MSI has updated its gaming gear roster and launched the Clutch GM60 and Clutch GM70 gaming mice on Wednesday. Each new product boasts of an ergonomic design and comes with two different sets of side grips and an additional top cover for personalised comfort and custom fit. Both mice will be made available globally in July.

The new Clutch GM series mice are optimised for extended hours of gameplay. MSI bundled its latest gear with two different pairs of side grips and a top cover so users can customise them according to their liking. They are also easily interchanged thanks to the Taiwanese electronics company’s magnetic design.

Adding to the GM60 and GM70’s aesthetics and usability are the dragon-scale patterns on the sides that improve grip and mouse control. Of course, a gaming mouse wouldn’t be complete without RGB lighting. Each product’s illuminating spectacle is provided by MSI’s RGB Mystic Light, which likewise allows users to personalise effects and pick out the colours they prefer.

The GM60 can only be used with a cable while the GM70 offers more flexibility with its wired and wireless capabilities. The USB cable comes with a switch at the bottom of the device, which should help avoid any unexpected disconnections.

The GM60 boasts of an Avago PMW 3330 gaming-grade sensor while the GM70 equips a cutting-edge Avago PMW3360 optical sensor. Users can easily change DPI values by using the DPI switch or MSI’s software for better gameplay. Each mouse has at least eight buttons that can be easily programmed using the Gaming Centre app while an ALPS Encoder scroll wheel promises precise and effortless movement.

“[Each] mouse is built with high quality materials to ensure a reliable gaming experience,” according to MSI. “The main buttons are equipped with Omron gaming switches, which are rated for over 50 million clicks for an almost inexhaustible amount of headshots, spell casting or simple double-clicking.”

The MSI Clutch GM60 and GM70 gaming mice are set to be released worldwide in July. MSI has yet to reveal official pricing details so stay connected with IBTimes Australia for updates.
