Were you looking to upgrade your gaming mouse? Great! Mionix just revealed one of their latest gaming mouse additions and it might just be for you. We saw a lot of manufacturers naming their gear after ancient gods, mythical creatures and so on, so it won’t come as a surprise the Mionix named the mouse CASTOR after the brightest star in the sky.

CASTOR comes with the PMW-3310 optical sensor, giving it amazing accuracy, smooth tracking, and a maximum speed of 215 IPS. If you wanted more DPI, CASTOR’s sensor seems to take care of that with its 10,000 DPI range along with 3 adjustable DPI profiles and that’s not all! The new lift-off distance calibration feature is said to work with the Surface Quality Analyzer Tool and take into account the lift-off height to find the best left-off distance with optimized tracking.

But are the new features too much for the CASTOR to handle? I admit, there is a lot this mouse can do, but with its 32-bit ARM processor, it will do all of what it’s expected of it and not even compromise the sensor tracking one bit. It even lets gamers set up 5 different macro profiles and comes with 4 layers of rubber coating, along with optimized textured side rubbers help achieve maximum grip. So this really makes it one of the top gaming gear mouse available and a must-have for any pro-gamer out there.

One thing to point out though. The CASTOR seems to be dedicated towards right-handed gamers, having its ergonomics set for right-handed ring- and pinky-finger groove, which is unfortunate since there are a lot of left-handed gamers out there. Even so, Mionix said it will make the CASTOR available worldwide in September for a price tag of €69.99. More information on the gaming mouse can be found over at Mionix’s website here.
