If it was, it would mean that programming the SROM for the A9500 is extremely hard, as they did not even get an updated SROM out to fix the accel.

So if it was a software bug, it would mean bad news for Avago - would mean they did either hold back the newest SROM for profit, or their software team is having a very hard time to get a reliable SROM out, which doesn't speak wonders of them either.

So I'm closer to think it's a tiny hardware defect noticed after manufacturing ramped up - now that would make sense wink.gif

Or they don't care or see it as a problem. More plausible wink.gif

They know and they don't care, because they know the thing will sell like hot cake and make them a load of moneys.

There you can see the sensor. And on the bottom right are the mice including the Taipan.
So it is the same sensor as in the Mamba and Imperator.
With all its good and bad aspects?

They inserted that link into the Taipan sub page too.

Yes... only that it's not the case. ^^

It doesn't have to be that way just because they call it a 4G sensor mouse. I think Razer refers to it's 4G sensors to being just a combination of 1 laser and 1 optical sensor. Which laser and which optical sensor there actually is built in doesn't matter for them right now. I'm pretty sure it's pure marketing as putting the Taipan's sensor above the one's of the Mamba, Imperator etc. would probably hurt their sales too much as it would be treated as an inferior sensor even by those who have no clue what really is in there.

Think about the Average Joe who goes to shop for a new mouse and sees various offerings from Razer with big badges of "4G sensor" on the most (even more expensive mice) and on just the Taipan "4.5G" or "5G". He would probably be tempted to buy either the Taipan or a product from the competition if he doesn't like the Taipan, because why should he buy into older Razer tech?

And cutting a long story short: The pics of the prototype clearly show an image correlation sensor instead of their usual twin-eye stuff.

Although to be honest I would be pretty happy with a Taipan with PTE sensor as long as they finally realize that their idiotic dynamic DPI scaling messes things up. Their 4G Imperator worked perfectly when combined with an hard surface apart from that DPI scaling acceleration thingy. Saying this I realize that there's actually not too much hope for an acceleration fixed ADNS 9800 either... I mean if they knowingly activated horrible acceleration into the the 3.5G and 4G PTE mice why would they even care about the way more subtle acceleration in the ADNS 9800?

So I guess it's best to wait for the first reviews. Or users here in the forum that bought one (in July)

I'm willing to bet that it has acceleration, but Razer is certainly a special case in this matter, so idk. Avago themselves don't really care even acknowledge it as an issue.

What it is: A special SROM variant of the DIP-16 laserstream architecture. Likely to have custom DPI steps and or higher IPS/Accel/FPS ratings. The 2nd Sensor has to be considerably smaller unless Razer and their current OEM have some elaborate design planned up.

I plan on buying one upon release. Hopefully Amazon has them stocked as I would like to avoid purchasing directly from Razershop.
