ROCCAT announced the release of the ROCCAT Kone XTD – Max Customization Gaming Mouse and the ROCCAT Kone Pure – Core Performance Gaming Mouse – with the new mice to hit shelves in Europe on October 26 and in North America and Asia end of November. Both new models feature the Kone design, with the Pure offering a slimmer option that's 91% the size of the original Kone – a measurement decided upon after ROCCAT conducted extensive research with gamers to determine an optimally-reduced Kone version.
And, as with earlier Kone mice, each comes standard with a world-beating performance package, this time featuring a fully-adjustable 8200 DPI Pro-Aim R3 laser sensor – with 41 DPI settings, ranging from 200 to 8200 – a 32-bit Turbo Core V2 72MHz ARM MCU processor, 576kB on-board memory, and the planet's most advanced Tracking & Distance Control Unit – all working in clockwork unison to deliver the world's most impressive speed, control and accuracy.
The Kone XTD and Kone Pure are also the planet's first mice to feature the new ROCCAT Titan Wheel – the world's most state of the art scroll wheel. Built with only the highest-quality components – including the world's strongest axis shaft and most sophisticated encoder – and designed using the most cutting-edge gaming engineering, the Titan Wheel represents a new standard in scrolling, delivering millions of ultra-precise steps during its lifespan. The Kone XTD features a 4D Titan Wheel, while the Kone Pure is loaded with a 2D version. Both mice also feature innovative new ROCCAT Click Master switch tech – powered by Omron – the world's most advanced switch technology that delivers the most precise button activation ever.
"The Kone XTD and Kone Pure represent the pinnacle of Kone evolution," says René Korte, ROCCAT Founder and CEO. "Everything Kone fans worldwide have asked for is there – and much, much more. And thanks to the new Titan Wheel and Click Master switch tech, these latest Kones provide quality and innovation other gaming mice simply can't touch."
