SteelSeries created a new mouse for gamers who require a lot of buttons. The Rival 5 has a 9-button layout with five "quick action" side buttons. The peripheral has a weight of 85g and uses next-gen Golden Micro IP54 switches. SteelSeries also promises a brilliant RGB LED display thanks to 10 RGB LED zones.

Rival 5 uses a custom TrueMove Air sensor developed in cooperation with PixArt. The sensor offers "true" 1-to-1 tracking, 18,000 CPI, 400 IPS, 40G acceleration, and tilt tracking to eliminate unwanted tracking during angled drops, tilt slams, and quick flicks. The mouse ships for 69.99EUR
