SteelSeries’ new mouse, the Rival 600, is designed to eliminate an obvious problem for gamers: keeping track of the cursor in mid-air. Sometimes, when a player lifts their mouse off the mat and places it back down, the cursor can jump and skitter across the screen. The Rival 600 compensates for this with a dual sensor system and 1-to-1 tracking that keeps tabs on how high the mouse is lifted — making sure the cursor stays in the same place when it’s put back down.
This isn’t a new feature for gaming mice, but it is a nice addition for the Rival range. As well as this tracking system (which SteelSeries has branded “TrueMove 3+”), the Rival 600 also has customizable interior weights, which users can add or remove to get the desired heaviness they’re most comfortable with. There are eight 4 gram weights inside, so the mouse can be changed to weigh between 96 grams and 128 grams.
The mouse also has a 12,000 CPI, 350 IPS optical sensor, which is the same as the Rival 310 and Sensei 310 models. Rounding off the specs are a soft-touch finish, silicon grips, and a reinforced trigger system. There’s even a built-in processor for saving custom lighting effects, sensitivity settings, and button remapping. The Rival 600 is available now for $79.99 from SteelSeries or Amazon.
