[PLUS] Six wireless gaming mice in a comparative test


wireless collection

Wireless gaming mice are no different from their wired counterparts in terms of data transmission and scanning performance, or in terms of hardware. Etxras like a mini-joystick (Asus ROG Chakram X), a keyboard with 12 buttons (Steelseries Aerox 9 Wireless), optionally attachable grip tape (Cooler Master MM731/Razer Viper V2 Pro) or a special case design that supports RGB special Lighting (Roccat Burst Pro Air) can also be found in wireless models, as the test shows. However, wireless gaming mice have so far been at a disadvantage in terms of weight, as while their long-lasting batteries are getting lighter, they increase the overall weight by as much as 20 grams.

The slimming trend

Whether it was manufacturers or (semi-)professional e-athletes and frequent gamers who started the trend towards lightweight gaming mice is hard to tell. The fact is that light weight is a very important feature for any mouse used primarily for PC gaming. Regardless of the Dpi rate, you need noticeably less power for any mouse movement than with a significantly heavier wireless representative that, like the Asus ROG Chakram X, weighs in at 122 grams.
