   DreamHack was concluded last week in Sweden and although unlike CES, CeBIT and Computex it's not a place where you will get to check out emerging technologies and new products it's still a great place for gaming peripherals manufacturers (not to mention gamers obviously) to promote all their latest models from mice, keyboards and headsets up to chairs, PC cases and LCD screens. We didn't actually attend DreamHack this year but judging from the sheer amount of gaming peripherals we've received lately compared to what we had at the same time last year things must have been quite more interesting for all the people that did. Corsair has also released quite a few gaming peripherals lately including the GLAIVE RGB Gaming Mouse which we've been using for roughly 2 weeks now.


   Founded in 1994, CORSAIR supplies high-performance products purchased primarily by PC gaming enthusiasts who build their own PCs or buy pre-assembled customized systems. The company's award-winning products include DDR3 and DDR4 memory upgrades, computer cases, PC cooling products, gaming headsets, gaming keyboards, gaming mice, power supply units, USB flash drives, solid-state drives and system monitoring and control devices.


   For the brand new Glaive RGB Gaming Mouse Corsair decided to use their custom PMW3367 optical sensor which they have developed in close cooperation with PixArt and was also used with their Scimitar PRO RGB MOBA/MMO Gaming Mouse (review here). This optical sensor has a maximum native resolution of up to 16.000DPI (dots per inch) adjustable in single DPI increments, has a maximum refresh rate of 1000Hz and can be calibrated for ultra-accurate and high-speed tracking on any mousepad. Other features of the Glaive include a total of 6 programmable buttons, OMRON switches for the primary buttons (up to 50 million clicks), Kailh white switch for the DPI selection button (also acts as a sniper button just like in the case of the Schimitar Pro), three-zone dynamic RGB color customization (16.8 million color selection), 5 DPI presets, 32-bit ARM Cortex-M0 processor with 128kB of onboard memory and 3 interchangeable magnetic thumb grips.
