By  Eward Castellanos 2020-01-18 3685 39

Today to give you about the high-end game engine, the protagonist of this issue is a symbol of the high-end PMW3360 optical engine!

What is the mouse optical engine?

Since it is called the engine to show that this part has a special effect on the mouse, in fact, the optical engine is the core component of the optical mouse, and the performance of the optical engine often directly determines the level of the optical mouse. The

Optical engine consists of a CMOS image sensor and an optical positioning DSP (digital signal processor). The former is responsible for collecting images and synchronizing them into binary digital image matrices, while DSP is responsible for analyzing and comparing adjacent image matrices, based on which the position offset of the mouse is calculated. To put it bluntly, the

Engine is equivalent to the heart of the mouse. as the core component of the mouse, the hardware performance of the mouse engine determines the quality of the mouse, and it has become a watershed between the middle-and high-end mouse and the low-end mouse. The mouse engine determines most of the hardware performance of the entire mouse. From the sampling rate to the refresh rate, and then to the acceleration and moving speed, the hardware performance parameters of these mice all depend on the performance of the mouse engine.

High-end symbol PMW3360 engine

Original phase PMW3360 optical engine parameters

Original phase PMW3360 optical engine DPI can reach 12000, with a maximum moving speed greater than 250IPS and can withstand 50G acceleration, it can be seen that the parameters are several times higher than the A3050 engine mentioned in the previous issue.

Since Anhuagao was acquired by original Phase, the original phase of optical engines throughout the high-end market, now the common optical engines are PMW3310, PMW3320, PMW3325, PMW3360. Why is the PMW3360 optical engine a high-end symbol? Nowadays, the engines used by many peripheral manufacturers' own high-end mice are customized on the basis of PMW3360. For example, Logitech uses PMW3366, to represent Logitech G502, G900 and G403 game mice; Thunder Snake uses PMW3389, as the elite version of purgatory Viper game mouse; Sailui's PMW3360 representative products include rival700 and rival500 game mice. Thus it can be seen that PMW3360 is the star product of overseas manufacturers!

Using PMW3360 optical engine in addition to the above-mentioned products that everyone is familiar with, there are also some distinctive products worthy of concern.

Most stable: CyrSensi & amp;Rival 310Game Mouse

Siri Rival310&Sensei310 Game Mouse uses the so-called first real 1: 1 sensor in the field of e-sports-TrueMove3 Optical engine (enhanced by PMW3360 customization), which is in deep cooperation with the original phase, which strengthens the performance of e-sports on the powerful performance of the PMW3360 sensor. DPI:12000,IPS:350+, can withstand acceleration: 50G.

Speaking of 1: 1 accuracy, that is, no acceleration and deceleration, frame skipping and straight line correction, completely original and completely accurate. Sailor's TureMove3 can achieve 1-to-1 pixel tracking accuracy in the 100-3500DPI range without jitter. In the 3500-12000DPI range, through customized SROM (Secure Read Only Memory secure read-only memory) provides the best anti-jitter effect on the market today. The stability of the mouse has the ultimate pursuit of players, this mouse will definitely make you satisfied.

The most cost-effective: Raytheon Heresy Mouse

Raytheon M505 Game Mouse uses the original PMW 3360 engine, the highest 12000DPI mouse resolution, five-speed shortcut key adjustment, support the highest rate of return of 1000Hz,; equipped with a life-long life of up to 50 million OMRON Blue Dot 50m fretting, and support 16 million color RGB backlight.

Raytheon officially made a variety of optimizations for the PMW3360 engine chip, so that it can adapt to a variety of application scenarios. For example, before calibration, the small curve of the mouse movement track can be automatically optimized into a straight line, which has an advantage in FPS games and is more suitable for aiming operation; or surface calibration, which can automatically identify desktop materials and improve pointer response speed; In addition, the T-shaped RGB magic lights have improved the appearance of the mouse a lot, the reference price of this mouse is only 279 yuan, the performance-to-price ratio has become the biggest bright spot.

Best grip: ZOWIE EC-B Game Mouse

ZOWIE GEAR Mouse has three series of EC-A, FK and ZA, all of which are resident equipment on the FPS field, and the two products of the EC-A series, EC1-A and EC2-A, are the star products, which are loved and sought after by many FPS professionals.
