Razer Viper 8KHz Fastest Gaming Mouse Revealed
Razer makes really impressive peripherals for computers and especially for gaming. Now they revealed the Viper 8KHz mouse and said that it is the quickest gaming mouse in the world. The mouse uses the new Razer HyperPolling Technology to advanced from the standard 1000Hz polling rate all the way to 8000Hz all of this means now it can move 8 times the data each second and dramatically reducing input delay to 1/8 of a millisecond. That is very fast.

Latency is a very important part of gameplay that significantly affects the overall gaming experience – and yet, it is overlooked by many companies that focused for too long on increasing DPI. Unlike DPI, lower latency benefits everyone from casual to professional players by shaving off important milliseconds from the overall reaction time. During our testing and development process with a large pool of competitive players and mouse enthusiasts, many reported significantly smoother and more responsive input when using the HyperPolling Technology featured in the new Viper 8KHz esports gaming mouse.
The more active polling rate also means that your cursor will be more updated and smoother. Tarik “tarik” Celik of CS:GO team Evil Geniuses fame said:
This technology is perfect for games that require high precision and responsiveness like CS:GO.
And Nikolay “Nikobaby” Nikolov from the Dota 2 team Alliance agreed and added:
I’d instantly tell the difference between 1000Hz and 8000Hz.
Now with the HyperPolling Technology, the Viper 8KHz also highlights 2nd-gen Razer Optical Mouse Switches and Razer Focus+ Optical Sensor for advanced performance. You’ll get improved tactile feedback and find much higher accuracy in your mouse actions.
With this mouse, you will get the 8 programmable buttons on the Viper 8KHz, too. You can buy yours now through Razer.com or from stores with an MSRP of $79.99, which is not that bad.
