Introduction

It is natural for any growing company to look for diversification. For EVGA, a company known for their high quality GPU cards and gaming motherboards, growth has led them to seek further attention from gamers. The company already released several high performance PSUs and a few cases when their first gaming peripheral, the Torq X10 gaming mouse, arrived at our labs. We will be taking a quick look at it and see what it can offer to gamers and advanced users in today's capsule review.

Key features and specifications

  • Max DPI: 8200
  • Sensor Type: Laser (Avago 9800)
  • Main Switch Type: Omron - 20 Million Click Lifecycle
  • Programmable Buttons: 9
  • Min/Max Weight: 121G/134G (without cable)
  • Max Polling/Report Rate: 1000Hz
  • LED Color: Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Orange, Pink, Purple
  • Feet Type: Low Friction PTFE

  • Length: 4.5in - 114.3mm
  • Width: 2.25in - 57.15mm

The specifications are good, though naturally there's more to a mouse than paper specifications. The Torq X10 includes programmable buttons, adjustable weight, profile and macro support, and adjustable DPI sensor.

  • Onboard storage can support up to 5 separate profiles
  • Ambidextrous design supports right or left handed gamers
  • Adjustable height system supports all gamers
  • Adjustable DPI up to 8200 DPI with On-the-Fly Sensitivity adjustment
  • Adjustable weight system
  • Highest quality materials including silver coated wire and Omron switches (20 million click life cycle)
  • Robust software allows full control over mouse including Macro setup, profiles and OSD
  • Super low friction PTFE mouse feet

Packaging and bundle

We received the EVGA Torq X10 in a well-designed, wedge-shaped package. The mouse can be clearly seen beneath the clear top of the package, which envelops the mouse and allows for a rough hands-on experience when browsing at a local shop.

Inside the box, we found six cylindrical weights, Teflon feet, an adjustment tool, and a very basic quick-start guide. There is no media with the drivers/software of the mouse; the user will have to download it from EVGA's website. Furthermore, do not fear if you accidentally lose the tool; it is a simple Torx T10 screwdriver that can be easily found at most tool shops or online. Ostensibly, the Torx T10 screw is what gave this mouse its name.

    As far as I know I have large hands, but not enormous, yet every mouse I've ever tried has been a natural claw grip for me. They all feel like silly little toys. Never did own an old-school Boomslang. Those looked pretty big. Reply

    I also tried the G502 mouse and I have smallish hands for a guy. I still felt that my pinky was being dragged across the mat! The mouse went back... I'm still using my Deathadder but I would really like to find a decent claw grip mouse.... Reply

    What mouse would you recommend for larger hands? Reply

    I'm still happily using a logitech g5 from ages past. There are only two things that could ever be improved on it:
    1. a few more DPI (like 2400 rather than 1600, but not 8000)
    2. programming 5 custom DPI levels to the mouse without reliance on drivers. I can't tell you how many times programs bypass the drivers and all of a sudden my DPI settings are wonked.

    All of this other stuff is just to get you to pay a lot of money. The best gaming mouse today should be $50.

    when are there going to be usb 3.0 mice? they would provide lower latency and greater battery life. Reply

    What on earth makes you think that? Reply

    The battery life on wired mice is phenomenal. Reply

    Well, his logic is 3 is more than 2, so it outta be better, right? :) Reply

    The polling rate for USB 3.0 is actually slower, so it'd be worse. Reply
