Razer does an excellent job of upgrading these products well ahead of their time to blow the rest of the market away.

Wired Mouse with 16,000 DPI
The Razer Mamba Tournament Edition mouse does just that function with the wired mouse with the incredible response time of less than one millisecond in lag. The cutting edge laser sensor, manufactured by Philips, is a fireball with the 16,000 DPI, all without the need for interpolation. Razer states the high DPI is for the high-resolution graphics and the multi-monitor setups, but the newest technologically advanced sensor will also support the single-DPI intervals, instead of the incremental advancement by 50s on the competitors’ gaming mice.
Low-Lift, Better Response Time
The low lift distance of 0.1mm is another perk of the Philips sensor in the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition. This is a 90 percent better response time than the other (much slower) gaming mice that are supposed to be competition. Who are we kidding here?
Designed with Incredible Lighting Special Effects
The new Mamba Tournament Edition has a new design, aesthetically, with the buttons moved from the left side to the centre, and a ridge added for better gripping.
The Chroma RGB lighting is beautiful and exciting, with customisation options for the 16 individual LEDs that can highlight the scroll wheel, Razer logo and/or the body of the mouse. These configurations are adjustable by using the presets in the Synapse software or can be tweaked to your preferences advanced with the Chroma SDK.

Programmable Buttons For Just the Way YOU Like Them Set
The left side of the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition holds a doublet of thumb buttons that augments the two centre buttons and the three-way scroll wheel. All of these buttons and touch points are customisable for a total of seven programmable options for the gamer’s macro needs. The Razer Mamba TE has a textured rubber coating for increased grip and user control, while the aggregate of the mouse has a soft-touch springy finish that is sweat resistant for those highly competitive moments.

Free Software Included That Works Splendidly
The software that is included with the Mamba TE is user-friendly for even the novice gamer. The Synapse software isolates three tabs:
- mouse, for adjusting the acceleration, buttons, DPI, lighting special effects, and calibration for the gaming surface.
- The lighting tab further delineates into
- lighting specialisation in the wave, breathing, spectrum cycling, reactive, static, brightness, flow and off options
- The secondary option is the Chroma Configurator, which allows customisation of the 16 LEDs to any setting that is preferred.
- macros allows customisation with programming of all the buttons individually, or in groupings, whatever the gamer desires for their functional purposes
- stats provides distinctive analysis on button presses, mouse movement and clicks for tracking game performance.

The Synapse software supports lighting effects on all the Chroma devices, enabling the implementation of multiple Razer devices simultaneously. When you add the function of being able to save the gamer’s preferred settings to the cloud, Razer has a brilliant product that can be utilised from anybody’s gaming system, in any location. Gamers that like to play in a group, or with their mates, can download their settings wherever they land to play and continue their gaming as if they had never left their home.
The Razer Mamba TE is a small, compact and lightweight mouse that is perfectly designed for competitive, fast-moving gaming. The novice gamer will up their edge with the available 16,000 DPI. The experience gamers will fly with the Razer competitive edge. There is an abundance of flexibility options available for the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition. If the 16,000 DPI is too extreme for the gamer’s needs, the DPI can be adjusted to go all the way down to 100 DPI.
The Razer Mamba Tournament Edition feels precise and responsive for the customer, whatever functions they are performing. The Mamba TE was utilised in gaming, and in regular mundane work functions. The laser sensor performed optimally, no matter whether the landing surface was hard or soft. There was no jitter or lag in acceleration, just a smooth uninterrupted flow.
Ergonomically, the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition is preferred for a smaller hand. The mouse is not as wide or tall as could be expected for a massive hand. It is all about the grip, really. If you play with a palm grip, the fourth and fifth fingers do not rest comfortably. However, if you play with the claw grip, the Mamba TE is perfectly suited for your competitive endurance.
Competitive Pricing for the Serious Gamer
A street price of £99, US $89, for the Razer Mamba Tournament Edition makes it one of the most expensive gaming mice on the international market. It is important to note that the prospective buyer is purchasing a state-of-the-art laser sensor that delivers a lightning fast, unprecedented DPI performance and customizability.
We love the new Razer Mamba Tournament Edition mouse and had to have it. The response time, the beautiful and exciting lighting, the programmability, and the cloud memory are just a few options that make this mouse outstanding. The price point is reasonable for one who plays competitive games and wants to triumph over their adversaries.
The new Mamba design extols an appealing Chroma RGB graphic lighting option that boasts eye-popping lighting effects with a coherent implementation that complements the included Synapse software. Razer’s new Mamba Tournament Edition mouse offer several benefits over other mice with the same price point, particularly for the competitive gamer who wants the fastest leading-edge technology in their arsenal.
