Razer has announced a firmware update for its Razer Viper Mini Signature Edition, a high-end wireless gaming mouse with a magnesium alloy exoskeleton weighing only 49g.
The update enables the mouse to achieve true 8,000Hz wireless polling rates, which means it can communicate with the PC every 0.125 milliseconds, resulting in unparalleled accuracy and responsiveness.
It’s worth noting that the industry standard for gaming mice polling rate is 1,000Hz, which means the Viper Mini Signature Edition can achieve a polling rate eight times higher than the industry standard.
