Corsair continues to add products to its lineup of fancy peripherals, and its latest offering is the Scimitar RGB mouse. This particular species of yellow-and-black rodent is targeted at right-handed MMO and MOBA players, and it's got a thumb panel with—count' em—12 buttons.
The button panel can slide back and forth through 8mm of travel, an adjustment that could be a leg up over the Scimitar's many-buttoned competitors. The Scimitar also has four customizable zones of RGB LED lighting. Corsair's CUE software handles macro programming and lighting customization duties. All the buttons in the world aren't any help if the mouse doesn't track properly, though, and this mouse's eye is a 12,000-DPI optical sensor. The company claims this sensor has no built-in acceleration, which is just what we want to see in a gaming mouse.
Corsair will be selling the Scimitar RGB for $80 with a 2-year warranty, although there's no word yet on availability.
