Razer has introduced a new 4G dual sensor system, which takes advantage of both an optical and a laser sensor for enhanced tracking accuracy. Razer claims the sensor has ten times faster surface detection than any one from the previous generation.

The company has implemented the sensor system into its popular professional gaming mice, starting with the newest incarnations of the Razer Mamba ($130.00 or €130.00) and Razer Imperator ($80.00 or €80.00). Both will be available at razerzone.com this month, and worldwide next month.

The mice calibrate themselves to the surface you're using so that they are primed to optimally track your swipes more rapidly and accurately. The dual sensor system also lets you determine the cutoff height for tracking to stop when the mouse is lifted from the surface. This is useful for gamers who pick up their mice to accommodate wide swiping motions, such as in low sensitivity FPS games.

The flagship pride of the Razer brand, the Razer Mamba (pictured left) features 2.4GHz gaming-grade wireless technology, a 6400dpi 4G dual sensor system, and longer battery life. Here are the product features:

  • Gaming Grade Wireless Technology
  • 6400dpi 4G Dual Sensor System
  • Dual mode wired /wireless functionality
  • 1000Hz Ultrapolling /1ms response time
  • Multi-Color Lighting
  • Up to 200 inches per second* /50g acceleration
  • Approximate size: 128mm x 70mm x 42.5mm
  • Battery Life: 16 hours (continuous gaming usage)

The Razer Imperator (pictured right) delivers exceptional ergonomics that reduces strain during extended gameplay, features the new 6400dpi 4G dual sensor system and an improved rubberized side grip. Here are the product's features:

  • 6400dpi 4G Dual Sensor System
  • Rubberized contoured thumb grip for added control
  • Ergonomic right-handed design
  • Adjustable side buttons
  • Razer Synapse Onboard Memory
  • Up to 200 inches per second* /50g acceleration
  • Seven independently programmable Hyperesponse buttons
  • On-the-Fly Sensitivity adjustment
  • Approx. size in mm; 123(l) x 71(w) x 42(h)

"I'm really excited by the leaps and bounds we've come in developing the world's most precise and advanced sensor technology, Robert "RazerGuy" Krakoff, President of Razer USA, said in a statement. "We worked closely with many pro-gamers to fine-tune the sensor under intense gaming conditions, ensuring it achieved a level of tracking accuracy that met their high-level demands. The mouse is core to any gaming setup. It's where our roots are, when we pioneered competitive gaming and developed the world's first gaming mouse. Today, it is still one of the key areas for our R&D and it's quite exciting to bring such a significant sensor evolution to gamers worldwide."
