[CES 2014] Mad Catz has just announced yet another gaming peripheral for those who are looking for the next big thing that might just be able to bring their gaming performance up to the next level, and what better way to do so than with a gaming mouse? The Mad Catz R.A.T.TE (TE here stands for Tournament Edition, which just goes to show how serious the folks over at Mad Catz are with regard to churning out something cool for the masses) gaming mouse will play nice regardless of whether you get your gaming kicks from the PC or Mac platform.
The Mad Catz R.A.T. TE is tipped to ship sometime in early 2014, and we do not see it go beyond the first quarter actually, so you might want to start saving up your dough for this bad boy before it is officially released. Specially designed to appeal to the e-sports professional (as well as wannabes, this I am quite sure), it will feature a newly developed Phillips Doppler-laser sensor so that it can offer reference quality tracking with speeds up to 8200 DPI. Apart from that, every single feature of the R.A.T.TE has also been specially engineered for mobility, performance and precision, where the overall weight has been reduced to decrease inertia, while both speed and resolution have also radically improved to deliver faster reaction times. Not only that, there is also programmable button mapping thrown into the mix, ‘Lift-Off’ height calibration and dynamic surface detection. [Press Release]
