What’s the difference between a “regular” mouse and a “gaming” mouse? It’s a reasonable question, and one that Corsair hopes to answer with the Raptor M45 Gaming Mouse. Basically, the difference boils down to features and responsiveness. The Corsair Raptor M45 has both of these in spades.


When optical mice started replacing “ball mice” in the late 1990s, their resolution was only a few hundred dots per inch (DPI) and their polling rates relatively low, which was adequate to traverse the small computer screens and play the simple games of the day. But modern large screens and rapid-fire games demand high resolution and polling rates, and gamers want definable buttons and other features. We’re here to find out how well the Corsair Raptor M45 meets these needs.
