If you’re in the market for a new gaming mouse, Razer’s updated Abyssus V2 may be right up your alley. As the successor to the original Abyssus, this new mouse sports a similar – but sleeker-looking – design along with several new features.
One of the most highlighted features of the Abyssus V2 is its all-new “true” 5,000dpi optical sensor. Although Razer did not explicitly state the sensor used in this mouse, the company claims the Abyssus V2 will be able to provide good sensitivity and responsiveness; users can also cycle between five different dpi settings with the button below the mouse wheel.
As an ambidextrous mouse, Razer mentioned that the Abyssus V2 is suitable for any type of grip different users prefer; these include claw, palm, and fingertip grips. Naturally, both left and right-handed users should be able to use the mouse effectively as well.
However, as the Abyssus V2 is designed to be a budget-oriented mouse (it’s one of the most affordable mice offered by Razer), it doesn’t offer Chroma lighting. Instead, it features a more conventional three-colour lighting: green, blue and teal. Like with most Razer gaming mice, both the Razer logo and mouse wheel of the Abyssus V2 are illuminated.
The Razer Abyssus V2 is now available for pre-order on the company’s Malaysia online store at RM239; that’s RM40 more than the original Abyssus, which goes for RM199. According to Razer, the Abyssus V2 will start shipping sometime this month.
