Razer's DeathAdder has been a solid-selling gaming mouse for about three years now. So, the gamer-friendly company has decided it is time for a little upgrade.
Previously, DeathAdder had a capable 1800dpi sensor on it -- which is good, but not as high-end as it once was. So Razer is upping the ante by nearly doubling the sensitivy of the sensor, with a 3500dpi infrared unit.
Besides this sensor upgrading, the update of the DeathAdder will also bring a better, tangle-free braided cord.
“The DeathAdder is undoubtedly one of Razer’s best selling gaming mice,” says Robert “Razerguy” Krakoff, President of Razer. “To date, the Razer DeathAdder has served the gaming community for a good 3 years and with all the advances in sensor technology, we put our sensor scientists and engineers to task to imbue it with the most precise infrared sensor in the world – but at the same time maintain the specially designed form factor that gamers have come to know and love.”
The DeathAdder 2.0* is available today directly from Razer's website, and will make into hardware stores near the end of this month. It retails for about $60 USD.
