EVGA gets into the gaming mouse market

Gaming mice are a dime a dozen these days, but EVGA is looking to stand apart from the crowd with its first entry into this crowded field. The company today announced the TORQ X10 gaming mouse with an 8200 DPI Avago 9800 laser sensor, adjustable weight, and nine programmable buttons.
 
The TORQ X10 has been designed for ambidextrous operation and includes Omron switches that have a lifespan of 20 million clicks. Other features include a metal base, customizable RGB LED lighting, 512KB of internal memory for storing profiles, and an adjustable palm rest so that you can find just the perfect fit for your hand.

 
But the feature EVGA is most proud about is the carbon fiber housing the wraps along the sides and to the rear of the mouse. EVGA’s Joe Darwin explained that the carbon fiber isn’t cheap to produce, but the custom design is something that hardcore gamers will appreciate.

 
Unfortunately, pricing and availability for the TORQ X10 isn’t known at this time, but we’ll keep you updated as soon as we find out more information. But don’t expect the mouse to come cheap due to its partial carbon fiber construction.

Useless expense

I've never been one to subscribe to the idea of form over function. This idea of using carbon fiber on a mouse is just a completely useless expense. It probably adds about $20 to the cost of production, meaning it will be about $50 more than necessary for the end user. Completely useless.

No way, bro. I've been complaining for years that my mouse should be a couple grams lighter, and wasn't structurally rigid enough. And that it cost far too little.

lol! I must be insane for gaming with a $20 laser mouse. Then again, I must be insane for not having an iPhone....

Same goes for the LEDs (and to some degree the adjustable palm rest/weight) as well. The thing that makes or breaks a gaming mouse in my opinion is the software and seeing how this is EVGAs first experiment with PC peripherals I expect it to be on par with early Razer drivers/software (ie. appalling)

For sure. Everyone knows the ONLY way to improve gameplay is to have RECARO-featured cloth on your mouse.
