Chinajoy 2019 is among the biggest gaming events in the Western gaming calendar. Among the first releases at this event, Razer has launched the Razer Viper at ChinaJoy 2019 in Shanghai.A lightweight, eSports-targeted ambidextrous gaming mouse that features Razer’s 5G Optical Sensor technology for high precision in competitive gaming.This new gaming mouse’s specialty is that it is the first to include the new Razer Optical Mouse Switches.

Different features of the Razer Viper include, Razer Speedflex Cable, and the lightweight structure finessed in a joint effort with eSports experts.The Viper mouse, which will retail for $80, will swap out traditional mechanical switches for snazzy new optical ones.The Viper is designed with competitive gamers in mind and has been tested and endorsed by Team Razer eSports. The Viper debuts the company’s named Razer Optical Mouse Switch on its main left/right buttons.

The Razer™ Optical Mouse Switch utilizes an infrared light beam to register a click, resulting in an industry-leading response time of 0.2 milliseconds. Its instant actuation eliminates debounce and unintended clicks, giving you complete control in execution.

Other eSports players have also lauded it. “As soon as I laid my eyes on this mouse, I already liked it because the shape is perfect for me. The click of the switches feel a lot better, and the cable is really nice and flexible; which is awesome for CS: GO.” said Taco, the MiBR Counter-Strike: Global Offensive professional player.

The company also stated that this technology, which requires no physical contact for signal transmission, grants improved durability over their mechanical counterparts with a rating for up to 70 million clicks.

One thing Razer Inc. perfected is the design, is that it is the lightest mouse it has ever constructed – at 69g. The important part of the plan encouraging the weight decrease is the utilization of a skeletal shell. Foreseeing any stresses over such development, Razer demands that the skeleton “does not settle on quality and strength,” and it has been altogether field-tried by driving eSports players.And offers a comfortable grip allowing for controlled and swift swipes during battles.

It features eight individually programmable hyper response buttons which can be configured via the Razer Synapse 3 software. The mouse features easily accessible macros and secondary functions, allowing for smooth execution of extended moves.

Engineered with 99.4% tracking accuracy and up to 16,000 DPI, the Razer 5G Optical Sensor offers deadly precision. When combined with your physical dexterity and skill, the Razer Viper represents a mouse that achieves a true extension of yourself in the game.

In pursuit of giving every ounce of competitive edge, Razer designed a mouse cable that enables smoother swipes. The Razer Viper features the highly flexible Razer™ Speedflex Cable, bringing unhindered control with minimal drag.

Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s peripherals business unit, stated that the mouse was “designed ground up in collaboration with some of Team Razer’s best eSports athletes,”
