different surfaces (e.g., woven or rigid mats), ensuring that lift distance and accuracy remain consistent and also eliminating the need for manual calibration as with older sensors.
Asymmetric Lifting Distance allows users to set different lifting and tracking distances for superior accuracy during play. The tracking distance marks the point at which the mouse re-reads the position, ideally it should be as close to the mat as possible to prevent unwanted drag.
Motion-Sync ensures that sensor information to the PC is sent at exact intervals for better sensor responsiveness and tracking consistency. With this new smart function, the PC will always have the latest update on the exact mouse position.
Optical Switches Provide Durability and Reliability
Wireless mice typically operate at low voltage to increase range. This impairs the corrosive effect on your mechanical switches, causing less durability and greater chance of accidental clicks.
Razer Optical Switches on the Viper Ultimate Wireless Mouse do not require physical contact to send electrical signals to the PC, eliminating the need to include delays for signal return and zero corrosive effects. Ultra-fast and durable, these switches meet the demands of competition ensuring the speed and accuracy that players want.
Powerful featherweight comes to esports
At just 74 grams, the Viper Ultimate is the lightest wireless gaming mouse for Razer esports. The lightweight design has been achieved without the need for an external exoskeleton, resulting in a solid, ambidextrous mouse that compromises neither power nor durability. To further reduce mouse dragging, Viper Ultimate uses ultra-soft, high-end PTFE mouse pads so every move is faster and more accurate.
The Razer Viper Ultimate has already been field-tested and has been used in high level tournaments by some of the best sports athletes in the world. “The wireless speed on this mouse is incredible, it gives a perfect sense of movement, no different from playing in wired mode,” said CS legend: GO MIBR Team's “TACO” Epitacio, who tested wireless prototypes Razer Viper in tournaments this year. “The extremely accurate sensor is perfect for intense games with CS: GO.”
Using Razer Synapse 3, users can configure the eight programmable buttons, set milestones or secondary functions and save all profile settings to Viper Ultimate Integrated Memory. With integrated storage of up to five profiles, users have instant access to their personal settings wherever they are.
Viper Ultimate is also available in a bundle that includes the Razer Mouse Base, with RGB Razer Chroma with 16.8 million colors and unique light effects. The new base is designed to accommodate future Razer wireless mice and features a USB-A port for using Viper Ultimate with the included Speedflex cable.
