Almost every major brand has taken advantage of Cyberpunk 2077’s big bump to release versions of gaming-inspired hardware and peripherals. This time we have the opportunity to analyze the Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition , a more top-of-the-range mouse than ever with an aesthetic that makes it possibly the most beautiful on the market.
As for news, we do not have too many compared to the original Viper Ultimate, with the powerful Focus + 20,000 DPI optical sensor , software customization and low latency wireless connectivity . In this case, the charging base is included and the price is increased by 10 euros compared to the let’s say standard versions. Ready to get to know it in depth? Let’s start the review!
The design will undoubtedly be the main protagonist in the Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition , since it is where the news of this version is. We have already discussed the base model before, so we will go a little faster on the basic features of the mouse by knowing it beforehand.
The measurements remain invariant, being a mouse exquisitely designed to adapt to the three types of grip . Although the most comfortable for most users will be the palm grip due to the soft and elongated curvature that it presents in the rear area. In fact, this wide area makes it a bit difficult to grip the claw, and in its benefit it has improved precision by always making contact with the palm of our hand. The only RGB zone available will be integrated into the brand logo, being compatible with Razer Synapse 3.
The aesthetic is a true marvel, whether or not we are fans of the game, it is a daring, striking skin and above all with an impeccable finish . The plastic shells used in the upper area and buttons have a smooth but grippy finish . This is enhanced by the type of matte yellow paint that covers them, with very good quality in the printed details and we imagine that it is highly resistant after a long time of use.
As in the base model, the main buttons have been separated from the rest of the body, being equipped with a wide click surface with a pronounced curvature. These main buttons implement optical Razer buttons , the highest quality of the manufacturer, capable of supporting 70 million clicks and giving us a latency of only 0.7 ms . The wheel protrudes very little from the plane of the buttons, with a rather small size and dotted rubber surface to prevent finger slipping.
The lateral areas have a dotted rubber coating on both sides to improve grip. As is evident we see a completely ambidextrous design with navigation buttons on both sides. It presents a smooth curvature in the lower area that greatly improves the precision and security of the grip.
One characteristic that we see as very positive is that the click hardness on all the buttons is the same , with minimal travel and quite soft. One of the best we have in the current panorama from our point of view. The weight is also very much in our favor, and at just 74g it is one of the lightest wireless mice on the market.
Finally, the base has 4 small PTFE legs with rounded edges that give us a quick glide, and a 5th leg around the sensor to isolate it from dirt. The most interesting thing regarding the usability of the Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition is that it integrates the power button, DPI and a magnetic charging port for the base that is included, in addition to the Micro USB port located in the front area. Also in the lower area we have a hole to insert the USB receiver and thus take it with us anywhere.
Regarding the included charging base, we can say that it is a good complement to improve the versatility and use of the mouse. Its base is adhesive and has an ARGB lighting zone compatible with Razer Synapse 3. What we are missing at this point is a USB-C port for both the mouse and the base. The micro USB is clearly no longer an option , and the connector cover also has a corporate design that prevents the use of generic cables.
Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition Features
If the Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition can boast of something in addition to its design, it is because of the impressive features it offers us. The Viper model of this generation has put all the meat on the grill by equipping the Razer Focus +, the manufacturer’s top-of-the-range optical sensor.
It has a resolution of 20,000 DPI configurable in 5 levels, and an accuracy of 99.6% to adapt to all types of screen resolutions or maximum precision tasks. Supports displacements of 650 inches per second (16.5 m / s), accelerations of 50G and advanced customization of the lift / off distance from the software.
Connectivity is via 2.4 GHz wireless frequency with a maximum polling rate of 1000 Hz , equipped in turn with HyperSpeed wireless technology 25% faster than other brands. Despite its low weight, this mouse has a fairly good battery capacity, giving us about 70 hours of autonomy without lighting , which is not bad at all. If we prefer, we can also use the wired mode with the included 1.8 m USB Speedfled cable .
In general, they are TOP features in terms of gaming mice, clearly built for competition and with the addition of this Cyberpunk 2077 skin. The only thing missing is to add a Sniper mode button, which would be great in this customized version to handle sniper rifles. or even activate the hacking mode of our character. Although we always have the 4 side buttons to add variety.
Control and lighting software
Along with this Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition we must have the Synapse 3 software to squeeze all the possibilities it does not offer us.
And we make the first stop in the button customization section , in which we have the 8 mouse interaction buttons next to the DPI button on the base. In total there will be 9, although changing the function of the bottom button makes little sense. Among the configuration possibilities we have everything we can imagine, mouse functions, keys, keyboard shortcuts, multimedia and macros. In addition, we can toggle between the natural left-handed or right-handed position with a single click.
From the performance section we can modify the basic aspects of the sensor, such as the DPI jumps and polling rate between 125, 500 and 1000 Hz. It also allows us to customize the displacement in the X and Y axis independently and modify the amount of jumps DPI. To this is added a section for manual or automatic calibration by varying the lift / off distance.
The lighting section in this case is quite basic, since we only have a customizable area next to the charging base . With the advanced effects option we can synchronize the Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition with other Razer devices.
Grip and sensitivity
We can only verify what we all already know, that the precision of the Razer Viper Ultimate Cyberpunk 2077 Edition is TOP level in the market. In fact, that 99.6% is the highest figure, beating mice optimized for creators and design jobs.
Regarding the type of grip we will be quite brief, since it offers comfort in whatever we use. It’s long enough for a palm grip, narrow enough for a finger grip, and low enough for a claw grip. Its lightness for a battery mouse is impressive, so its usability is wonderful.
Movement variance : The test consists of moving the mouse sideways, at different speeds and at a certain constant distance. The painted line is exactly the same regardless of the speed with which we move the mouse, which means that the aiming in games will be as precise as our skills allow.
Pixel skipping : By making slow movements and at different DPI, the pixel skipping is not appreciated in any case. We do not have options to aid the movement or to magnetize to the angles, so we will enjoy pure performance in any scenario.
Tracking : There is no pixel tracking, and the pointer never experiences strange jumps and plane changes. We recommend performing a calibration so that it optimally matches the surface. It supports practically any one including certain crystals as long as they are impervious to the wavelength of the sensor.
An always very identifying characteristic of the Razer brand is having great customizations of its products for emblematic content, and the perfect example is this mouse. But it is also true that the price usually goes up without practically changing anything in its technical section, something that only fans will appreciate.
What is indisputable is how good this Viper Ultimate has been with the Cyberpunk 2077 skin. Beyond knowing the game or not, it overflows with personality and leaves no one to look at it indifferent. In addition, it provides an excellent finish and grip so as not to fail the most demanding users. We only ask that once and for all the Micro USB port for the mouse and charging base be abandoned and a more current USB-C with better compatibility be placed.
