SteelSeries Tuesday introduced two new gaming mice including the new Rival 650 wireless gaming mouse and the Rival 710 wired gaming mouse complete with TrueMove3+ technology that uses not only the SteelSeries TrueMove3 as its primary sensor, but also includes a second optical sensor that exclusively tracks lift-off distance.

“We’ve truly revolutionized the wireless gaming mouse with features that have never been seen in the category, like the precision of the TrueMove3+ sensor and fast charging technology,” said SteelSeries CEO, Ehtisham Rabbani.  “The Rival 650 is a gaming mouse designed for competitive gamers who want the most accurate sensor available and unlimited physical and technical customization options."

Retailing at $119.99, the Rival 650 uses the Quantum Wireless 2.4GHz wireless system with 1,000Hz (1ms) polling for incredibly low latency and to ensure a strong, consistent wireless connection.  SteelSeries says it's also the first wireless gaming mouse to feature fast charging when connected to a USB port that supports the technology.  Depending on the mouse’s RGB lighting profile, the company claims a five minute charge will give the mouse more than three hours of battery life with a 15 minute charge providing more than 10 hours of battery life.

The Rival 650 also comes with customizable side-loaded weights that allow users to tune their center of gravity with 256 different weight combinations for the perfect balance for any grip or play style.  The mouse also features 12,000 CPI, 350 IPS optical sensor and is compatible with SteelSeries Engine Software, which unlocks an arsenal of Engine Apps that not only allow users to customize its eight-zone RGB lighting, but also access Discord and GameSense for chat notifications, in-game events, and more.

SteelSeries' Rival 710 builds on the original design of its Rival 700 and adds the high performance and accuracy of the TrueMove3 sensor and 60-million click switch durability.  Like its predecessor, the Rival 710 still uses tactile alerts for immersive gaming and an OLED display for notifications and customization.  The mouse is also fully modular and comes with a modular cable system.  Furthermore, both the sensor and back cover can be customized or exchanged with other variants available on SteelSeries’ website.

The Rival 710 carries a $99.99 MSRP.
