Value can be added to a product after it has been released in the form of firmware and software updates and that is exactly what Patriot Memory has done with the new V560 upgrade software. Usually firmware/software updates are essentially applied as fixes to previously found bugs but the V560 software upgrade is different in that it extends the existing functionality of the Viper V560 mouse quite a bit. Patriot introduces a new “Zero Delay” feature which improves the response time down to a scant 1.17ms (compared to the 13.77ms on average gaming mice). The lift-off distance feature has also been improved for adaptability so that a wider range of mousepad surfaces are supported.
The good news does not stop there as Patriot has also introduced an auto-DPI function and has increased the DPI range from 50 to 12,000. The LED function has been modified as well with the option to disable to eliminate distractions and adjust the color profiles. More information is available on the press release below:
Patriot Develops New Enhancements to V560 Gaming Mouse Software
Update your gaming mouse without the added price tag
FREMONT, CALIF., USA – February 8, 2016 – Patriot, a leading manufacturer of computer memory, SSDs, flash storage solutions, mobile accessories and gaming peripherals has released a new version of its V560 gaming mouse software.
The V560, Patriot’s first offering in the gaming mouse market and part of the company’s Viper line, made its debut to the public in early November. Initially featuring 8200DPI, five customizable profiles with color indicator, nine programmable buttons, up to 29.4g of adjustable weights and two interchangeable grips for even more customization, the V560 was set at a starting MSRP of $49.99.
Patriot’s latest updates to the Viper software give the V560 new features making it one of the most versatile mice available on the market. The new Zero Delay feature, which increases response time from click to computer, propels the V560’s button response time to the top of the market. After a comparative test, the V560 returned an MCU response time of 1.17ms while the average response time from competing mice was 13.77ms. An added Lift Feature allows the mouse to adapt to any surface it travels upon, accounting for wide movements and the possibility of leaving the surface of the mousepad without disrupting any activity the user is engaged in.
In addition, Patriot has further expanded the functionality and customization of the V560 to better support the needs of gamers everywhere by incorporating an Auto DPI function that can be set to detect the speed of the mouse’s acceleration and adjust the DPI accordingly. This makes the Auto DPI setting an advantageous tool to utilize while battling in the latest FPS game where accuracy is the key to success.
Patriot has also increased the DPI range of the V560 to a minimum of 50 and a maximum of 12,000 and added RGB profile settings for even more customization. The update to the color profiles also gives users the option to turn off the breathing light of the mouse to remove any potential of distraction during intense gaming or work moments.
The new update to the V560 software is available for download on Patriot’s website. Customers who have previously purchased the V560 are encouraged to download and update their existing software.
