Just over 4 years after the release of the original M65, Corsair has released another new M65 upgrade, called the M65 RGB Elite. It contains Corsair’s most advanced optical gaming sensor yet with a whopping 18,000 DPI sensitivity, while it is also lighter than its predecessor, weighing 18g less. It still boasts some fantastic features, such as fully customisable RGB LEDs, an adjustable weights system, and the ability to fully remap all 8 of the mouse’s programmable buttons.
