Roccat’s Kone has gone optical

ROCCAT have announced that they will be introducing a limited run Kone XTD Optical gaming mouse. This new addition to the Kone lineup will feature an ultra-precise, true 6,400 DPI Pro-Optic (R5) optical sensor as well as ROCCAT’s Adjustable Distance Control Unit (ADCU), for manually configurable lift control.

The Kone XTD Optical also comes with ROCCAT’s Easy-Shift[+] technology and holds a beastyt 32-bit Turbo Core V2 ARM MCU processor, complete with 576kb of on-board memory for storing macros and settings. Add in some sexy custom lighting effects to boot and this mouse is looking pretty snappy..

“We wanted to make this a special gift to our fans,” says René Korte, CEO and founder of ROCCAT Studios. “The Kone XTD Optical is a unique mouse with a lot under the hood, that maintains all of the expectations gamers that love ROCCAT products have come to expect from the Kone family of gaming mice. We’re proud to bring it to gamers.”

We’re pretty big fans of the SteelSeries Sensei around these parts, but more competition is always welcome. Keep your eyes peeled for our review of the Kone XTD Optical in the near future.

The Kone XTD Optical is available now in Europe and Asia and will retail for 89,99 Euro. North America should see a release of the mouse soemtime in August.
