We've got to say that this wasn't exactly unexpected. After Kingston Technology and HyperX started expanding beyond RAM, flash drives and SSDs into the world of gaming peripherals, we had to figure that they'd keep expanding. Seeing how much we love the Cloud gaming headsets, and how popular the Alloy FPS gaming keyboard has become, we have very high hopes for the new HyperX Pulsefire FPS gaming mouse.
Winner of the red Dot Design Award for 2017, the HyperX Pulsefire FPS boasts a PixArt 3310 sensor for accurate tracking, Omron switches for fast response times, and an ergonomic design for continued comfort over extended gaming sessions. It's a mouse optimized for first-person shooters, but you can naturally use it for whatever you want.
There are four DPI presets ranging from 400 to 3200, depending on your preference. That's perfect for quickly switching between the needs of a precision sniper and a faster run-and-gun kind of scenario. You can use it with your choice of palm or claw grip too. The HyperX Pulsefire FPS gaming mouse starts shipping today for about $50.
