Gaming peripheral manufacturer Razer has upgraded its Deathadder Chroma mouse to Elite status. The Deathadder Elite's spec sheet is flush with numbers, some of which are definitely larger than those of the previous edition of the mouse.
For example, Razer replaces the Chroma's numerically-inferior sensor with a 16,000-DPI unit capable of tracking at speeds up to 450 inches per second. The Razer team also touts the new Deathadder's "mechanical" Omron switches under the main mouse buttons, though no one on the TR staff can recall an encounter with mouse switches of any other type. The DeathAdder Elite comes with back and forward buttons under the right thumb, DPI up and down switches, and a middle-click button under the thumb wheel in addition to those main buttons.
The mouse's dimensions and weight are identical to the outgoing Chroma, at 5" x 2.76" x 1.73" (or 127mm x 70mm x 44mm). This rodent weighs 3.7 oz (105g), and it comes with a generous seven-foot braided cord terminated in a gold-plated USB connector. Razer's Synapse management software can direct the mouse's RGB LEDs to light up in any of 16.8 million colors or in a variety of animations.
Interested gamers can preorder the Deathadder Elite for $70 at Razer's website. Razer expects shipments to begin October 3.
