ROCCAT Reveals Savu, King of Optical Mice

Gaming peripheral manufacturer ROCCAT Studios has unveiled a new entry in its lineup of high-end gaming mice: the Savu Mid-Size Hybrid Gaming Mouse. ROCCAT, the company that teased us with the “Isn’t PC gaming dead?” website last week, says the Savu “severely outperforms every gaming mouse in its class.”

Key features:

  • True 4000 DPI optical sensor
  • Easy-Shift[+] technology allowing for advanced button configuration, transforming a 7-button mouse into a 12-button one
  • Lighting system delivering 16.8 million colors
  • Debut of the ROCCAT Achievements Display – or R.A.D. – an application that tracks and rewards a wide range of gaming feats, such as mouse movement, button clicks, scroll steps, etc.

16.8 million colors. That’s just under 16.8 million more colors than my current mouse. And that braided cable is perfect for pet owners — I know one day, I’m going to wake up to find my current mouse’s wire chewed through by my cat.

The Savu’s achievement system is a world first, and while it seems to be a gimmick, no one can deny the power that Achievements hold over gamers — just take a look at a random Steam user’s profile.

The Savu will be showcased for the first time at CeBIT 2012, and further information on this mouse will become available at roccat.org after March 6th.

Hey, is there a left hand design or is “the king” just for right handed mice grabbers?

Looks awesome, but I’ve had the same logitech mouse for ages and hasn’t failed me once. Every year I go to the store with the mindset to buy a new mouse and can never bring myself to do it. This thing might just be the one that changes the course of my mouse purchasing history.
