SteelSeries announced that their newest lineup of hardware, the Rival 3 Gaming Mouse, Apex 3 and Apex 5 Gaming Keyboards, are now available. This lineup has been made with the players in mind during creation and the company is hoping that gamers can feel that in use.
“There are so many gamers out there that are stuck using boring, traditional office peripherals for gaming,” said Ehtisham Rabbani, SteelSeries CEO. “With these new products, we set office products in our sights and sought to retool our cutting-edge technologies and put them into products that are accessible for every gamer. No one should have to be stuck using run-of-the-mill office products for gaming.”
The Rival 3 mouse has RGB lighting with a new performance-focused sensor. The mouse is built with a durable polymer for incredible durability, in a lightweight 77g form factor. The Rival 3 features SteelSeries’ new TrueMove Core optical sensor. The TrueMove Core 8,500 CPI sensor was designed for precise performance with true 1-to-1 tracking, so the exact motions of the mouse are perfectly replicated on the screen.
The Apex 3 keyboard includes a 10-zone RGB light with gaming switches and anti-ghosting. It’s also water-resistant and utilizes low-friction switches for new silent use. Similar to the premium Apex Pro line, the Apex 3 comes with a similar high-quality magnetic wrist rest, the same dedicated media keys and clickable metal roller, and a three-way cable routing system underneath the board.
The Apex 3 is available for $49.99.
The Apex 5 takes the series up a notch with a premium magnetic wrist rest, aircraft-grade aluminum build, OLED Smart Display, media controls, and volume roller, and customizable per-key RGB lighting. Users can customize the OLED screen with GIFs, view on-the-fly information from games, view song information on TIDAL, incoming Discord messages, and settings.
The Apex 5 is available now for $99.99.
