The Razer Viper V3 Pro wireless gaming mouse has been developed with an extremely lightweight design and supports a wireless polling rate of up to 8000 Hz. In the following lines, we’ll explore the features and drawbacks of this version.

Last year, Razer introduced the third generation of its wireless gaming mouse from the Viper series, the “Viper V3 Hyperspeed,” featuring a new design and some changes that offer a different user experience. This version came at a lower cost than other models in the series.

Later, Razer introduced the Viper V3 Pro mouse with the same design language as the low-cost version, distinguished by its sleek design that offers a better experience than the previous Viper V2 Pro model. Additionally, the new version comes with a smoother surface.

While Razer adopted the same design language as the “Viper V3 Hyperspeed” in its premium wireless mouse version, the V3 Pro also comes with a set of improvements. It’s the first mouse to feature the second generation of the “Focus Pro 35K optical sensor,” supporting sensitivity of up to 35,000 DPI and a maximum speed of 750 IPS, with acceleration of up to 70G.

Razer also positioned this sensor in the bottom center of the mouse’s design. The company provides the mouse with a “HyperPolling” connector, which boosts the wireless polling rate to 8000 Hz.

The mouse is also extremely lightweight at 54 grams, competing with some of the lightest wireless gaming mice on the market. It’s also one of the higher-priced mice available. The Razer Viper V3 Pro comes in two color options, black and white, and is available for sale with the wireless HyperPolling connector only.

Design

As mentioned earlier, the Razer Viper V3 Pro mouse closely resembles the design of the low-cost version, the “Viper V3 Hyperspeed,” featuring the same buttons and upper division. The main difference lies in the DPI button, which has been moved from the top to the bottom of the mouse. Additionally, the Pro version’s DPI button supports dual functions, acting as both a DPI switch and a mouse power button, located beside the optical sensor.

In practical terms, the V3 Pro offers a similar overall design to the V3 Hyperspeed, providing smooth and fluid movement with a sleek exterior. It measures 5 inches in length and 2.51 inches in width, and the rear part has a height of 1.57 inches.

Another difference between the Pro and V3 Hyperspeed lies in the extremely lightweight design of the Pro version. The black version weighs 54 grams, while the white version weighs 55 grams, making it 6 grams lighter than the Logitech G Pro X mouse.

On the other hand, the Viper V3 Pro mouse features six programmable buttons, including the scroll wheel that supports click, right, and left click buttons, and two side buttons, along with the power/DPI button located at the bottom of the mouse.

Razer supports users with a scroll task programming feature in the mouse, allowing a total of 8 programmable options, with one assigned as the primary click.

At the bottom of the mouse, there are two large PTFE feet designed to facilitate efficient mouse movement. The optical sensor and the power/DPI button are located in the middle of the bottom part of the mouse.

The Viper V3 Pro mouse comes with a USB-C to USB-A cable in the box, measuring 1.8 meters in length, and featuring a robust design.

Performance

The Razer Viper V3 Pro mouse is the first to feature the company’s new optical sensor, the “Razer Focus Pro 35K,” which differs from the previous version, the “Razer Focus Pro 30K,” by offering a maximum sensitivity of up to 35,000 DPI.

The mouse also supports sensitivity adjustment through calibration using “Synapse 3.” Additionally, the Viper V3 Pro mouse allows DPI adjustment in increments of 1, a significant ratio even for professional gamers.

The Focus Pro 35K sensor can track speeds of up to 750 IPS and up to 70G of acceleration. It also supports tracking on various surfaces, including fabric, wood, leather, concrete, and even glass.

Moreover, the Viper V3 Pro mouse features the third generation of Razer’s optical switches, supporting up to 90 million clicks. The switches offer good stability and produce a somewhat loud click sound. However, practical experience confirms that users won’t encounter issues with misclicks or double-clicking.

Additionally, the practical experience with the mouse confirms smooth clicking, with the thumb buttons featuring a comfortable design without excessive sensitivity. The mouse includes 5 programmable buttons, as many users prefer not to program the DPI button on the bottom of the mouse.

The scroll wheel comes with a sturdy design, slightly stiffer than required, but free scrolling isn’t the desired option. Overall, the scroll wheel’s stiffness is acceptable.

The mouse features an LED indicator below the scroll wheel, customizable in Synapse 3 to provide users with information about connection status, battery charge status, or low battery alerts.

Overall, the Viper V3 Pro mouse offers good gaming performance, with its lightweight design supporting quick control in shooting games to enhance user performance in fast movements.

Software

The Viper V3 Pro mouse supports programming and necessary modifications through the Razer Synapse 3 application, offering users a seamless experience to make changes and reset button tasks, adjust DPI stepping rates, and power-saving settings. The mouse can also be calibrated for different surfaces.

Furthermore, the Viper V3 Pro mouse comes with only one profile, so users will need to refer to the Synapse 3 application to switch profiles.

Razer also offers the Viper V3 Pro mouse with an exclusive feature called “Sensitivity Matching,” allowing users to calibrate the mouse using another mouse, a smooth process that involves moving the mice slowly while selecting DPI settings to transfer the user’s preferred experience from another mouse to this version.

Connectivity and Battery

The Viper V3 Pro mouse supports two connectivity modes: 2.4GHz wireless via the HyperPolling wireless connector or wired via USB-C.

The mouse can achieve a polling rate of 8000 Hz wirelessly, while wired connection is limited to 1000 Hz.

Additionally, the battery life can last up to 95 hours of operation at a polling rate of 1000 Hz. When set to 8000 Hz, the mouse can last up to 17 hours of operation on a single charge.

Do you need to buy the Razer Viper V3 Pro mouse?

The Razer Viper V3 Pro wireless mouse offers everything a user needs in a lightweight mouse with many features. However, some of these features may not be of great importance to gamers. Primarily, if your goal is to take advantage of the 8000 Hz polling rate in wireless mode and the DPI switch feature, then the Razer Viper V3 Pro mouse is a good choice. However, the market includes other competitive mouse models with similar features, such as the HyperX Pulsefire Haste 2.
