Roccat to Unveil High-End Gaming Mouse at Computex, E3

The upcoming Kone XTD Max will upgrade the 6000 dpi laser sensor to an 8200 dpi unit and come with a 72 MHz ARM processor, as well as the "world’s most advanced Tracking & Distance Control Unit."

Roccat CEO and founder Rene Korte described the mouse as a "supreme gaming weapon custom-built for the most demanding warriors." It will include several features such as the company's Easy-Shift[+] technology, which lets users double the functions of their buttons and wheel, as well as Roccat Talk, which allows the XTD Max communicate with other Roccat peripherals such as keyboards.

The mouse will be on display at E3 and Computex, according to the manufacturer, but you will not be able to buy it before September. No word on pricing yet, but the Kone + currently sells for around $115, which should be a guideline for the new model.

    Nothing to see here, just typical "we have over 9000 dpi" marketing. Next on the line, prebuilt desktop with 300g of ram.

    It is, when Razer's mice are priced from $25 - $99 -- Canadian -- with their most expensive mice being licensed for SWTOR, TRON, and SCII, which run from $129 - $139.

    Although, I'll never buy a Razer product again, the mouse stopped working properly in 2009 and I only bought it in late 2008, then replaced it in early 2010, and the keyboard -- I bought the keyboard at the same time as the mouse -- last year, which I replaced around September.

    So, down the road I'll look more into Roccat's products.
