Ambidextrous Razer Viper gaming mouse has an optical switch

by Kelvin

Razer is clearly a company that is synonymous with games. The new Razer Viper is not only an ambidextrous gaming mouse, but also has a new Razer Optical Mouse Switches that offer faster actuation speeds.

In fact, Razer claims Switch The new optical mouse offers three times the actuation speed of a traditional mechanical mouse switch. The optical switch takes the physical contact necessary to send the signal out of the equation, resulting in a higher actuation speed.


Traditional mechanical switches send electrical signals through metal contacts, creating a residual reflection effect that can produce many signals. To ensure that only one click is recorded, a bounce delay is used, resulting in slower response times.

With Razer optical switches, no physical contact is required to send a signal. By using infrared light passing through the shutter to turn on electrical signals on the computer, the switch responds instantly to any finger pressure, ensuring that every action is performed in accordance with the player's wishes.
