When you're on the hunt in a first-person shooter, the very tiniest fraction of a movement can mean the difference between nailing a shazam headshot and dying. That's why the new 2013 version of the Razer DeathAdder gaming mouse has a 6400 dpi optical sensor, compared to the 3500 dpi infrared sensor on its predecessor. That's, like, almost two-times better, right? We can't help but feel it's not going to affect your epic Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 sessions all that much.

Razer makes some of the hottest gaming gear in the world, so we're willing to bet that the DeathAdder 2013 is mind-numbingly badass. But will all of those extra dots per inch make a difference? Maybe, if you are a super intense gamer. But for almost everyone in the world, well, this is just a $70, ergonomic, customizable mouse with five programmable buttons—just like its $60 predecessor.
