The new Basilisk Ultimate wireless gaming mouse packs HyperSpeed wireless connectivity technology that Razer should see home to the most ultra-low-lag gaming mouse on the planet. There are 14 RGB lighting zones that can be tweaked using Razer's own software.

Razer packs its own Focus+ optical sensor that packs 20,000 SPI precision, a 650 IPS maximum speed, and 50G acceleration. Razer even uses an SoC that includes its own features that will improve accuracy and reduce response time of the wireless mouse to give you the fastest wireless gaming mouse experience on the market.

The packed-in SoC has Smart Tracking that automatically calibrates the sensor when it's used on different surfaces, Motion Sync will align polling rates on the host PC, receiver, and sensor in order to reduce input lag, while the Asymmetric Cut-off will improve precision of Razer's new Basilisk Ultimate wireless gaming mouse by setting an accurate lift-off distance.

Razer uses its own HyperSpeed wireless tech that uses a 4GHz band and its own specific USB dongle that features Adaptive Frequency Hopping that will see it scanning interconnection channels and then switching to the one with the lowest interference. This little tick box that Razer proudly ticks means that you'll get the lowest lag possible.

There are also 11 programmable controls to tweak, sensitivity can be adjusted on-the-fly with a unique paddle on the left side of the mouse while right-handed gamers will be the only ones to benefit from Razer's new Basilisk Ultimate gaming mouse.

Razer will be selling its new Basilisk Ultimate wireless gaming mouse on its own for $150, while if you want the mouse plus the dock, that'll cost you $170. If you buy the dock separately (why would you do this) it would cost $50 on its own.
