CORSAIR M65 PRO RGB FPS GAMING MOUSE

Introduction

The Corsair M65 PRO RGB is the latest iteration of the M65 FPS gaming mouse. The most notable change being the upgraded internals. Corsair has chosen a PMW3360 sensor which bumps the M65 PRO RGB up to a 12K DPI capability. The M65 PRO RGB is a purpose-built peripheral aimed at the FPS gaming crowd and comes with a rich feature list that is competitive with all current peripherals on the market. We have spent time with the M65 PRO RGB in the past and were pleased with the results. We have included an up to date walk through of the Corsair Utility Engine to show the progress made in those areas. Let’s take a quick look at how the M65 got it’s start, the specifications list, then jump right into some closeups.

Blast From the Past

The M65 RGB got new buttons, a new logo and the ever-loved RGB treatment. The M65 PRO RGB is without doubt the finest version with its subtle design changes and 12K DPI sensor upgrade.

Razer Blade 15 Base Edition (2021)

2020 will go down as a horrible year for getting hold of new graphics card. I still know people who ordered the new Nvidia Series 30 graphics card at launch in September 2020 and still have not been able to receive it. One avenue to get a new Series 30-card might be to go the laptop route instead as it is much easier to get hold of those. Nvidia recently released their RTX 3060, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080-GPU’s for laptop and today I am testing the Razer Blade 15 Base Edition that comes with a Intel i7-10750H, a 15” 165 Hz QHD-screen and a RTX 3070.

  1. If they would just remove that annoying sniper button on the side of the mouse it would be perfect.

    • How is it annoying? It’s a programmable button. If you don’t use it just don’t press it. It sits flush with the thumb rest.
