Razer announced their new proprietary Razer™ HyperPolling Technology, debuting in the new Razer Viper 8KHz mouse, the world’s first esports gaming mouse with true 8000Hz polling rate. Razer HyperPolling Technology has true 8000Hz polling rate, ushering the new era of gaming responsiveness, speed, and reliability.
Currently, top gaming mice support polling rates of up to 1000Hz. With faster PCs and higher refresh rate monitors, higher polling rates can remove micro-stutters, improving gameplay experience.
Razer HyperPolling Technology utilizes a high-speed USB microcontroller to surpass current industry standard (1000Hz) with a true polling rate of 8000Hz. This allows the Viper 8KHz to send up to eight times more data each second, effectively reducing input delay from 1ms to just 1/8th of a millisecond. Razer HyperPolling Technology not only provides the fastest click latency, but also keeps the click-to-click variance to an absolute minimum – making it superior to other leading gaming technologies.
Tarik “tarik” Celik, CS:GO star of Evil Geniuses said, “This technology is perfect for games that require high precision and responsiveness like CS:GO.”
