Gamers drive high-end computing: if you don’t think so, consider the renaissance of (expensive) mechanical keyboards in the last couple of years. Of course gaming mice have been common for a while, and EVGA has just thrown their hat into this very competitive ring with the EVGA TORQ X10 mouse. Boasting a fully ambidextrous design, 9 programmable buttons, an 8200-DPI laser sensor, solid metal base, and a dramatic style, the TORQ X10 mouse also comes in at a very competitive price, especially if you pre-order it. Benchmark Reviews connects this new mouse to our gaming machine to investigate how well it works in this article.

Mice, like keyboards, are very personal things. A mouse that some people like, others will hate; it could be size, or the way the mouse feels. Wireless mice seem to be the norm these days, but many gamers prefer the perceived superior responsiveness and reliability of a corded mouse, and the X10 is corded.

What distinguishes a gaming mouse from a “normal” mouse? Generally, it will have more buttons; the buttons will be programmable, and the mouse hardware itself will be different: gaming mice tend to be sturdier, have higher resolution sensors, and some offer physical adjustability, so the shape, size, and weight of the mouse can be changed. Let’s take a look at the EVGA TORQ X10 and see what it’s got.

    COMMENT QUESTION: Who makes your favorite gaming mouse?
    Logitech.
    i had a G5 G5X G600 G602 (still have the G602… impressed 2 Energizer Lithium and still running 5 out of 5 bar in the battery status after a bit more than 2month )

    oh well that EVGA mouse look attractive in the carbon clad type … but it’s kinda too little on the function side (after using a G600 and a G602 it’s difficult to settle for less than 8 buttons on the left side) i think if i ever need a wired mouse i will look for a G502 Proteus Core (well 3 button less than the G602 but still 5 buttons on the left side)

      I’m still rockin’ a Logitech G9 and G9x gaming mouse for my systems.

    So this is the $50 version without the carbon fiber right? Have you tested the carbon fiber version and how it feels (in the hands)?

  3. David Ramsey

    Yes, we tested the non-carbon fiber version. The photos of the carbon fiber version show a smooth finish, so I would expect it to be purely decorative, and to feel the same as the non-carbon version.
