Gaming device manufacturer, Razer, officially launched a new gaming mouse called the Viper 8K. This wired mouse comes with a variety of improvements over the previous Viper series products.
One of the advantages offered by the Viper 8K is the capability of the world’s fastest polling rate, reaching 8,000 Hz (8 KHz). Polling rate is the mouse’s ability to inform the computer’s position.
For the Viper 8K, the maximum number is 8,000 times per second. The higher the polling rate the mouse has, the more accurate and responsive the movement will be.
The Viper 8K’s polling rate capability is much different from a typical gaming mouse, which only reaches 1,000 Hz (1,000 times per second).
On paper, this mouse is also claimed to be able to produce performance that is eight times faster than most other gaming mice.
the Viper 8K is also equipped with a 20,000 dpi sensor which is widely used in other gaming mice from Razer. The 8K Viper is also fairly light, weighing 71 grams.
To be able to experience the optimal performance of this gaming mouse, Razer advises users to run the Viper 8K with a monitor screen that supports a refresh rate of 144 Hz.
As for configuration, the computer or laptop used should have at least an Intel Core i5-8600K or AMD Ryzen 5 3600 processor and a graphics processor of at least Nvidia GTX 1080 or AMD Radeon RX 5700.
In the global market, the Viper 8K has been officially sold with a price tag of 79 US dollars
