Vengeance M95 and M65 Gaming Mice
Vengeance M95 and M65 mice are built upon an ergonomic aluminum uni body chassis and fitted with an Avago Technologies ADNS-9800 Laser Stream gaming sensor. The new 8200 DPI sensor provides a 30% boost in tracking resolution versus last generation mice, for increased speed and lethal precision when moving, looking, and targeting. Vengeance M95 mice incorporate new ruggedized, high-precision button switches for rapid triggering and solid durability.
Vengeance M65 is designed for FPS enthusiasts. It features an innovative Sniper button, allowing an instant toggle from fast movement, high DPI-resolution mode down to a high-precision mode for more accurate aiming. Its aluminum body has an adjustable center of gravity to allow gamers to balance the mouse to their preference. The Vengeance M65 is available in three colors-Military Green, Arctic White and Gunmetal Black.
Vengeance M95 is optimized for MMO gamers. It has 15 fully programmable buttons, arranged and tuned for intuitive operation, and on-board flash memory to store macros in up to six profiles that can be switched on-the-fly. An included intuitive Microsoft Windows software utility allows management of macro keys, on-board profiles, and sensor settings to allow gamers to customize the M95 to match their gaming style. Vengeance M95 is available in two colors, Arctic White and Gunmetal Black.
Vengeance MM600 Dual-sided Gaming Mat
MM600 is double-sided mat designed with foundation of a solid piece of 3mm thick aircraft-grade aluminum to provide a flatter, more rigid surface and no-slip rubber corners to minimize slippage during frenzied gaming sessions. Each side of the mat has a high-quality polymer surface that has been tuned to deliver distinct glide characteristics. The smooth-texture side is designed to provide an exceptional high-speed glide, while the heavy-texture side is designed to deliver superior control. Both surface materials have excellent characteristics for high-precision sensors like those found in Corsair’s laser gaming mice.
Ruben Mookerjee, VP and General Manager of the Peripherals Business Unit at Corsair, said, “Our first generation keyboards and mice were designed to translate thoughts into action with ruthless efficiency. We’ve honed that competitive advantage to a new level of precision with the Vengeance K95, M95, and M65, creating next-generation mice and keyboards to help keep gamers at the top of the leader boards.“
