Razer Viper V3 Pro Review – The Ultimate Lightweight Gaming Mouse

Razer Viper V3 Pro Review – The Razer Viper series has always held a special place in my heart. I feel it has the best form factor for my hands compared to their other series like Mamba, DeathAdder, etc. The predecessors, such as the Viper V3 HyperSpeed and Viper V2 Pro, were impressive in terms of design, comfort, and performance, so it’s no surprise that I was excited about reviewing the latest Viper V3 Pro model.

Thankfully, the new mouse delivers and brings myriad improvements across the board.



In summary, as Razer puts it, the new Viper V3 Pro is lighter, faster, and better. The Black edition of the mouse weighs 54 grams, and the White edition, which is the review unit I have, weighs 55 grams. The V2 Pro was 58 grams, so the new model is about 3 grams lighter. Considering that this is a wireless gaming mouse requiring a battery inside, this is an amazing engineering feat.

To achieve this light weight, the design team had to omit some features like RGB lighting, grippable materials, a compartment to store the receiver, and a few extra buttons. However, if you are a claw/fingertip gamer wanting the most comfortable, lightweight mouse, the Viper V3 Pro might be perfect. For professional gamers (or any gamers for that matter), RGB lighting is not essential anyway.

The mouse has a smooth finish but surprisingly doesn’t feel slippery, even when I have to lift it off the pad a few times (I normally play with 1600 DPI and 1.0 sensitivity on Overwatch 2)..

The Viper V3 Pro is actually a refined version of the Viper V3 HyperSpeed, with modifications based on feedback from professional players. These include a side button redesign, a raised hump for more comfort, more pronounced finger grooves on the left and right buttons, larger mouse feet, a ring finger ledge, and flatter sidewalls. These updates seem to pay off, as I really like how comfortable the mouse is and how good the grip feels overall.

There is a Power/DPI switch button at the bottom of the mouse. While I wish there were a more accessible button to switch DPI on top of the mouse, I’m glad I can at least assign the action to one of the side buttons.

As for battery life, Razer claims the mouse can last up to 95 hours, depending on usage intensity and the polling rate setting.


I used to complain when a gaming mouse became too light, making it harder to take careful shots when aiming. Surprisingly, I don’t find this issue with the Viper V3 Pro. Even more surprisingly, it didn’t take me long at all to adjust to its weight and shape.

Performance-wise, the Razer Viper V3 Pro is powered by Razer’s latest and most precise optical sensor, the Focus Pro 35K Optical Sensor Gen-2, with 99.8% resolution accuracy. You can transfer your previous mouse’s DPI settings to the Viper V3 Pro and make DPI adjustments with single-step increments. The sensor also has intelligent features like Smart Tracking and Motion Sync. Feel free to check out the sensor capabilities on Razer page.

Combined with 750 IPS, 70G Max Acceleration, and up to 8,000Hz Polling Rate, the Viper V3 Pro is fast, responsive, and super accurate. Through Razer Synapse, you can set the 8,000Hz polling rate to activate only when you are playing games (to save battery life), which is pretty neat. If your PC can’t support it, you can set it to 1,000Hz, 2,000Hz, or 4,000Hz.

My new PC, thankfully, supports 8,000Hz polling rate without issues. My PC Specs are:

When playing Overwatch 2, the Razer Viper V3 Pro never fails me. For the DPS role, I usually opt for playing Cassidy or Ashe, two characters who reward you for having good aiming skill and a good gaming mouse. With the Viper V3 Pro, it’s really easy to make flick shots and track enemies, thanks to the latest sensor.

Being wireless, I have no complaints about latencies, as it’s powered by Razer HyperSpeed Wireless tech with ultra-low latency and auto-switching to a better wireless frequency if needed behind the scenes.

Here are some Overwatch 2 montage with the Razer Viper V3 Pro:


The Razer Viper V3 Pro lives up to the high standards set by its predecessors, offering significant improvements in weight, design, and performance. By reducing the weight to just 54 grams (55 grams for the White edition) without compromising on functionality, Razer has created a remarkably agile and comfortable mouse. The design changes, influenced by feedback from professional players, make the Viper V3 Pro even more ergonomic and user-friendly, with features like a redesigned side button, a raised hump for added comfort, and larger mouse feet for better stability.

Performance-wise, the Viper V3 Pro excels with its Razer Focus Pro 35K Optical Sensor Gen-2, delivering pinpoint accuracy and responsiveness with up to an 8,000Hz polling rate. This mouse handles everything from casual gaming sessions to intense, competitive play seamlessly, thanks to its cutting-edge sensor technology and ultra-low latency HyperSpeed Wireless connectivity.

While some features like RGB lighting and additional buttons were sacrificed to achieve the lighter weight, the core functionalities and the gaming experience it offers are top-notch. The long battery life of up to 95 hours ensures that you can game for extended periods without constantly worrying about recharging.

The Razer Viper V3 Pro is a standout choice for gamers seeking a high-performance, lightweight, and ergonomic wireless mouse. It combines the best of Razer’s design and technological innovations to deliver a superior gaming experience. Whether you’re a professional esports player or a casual gamer, the Viper V3 Pro is a worthy addition to your gaming arsenal.

Razer Viper V3 Pro has now become my primary gaming mouse, it just excels at everything with no gimmicks. Razer Viper V3 Pro is available now for purchase at retailers around Australia and Razer Store with RRP of A$279. Also available at Amazon.
