Razer will unlock the 8000Hz polling rate in HyperPolling wireless

In 2021, Razer advanced its Viper series with the fusion of wired technology and an 8000Hz polling rate. By 2022, the company elevated its innovation with HyperPolling Technology, offering a 4000Hz polling rate through a corresponding USB adapter for a 2.4GHz wireless connection. This year, Razer has introduced the Viper Mini Signature Edition, setting a new benchmark by enhancing the HyperPolling Technology to an 8000Hz polling rate.

Razer has announced that it will unlock the 8000Hz polling rate in HyperPolling wireless mode through firmware upgrades, with the first five high-end wireless gaming mice leading the release, including:

  • Razer Viper V2 Pro
  • Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro
  • Razer Basilisk V3 Pro
  • Razer Cobra Pro
  • Razer V3 HyperSpeed

Along with the existing Razer Viper Mini Signature Edition, a total of six products will support the 8000Hz polling rate under the HyperPolling wireless mode. Razer indicates that this will enable up to eight times more data transmission per second from the mouse to the PC, significantly diminishing input lag from the typical 1ms to a mere 0.125ms. Combined with Razer’s HyperSpeed wireless technology’s ultra-low latency, it ensures the most sensitive and reliable connection for gamers in play.

For players wishing to upgrade, the installation of the latest version of Razer Synapse is required. Upon updating, a link for HyperPolling compatible devices will appear on the main interface, indicating “Firmware Update Available.” Clicking it will redirect to Razer.com, where the firmware updater can be downloaded.
