The KOVA builds upon the old ROCCAT favourite in a more streamlined shape that is suitable for left and right handers. Featuring easy to access additional 'Smart Cast' buttons located on the outside of the traditional mouse clicks along with two pairs of side buttons, the total of programmable buttons available is 12, then throw in ROCCAT's EASY SHIFT[+] feature, it doubles up and allows up to 22 programmable buttons in the palm of your hand. Under the hood comes a native 3500dpi Pro-Optic R6 sensor which has been powered up with the aid of ROCCAT's Turbo Core V2 processor, allowing for a stable double up of an effective 7000dpi.
Aesthetically, ROCCAT are moving away from rubberised plastic and more towards smooth, high quality plastics similar to what we have experienced with the ROCCAT NYTH and of course comes with 16.8M customisable RGB LED lighting in two lighting zones. Fully supported by ROCCAT's unified driver software 'Swarm' the all new KOVA checks many boxes gamers desire in a mouse.
