What is the difference between the Rival 310 and the Rival 300?
The Rival 310 builds on the legendary shape of the Rival 300, but with a slight size reduction (approx. 1%) to improve ergonomics. The TrueMove3 Optical Sensor, silicone side grips, split trigger design, Omron 50 million rated mechanical switches, and matte finish are all new for the Rival 310.
Why did SteelSeries create its custom optical sensor with Pixart?
Having collaborated with Pixart in the past, we wanted to build upon the success of the Pixart 3360 sensor. We worked closely with Pixart to bring our expert knowledge of sensor technology based on gamers demands, to enhance the 3360 in areas that are required by pro gamers.
What makes the TrueMove3 sensor superior to other sensors on the market?
We are redefining what 1-to-1 tracking means. True 1-to-1 tracking is when moving an exact distance on a mousepad results in the same exact distance on screen. SteelSeries TrueMove3 sensor technology is the first to bring true 1-to-1 up to 3500 CPI, and above 3500 CPI we found the perfect balance of latency and jitter reduction to achieve 1to1 at those higher CPIs.
What makes TrueMove3 an esports sensor?
Four important items combine to make TrueMove3 an esports sensor: true 1:1 tracking, ultra-low latency, advanced jitter reduction and custom SROM/firmware that increases sensor accuracy timing.
How does the Rival 310 compare to the Razer DeathAdder Elite?
The Rival 310 can achieve 350+ IPS at any CPI level selected, while our tests consistently show the DeathAdder sensor performs lower than its stated IPS specification. Combined with guaranteed 50 million click Omron mechanical switches and our exclusive split trigger design, the click feel of the Rival 310 is unmatched. The mouse is lighter than the DeathAdder Elite (90g) yet uses higher quality parts and materials. You will instantly feel the difference. While the Razer DeathAdder Elite only stores your latest CPI setting, the Rival 310 has onboard memory to take all your performance settings with you on the go.
What materials are you using for the side grips to increase durability?
The 310 features the first ever pure silicone side grips on a gaming mouse. The ultra-durable, pro-tested polymer delivers a lifetime of use without signs of wear and tear.
