The Razer Lancehead, a new gaming mouse unveiled today, has big shoes to fill: previous high-end mice from Razer, like the Mamba, have offered an unmatched set of features with few downsides other than their high prices.
The Lancehead appears to be no different. The $139.99 mouse, which is available for pre-order now, offers a wireless connection that automatically hops onto the frequencies with the least interference to ensure accuracy.
In addition to Razer's frequency-hopping technology, which works in the 2.4GHz band, the Lancehead comes with the specs you'd expect from a mouse with an MSRP of more than $100. Among them is a 16,000dpi resolution, 210 inches-per-second (IPS) tracking, and 50g acceleration.
It's also eminently customizable, with more than 16.8 million color choices that can be selected between using the new Razer Synapse Pro software. The software allows you to save your settings directly to the mouse's on-board memory or to the cloud for use with another PC. Lancehead owners will be invited to participate in the Synapse Pro beta, which will eventually roll out to other devices.

The Lancehead's specs closely resemble those of the Mamba, updated in 2015 as Razer's top-of-the-line gaming mouse, with a dual wired/wireless design. The Lancehead's battery will only last for 24 hours between charges, so if you'd like to eliminate frequent charging, you can instead opt for a separate wired model, the $79.99 Lancehead Tournament Edition, which is on sale now.
The Tournament Edition offers the same 16,000dpi as the wireless model, but adds 410 IPS tracking. Razer says that translates into a resolution accuracy of 99.4 percent. Both models are ambidextrous.
