This week, CORSAIR is expanding on its range of gaming mice with two new additions, the Ironclaw RGB wireless and the Glaive RGB Pro. The Ironclaw wireless uses Corsair’s new Slipstream technology to unlock new levels of wireless performance, meanwhile the Glaive RGB Pro focuses on customisability, with three interchangeable side grips.
First up we’ll focus on the Ironclaw RGB Wireless. As mentioned earlier, this mouse uses Corsair’s Slipstream wireless technology, which uses frequency hopping WiFi signals to avoid signal interference, lowering latency to less than 1ms and increasing the wireless range all the way up to 33 feet. This mouse comes with up to 50 hours of battery life and a detachable USB cable allows you to continue using it while recharging.
Other features include an increase to ten buttons spread across the mouse, each of which can be programmed for different functions, the main mouse switches are from OMRON, so they’ll be reliable for years to come. Extra RGB lighting zones have been added to the mouse and the Pixart Optical Sensor is capable of up to 18,000 DPI, so you get a ton of range for sensitivity settings.
The GLAIVE RGB PRO is the mouse for those who prefer a dedicated, wired connection over wireless. It uses the same 18,000 DPI Pixart optical sensor as the Ironclaw, Omron switches, three-zone RGB lighting and a rugged aluminium scroll wheel. The side-grips can be swapped out, so you can pick your preferred design and texture. Finally, the Glaive also has seven programmable buttons and room to save five sensitivity settings on the mouse, which you can switch between at the press of a button.
Both the Ironclaw RGB Wireless and the Glaive RGB Pro will be launching at the £70 mark here in the UK.
KitGuru Says: Corsair has made some solid gaming mice over the years. Slipstream sounds like promising tech too. Are any of you shopping around for a new gaming mouse this year? What do you think of the latest from Corsair?
