EVGA TORQ X5 Overview
The EVGA TORQ X5 has a nice overall look and feel to it. EVGA has gone with a white / black color design, which looks really good. The mouse actually has an ambidextrous design so if you are left-handed or right-handed gamer EVGA has got you covered with this mouse.
The TORQ X5 has what I would call a small and thin design, so it is not overly large and does not have a claw-style design. The mouse has the official dimensions of 4.64 x 2.55 x 1.53 in (LxWxH) and weighs in at 85g so it is very light. This type of mouse is great for FPS games in my opinion. There is an EVGA logo on the back part of the mouse that will light up during operation.
Starting at the top of the mouse you have your two main mouse buttons, which use OMRON switches. These switches are rated for a 20 million click lifecycle. At the center of the mouse is the scroll wheel which also has a click function as well. The center of the scroll wheel has a rubber coating so you finger gets good grip and is comfortable. Moving down there is a profile switch button and 3 LEDs that will let you know the DPI level that you are on.
The left side of the mouse has two larger rectangular-style buttons. The bottom part of each side of the mouse has a tougher rubberized feel to it which will give you a better grip.
The opposite side of the mouse also has two more rectangular-style buttons. This gives you a total of 8 programmable buttons. The mouse has the ability to save up to 5 profiles with its 512K of onboard memory.
Flipping the mouse over we can take a closer look at the optical sensor. EVGA makes use of a Pixart 3988 optical mouse that has DPI adjustment up to 6400 DPI. There are also three mouse feet on the bottom of the mouse that will help it glide across your mousepad. An unlabeled button on the bottom of the mouse will switch profiles on the mouse.
The cable on the mouse is braided, which is something that I always like to see on gaming mice.
