Razer Reveals DeathAdder Elite Mouse and Gigantus Mouse Pad


Razer is shoring up their eSports line up with the announcement of the Razer DeathAdder Elite gaming mouse and of the Razer Gigantus mouse pad. The Razer DeathAdder Elite is the latest iteration of the popular DeathAdder mouse. The new version has been upgraded with the Razer 5G optical sensor that can track at up to 16,000 DPI at 4509 inches per second. Razer boasts that the sensor has the highest resolution accuracy on the market at 99.4%. Over the last several years, Razer has been bringing more and more manufacturing of parts for their products in house, such as their Cherry MX-style mechanical keyboard switches. They are now adding mechanical mouse switches to their portfolio. The Razer DeathAdder Elite will be the first mouse to use Razer’s in house switch, that boasts a 50 million click lifespan, equal to the company’s mechanical keyboard switches. Of course, the classic Razer DeathAdder shape is sticking around for the new DeathAdder Elite. The mouse will cost $69.99 USD/€79.99. Pre-orders are available now at Razer’s online store. The mouse will hit retailers in October.

Razer also announced their appropriately named Razer Gigantus mouse pad. Clocking in at 455mm by 455mm, the new mouse pad dwarfs the Razer Goliathus Large. The only thing larger in Razer’s line is the desktop sized Goliathus pads. Designed for low resolution mouse users like professional Counter Strike: Global Offensive players, the Razer Gigantus is a cloth mouse pad at only 5mm thick that will make sure large mouse swipes won’t fall off the end of the pad. The edges are stitched to prevent fraying and features a dense foam base. Pre-orders for the mouse pad are available now through Razer at $29.99 USD.
