A skilled gamer can perceive and respond to even the most chaotic of situations with perfect control over micrometers of movement; making insanely quick swipes across a mouse mat yet stop at an exact point to land a perfect headshot. It’s this ability to match the human capacity for performance that makes a good mouse sensor not just a technical achievement, but the highest level of craft. With the Razer 5G Advanced Optical Sensor, experience the pinnacle of mice performance and showcase the full extent of your skills.
We teamed up with Pixart Imaging to continually improve mouse components
To build a gaming mouse that was fully optimized for performance, we provided dedicated findings and research to Pixart Imaging—an industry-leader in image sensors. We contributed insight and feedback from both consumers and Esports athletes, as well as test scenarios and use cases. This helped to remove limiting factors of performance, enabling Pixart to create sensors that allow gamers to reach new gaming limits.
Acceleration can be defined as how quickly you can go from zero to max speed. This quick change in speed results in a force known as G. The higher the G, the quicker the change in speed. A rollercoaster caps at 6.3 G, while a jet fighter measures 9–10 G. The Razer 5G Advanced Optical Sensor can go up to 50 G. Even a superhero will have a hard time hitting this limit.
The speed of a mouse is measured in inches per second. This translates to the maximum distance that a mouse can cover per second before its ability to continue tracking is surpassed. When the Razer Diamondback 3G was released, it featured a revolutionary 40 IPS at the time. This can be likened to one quick swipe across your mouse mat. Today, the Razer 5G Advanced Optical Sensor measures up to 450 IPS—that’s equivalent to swiping 36 feet—the length of a room in one second.
You might be familiar with Burst Mode—a standard option for most smartphone cameras—which allows you to snap several shots in seconds. A mouse optical sensor has something similar in the form of a light source that illuminates the surface while a built-in camera captures images rapidly. These images are then sent to your computer, processed, and translated into mouse movement. A DSLR or high-speed camera can only go shoot up to 6 images per second, our mouse sensor can go up to 15,000 FPS—that’s literally 15,000 images in one second.
