Corsair has packed quite a few features into gaming mouse weighing 100 grams. As the name implies, the Sabre RGB includes four LED-backlit lighting zones that can be set to one of 16.8 million colors. There are eight programmable buttons including two under the thumb on the left side of the mouse and a 1.8 meter (5.9 feet) braided USB cable. The choice of sensor and Omron switches rated at 20 million clicks are traits that competitive gamers should appreciate. The optical sensor tops out at 6400 DPI while the laser sensor can hit 8200 DPI. Corsair is bundling the mouse with CUE software which allows gamers to adjust the DPI, acceleration, smoothing, backlighting, macros, and USB reporting rate (25Hz to 1000Hz). According to Corsair Gaming Product Manager Jason Christian, the Sabre RGB was designed to be a lighter and sleeker mouse that builds upon the company's M65 and M45 series.

The Sabre Optical RGB and Sabre Laser RGB are available now for $60 and $70 respectively. More information along with a chance to win a Sabre RGB mouse, NVIDIA graphics card, and Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel can be found on the Corsair Gaming website.

Id like to see a bigger move toward wireless gaming mice...

I know there are a few, very expensive ones out there already.
But id like to see 1000hz wireless, laser gaming mice to take a bigger part of the market, so that prices start to drop.

But i guess the clueless kids will still think wire is better... even if there was no measurable difference.

There isnt a feelable difference already if you look at good/expensive wireless mice.

Wireless technology leads to more weight, nearly 150g which are insane for a gaming mouse.
Real gamers avoid these heavy weights

this is so true! had a MX 800 for 7 years and now i'm on a Razer Mamba which sucks (batteries die within a second), was way too expensive and can only be used wired....

I have a Razer Mamba (I think it's the original one, I've had it for years now) and I never liked the wireless mode, it never felt as reliable as the wired mode. Wired always felt smoother, but who knows if that's all in my head. After all I did run a 50' Ethernet cord down the hallway just so I could avoid Wi-Fi in this congested wireless area (so many Wi-Fi networks around here!) :-p.

Real gamers don't have a tramp stamp on their mouse.
