Razer unveiled the Mamba HyperFlux at CES 2018 this week, and they have taken an interesting approach to creating a very light, high-performance gaming mouse. They removed the battery. This puts the Razer Mamba HyperFlux at a weight of 96 grams, 11 grams lighter than the Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum (one of the best gaming wireless mice). It’s clear that Razer’s goal was to create the lightest wireless gaming mouse.
So how does it get power?
Through the mousepad. The Razer Mamba HyperFlux only works with a new mousepad called the Razer Firefly HyperFlux, which connects to the Razer Mamba HyperFlux through a magnetic field which transfers power directly to the mouse. But if the mouse is moved away from the mouse mat, it loses power. Hence, the mouse is meant for a high-end desktop setup which would sit in one place, and not for on-the-go use with a gaming laptop.
Adaptive Frequency Technology
The Razer Mamba HyperFlux features the Adaptive Frequency Technology developed by Razer to eliminate lag. It promises wired gaming mouse performance, without wires. What it does is intelligently sync data reporting between the mouse and the user’s computer, by continuously scanning for the lowest crowded frequencies and when it finds a more suitable frequency it jumps to it. The result is a lag-free data transmission between the Razer Gaming Mouse and the PC outperforming other wireless gaming mice, as Razer says. The same technology has been used in it’s earlier released Razer Lancehead.
More Specs, Pricing & Availability
In terms of specs, the Razer Mamba HyperFlux features a 16,000DPI 5GB Optical Sensor along with Nine Programmable Buttons, a 1000Hz Polling Rate for flicks and of course, Razer’s Premium Lighting called Razer Chroma Lighting. Razer Chroma Lighting settings and Button Bindings can be saved to the mouse & the cloud using Razer’s Synapse Pro Software.
Razer Mamba HyperFlux Gaming Mouse & Razer Firefly HyperFlux Mousepad will be sold in a bundle together for $249.99, and the product will be released in Q1 2018.
