Corsair Unveils Its Most Advanced Gaming Mouse Yet

It's all about dat DPI. 


Don't be cross with Corsair's new gaming mouse. It's extremely sensitive.

The M65 PRO RGB is the company's highest-ever dpi gaming mouse, packing a 12,000 dpi optical sensor, precision switches, weight tuning, and more. It's a riff on Corsair's previous M65 mouse, beefing up the original model considerably.

Aside from the 12,000 dpi optical sensor, the mouse chassis itself is aircraft-grade aluminum with its own dedicated sniper button as well as the Corsair Utility Engine (CUE) that can be used to configure buttons further as well as macros. The mouse will also utilize Omron switches, rated for 20 million clicks.

You can pick up the mouse right now for an MSRP of $59.99 via Corsair's website, but right now you can only get it in black. The M65 PRO RGB White is going to be releasing next month, if that might end up matching your setup a little better. I'm interested in giving the mouse a try, but the Roccat mice I've been rocking have been exceedingly useful.

      That's crazy dpi!

      I can't wait to try out the mouse/keyboard from ozzie's contest. My current g500s mouse buttons are starting to double click.

      $60 seems reasonable, kinda? I like the thought of an aluminum body. I've been using a Razer Naga Hex for ~3 years or so now and I wouldn't want to give up the 6 thumb buttons, personally.

        biggest problem with the m65 design is the size, they are a lot smaller in your hand than you expect based on pictures. The bottom of it end about at the palm of your hand so if you are used to a large mouse your whole hand can fit on they take some getting used to.

        Glad they went with an optical sensor in this version but 12k DPI is just not needed. I tend to run my mice at like 800 DPI.

      I like how many of the newer mice are coming out around 50 bucks instead of 80.
      Still like my xornet 2 aka cm storm spawn 3.0
