Razer, the Leading Lifestyle Brand for Gamers, Announces New Proprietary Technology Today Razer HyperPolling Technology, first available in the new Razer Viper 8K mouseHz, the first esport mouse with a true polling rate of 8000Hz. Razer HyperPolling technology surpasses the industry standard of 1000Hz by delivering an 8000Hz polling rate for performance at the speed of thought, ushering in a new era of responsiveness, speed and reliability in gaming.
Currently, most gaming mice support a polling rate of up to 1000Hz, and although manufacturers have made efforts to make mice more precise and responsive, little attention has been paid to how often data is generated. clicks and positions are transmitted to the PC. With faster PCs, screens with higher refresh rates, a higher polling rate can eliminate annoying micro stuttering, significantly improving gaming performance when a fraction of a second can be the difference between losing or winning.

“Latency has a huge part at play and significantly affects the overall experience – and yet it is often overlooked by many companies that have focused for too long on increasing DPI. Unlike DPI, lower latency benefits everyone from the casual gamer to the pro by drastically reducing the overall reaction time by several milliseconds. During our testing and development processes with a large number of competitive and enthusiastic gamers. mouse, many noticed significantly smoother input and greater responsiveness when using the HyperPolling Technology of the new Viper 8K esport mouseHz. “
HyperPolling technology, at least 8 times faster – the science behind speed
The polling rate is the frequency at which a device transmits data to the PC, with an industry standard of up to 1000Hz (1000 times per second). Razer HyperPolling Technology uses a high speed USB microcontroller to exceed this standard and deliver a true 8000Hz polling rate. This allows the Viper 8KHz send up to 8 times more data every second, significantly reducing the response time from 1ms to only 1/8th millisecond.
Razer HyperPolling technology can send more frequently updated data to better match a monitor’s refresh rate. Consequently, the delay between the last report and the rendering of each frame on the screen is lower than with a polling rate of 1000Hz, making the cursor positions more precise and smoother.
Higher polling rates can decrease response time, reducing micro-jerks and sudden cursor jumps, allowing smoother and more precise cursor movement on the screen. Razer HyperPolling Technology not only offers the fastest click latency, but it also keeps click-to-click variance to an absolute minimum, making it superior to other leading gaming technologies.
« This technology is perfect for games requiring high precision and responsiveness like CS: GO »Says Tarik“ tarik ”Celik, CS: GO player at Evil Geniuses. Nikolay “Nikobaby” Nikolov from the Dota2 Alliance team agrees, stating “ I will instantly tell the difference between 1000Hz and 8000Hz ».
Outperform the competition with the Viper 8KHz
The Viper 8KHz is the first Razer device to feature Razer HyperPolling technology, marrying 3 key innovations in a single device to create the world’s fastest competitive gaming mouse. Razer Optical Mouse Switches 2th generation and the Razer Focus + Optical Sensor, combined with Razer HyperPolling technology, result in a gaming mouse with unmatched speed, precision and responsiveness.
Razer Optical Mouse Switches 2th generation have been improved with better tactile feedback, making each click more satisfying than before. By eliminating the bounce delay used in traditional mechanical switches, light speed actuation is complemented by HyperPolling technology to deliver the lowest possible latency, helping gamers achieve pro-level reaction times. Ultra-fast and durable, the Razer Optical Mouse Switches 2 th generation are designed to last 70 million clicks.
The Razer Focus + Optical Sensor delivers industry-best 99.6% accuracy, so even the finest movements are tracked consistently. Thanks to the unique intelligent sensor functions, combined with Razer HyperPolling technology, gamers will benefit from super-smooth, jerk-free cursor movements for a very high level of precision – crucial for setting the headshot to victory.
Top notch performance. Down to the smallest detail.
This revolutionary performance and technology are bundled into a solid, ambidextrous chassis that weighs just 71 grams. The Viper 8KHz is fitted with 100% PTFE pads for smooth glide and features the SpeedFlex cable to ensure maximum drag for smooth sweeps.
With Razer Synapse 3 software, gamers can configure the 8 programmable buttons, assign macros or secondary functions, and save their configurations to the Viper 8K’s advanced onboard memory.Hz. By storing up to 5 profiles, players have instant access to their personal configurations wherever they are.
The Viper 8KHz is a clear improvement on its predecessor. It incorporates most of Razer’s technological innovations to achieve an unprecedented level of performance.
