Earlier this month we saw the announcement of two new gaming mice from GIGABYTE - the M6900 and M6980. Most will associate GIGABYTE with Motherboards and Graphics Cards but GIGABYTE have quite an extensive, on going peripheral product range and just recently their determination is set to take a firm hold within the gaming market.

Both gaming mice I am to look at today are very similar in style. The M6900 has a glossy, smooth exterior whilst the M6980 features a matte outer surface. The M6900 holds a 3200DPI optical sensor whilst the M6980 a 2000DPI laser sensor. With both mice being so similar in appearance but dissimilar under the hood this will make for an interesting read, especially when we come to the testing stage.



GIGABYTE's Take (M6980):
GIGABYTE M6980 laser gaming mouse is one of most popular choice of GIGABYTE gaming series. The combination of 2000dpi, 1000rps report rate and 20g acceleration provide a very accurate basis for gaming.
GHOSTTM Macro Engine of 8KB on-board memory supports 3 gaming profiles stored on the mouse. Having personal macro settings portable with the mouse allow users to load their profiles on any computers.
Equipped for gamer, GIGABYTE M6980 upgrades your level in game play!
