When you think gaming peripherals, the first companies to come in mind are Razer, Roccat and Steelseries.
While each one has its own ideals and performance charts, gamers look for either the best of the best, or the best for less! Everyone has their loyalty towards a company. It’s like asking someone what cellphone carrier they are with and what they think of others!
Back to the point, CES is THE place to check out new technologies, especially when it comes to gaming PCs and hardware. During the first hours of the show, Roccat announced a brand new mouse and a new keyboard planned to satisfy the best players out there.
12,000 DPI in a Roccat Mouse
Roccat announced that their upcoming line of gaming mice will feature a brand new and exclusive optical sensor. Dubbed the “Owl-Eye”, this new Roccat-only technology is said to “translate mouse movements on screen with 1:1 accuracy,” says The Verge, referring to the company’s marketing material. “The sensor provides a level of control so natural and innate that it totally bridges the gap between use and game.”
The new line coming out will feature 12,000 DPI with 50G acceleration and 250 IPS motion detection. In terms of cheer numbers, those are great stats. Razer achieves the highest numbers with the DeathAdder Elite, which hits 16,000 DPI. Even so, Roccat recommends players to set the Owl-Eye to anywhere between 400 and 3,000 DPI. Anything higher, to be honest, is way too sensitive!

Important Keys Are More Sensitive
When you game using your keyboard, most games utilize the following keys” Q, W, E, A, S, and D. In my opinion, R and F should also be included in the list. Introducing the Isku+ Force X, the latest Roccat keyboard featuring Force X technology. The Roccat patented pressure-sensitive feature focuses on the keys above (set aside for F and R).
Powerful mechanical keyboards can be pricey. With tags ranging anywhere between $125 and $200, on average, performance hardware aren’t as available to every budget. The Isku+ Force X, however, is said to offer the same membrane keys as the Isku FX, but with specific pressure points. That said, Roccat’s new keyboard is set to cost around $100.
