ROCCAT introduces the Kone XP as a wired mouse with "next-gen" customization options
The latest member of the ROCCAT Kone mouse has this line's eponymous and "iconic" shape, touted for its "superb ergonomics" by its maker. However, the XP goes a different way from siblings such as the Air in terms of looks. Its transparent shell puts a 22-LED array on show, which can be highly customized in terms of color and pattern via 8 light-guides. The same "3D RGB" lighting also diffuses through the XP's Krystal 4D clickwheel.
Therefore, the user could tune the new mouse to match their style or set-up. The Kone XP's tweaking options don't stop there, as its 15 buttons (5 of which are thumb buttons) can take on a total of 29 functions under a Shift+ mode.
The Kone XP is also compatible with NVIDIA Reflex, which is rated to reduce latency to 25 milliseconds or less, although it requires an RTX 30-series card and a G-SYNC monitor for activation. Otherwise, ROCCAT has equipped the accessory with a 19K Owl-Eye DPI optical sensor and a 1.8m PhantomFlex cable which, according to the OEM, confer an almost wireless-like experience on the mouse.
The Kone XP is now priced at US$89.99 on roccat.com. It can be pre-ordered from now with white or black accents and will ship on March 29, 2022.
