HyperX Pulsefire Surge RGB - The Natural Killer

    Sometimes engineers create a small miracle, and a device appears whose light and price and technical characteristics fall into the “golden section”. Best choice for your money, optimal configuration, that's all. After some time, developers face a difficult task - to repeat the feat. Make the device better without increasing the price. HyperX Pulsefire FPS was one of those mice - did it make it better by assigning the word Surge?

    Origins of success

    Why did you love the previous model? There was a good sensor in it - not the newest, but of high quality. In no way was it inferior to the middle segment of this time, but it worked without a mountain of “digital best managers” - minimum delays, maximum accuracy. The left and right mouse buttons were determined by Japanese Omron microswitches with a resource of clicks for several years of active play. Instead of individual legs (so loving to bully and unevenly reduce their height during operation) there were huge sliding surfaces - they grind down over the entire area and perfectly rubbed it under your grip and palm weight distribution. In general, everything was done in a human way and was worth reasonable money.


    Everything gets better with bluetooth customization. Whether you like it or not, but RGB-illumination today is synonymous with the word "modern gadget." The solid line encircles the case, shimmers with all the colors of the rainbow and is easily configured via proprietary software. The shape of the mouse has changed, becoming a bit more neutral. The materials remained the same - strong and resistant to dirt plastic with a pleasant texture, graceful, as if rubberized on the side faces.

    Universal grip

    Ergonomics is different from the previous generation - if in the first version, the designers flirted with the human anatomy, trying to create a “universal soldier” who would lie comfortably in any palm, then everything is a little more complicated. The mouse grip is still full, but the shape of the back and the keys is sharpened for a different way of interaction. From the concept of "lay in my hand, like a glove" (which could easily be and "lay down, but not quite clearly") went to "any hand will find points of contact." The grip in any case turned out to be strong and the rodent is perfectly controlled by that gentle female hands, that hairy male paws. Just the "back" does not stick to the palm.

    Flagship filling

    Good old Pixart 3310 was sent to rest, the heart of HyperX Pulsefire Surge RGB has become a modern sensor of the upper price segment 3389. In a nutshell - this is the best sensor on the market. And the point. Its resolution is 16,000 dpi without interpolating values. The speed of updating the matrix - up to 450 Hz, the maximum acceleration and uniformity of indicators - like the best e-sports equipment. Better hardware for such money ( 4500 rubles ) you will not find.

    Keys all also hang on "Omronovsky" switches. Resource - from here to the moon, click and click. With a great desire (and irresistible sharpening of the device) you can order microswitches with reinforced springs and replace them, however, you will have to say goodbye to the warranty service. However, when it worried do-it-yourself? The main thing is that inside everything is collected according to the mind. It is evident that not marketers designed, but engineers.

    Sliding on surfaces and moving the cursor

    A good mouse should work on any tables and carpets. Excellent - albeit not at all, but unmistakably and accurately. By the nature of the movement of the sight (or cursor), the Pulsefire Surge RGB is stuck somewhere between a professional sports equipment and a good mainstream. Homogeneous gray "office", a classic laminated coffee table or a sofa cushion is not a problem. The mouse tracks motion perfectly - for casual post-arrow cards, strategy games and browsing will roll. But on good coverage, the character of the rodent is completely transformed. Accuracy - sniper, predictability - as in the election results in Belarus, stability - Old Man never dreamed of. Not a mouse is a killing machine.

    Duel test

    Of course, everything is excellent in shooters (for this, Pulsefire Surge RGB was created, after all). Dynamic games like Overwatch or CS: GO impose a standard set of rodent requirements. Minimal interference in the player's actions, lack of “corner binding”, weak tracking of the axes: in general, nothing should interfere with the cybersportsman to do their job - to fill frags. Here, after the complimentary ode to Pixart'u 3389, there is nothing special to write. Work in graphics packages is also greatly simplified, pixel-hunting in Photoshop and smooth pen movements in Illustrator do not cause pain, they turn into a simple routine.

    The mouse weighs nothing at all, the hand does not get tired, there is no inertia, the huge area of ​​contact with the surface and the high-quality material of the “slides” kill two birds with one stone. It is not difficult to make a short movement, to keep sight for the goal - also, but long runs at low sensitivity (many snipers like to play this way, with a mouse permutation) are deprived of the “departure” of the cursor - the lift-off is chosen almost perfectly. Movement on the screen stops exactly at the moment when you expect it.


    Complete software is required to go to such a gadget - even if the sensor operation parameters are 90% automated and vary according to the nature of the movement and the type of coverage under it, the system cannot choose the backlight. Unfortunately, computers have not yet learned to read minds (or, fortunately), so everything is according to antiquity - you choose the mode, the colors you need, you save the profile to the device’s memory and voila: the mouse perfectly conveys your world view. Well, or at least not knocked out of the surrounding space design.

    Like any e-sports inventory, the functionality is fully tuned here: do you want to reassign keys, hang a complex hot key on a wheel or write a fuzzy macro? No problem.

    Setting the backlight is implemented in 100% simple and understandable way. You want - algorithms ready, you want - manual appointment. First, the color is selected, then - specific LEDs (or several at once - with a frame). Convenient and efficient.

    LED color differentiation

    Of course, the parameters of the sensor and switching between sensitivity modes also exist. The thresholds of sensitivity (as their number) can be set independently.

    Did you want to play better? Play, because now you can’t get a slip on the iron - the joint will be 100% on your side. Losing with such an inventory is simply embarrassing, which means the only thing left to do is swing the skill.
