Razer has launched an updated version of their popular DeathAdder gaming mouse. The revised pointer will ship with a new 4G infrared sensor capable of achieving up to 6,400 DPI resolution for improved performance and precision, among other improvements.
The gaming accessory provider says the new DeathAdder maintains the same iconic right-handed ergonomic shape as the original but it has been enhanced with built-in textured rubber side grips to provide more control during intense matchups. Sorry, lefties – looks like you’re still out of luck here.
President of Razer USA Robert “RazerGuy” Krakoff said the company didn’t fix anything that wasn’t broken but instead focused on enhancing and optimizing the proven merits of the DeathAdder. He said Razer used next generation technology and ergonomic tweaks to make the perfect gaming mouse even better.
Rather than rehash all of the features, we’ve reproduced the specs list for you below.

The DeathAdder was originally released in late 2006 and has since garnered quite a following based on its ergonomic design and precision accuracy. It was the first gaming mouse from Razer to use 3G infrared technology and led the way for other successful mice including the Lachesis, the Mamba and the Imperator.
The revised Razer DeathAdder is available as of writing in the US and in Europe for $69.99 and EU €69.99, respectively.
The Razer Imperator features a clickable scroll wheel, right and left click buttons, two DPI adjustment buttons below the scroll wheel and two thumb buttons on the left side of the unit. On the bottom we find three large Teflon mouse feet, a profile selector button, a slider labeled "front" and "back" and the 3.5G laser sensor.
