Gaming enthusiast Razer launched a new product on Thursday: the Razer Lancehead. The company says its latest pointing device is “the world’s most advanced wireless gaming mouse.” It boasts of the brand’s own Adaptive Frequency Technology and promises tournament-grade performance.

The latest Razer mouse has a 5G laser sensor that offers accurate 16,000 DPI, 210 inches-per-second (IPS) tracking with 50 G acceleration. It features the company’s own Adaptive Frequency Technology (AFT) and hybrid on-board and cloud memory. The Lancehead also sports a contemporary ambidextrous design.

“Razer’s advanced AFT wireless technology ensures industry-leading transmission stability by not only syncing data reporting perfectly between the mouse and the user’s system, but also connecting to the strongest interference-free frequencies within the 2.4 GHz band and adaptively hopping only when necessary,” says the gaming company. “The result is lag-free data transmission between the Razer Lancehead and PC that outperforms every other wireless gaming mouse.”

The new mouse is the brand’s first device to run on the soon-to-be launched Razer Synapse Pro (Beta). With the all-new unified configurator, users can save mouse settings straight to the pointing device and also to the cloud via the enhanced memory feature. A gamer can access his or her profile and have the mouse set up the same configurations exactly like the last time it was used on whichever computer and even on offline mode.

The Lancehead also equips Razer Mechanical Mouse Switches, which are developed and made in collaboration with Omron. The new switches can supposedly endure up to 50 million clicks. What’s more, two DPI buttons offer users the ability to change sensitivity on the fly even in the middle of gameplay.

The new gaming mouse also comes in a wired Tournament Edition variant. Just like the wireless model, the Lancehead Tournament Edition has the same advanced optical sensor, mechanical mouse switches and memory feature. Both variants are powered by Razer Chroma technology, which delivers more than 16 million customisable colours and an array of effects and game-incorporated reactive lighting.

“The Razer Lancehead Tournament Edition is equipped with an eSports-grade optical sensor with true 16,000 DPI and a tracking speed of 450 IPS,” declares the San Francisco, California-based company. “With a resolution accuracy of 99.4 percent, the Razer Lancehead Tournament Edition delivers pinpoint accuracy in the most intense gaming situations.”

The Razer Lancehead wireless gaming mouse will be available globally in June for US$139.99 (AU$189.99). The wired Razer Lancehead Tournament Edition variant, on the other hand, is currently available for US$79.99 (AU$109.99).
