E3 2012: Razer announces new ambidextrous mouse, the Razer Taipan

Razer has introduced the Razer Taipan, an ambidextrous gaming mouse that aims to set a new standard for versatility, form and function. With this new mouse, Razer plans to combe technology with ergonomic research. The Razer Taipan is the latest product of the brand’s approach to engineering and design. 


Razer’s ergonomic scientists collaborated with top e-Sports athletes from professional gaming teams, such as Empire, Frenetic Array, Mousesports, Quantic, Rox.Kis and Type II Gaming, to pinpoint the shape, weight, and balance required in an ambidextrous mouse at the highest levels of gameplay. Its symmetrical shape with narrow footprint and arched back make it comfortable for a wide variety of players. The weight distribution of the mouse has also been tweaked for an optimal grip profile. Powered by Razer’s new 8200 dpi 4G Dual Sensor System, the Razer Taipan aims to provide extreme precision to the gamer. The mouse combines laser and optical sensors that are not only responsive and precise, but also allow Z-axis tracking and lift off, cut off customization to ensure that aim is always true.

  • Ambidextrous form factor

We have designed the Razer Taipan with the goal of offering pro gamers the best weapon to achieve victory in the competitive world of e-Sports,” said Robert ‘RazerGuy’ Krakoff, President of Razer USA.  “The Razer Taipan is engineered to deliver an astounding 8200 dpi 4G Dual Sensor System to provide gamers with the fastest mouse tracking, enhanced ambidextrous ergonomics and Razer Synapse 2.0 support.
