Any specification about this mouse? Will this be the 1st mouse using avago a9800 sensor? I wonder why all manufacturers take a long time to use the sensor in their mice..

There probably won't be any news until March 6th.

Read about it today, its optical and has steps of 400-800-1600-4000dpi, nothing else to worth a mentioning yet.

There is some new pics and the shape looks nice

True 4000 DPI optical sensor - sounds good

With its advanced Pro Optic sensor, the Savu delivers true 400, 800, 1600 and 4000 dpi – placing it at the pinnacle of optical gaming mice. The latest R3 sensor also delivers lag-free gaming without any interpolation, and provides ultra-precise feedback during even the fastest movements – all so players can command with the utmost accuracy.

Hamburg-based ROCCAT Studios says the Savu severely outperforms every gaming mouse in its class and is sure to set a new standard in the mid-size field. CeBIT 2012 visitors can catch the Savu debut at stands from Acer (Hall 22, Booth 24) and XMG by Schenker Notebooks (Hall 23, Booth A01-3.1). The Savu is expected to hit shelves internationally early May.

Easy-Shift[+] technology allowing for advanced button configuration, transforming a 7-button mouse into a 12-button one

Lighting system delivering 16.8 million colors

Debut of the ROCCAT Achievements Display – or R.A.D. – an application that tracks and rewards a wide range of gaming feats, such as mouse movement, button clicks, scroll steps, etc.

I just dont understand why they would waste their time on something like this

"Roccat also say that their Savu mouse is the world’s first mouse to feature a trophy and statistics program called the ROCCAT Achievements Display or RAD. Which has been created to reward gamers who accomplish achievements for mouse movement, button clicks, scroll steps to name a few. Roccat stress that the RAD will not have any effect on in game performance or control."

Should I have fun and let you guys guess the sensor?

How would you know the sensor?

They say optical and 4000CPI on the same sentence.

The CPI steps are 400CPI, 800CPI, 1600CPI and 4000CPI, and it states it has no interpolation at all (which can be thought to be marketing allright).

I'm guessing it uses a custom lens to get to 4000CPI, and if it's not interpolated, it should only come from the A3090 or a version of it.

So I guess the only native CPI steps might be 4000CPI and 1600CPI, with the lesser ones being dropping counts (if no interpolation, that's the only way), or even native 800CPI, which I would find weird.

It looks like an A3090 from the surface, but I can expect any surprise to happen with Roccat, even labeling it optical while it isn't (and getting a Phillips Twin Eye 2031 instead).

Do I get a cookie Skylit?

Yes you do, but it's actually a new sensor rom smile.gif

I assumed the Spawn would get updated with this variation, but carter would have to confirm or deny.

Looking at that sheet, it looks great in theory :
Code:
Description
This SROM-6x enhances ADNS-3090 sensor with 4 options of resolution selection. This document provides the guidelines on how to enable this feature.
That's quite a surprise, considering the older ROM allowed for two (or maybe three?).
Code:
Maximum Resolution
This SROM-6x supports programmable resolution up to maximum 4000 dpi for both X and Y axis. Please refer to register 0x0A setting below for resolution configuration.
Until I see that implemented I won't believe it much. If you have only 4000/1600/800/400 CPI steps it only would make sense if there could be interpolation (which Roccat negates) or the 400/800CPI difference, like 400 on the Y axis and 800 on the X axis. Not a bad initiative if the implementation is good.
Code:
RES[1:0]
00: 800 dpi
01: 1600 dpi
10: 3200 dpi
11: 4000 dpi
3. After loading the SROM, the default dpi would be ~ 400 dpi, you will need to write to register 0x0A to get the expected dpi as above.
Looks like they're negating the 3200CPI step, or are not testing their luck by setting it back, or think about all the low-sensers out there (thank you! It seemed we were about to get extinguished with so many OVER9000CPI!!! mice).
Code:
4. There are two separate enhance SROMs available for angle snapping function enable and disable, please contact your field support for the correct SROM version and functionality
That piece also looks good, seems like Avago has learnt from the old times of the 3060 that the end costumers (users like you and me) might have some very strong preferences so it's interesting to allow us to choose.

Overall it feels like the sensor might be quite solid, which is going to be a great selling point for Roccat (and one of the first mice from that company with a great sensor for low sensers and 1:1 ratio users.

Assuming this is a possible registry setting.
