Taste the rainbow at E3 with Razer’s new Mamba mouse

razer opens preorders mamba tournament edition 1
Razer is kicking off E3 by upgrading one of its classic gaming mice, the Mamba. Hitting shelves later this year, the updated Razer Mamba sports Chroma lighting, 16,000 DPI sensor, and comes in two versions, the standard and the Tournament Edition.

Both mice feature an all-new 5G laser sensor that’s optimized for multi-display, along with ultra-high definition monitors. This sensor lets it track as small as 1 DPI increments, a vast improvement on the industry standard of 50, and the lift-off distance can be set as low as .1 mm.

Razer’s Chroma lighting also comes standard on both versions, letting you set your product with up to 16.8 million different colors, and offering you your pick of different visual effects and color shifting patterns. If you have other Chrome devices, the Mamba communicates with them for a beautiful and cohesive look all the way across your desk.


Perhaps one of the most striking new features of the updated Mamba is that it allows you to set the click force of the mouse buttons. Rather than having to settle for whatever pressure the mouse requires, the Adjustable Click Force functionality lets you set the physical point at which the button registers the click, and you can choose from up to 14 different options.

The standard version of the Mamba includes wireless connectivity for approximately 20 hours of continuous gaming on a single charge. The Tournament Edition Mamba strips down the wireless support to calm any concerns over response time, but still supports the same feature set as the standard Mamba.

Both mice will go on sale starting in the third quarter of 2015, with the standard Razer Mamba priced at $149.99, and the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition at a much more appealing price point of $89.99.
