Inside the Pulsefire Surge RGB

To open the Pulsefire Surge RGB, both feet need removing so that you can gain access to the four screws. The top of the mouse contains a PCB for three of the buttons, and it as well as either side of the RGB light strip is connected to the lower half via ribbon cables. The lower section houses the main PCB, where all of the important things are.

The PCB from the top half of the mouse offers a pair of red TTC switches for the side buttons. There are soft to actuate and provide a click when pressed. The white TTC switch at the top backs the DPI selector button, and it takes much more force to actuate, and the click is more pronounced.

While ALPS makes the scroll wheel assembly, which delivers the highly segmented feel, the main left switch is found to be a blue Omron switch. The pressure required is comparable to any Omron switch, but as you can see, these are marked for fifty-million clicks.

HyperX also employed NXP to deliver the MCU for the Pulsefire Surge RGB> The LPC11U14F/201 is an ARM Cortex M0 processor, and it is a 32-bit unit, much more capable than what the Pulsefire Surge RGB requires of it.

We are not sure we have ever seen this optical sensor before. Since it offers 16,000 DPI rather than everyone else's 12,000 DPI, it makes sense that this is the first time we look at the PixArt PMW3389DM-HX sensor.

To the right of the scroll wheel is the second blue Omron switch which backs the right button on the mouse. The pressure needed requires a firm press on the button, and a satisfying click is reported once it is actuated.

With the power to the HyperX Pulsefire Surge RGB, we can see the rainbow of RGB LEDs surrounding the mouse from within the ring. We also see that the HyperX logo is backlit, but the scroll wheel is solid, and not lit in any way.
