We took a look at the landscape of high-performance mice and felt we could do a better job. So we did. The SteelSeries Rivalís performance reigns over the competition thanks to a cutting edge sensor, newly developed switches engineered by SteelSeries, and a suite of tweaks to give you the edge over your rivals.
Advanced Optical Sensor
At the heart of Rival is the Pixart PMW3310 optical sensor. The 3310 promises zero hardware acceleration, offering true 1:1 tracking and precise movements no matter how fast things get during the heat of battle. The CPI is best-in-class with adjustments from 50 to 6500.
Our proprietary SteelSeries engineered switches have a lifetime of over 30 million clicks and are the high-speed conduit between the sensor and mouse clicks. The audible mouse click is subtle, while delivering quick, tactile responsiveness.
When itís time to get competitive you can really dial-in your settings thanks to SteelSeries Engine 3. Adjustable CPI, programmable buttons, polling rate, angle snapping, acceleration and deceleration are among the customizations that will make the mouse perform as you see fit.
It has been many years since we last built a right-handed mouse so we feel Rival is long overdue. We went back to the drawing board and built off classic gamer favorites to make this mouse the ultimate solution in ergonomic feel.
Rivalís shape was molded from some of the most iconic gaming mice of the past. We took great lengths to ensure a comfortable fit thanks to the right-handed orientation, a raised back end, and sleek contours.
Surface & grips
Our soft-touch paint is a unique experience, offering a matte finish while still feeling incredibly smooth. The anti-sweat coating helps to maintain great contact even during intense gaming sessions. The rubber grips are not a sticker, but direct injected molded rubber for better control and grip.
No one wants to do finger gymnastics just to press a button on their mouse. We engineered Rival with ergonomic button position and size so clicks and movements feel natural, quick and donít take away from gameplay.
