Corsair gets all sensitive with its new M65 Pro RGB's 12k sensor

Feeling like it isn’t keeping up with the Logitechs and Razers of the world, Corsair has been upping the sensitivity of some of its gaming mice in recent months. It upgraded the Sabre a few weeks ago with a 10,000 DPI optical sensor and now the M65 is getting the same treatment. This one, though, is going up to a whopping 12,000 DPI.

Most who have used super-sensitive mice claim that you don’t really need anything beyond a few thousand DPI, even if you’re using multiple high-resolution monitors. Pro gamers even tend to use lower sensitivities as it yields better accuracy — but for those that like super fast movements at the twitch of a hand, the upgraded M65 Pro RGB might be just what they need.

The sensor is still optical, so don’t fret that Corsair has moved over to a laser design. The Pro still supports Corsair’s Utility Engine back-end software, which has received heaps of praise from critics all over the world.

It also features the same shell, made from what Corsair describes as “aircraft-grade aluminum,” which helps keep the weight down to just 115g as standard.

However, if you prefer something a bit heavier, the M65 Pro RGB also comes with the ability to adjust that. On the underside, hidden between the PTFE (unbranded Teflon) feet are a trio of metal pucks, which can be loaded in or taken out of the mouse, providing an adjustable 20.5g of additional weight if you want it.

You can even use it to change the centre of gravity if you sideload the mouse with them.

It also comes with eight programmable buttons and the ability to heavily customize their functions and lighting through the back-end system.

The Corsair M65 Pro RGB will go on sale in April, priced at $60.

This pack of corn puffs hasn’t left my gaming PC — here’s why
A pack of Kuai Kuai sitting on a gaming PC.

In Taiwan, I fell in love. I didn't find a spouse, a pet, or suddenly decide to move my life to the other side of the world. I fell in love with a coconut-flavored corn puff called Kuai Kuai (or "Guai Guai"). And since returning home, I've had an unopened bag of the snack leaning on my gaming PC.

If you're one of the few that knows about Kuai Kuai, you already know what's up. For everyone else, you probably think I'm a little off my rocker. You might be onto something there, but Kuai Kuai has an entire culture around it that I learned about on my trip to Computex this year, and it's been a great way to bring a little piece of Taiwan home with me.

The new Surface Laptop beats the MacBook Air in every way but one
The Surface Laptop 7th Edition on a white table.

The Surface Laptop was always meant to be a proper MacBook Air competitor. It had the sleek design and branding to pull it off, but was always lacking in performance and battery life to compete.

With the move to Qualcomm's Snapdragon X chips and Copilot+, though, there was a renewed hope that the Surface Laptop 7th Edition could not only compete with the MacBook Air M3 -- but actually defeat it. To my own surprise, after spending some time with the device, I'm convinced it may be the best Surface device ever made.
