The Rival by Steelseries uses an Optical sensor from Pixart, specifically the PMW3310H, providing a DPI/CPI range of 50 to 6500 CPI. This results in a tracking speed of 200ips, and a maximum acceleration of 50G. It uses a USB connection with a 2m cable. It weighs in at 128g grams with the cable and is approximately 133 x 70 x 40 (LxWxH).
We took a look at the landscape of high-performance mice and felt we could do a better job. So we did. The SteelSeries Rival's performance reigns over the competition thanks to a cutting edge sensor, newly developed switches engineered by SteelSeries, and a suite of tweaks to give you the edge over your rivals.
It has been many years since we last built a right-handed mouse so we feel Rival is long overdue. We went back to the drawing board and built off classic gamer favorites to make this mouse the ultimate solution in ergonomic feel.
