Roccat Kone Gaming Mouse
Simon Telford / 7 years ago
The company Roccat, have been producing some impressive products recently, although this is not one of their latest products we still expect it to be outstanding. Although there is now a successor to this mouse it was based entirely on this device and could quite possibly be just an expensive upgrads which tend to be a fairly typical ploy by many companies to get you to spend more money, as they entice you in with the entry model and then hope you like it enough to buy the more expensive model so they get you to buy 2 of their products. For this reason and others, we are taking a look at the original Roccat Kone not the Roccat Kone +.
Roccat produce a variety of devices and are especially well known for their headset the Roccat Kave but they do produce a good 20 different products encompassing keyboards, mouse pads, mice headsets accessories and even a notebook to boot. Their products can now also be found in a long list of retailers in this country including high-street shops such as: PC World, WHSmith’s and Curry’s. This in itself does not constitute a successful brand but does show that they are becoming readily available and aren’t just limited to the internet.
The Roccat Kone is one of those futuristic mice that still look as if it ought to be classed as a prototype. The list of technologies incorporated is quite impressive and in fact it has its own CPU that runs at a surprising 72 MHz which up till a year or two ago was more power than in most mobile phones. To show you the real power of this mouse take a look at the features and specifications below:
- True 3200dpi laser sensor
- TCU Tracking Control Unit

- 16-bit data channel; 7080fps; 6.4 megapixel, 20g acceleration
- 72MHz TurboCore processor unit
- 128kB memory, update-/flashable
- 1.65m/s(65 inch per second)
