CARLSBAD, Calif. – Razer™, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the launch of the Razer DeathAdder Chroma gaming mouse.

The Razer DeathAdder Chroma features the renowned ergonomic design of its precursor. It is equipped with a 10,000 DPI optical sensor that is able to track lift-off distance as precise as 1 mm on most surfaces, including glass table tops. The upgraded sensor is capable of mouse movement speeds up to 200 inches per second with 50 G acceleration, ensuring exacting accuracy and organic fluidity onscreen.

Together with Razer Synapse: Stats & Heatmaps, the Razer DeathAdder Chroma provides gamers precise details such as game time, button presses, distance moved and even how much overall pressure was exerted while gaming. This incredible amount of technical tracking data coupled with the upgraded ultra accurate sensor allows gamers to tweak the Razer DeathAdder Chroma to their individual play style and further increase their accuracy more than with any other mouse on the planet. 

“The Razer DeathAdder Chroma is the world’s best gaming mouse favored by eSports athletes everywhere,” says Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO. “Our Synapse software continues to add value to our hardware products, and this is the latest example of that. Validated by professional eSports athletes, the iconic ergonomic design and the ability for gamers to hone their accuracy make the Razer DeathAdder Chroma the perfect mouse for any play style.”

The DeathAdder Chroma joins the BlackWidow Chroma and Kraken 7.1 Chroma that come with the option of 16.8 million customizable colors and a range of effects through Razer’s cloud-based hardware configurator Razer Synapse. Chroma allows the device to sync lighting colors and patterns and comes with an open SDK that enables game developers to integrate advanced lighting effects based on in-game events such as a base being under attack and much more.
