CORSAIR has unleashed the new SCIMITAR PRO RGB gaming mouse, which is based on the same award-winning Key Slider 12 side-button design as the original SCIMITAR RGB.
The new SCIMITAR PRO RGB adds in a comprehensive set of hardware playback options for both programmable buttons and RGB lighting effects by allowing users to save up to three profiles of keyboard shortcuts and RGB lighting right to the mouse itself. “Engineered to revolutionize MMO and MOBA gameplay,” CORSAIR stated, “the SCIMITAR PRO RGB has everything gamers need to conquer quests, win rounds and defeat the competition, all at the click of a button.” It comes pre-loaded with three profiles of common shortcuts for MMOs, MOBAs, and productivity, with each of the 17 buttons able to be fully remapped in the CORSAIR Utility Engine.
The aforementioned Key Slider system allows for the 12 mechanical side macro buttons to be repositioned by up to 8mm, so that gamers can keep every key within reach. It also features a custom gaming grade 16,000 DPI PIXART sensor, which is adjustable in as little as single DPI increments utilizing the CORSAIR Utility Engine.
Here are the official specifications:
