The second generation of Razer Optical Mouse Switches has been developed with better tactile feedback, making each click have a more pleasant taste and sound than ever before. Reducing the debounce delay used in traditional mechanical switches, lightning-fast actuation is embedded by HyperPolling Technology to present the lowest latency inputs, helping gamers achieve response times at a professional level. Razer Optical Mouse Switches second generation switches made can at least last up to 70 million clicks.

While the Razer Focus+ Optical Sensor has a resolution accuracy of 99.6% and is best in class, so its movements follow consistently. With the unique intelligent function of the sensor, combined with Razer HyperPolling Technology, players will experience an ultra-smooth, stutter-free cursor movement with a high degree of accuracy so that they can do headshots to win the game.

Razer also updated razer Synapse 3 software that makes players can configure 8 buttons. They can also choose macros or profiles that can store 8KHz Viper configuration profiles. Users can save up to 5 profiles at a time.
