Wireless ROG Strix Impact II gaming mouse
The Strix Impact II also features a 16,000 DPI sensor with an accuracy of 400 inches per second. Via the 2.4 GHz wireless connection, the mouse should be playable with as little latency as possible. According to the manufacturer, the range of the connection is also as long as possible and a long battery life is also on board. In order to use the mouse during the charging process, there is always the possibility to connect the USB-C cable to a free port.
The Impact II has the same dimensions as its predecessor and is still equally suitable for left and right-handed users. Two buttons on the left side can be assigned to the usual hotkeys, and a dedicated button allows you to cycle through four sensitivity settings. Each setting corresponds to a different colour, indicating the current configuration.
The left and right buttons are separated – typical for gaming mice because the design is more click-accurate. Each main button on the Impact II also features a swivel mechanism with a spring that gently eliminates the play between the button and the switch. The exclusive push-fit switch base design of the Impact II Wireless also supports the replacement of Omron’s D2F and D2FC series.
The mouse has two zones of RGB lighting – one under the logo and the other under the scroll wheel. They allow independent control of colours and effects. In addition, there is support for Aura Sync compatible components. There are also settings in Armoury Crate to adjust the performance of the Impact II, configure its surface calibration settings, change button assignments and create profiles.
In addition to the new wireless version there is also a new wired ROG Strix Impact II. This offers the same features as the ROG Strix Impact II Wireless, but has a different optical sensor with 6200 DPI and 220 IPS.
