Razer is well known for being a master in the field of gaming peripherals and, with an already intimidating variety of mice, keyboards, and headphones, the prolific brand is entering two other contestants in the fray.
The Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed and Basilisk Ultimate are two new gaming mice that will join the existing Basilisk range, although these new players are wireless and incorporate new technology.
Razer HyperSpeed technology was launched with the Razer Viper Ultimate gaming mouse, shortly before these Basilisk mice were revealed. It promises a standard that is “25% faster than any other wireless gaming technology,” with a click latency of fewer than 195 nano-seconds compared to 270, the best in today’s industry.
Similarly, this same technology is more stable and reliable than previous wireless connections. This is because the mouse searches for interference on all available channels every millisecond to change the channel to avoid any delay or stuttering you may encounter.
Razer Basilisk Ultimate
- As the name suggests, the Basilisk Ultimate is aimed at those who seek professional-level performance with their mouse, with a lot of attention to high-quality components in terms of accuracy and durability.
- The Ultimate is equipped with a Focus + 20,000 DPI optical sensor that has 99.6% resolution accuracy and sports optical switches that promise performance grade accuracy but with improved durability due to lack of physical contact.
You can also customize almost every aspect of this mouse, including the functions of its 11 buttons, DPI sensitivity, take-off, and landing distance, acceleration and, of course, RGB lighting, which comes in 14 different zones.
The Basilisk Ultimate is available today in Australia for AU $ 279 with prices and availability from other regions to come and is included with a Razer Mouse Dock to charge and connect your device.
Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed
If the price of the Ultimate made you resist but you’re still looking at a Razer wireless mouse, the Basilisk X HyperSpeed could reach the optimum point.
As mentioned, it has the same HyperSpeed wireless technology but, instead of the Focus + sensor found in the Ultimate, it shares the same 5G 16,000 DPI optical sensor with the famous Death Adder Elite mouse.
It also has mechanical switches instead of optical ones and eliminates any elegant lighting to keep the cost low. However, it can also be connected via Bluetooth to save battery power, which should last 450 hours with a single AA (instead of the 285 hours that a 2.4GHz wireless connection would last).
The Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed is now available in Australia for AU $ 109 with information for other markets to follow.
