Adata XPG has expanded its budding range of PC gaming peripherals with the introduction of Alpha, a 2022 Red Dot Design award-winning mouse.
According to Adata, Alpha’s 128mm x 78mm x 40mm shape was determined by studying data from a large pool of diverse subjects using XPG’s AI-driven hand scanning application. We’ve yet to get it in our own mitts, but going by the pictures it looks rather comfy for a palm-style grip, and a 98g weight represents a safe middle ground.
Under the hood XPG Alpha is powered by a Pixart PAW 3335 sensor, supporting a DPI range of 100 to 16,000, providing more flexibility than you’re ever likely to need. A 40G max acceleration and 400IPS speed, alongside 250Hz, 500Hz or 1,000Hz polling rates, help ensure every movement is swiftly transmitted to the PC. Fine-tuning on the go go is made easy through six DPI preset settings baked into the mouse and shuffled via a dedicated DPI button.
Both wired and wireless versions are being made available, with the latter rated at up to 60 hours of battery life while using its three independent RGB lighting zones. Connectivity options include low-latency 2.4G wireless, low-power Bluetooth, or the trusty ol’ USB cable, which in this instance measured 1.8m in length.
In keeping with myriad rival solutions, Alpha uses premium Omron switches rated at over 60 million clicks durability. Six available programmable buttons can be customised via the firm’s Prime software, which also manages onboard profiles and complex macros.
No word on pricing, sadly, though we expect XPG Alpha to start filtering through to retail in the next couple of weeks.
