Rapier V1 and V2

Gaming mice from Verbatim offering "3,200dpi" and "acceleration of 20G".

With its two high-performance gaming mice Rapier V1 and Rapier V2, Verbatim is now setting the standards in the gaming accessories sector too. Gamers can enjoy a resolution of up to 3,200dpi and customizable weighting while experiencing acceleration of 20G – currently among the fastest the market has to offer. Available in stores in time for Christmas they will retail for around £24.99 and £ 34.99 (RRP). And to enhance performance even more, Verbatim recommends its Rapier Gaming Precision Pad

Verbatim is now gearing up for battle in the gaming accessories market through the unveiling of the Rapier V1 and Rapier V2. The mice make controlling computer games even more realistic and exciting than previously possible. Featuring the latest technology, these gaming mice have speeds of up to 3,200dpi and yet are also ultra-precise, delivering an acceleration of 20G with 40ips (V2) and 65ips (V1). This puts the mice among the fastest on the market. To enrich the experience even further, gamers can customize the mice with up to seven weights on the V2 and five on the V1, thereby allowing them to cruise through any fantasy world with ease.

The supplied software gives gamers the opportunity to save individual settings for each and every game. There are also three macro settings, which can be used, for example, for continuous shooting or running in first-person shooters. The gaming mice are powered via the USB connection, which is gold on the V1 thus providing an even better connection.

“Computer games are becoming more and more realistic and challenging. With the high-quality technology of our mice, gamers can overcome every challenge, making for even more fun during games.” says Kai Miroschnik, Business Development Manager, Verbatim EUMEA HDD.

Rapier V2 and Rapier V2 can also be optimised further with Verbatim’s Rapier Precision Gaming Pads. The specially textured surface give gamers even more control. The gaming pads are just 0.5mm thick and have an anti-slip coating on their underside to ensure a perfect grip.
