Unveiled at CES 2018, the TrueMove3+ dual sensor system features the SteelSeries TrueMove3 as its primary sensor. However, it also features a second optical sensor that exclusively tracks lift-off distance.
I am still enjoying my Rival 700, but the Rival 600 also promises to please competitive gamers. The Rival 600 posseses the most accurate sensor available and unlimited physical and technical customisation options. This technology removes all possibility of jitter and cursor disparity on liftoff movements and offers the lowest lift-off distance in the market.
The TrueMove3+ Sensor
The TrueMove3+ combines the first true 1-to-1 tracking sensor with a second Pixart sensor exclusively tracking the liftoff distance.
The TrueMove3 is a 12,000 CPI, 350 IPS optical sensor that SteelSeries built with sensor industry leader, PixArt. Its ultra-low-latency, rapid-response tracking delivers the most natural and accurate mouse movement.
You see, unlike other mouse sensors that get bogged down with inefficient jitter reduction and tracking latency, TrueMove 3’s 1-to-1 tracking from 100 to 12,000 CPI delivers true esports performance.
The additional sensor allows gamers to adjust their lift-off distance like never before. Gamers can customise when the sensor stops and starts tracking when the mouse is lifted off its mat. This eliminates extra movement when gamers pick up and put down their mouse. The second sensor also features linear optical detection for true depth perception for the world’s most precise lift-off detection down to 0.5mm.
The Rival 600 mouse itself is the newest member of the Rival family.
In addition to the next-level sensor system, the Rival 600 also features customisable weight and balance options for up to 256 different combinations.
Unlike most other weighted mice the Rival 600’s weights are placed in the sides.
The Rival 600 weighs just 96g without weights and comes with eight included 4g weights.
The left/right clicks feature a revolutionary reinforced trigger system that delivers the best clicks in gaming. SteelSeries’ exclusive 60-million click mechanical switches ensure every type of press is executed with precision.
Like the rest of the Rival line, the Rival 600 is an ergonomic right-handed mouse. Whether you use a claw grip or palm grip, the shape will provide perfect comfort for long and intense gaming sessions.
It also features pure silicone grips and an ultra-durable soft touch finish. Inside it has a powerful 32-bit ARM processor that allows you to save CPI settings, button remappings and macros and lighting effects on-board for software-free use at LAN events and tournaments.
The Rival 600 is also compatible with SteelSeries Engine Software. This unlocks an impressive arsenal of Engine Apps that make customisation of the 8-zone RGB lighting easy and intuitive.
The Discord and GameSense Engine Apps allow for chat notifications, in-game events, and more.
SteelSeries CEO, Ehtisham Rabbani stated:
This is a breakthrough in gaming mouse sensor technology. We took a massive leap forward in sensor innovation with Pixart with the TrueMove3 sensor in the Rival 310 and Sensei 310.
Now we’re taking that innovation even further by combining the true 1-to-1 tracking of the TrueMove3 with a second optical sensor for precision. It’s the only dual optical sensor system in the world that can offer this level of precision and accuracy of movement.”
