The Razer Viper 8k is the world’s fastest computer mouse. It has a so-called polling rate of 8,000 Hz, which is the fastest response speed ever for a computer mouse.
Razer can reach the extreme response speed thanks to the company’s new HyperPolling technology in a self-developed control circuit for USB.

Normally, USB gadgets have a maximum response speed of 1,000 Hz, which means that data is sent to the computer’s processor a thousand times every second. Razer has thus found a way to increase data transmissions to eight times that speed.
According to Razer, the advantage is that so-called “microsputs” when the player touches the computer mouse disappear and that there is a much smoother movement on the screen. By reaching 8,000 Hz, the movements will also be more in sync with today’s super-fast screens.
Other exciting details about the Viper 8k are that the computer mouse has a super fast sensor of 20,000 DPI, click delay of only 0.125 milliseconds and second generation optical switches under all buttons.
