Mad Catz is a name that is more often than not associated with quality gaming peripherals, and over the years, they have come up with their fair share of devices which ought to suit different gamers at different seasons. However, their latest exploits does not involve a spanking new piece of hardware, but rather, an upgrade to an existing servant. Mad Catz has just thrown in a new Optical Sensor to their R.A.T.3 gaming mouse, making me wonder whether companies have now reached the end of the innovative streak at this point in time, preferring to introduce minor updates to existing hardware instead.
It is said that this next generation optical sensor will be able to offer 1:1 tracking precision and zero acceleration, and according to Mad Catz, the R.A.T.3 now comes equipped “with the Avago 3090 optical sensor able to track at an impressive 3500DPI”. If you loved the original R.A.T.3, then you might want to consider getting this incremental upgrade – it would somewhat be akin to installing a new engine to your beloved car.
