With the new and much promising Ryzen 7 CPUs by AMD finally released our guess is that it will not be long before many gamers, enthusiasts and professionals (emphasis on the latter) will be looking to either upgrade their systems or build new ones. Still how many times have you seen people building new high-end systems primarily for gaming without however spending nearly enough on gaming peripherals? Well I’ve seen it more than once (and will probably see it many more) so it always feels nice to have a bunch of brand new gaming peripherals arrive in our lab for us to test. We can't of course neglect all our other review sections but March should be filled with reviews of gaming keyboards, mice and headsets so do stay tuned if you're interested. The first of those reviews is about the just released Revenger Optical Gaming Mouse by our friends over at COUGAR (and yes once again we're among the first people to get our hands on it).
COUGAR products are designed by COUGAR GERMANY, a professional R&D engineering team and COUGAR is part of the “HEC/COMPUCASE” Group.

The Revenger Optical Gaming Mouse by COUGAR is based on the award winning and very popular PMW3360 Optical/LED Sensor by Pixart which offers a high resolution of up to 12.000DPI (dots per inch), up to 6500 fps (frame rate), 1000Hz polling rate, speed of up to 250 IPS (inches per second) and up to 50G acceleration. The Revenger also uses OMRON switches for the primary buttons (up to 5 million clicks), has 512Kb of on-board memory which allows it to store up to 3 profiles and comes ready with a 2 zone multi-color (RGB / 16.8 million colors) backlight system. All six of its buttons are fully programmable and worth pointing out that the DPI selection button also doubles as a trigger button for quick reaction shots (almost like the sniper button we've seen in other gaming mice). In terms of shape the Revenger follows the typical palm design/grip we've seen with numerous models this past decade so my guess is that this will also be a good thing for most gamers around (unfortunately the Revenger is primarily at least a right handed mouse).
