About a month ago Mad Catz started to ship their flagship R.A.T. Pro X gaming mouse and now its little brother the RAT Pro S gaming mouse is ready to take on the job of being your instrument on the virtual battlefields.
The new R.A.T. Pro S follows the same scheme as the other R.A.T. mice by combining aggressive looks with eSports focused performance features and user customization options. It doesn’t feature all of the same as its bigger brother, but it still delivers a solid feature list.
You’ll get 8 programmable buttons with one mode per profile. You can store 3 profiles in the onboard memory and have access to a total of 24 programmable commands. The sensor is an optical PMW331 infrared optical sensor with 5000 DPI. The DPI is adjustable in steps of 50 DPI all the way down to 50 DPI itself. The report rate can be set to 125, 250, 500, or 1000Hz. The buttons should withstand up to 20 million clicks. The Mad Catz R.A.T. Pro S Gaming Mouse comes with a gold-plated 6ft/1.8m USB connector cable.
“Together with the R.A.T. Pro X, the R.A.T. Pro S illustrates Mad Catz’ next-generation of PC gaming and our commitment to designing high-performance products that enhance the experience of competitive gamers,” said Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz. “The R.A.T. Pro S combines blistering speed, lightweight design and user customization options, making it an ideal gaming mouse for tournament gamers and beyond, and we look forward to it contributing positively to our Holiday 2015 lineup of products.”
With a price tag of just $69.99, it is quite a bit cheaper than the R.A.T. Pro X, although it isn’t a budget mouse either.
