AORUS Intros Thunder M7 MMO Gaming Mouse

Peripheral maker AORUS revealed a new gaming mouse on Thursday called the Thunder M7 MMO. As the name indicates, the company had MMO/MOBA gaming in mind when designing this gadget. However, the company chose to keep the design simple, eliminating the plethora of buttons as seen on competing MMO gaming mice.

"The AORUS Thunder M7 is specifically designed for MMO gamers, who emphasize on emitting accurate and fast attack commends at the battlefield; therefore, AORUS developed the best allocation of the MMO hot-keys with great effort and time to bring the most ergonomically mouse for the gamers," states the press release.

The new mouse includes 16 programmable buttons, eight of which are located by the user's fingertips (thumb, index) on the left side. There are also buttons for changing the dpi on the fly, ranging from 800 dpi to 5600 dpi. Thanks to the built-in AORUS Macro Engine, users have up to five different profiles, equaling up to 70 macros that can be programmed.

According to the specs, the mouse uses Omron switches that promise up to 20 million clicks. The laser sensor supports an 8200 dpi resolution and a 150 ips tracking speed, ensuring smooth movements in multi-monitor setups and high-resolution monitors.

The spec list also shows a report rate of 1000 Hz, a frame rate of 12,000 frames per second, a maximum acceleration of 30g, and a six foot USB cable. The overall size of this mouse is (L)116 x (W)70 x (H)44 millimeters.
