The new mouse delivers as much as 40 percent higher tracking accuracy and up to 33 percent faster movement tracking speed compared to competing mice.
SteelSeries worked with sensor manufacturer PixArt to create a custom optical sensor specifically engineered for the Rival 100 mouse. The 3059-SS optical gaming sensor is capable of adjusting between 8 CPI and 4000 CPI (counts per inch), reads 143 inputs per second, and detects acceleration as fast as 20g.
The sensor itself is not accelerated in any way, and it's capable of true 1:1 precision tracking. SteelSeries said it doesn't matter how fast you move the mouse; it will always stop tracking when it stops moving. The company also said the Rival 100 is able to offer a low lift-off distance without sacrificing tracking accuracy.
