SteelSeries Xai is a tool – not a gadget.
The SteelSeries Xai Laser Mouse features state of the art technology and groundbreaking technical specifications. The technology, shape, size, weight and surface of the SteelSeries Xai were designed with one purpose: to enhance the performance. Research and development was done in close cooperation with fulltime professional gamers from USA, Europe and Asia. The sensor offers huge improvement over current laser mice, processing 12,000 Frames Per Second at movement speeds of 150+ Inches Per Second. This level of performance results in completely reliable tracking even during the most frantic and fast-paced games. SteelSeries Xai can be fully configured via a LCD menu system on the back of the mouse, while supporting advanced macro capabilities of up to 200 strokes per button programmable through the lean software.
Expert users will appreciate the SteelSeries FreeMove, SteelSeries ExactSens, SteelSeries ExactAim, SteelSeries ExactRate, the automatic lift distance calibration and other sensor innovations from SteelSeries.
Best-in-class technology Featuring a state of the art laser sensor offering you consistent and reliable performance, the SteelSeries Xai boasts 10.8 megapixel HD image correlation at up to 12,000 frames per second and the ability to handle tracking movements of up to 150 inches per second.
Advanced macros On the SteelSeries Xai you can record 8 macros for key combinations that can be up to 200 different keystrokes and with a precise timing of sequences. This allows you to setup common commands and shortcuts that enhance your actions per minute and ensures that you don’t accidentally hit the wrong key and miss out on important in-game sequences.
True sensitivity SteelSeries ExactSens allows you to control how fast your pointer should move by adjusting your CPI in increments of 1 between 100-5001. This means, the SteelSeries Xai offers you true hardware based sensitivity settings, freeing you of interpolation from game software. To take advantage of ExactSens you need to deactivate any cursor acceleration and set your sensitivity settings in-game (sensitivity 1 or adjust your sensitivity slider to lowest possible setting) and on your operating system to default.
Tracks on any surface SteelSeries ExactAim makes it possible to adjust the way the SteelSeries Xai gets information from the laser sensor. For instance, if you have a surface that is not optimized for gaming, then you can now simply adjust the jitter and prediction corrections. For optimal use of the Xai we strongly recommend the SteelSeries 9HD mousepad, which was developed simultaneously with the Xai and features a prism-like textured surface for maximum performance for next generation mice.
Personalized path correction setting SteelSeries FreeMove eliminates path correction, which makes the mouse predict, correct and make your movement straight. With the SteelSeries Xai, you can adjust the amount of path correction or completely disable it for 100% control of your movement. For FPS games that require high precision, this is a crucial feature.
Pro gamer profiles The SteelSeries Xai allows you to configure and store up to 5 profiles on the mouse. This helps you easily switch between profiles when playing different games or performing tasks on your computer that require different levels of sensitivity and precision. You can also exchange your setting profiles with other Xai users as well as try downloading a profile from a few of SteelSeries’ professional gamers who’ve used the Xai to win major global tournaments.
