Chicago - SteelSeries announced several products for computer gamers today.
The new introductions included the Xai laser mouse, Kinzu optical mouse and 9HD hard plastic surface.
"We spent three years methodically perfecting the SteelSeries Xai by researching mouse grips used by professional
gaming teams such as Fnatic, SK Gaming and Evil Geniuses in order to create a level of performance that gamers have never experienced before," said Bruce Hawver, CEO of SteelSeries, in a statement.
The Xai mouse, which has a $79.99 suggested retail, features an ambidextrous shape, seven programmable macro buttons with 200 strokes per button, driverless plug-and-play with five profiles, and is fully configurable via LCD menu system, according to the company.
The Kinzu optical mouse ($34.99) has the same shape as the Xai but is 7 percent smaller.
Finally, the 9HD surface ($34.99) was engineered to support the tracking capabilities of high-definition gaming mice. It's said to feature a finely textured surface with "tens of thousands of light-reflecting microscopic points." SteelSeries said this lets users perform exceptionally precise mouse operations.
All three products are scheduled to be available in August.
