Razer Unleashes the Deathadder Elite Gaming Mouse & Gigantus Mouse Mat


The world’s most accurate sensor, the new Razer Mechanical Mouse Switches and the legendary DeathAdder ergonomics favored by eSports athletes all over the world put Razer’s latest eSports gaming mouse in a league of its own
Sydney, Australia – Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the latest iteration of its multi-award winning iconic gaming mouse, the Razer DeathAdder Elite. The Razer DeathAdder has won more “Best Gaming Mouse” awards than any other gaming mouse on the planet – and the new Razer DeathAdder Elite is designed to continue its reign as the best gaming mouse in the world.

Razer’s flagship gaming mouse is now equipped with the world’s best optical sensor. The all new Razer 5G Optical Sensor tracks up to 16,000 dots per inch (DPI) at 450 inches per second (IPS). Both marks set a new standard for the industry. What’s more, the Razer DeathAdder Elite has the highest measured resolution accuracy (RA) ever recorded in a gaming mouse at 99.4 percent. This makes the mouse the fastest, most sensitive and most accurate gaming mouse available today.

The Razer DeathAdder Elite is also the first Razer mouse to come with Razer Mechanical Mouse Switches. Co-designed and produced with leading global mouse switch supplier, Omron, the new switches are optimized for the fastest response times. Durability has been increased to an industry-leading 50 million clicks. An improved tactile scroll wheel and the addition of DPI buttons add further functionality to the DeathAdder Elite.

“The world’s best gaming mouse just got even better,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “We’ve improved just about everything on the Razer DeathAdder Elite.”

“There’s never been a more comfortable mouse, and now, there isn’t a more accurate mouse,” says Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok. “It all starts with the Razer DeathAdder Elite for old pros or aspiring competitive players.”



The Razer Gigantus is the newest edition to Razer’s collection of enhanced mouse mats specifically focused on eSports. It features an ultra-large surface area, an optimized gaming surface and enhanced thickness.

The Gigantus has been added to the lineup as Razer wants to provide tournament grade gear for professional eSports athletes and other competitive players. The Razer Gigantus is the ultimate eSports mouse mat and was created based on direct feedback from professional athletes on Team Razer.
