ROCCAT Nyth Modular MMO Gaming Mouse Review

Inside the Nyth




The Nyth breaks down into three major components, not counting the right side that has to be removed first. There is a ribbon and power cable that connects the upper and lower sections, and the side component will lift off the lower section.





This is a look inside the top component of the Nyth. Here we are looking at the cover for the twelve side buttons, with the release switch on top. We looked close enough to see pad switches at play but left it together for functionalities sake in testing.




While there is an Omron switch used under the left click, we see a black pad style switch which requires medium force to activate, between it and the Omron on the other side.




Just behind the scroll wheel are a pair of TTC white switches. These take about the same force as the rest of the buttons, have an audible click to them, and are used by the side scroll lever.




That 72MHz Turbo Core V2 32-bit ARM processor we spoke of earlier is what we are looking at. This one is made by NXP and is the LPC1346F model. We would also typically look at the sensor as well, but it is buried under the PCB, and we were unable to remove it to gain that view.




Once the Nyth modular MMO gaming mouse is powered up, the default setting is a breathing mode, which also rolls through all of its available colors. We just happened to catch it glowing green, as seen in the ROCCAT Nyth lettering and the ROCCAT logo.




To go along with the lights, your hand is going to be covering most of the time, the heel of the Nyth also sports this thin LED strip. These LED zones can also be programmed separate or to work in sync with various effects.
