SteelSeries has unveiled its new gaming mice. The Rival 650 Wireless (opens in new tab) model is available for $119.99, and the Rival 710 wired gaming mouse (opens in new tab) is up for grabs for $99.99.

Let's talk about the Rival 650 (opens in new tab) first. It features SteelSeries' TrueMove3+ dual sensor system, which means there are two sensors, the additional one exclusively for tracking lift-off distance. That means more precision. For low latency and a consistent wireless connection, the Rival 650 has a 2.4GHz wireless system with 1ms polling. It also features fast charging; five minutes will give it three hours of battery life, whereas just 15 minutes gets you over 10 hours of gaming time.

There are 256 different weight combinations to suit your play style, and you'll get eight 4g weights to customize it further. It's compatible with SteelSeries Engine software (opens in new tab), which lets you customize the lights, receive Discord notifications, and more. You can pick one up now (opens in new tab) over at Amazon for $119.99.

Next up we have the Rival 710 wired gaming mouse (opens in new tab). It uses tactile alerts for immersive gaming, while the customizable OLED display gives you on-the-fly notifications and further personalized options. The mouse itself is fully modular, as is its cable system, and the sensor and back cover can be personalized too. SteelSeries Engine (opens in new tab) integration means you can easily and quickly access sensitivity settings and button mapping options, receive notifications from compatible software, and more. Grab yours now (opens in new tab) for $99.99.

  • I wish other mice makers would match the hyper-scroll mode on Logitech's high-end mice. The ability to free scroll is such a big point of convenience for me on large sites/Excel files that it keeps me from ever looking at the competition. It's the only thing one company seems to offer over any of the others that present a real functional advantage to me. The rest is OLED displays and LEDs and overblown DPI sensor counts.
