Corsair has launched the new Corsair Glaive RGB gaming mouse. The pointing device combines precision 16,000 DPI optical sensor technology and comfort with its trio of switchable magnetic thumb grips and ergonomic contoured profile. It’s currently available for US$69.99 (AU$94.99).

There is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all gaming mouse. There are users that prefer wider palm grip over finger-tip control – and vice versa – with every style imaginable in between. Corsair’s new mouse features a radical contoured shape and three interchangeable magnetic grips, making it adapt almost instantaneously for a customised fit. With options like a rubberised grip, smooth curves or a wide thumb rest, users can cherry-pick whichever makes them comfortable as each grip is optimised to allow easy access to the Glaive’s half-dozen programmable buttons.

The new mouse is armed with a custom PMW3367 gaming grade optical sensor, which was developed in collaboration with PixArt. Gamers can set sensitivity between 100 to 16,000 DPI native resolution for precision tuning. Up to five custom DPI settings can be saved to the device’s 8 MB on-board memory, and switching between profiles can be done with a touch of a button. Omron switches rated up to 50 million clicks boost performance while the 1,000 Hz / 1 millisecond USB refresh rate sees to it that every move and click registers promptly.

“With three-zone programmable dynamic RGB lighting, Glaive RGB lights up the desktop as players light up the scoreboard,” says Corsair. “With logo, side bar and front lighting zones customisable in Corsair Utility Engine (CUE), choose from a host of amazing preset lighting profiles, download hundreds of user-created lighting schemes, or synchronise the lighting with any Corsair RGB keyboard to make the mouse your own.”

Using the CUE software can also unlock in-depth macro control to fully remap any of the device’s six buttons to complex multifaceted macros in addition to mouse or keyboard commands. All of these are saved to the on-board memory and can be accessed from any computer with no software installation required.

The Corsair Glaive RGB gaming mouse is now available to purchase worldwide in black and aluminium variants. It carries a US$69.99 (AU$94.99) price tag and comes with a two-year warranty.
