Our research and development team quickly realized that what was being offered from peripheral makers like Logitech and Razer were decent and hit the right price point, but were not great and no where near good-enough for the competitive gaming circuit. The central reason why was because of the concessions that had to be made due to their choice in sensors.
Superior tracking accuracy
Professional gamers depend on their gear’s tracking accuracy to perform those amazing super-human, reflex plays. That is why all SteelSeries Rival mice have zero hardware acceleration. The Rival 100’s optical sensor offers gamers true 1:1 tracking accuracy.
Optimized lift-off distance
Unlike gaming mice that reduce tracking performance to achieve a lower lift off distance, the Rival 100 sacrifices nothing by offering the best tracking performance paired with an optimal low lift of distance making it the best gaming mouse in its class.
Important Rival 100 Features with Numbers that Beat the Competition
140 IPS - Inches Per Second or IPS refers to the maximum speed at which they can be moved before their sensors lose their ability to track the movement. If a gamer exceeds the IPS setting the mouse will give off “jerky” movements – not tracking movement consistently. (SteelSeries Rival 100 has a 140IPS, while the Logitech G302 has only 100 IPS - keep in mind that these are both incredibly fast speeds, but it is very possible for gamers to reach past the 100 IPS point rendering mice that do not exceed 100 IPS to not track accurately).
Mouse acceleration is the velocity at which the mouse can register a change in movement.
The Rival 100 will register a change in movement at speeds up to 20gs (or 200 meters per second) and still register your speed; it’s registering the change in speed. This is a relevant number to be aware of in games where flick-shots or reflex plays happen.
What SteelSeries Engine can make this mouse do?
- Map the 6 mouse buttons to custom game controls
- Adjust optical sensor sensitivity for any style and speed of play
- Create custom lighting options from more than 16 million colors
- Create personalized configurations for your favorite games
- GameSense is a part of the new generation of peripherals and real-time, in-game actions - Users can create illumination settings that directly reflect in-game actions as they happen.
