Razer is breaking with established wisdom and has announced a wireless gaming mouse. The Razer Lancehead features a proprietary “Adaptive Frequency Technology” (AFT) to ensure a stable and consistent connection. Of course, there is a wired version for those who would rather have the comfort of a cable.
The Razer Lancehead sports a 5G laser sensor that tracks up to 210 inches per second. On the other hand, the wired Lancehead Tournament Edition is capable of tracking twice as fast at 450 inches per second. Probably highlighting the vast difference between wireless and wired gaming peripherals.
Tracking speed is pretty much the only thing that differentiates the two versions of the Lancehead. Both still have Razer’s mechanical mouse switches and an ambidextrous grip. Chroma lighting is also now part of the standard package.
Those who buy the Razer Lancehead will also be invited to join the beta test for the new Razer Synapse Pro. Razer’s new peripheral management software introduces the option for storing device settings on the mouse itself; allowing people to carry their settings with them. At the moment, Synapse settings are stored in the cloud and must be synced through the internet when the peripherals are connected to a new computer.
The wireless Razer Lancehead will be available in May or June for RM699; while the wired Lancehead Tournament Edition is already on sale for RM389.
