WHY IT’S IMPORTANT
Once you’ve found your perfect mouse, selecting the right mat to support it is vital to maximizing its performance, so you can game to your fullest potential. To decide which Razer mat is the one for you, it comes down to two things: mouse sensitivity and mat surface.
MOUSE DPI SETTINGS
Dots per inch (DPI) is a measurement of how many pixels are displaced on screen for every inch of physical mouse movement. In general, the lower your DPI setting is, the larger motion (and mat surface) you will require to move the cursor across the screen.
The right mat should have a surface that complements your playstyle and favorite game genre. With a full range of options, let’s break down what each type offers and how it can help your game.
