Razer Basilisk Ultimate and Basilisk X HyperSpeed wireless mice are out

Posted on Friday, November 08 2019 @ 12:28:07 CET by

Razer rolls out two new Basilisk series wireless gaming mice; the Basilisk X HyperSpeed and Basilisk Ultimate. Both models feature HyperSpeed wireless technology and the Basilisk Ultimate stands out thanks to its 20k dpi sensor and optical mouse switches.
Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the launch of the Razer Basilisk Ultimate and the Razer Basilisk X HyperSpeed gaming mice. Both are joining Razer’s ever-advancing wireless mouse family and offer the best-in-class wireless technology with Razer™ HyperSpeed.

Faster and more reliable wireless performance
Both mice are powered by Razer™ HyperSpeed, a wireless technology that is 25% faster than any other wireless gaming technologies*. It has also been tested and proven by top esports athletes, holding its own in the most intense and unforgiving arenas.

With the lowest click latency in any wireless mouse technology, Razer™ HyperSpeed produces the fastest transmission speed to register swipes and clicks instantaneously. The improved Adaptive Frequency Hopping of Razer™ HyperSpeed provides a perfectly lag-free wireless connection, constantly scanning frequency channels for any interference and seamlessly switching across channels in real-time.

“With the Basilisk Ultimate, we have combined the fastest wireless technology with even more customizable features than its predecessor. As for the Basilisk X HyperSpeed, it supports the highest battery life in any wireless gaming mouse,” said Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer’s Peripherals Business Unit. “Both mice are perfect for gamers who want full wireless control and responsiveness.”

The Razer Basilisk Ultimate is equipped with the same Focus+ 20K DPI Optical Sensor as the Razer Viper Ultimate. On top of having the highest sensor specifications available to-date, it features new intelligent functions like Smart Tracking, Asymmetric Cut-Off and Motion Sync for greater tracking accuracy.

Optical switches for greater reliability and speed
The Razer Basilisk Ultimate is fitted with Razer™ Optical Mouse Switches. They require no physical contact to send electrical signals to the PC, eliminating the need for debounce delay and causing zero corrosive effects. Ultra-fast and durable, these switches withstand the rigors of competition while delivering the speed and precision players demand.

The Razer Basilisk Ultimate also allows up to five on-board memory profiles, so users have instant access to their personal settings wherever they are. With refined wireless power efficiency, the mouse can run at peak performance for up to 100 continuous hours. Similar to the Razer Viper lineup, the Razer Basilisk Ultimate is improved with smoother PTFE mouse feet to aid users in executing fast flicks. The mouse is bundled together with the Razer Mouse Dock that can indicate the current battery status or charging level. Gamers can also enjoy the mouse in wired mode with the included Razer™ Speedflex Cable. Simply plug it into the mouse dock’s USB-A input for full control and minimal drag.

Personalized lighting and control

The ergonomic Razer Basilisk Ultimate boasts 11 programmable buttons, including the renowned multi-function pedal for extended controls where users can switch between game functions or settings with speed and ease. Fitted with 14 Razer Chroma RGB lighting zones, each LED can be individually programmed in Chroma Studio, perfectly illuminating gameplay. For personalized tactility, users can also adjust the scroll wheel resistance to their preference via a dial below the mouse.
