Yet another Razer product joins its growing list of Chroma-enabled devices which can be dressed in any color you can think of. This time, it’s the Razer Naga, the company’s signature MMO mouse with a 12-button mechanical thumb pad.

With the Chroma upgrade, the new Naga Chroma becomes the flagship in Razer’s line of gaming peripherals for MMO players, which includes mice like the wireless Razer Naga Epic Chroma and the Naga Hex.

The 4G 8,200 CPI laser sensor on the older Naga has also been upgraded to a 5G 16,000 CPI affair with no interpolation on the Naga Chroma. While gaming mice sometimes use interpolation to achieve higher CPIs, it can sometimes introduce tracking inaccuracies. As a result, the absence of interpolation should theoretically enable equally precise tracking all the way up to 16,000 CPI.

But we say this a lot, and we’ll say it again. You probably don’t need a 16,000 CPI (even 8,200 CPI is likely more than you’ll ever use) sensor, unless you’re running an extravagant triple 4K monitor setup or something similar.

The new sensor supports down to 1 CPI increments in Razer Synapse, so you should be able to get your in-game sensitivity just right.

The Chroma treatment also means that the Naga Chroma will now be able to be synchronized with other Chroma-enabled devices like the BlackWidow Chroma, Kraken 7.1 Chroma, and the Firefly mouse mat. This ability to coordinate lighting colors and effects via Razer Synapse is probably why Razer is so eager to roll out Chroma on all its devices.
