Razer Launches New Wireless Mouse Geared Towards Gaming

Razer added another mouse to its line of gaming peripherals with the Lancehead wireless mouse. The Lancehead uses a 2.4 GHz frequency, but it’s paired with Razer’s own adaptive frequency technology (AFT), which is said to improve data transfer from the mouse to the user’s system.

The company is putting out an additional SKU, which is a wired version under the “Lancehead Tournament Edition” moniker. The wireless model carries a $140 price tag, while the wired one costs $80.

The new mice are equipped with a 5G sensor capable of 16,000 DPI, full Chroma lighting customization, and four programmable side buttons (two on the left, two on the right). The Lancehead also uses Razer’s own mechanical mouse switches–made in partnership with Omron–that can sustain 50 million clicks.
