Gigabyte Intros Aivia Uranium Wireless Gaming Mouse

Gigabyte has introduced the Aivia Uranium, a wireless PC gaming mouse that comes packed with a wireless receiver sporting an OLED monochrome screen, which provides dynamic information like the current DPI setting, the status of the battery charge, gaming profiles, the current wireless frequency and more. This display can even be used to customize macros on the mouse.

"GHOST Macro Station guarantees to provide high-speed macro reading and editing ability via wireless transmission," reads the company's press release. "The live setup system enables you to re-assign macro hotkeys and pre-set the DPI value for each on-the-fly adjustment to meet the present in-game situation without leave- your game."

The specs reveal a twin-eye laser sensor tracking system, a report rate of 1000 Hz, a 1 ms response time, a maximum tracking speed of 150 inches per second, and a maximum acceleration of 50G. The device provides a DPI switch for changing the sensitivity on the fly, a four-directional tilt wheel, and four side buttons, totaling 10 programmable buttons overall. The switch life of the Left and Right click buttons is 10 million times.

"Gigabyte innovatively moves the onboard memory and macro engine to the GHOST Macro Station," reads the company's press release. "Powered by 2 AA NiMH rechargeable batteries, Aivia Uranium supports continuous battery life of over 50hrs in the wireless game plays. For times you actually run out the batteries, simply pull out the charging cable for instant power supply. You can still use the mouse while charging."

Gigabyte's press release said that the GHOST Macro Station handles key-mapping to the mouse without the need to install an application. The DPI adjustable switch also has four settings – 800, 1600, 3200 and 5600 – with 4-stage Led indicators; the 6500 setting is accomplished via software. The GHOST macro engine, which features an intuitive interface, allows users to pre-define and switch between keys or buttons easily to match the latest PC gaming titles.

    Love the ideas Gigabyte comes up with and their willingness to try new things AND sell them. Wouldn't mind seeing some tests done on its latency.

    Wish somebody would copy microsoft's sidewinder x8 side buttons. Until then, I'll stick with my x8.

    I have the Sidewinder x8 as well, and this is hands down the best mouse I have ever owned. I honestly live in fear for the day that it dies on me. It is the only mouse where the side buttons are up and down--PERFECTION. The little magnetic cable to charge is a smart addition, letting me remove/plug back in with a single hand. I love this mouse, and as interesting as the specs are for the Gigabyte one are.... there is just too much that I would lose.

    Is there any mouse that can have its buttons re-mapped to any other button, including keyboard key strokes, per application?

    love my X8 also. only way it could get any better is if they added a 3rd top side finger button. the two vertical thumb buttons plus the 3rd thumb button fixed infront are a priceless set up. switched out the batter for a phillips 2700mha rechargeable and it goes all week with out needing a recharge for an rpg like diablo or rts like supreme commander there aren't any more decent fps games i have tried LAN'ing this with, but with netflix destroying response times across the globe for online playing i can't tell if there is any 'lag' for bf3 due to the absolute destruction of online gaming netflix has reeked upon the planet.
