For Release on August 11, 2022, at 4pm BST / 8am PDT / 5pm CEST / 11pm SGT:
 

HAMBURG, Germany, Calif – Razer™, the leading global lifestyle brand for gamers, today announced the new Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro, the latest iteration in Razer’s best-selling DeathAdder mouse line. Boasting the latest in Razer’s industry-leading mouse technologies, such as Razer HyperSpeed Wireless Technology and new Razer HyperPolling technology, combined with a new ultra-lightweight ergonomic design, the Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro is a gamers best ally for peak performance in competition play.
 

Iconic ergonomics, further refined
 

First released in 2006, with over 15 million mice shipped worldwide so far, the acclaimed DeathAdder is Razer’s most popular gaming mouse, trusted by world-class esports athletes. With the DeathAdder V3 Pro, victory takes on a new shape. Comfortable grooves with reduced flares on the sides give better grip and hand support, and are coupled with an improved ergonomic form for better comfort, tactility, and lightweight handling. In addition, the scroll wheel, buttons, and palm support have all been elevated for increased accessibility. Refined further with feedback from top esports pros, the iconic and minimal aesthetic ergonomic form is now available in both black and white colorways, weighing just 63 grams and 64 grams, respectively.
 

“Since its launch, Razer has worked with esports pros all over the world to fine-tune and hone the DeathAdder into a truly formidable competitive mouse," said Flo Gutierrez, Director of Global Esports at Razer. “With the DeathAdder V3 Pro, we have now produced the most advanced, ultra-lightweight, ergonomic DeathAdder to date, honoring the DeathAdder’s reputation of providing ‘the unfair advantage’.”
 

Just as familiar and dependable as before, the DeathAdder V3 Pro is more than 25% lighter than its predecessor, boasts a battery life of up to 90 hours, and is easily rechargeable via USB Type C with the in-box Razer Speedflex charging cable.


Best-in-class technologies, focused on pure performance


At the heart of the DeathAdder V3 Pro is the Razer Focus Pro 30K Optical Sensor with a resolution accuracy of 99.8%. This powerful new sensor is equipped with a suite of AI functions such as Smart Tracking, Motion Sync, and Asymmetric Cut-off, for the ultimate performance at the highest levels of play. The DeathAdder V3 Pro is also fitted with Razer’s Optical Mouse Switches Gen-3 for absolutely zero unintended double-clicking and no debounce delay. Ultra-fast and reliable, these optical switches are rated for 90 million clicks.


Equipped with HyperSpeed Wireless, Razer’s proprietary wireless technology that is up to 25% faster than other wireless technologies, the DeathAdder V3 Pro is also compatible with Razer’s new HyperPolling Wireless technology. Natively, the DeathAdder V3 Pro supports a polling rate of 1000 Hz, at 1ms polling intervals. With the addition of the Razer HyperPolling Wireless Dongle, the DeathAdder V3 Pro polls wirelessly at 0.25ms polling intervals, with 4x more frequent polls than before, four times faster than standard polling rates. By combining these 2 best-in-class technologies, players will experience smoother tracking, more consistent updates, and the lowest wireless click latency, allowing them to outperform any opponents in competitive games, where every millisecond counts.


The Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro represents the latest in Razer’s gaming and mouse technologies, combining esports-honed ergonomics with a best-in-class sensor, Optical Mouse Switches Gen-3 and industry-leading wireless technologies, in an ultra-lightweight design – ready to start a new chapter of a legendary story.


HyperPolling Wireless Dongle
Launched on the 22nd of July, the Razer HyperPolling Wireless Dongle is the first wireless mouse dongle capable of a true 4000Hz wireless polling rate. Designed for ultra-responsive competitive play, gamers can experience a higher standard of wireless performance with the perfect upgrade for Razer’s latest mice.



Installed on the desk, for unobstructed wireless signals, the HyperPolling Wireless Dongle is capable of auto-switching polling rates for a more convenient competitive gaming experience. Supporting both DeathAdder V3 Pro and Viper V2 Pro, as well as future compatible mice, the HyperPolling Wireless Dongle is managed through Razer Synapse for ease of use and setting performance-based gaming profiles.
