SteelSeries has announced two new mice. The Rival 310 and Sensei 310 use the same sensor for which the manufacturer has partnered with PixArt. Both are similar, with the Sensei being symmetrically shaped while the Rival is for right-handed ones.
The name of the sensor is TrueMove3. This is an optical copy that does 100 to 12000 DPI, with between 100 and 3500 DPI one-on-one tracking according to the manufacturer. This would make the sensor excellent for e-sports, according to the mice maker. Further specifications are 350+ IPS, an acceleration of 50G and a polling rate of 1ms.
The right-hand Rival 310 weighs 88.3 grams and measures 127.6 x 70.1 x 41.98 mm. The plastic housing has a light, rough, matte coating that has to cover fingerprints. Mechanical Omron switches are used for the buttons, two of which are on the thumb, and one additional button for the scroll wheel. In addition, RGB lighting was considered in two zones. Whoever chooses the Sensei gets two extra buttons for the left hand thumb. The material usage and switches are the same as the 2 meter long cable. This model weighs slightly more – 92.1 grams.
