PC gamers have many decisions to make when buying peripherals. Price and brands aside, there are various technologies and style choices. For instance, if you buy a mechanical keyboard, what types of switches should you get? The toughest decision is probably when selecting a mouse — do you want wired or wireless? While a cordless variant may look nicer, a wired mouse doesn’t need a battery and can have less lag.

Today, Razer announces a new product that might make choosing a mouse even tougher. The Lancehead wireless gaming mouse is chock full of cool features, including a super-high 16,000 DPI optical sensor. It charges using USB, and the cable can double as a receiver extender. If you are dead-set against a wireless mouse, do not worry — the company is launching a wired “Tournament Edition” of the Lancehead with a laser sensor.

“The latest Razer mouse features Razer’s proprietary ‘Adaptive Frequency Technology’ (AFT), the world’s most precise laser sensor, hybrid on-board and cloud memory, and an all-new ambidextrous form factor. Razer’s advanced AFT wireless technology ensures industry-leading transmission stability by not only syncing data reporting perfectly between the mouse and the user’s system, but also connecting to the strongest interference-free frequencies within the 2.4 GHz band and adaptively hopping only when necessary. The result is lag-free data transmission between the Razer Lancehead and PC that outperforms every other wireless gaming mouse,” says Razer.

The famed gaming accessory-maker explains, “The 5G laser sensor in the Razer Lancehead offers true 16,000 DPI, 210 inches-per-second (IPS) tracking and 50 G acceleration. When speed and accuracy make the difference between winning or losing, the Razer Lancehead presents players with an unequivocal advantage. The Razer Lancehead features Razer Mechanical Mouse Switches, co-designed and manufactured with Omron. The new switches have an extended durability of up to 50 million clicks, and are optimized to deliver the optimal response times for gaming with a click latency has been tuned to be one of the fastest in the world. In addition to this, two DPI buttons allow players to change sensitivity on the fly for every situation, even in the midst of battle.”
