Inside the ZEUS P1 RGB
The screws to open the Zeus P1 are found under each of the feet, and once the three screws are removed, we gained a look inside of the mouse. At this point, we would just like to point out the offset weighting system found in the top half, where the metal bar runs down the left side of the mouse, of course, that is once the top half is inverted back onto the lower section.
The PCB found in the top half of the Zeus P1 is where the switches are located for the side buttons, and even the scroll wheel is attached to it. The scroll wheel is backed by a TTC switch, but as for the other two switches located here, they are red Huano switches which are soft in their activation and emit the slightest of clicks once activated.
The switches under the DPI selector buttons are also Huano red switches, and have the same feel and report as the pair we found on the side of this PCB.
Under the left main button of the mouse, we find these blue cased, white switch, Huano switches. These are rated for 20 million clicks, they are stronger, requiring a bit more force to activate, and report with a more defined click than the secondary buttons do.
The optical sensor used to deliver the 1600 to 12,000 DPI range of tracking is this PIXART PMW3336DM-TZQU sensor. We find this sensor to track well at any DPI level, and with such a wide range of DPI settings, it is easy to find a perfect level of control to suit your specific needs. Most of our usage was at DPI level 4, where it is tracking at 6200 DPI.
The first of a pair of MCUs in control of the Zeus P1 RGB is what we have here. This chip is a Holtek HT68FB560, which is an 8-bit MCU.
The second of the pair is this Holtek HT82F553 8-bit MCU. The best we can figure is that one of these is used for tracking and possibly the onboard memory storage, while the other is used to control the lighting capabilities of the Zeus P1 RGB.
The last view inside of the Zeus P1 RGB brings us to the blue cased, white switch, Huano switch used under the right main button. Again, this is slightly stiffer than the red versions, the report is louder, and it also offers a 20 million click lifespan.
Be default, the lighting is not that impressive with the Zeus P1 RGB, but with the HERA software, that can be addressed. Currently, the bands along the sides are set to blue and will cycle through all of the colors, but the logo on the heel is red and will pulsate on and off at this time.
From another angle, we can see that the bands of light on the side had changed into a teal color when this image was taken, but the scroll wheel is not that brilliant in color display. The wheel is clear and should display more brightness, but in our sample, the lighting is not directly applied, so you get more of a bleeding of light rather than a direct source for it.
