A key feature of the Viper is the use of Optical Mouse Switches. By using an infra-red signal instead of a mechanical switch, the technology removes the need for a debounce delay and raises the actuation speed by 300 per cent. This can mean the difference between victory and defeat in the fast-paced world of competitive gaming.

The Razer Viper also uses Razer's own 5G Optical Sensor, which increases the speed at which the mouse pointer can continue to track accurately. The 5G sensor boasts an advertised speed of up to 450 inches per second with an accuracy of 16,000 DPI.

The Senior Vice President of Razer’s peripherals business unit, Alvin Cheung, commented: "The Razer Viper has been designed ground up in collaboration with some of Team Razer’s best Esports athletes," noting that "Viper delivers the high-performance precision and control needed to succeed in any of today’s competitive games."

Everything about the Razer Viper has been developed with the dedicated gamer in mind, from the lightweight ambidextrous chassis to the eight programmable buttons. The Viper is designed to be nimble and responsive whether you use it left or right-handed, weighing in at a surprising 69g.

Cable drag is reduced significantly by the addition of Razer's Speedflex cable, a highly flexible cable with a low-friction coating that lets it slip and slide easily over any surface.

Another useful addition of the Razer Viper is the eight programmable buttons and on-board DPI memory. The buttons are customisable with macros so that you can easily perform complex actions with a single click. The memory allows you to set your mouse up with the ideal sensitivity for your style of gameplay.
