Aorus creates 8200dpi mouse for MMOs with 16 programmable buttons

first_imgIf you had to name the genre of game that requires the most buttons to play, MMOs would come out on top. A keyboard and mouse are the preferred input methods, but even then there’s an issue of speed and performing set actions as quickly as possible. Aorus aims to help in that regard with a new, extremely fast mouse that somehow manages to incorporate 16 programmable buttons into the casing.The Aorus Thunder M7 USB mouse combines a laser sensor with a report rate of 1000Hz and on-the-fly DPI switching through 800/1600/3200/5600/8200dpi. All the buttons use Omron switches and are guaranteed for 20 million clicks.The available 16 buttons are spread across the left, right, and top of the mouse, but 8 of them fall just above where your thumb rests. Looking at the images I’m having a hard time identifying all 16 buttons. There’s 8 on the left, 5 on top, and 1 on the right. That only makes 14 so there’s 2 more on there somewhere.As this video demonstrates, it’s certainly not a quiet mouse:The included Aorus macro engine allows you to pre-program each button and switch between 5 different gaming profiles at any time. In total, that allows for 70 macros to be stored in memory, which should be enough for even the most avid MMO player.The M7 isn’t wireless, but does ship with a 1.8m USB cable. There’s no pricing stated yet, but I can’t see it being cheap. It’s also a mouse you really need to try out before you buy. Those 8 buttons right next to your thumb may be a revelation, but could just as easily end up being really annoying and easy to hit by accident. If this mouse interests you, search it out for a demo before spending the cash. VIEW PHOTO GALLERY Aorus Thunder M7Aorus Thunder M7Aorus Thunder M7Aorus Thunder M7Aorus Thunder M7last_img
