There's nothing better for enthusiasts and gamers than to finally play a game you've been waiting for years to get released in front of a large screen coupled with a high-end system and a good gaming mouse (providing the game is not filled with bugs). Now as some of you know the highly anticipated Max Payne 3 by Rockstar games got released a couple of weeks ago and since 3rd person shooters require accuracy and speed (especially Max Payne 3 with its slow motion moments) just like 1st person ones I’ve been spending quite a few hours with it in order to test all the latest gaming mice and pads in the market (unfortunately it has quite a few bugs). So today we will be checking out the brand new Kinzu V2 Pro Silver Special Edition mouse by SteelSeries.
From day one, SteelSeries has been focused on making professional gaming gear that provide meaningful benefits to gamers of all skill-level, with the most demanding being those gamers whose lively hood depends on the performance of our products. We believe, as most gamers do, in winning, not trying! What originally began as a small two-person operation in Copenhagen back in 2001 has become a global leader in professional gaming products. SteelSeries recognized the need for superior, high-quality professional gaming gear that would give players a competitive edge. Fast-forward to today, and we've come a long way since our first glass mousepad. We have global offices in North America, Europe, and Asia, providing an integrated portfolio of products designed specifically for gaming. Fueling our growth is you, the gamer!
Just last week we checked the latest KANA Black gaming mouse again by SteelSeries which actually performed quite well for a mid-end unit especially due to its convenient design and size so since SteelSeries launched both models almost at the same time and since they also look quite the same i really wanted to check and see just how different they could be when used and what better way to do that than spend a few more hours over Diablo III and Max Payne 3 (by far my 2 favorite games of 2012 up until now). Specs-wise the Kinzu V2 Pro uses almost the same optical sensor as the one found in the KANA black featuring 3600 FPS (frames per second), 3200 CPI (counts per inch), 3.7 Mega pixels per second, a maximum acceleration of 30 G and a maximum polling of 1000Hz. Now the reason i said almost the same optical sensor is because the one found in the KANA Black is capable of 130 IPS (inches per second) compared to the 65 IPS of the one in the Kinzu V2 Pro. Can that affect the performance of the Kinzu V2 Pro? Lets find out.
