Corsair M65 RGB Ultra Gaming Mouse Review
Peter Donnell / 1 month ago
The Corsair M65 has been around since the beginning of time, or at least, it makes more comeback tours than Mötley Crüe! There was the Corsair M65 RGB Elite Gaming Mouse three years ago, Corsair Gaming M65 Pro RGB Optical Mouse five years ago, Corsair Gaming M65 RGB Laser Gaming Mouse seven years ago, and the Corsair Vengeance M65 FPS Laser Gaming Mouse nine years ago, and the original Corsair M60 that started it all a full decade ago. Trust me, that’s not all of them, they’re just the reviews I can remember writing! However, it’s clear this mouse has a lot of fans, and Corsair keeps making it better each time. One thing is for certain, the features and specifications have come a long way in the last ten years and the M65 RGB Ultra is a long way from it’s much more humble beginnings.
Corsair M65 RGB Ultra
One of the most significant updates has to be the new Corsair Marksman sensor. It can deliver a class-leading 26,000 DPI at up to 50G acceleration, making it one of the most powerful sensors on the market today. It was developed with PixArt to ensure its high performance and accuracy, and can even be adjusted from 100 DPI all the way to the maximum 26,000 in 1 DPI increments. Combined with 8000Hz polling, and this mouse promises to be pretty swift. Beyond that, you get the latest Omron Optical Switches with the Corsair Quickstrike design, the aluminium frame, that legendary sniper button, weight tuning and much more. Really, this mouse seems to have a little bit for every gamer!
What does stick out, however, is the Sensor Fusion Control system that allows for gestures by tilting the mouse… that’s certainly something I’ve not seen before.
