Owl-Eye is an optical sensor from PixArt, modified to the high and exacting standards of ROCCAT®. Taking its inspiration from the natural world, it boasts a real and responsive feeling that’s instantly recognizable. What you recognize is a lethal sensor that simply feels more alive, translating your mouse movements on screen with unrelenting accuracy and consistency. Owl-Eye provides you with a level of control that feels natural and innate, bridging the gap between you and your game.
As apex predators, owls are feared by their prey. What makes them so deadly is their legendary eyesight, which is what inspired ROCCAT® when working on the Owl-Eye sensor. Their vision is characterized by the stunning ability to rapidly analyze and process its surroundings with lethal efficiency. Owl-Eye mirrors this relentless precision, providing gamers with what feels like a natural extension of their body, for a unique, real-feeling experience that’s as intuitive as it is effective.
We developed the world-beating Owl-Eye by modifying PixArt’s leading optical sensor to our needs, to provide a new level of optimization and synergy for our mice. What’s special about Owl-Eye is the feeling. It translates your mouse movements on screen with 1:1 accuracy. That makes it as responsive as it is consistent, for unrelenting pointer precision.The sensor can be configured in terms of its dpi, adjustable in 100-dpi steps. from 100 to 12000, although we recommend a golden range of 400 – 3000dpi.
9/10 professional gamers choose a dpi under 2000 due to the undesirable smoothing that occurs at dpis above that – in every sensor. Our own ROCCAT® pros do the same. When developing Owl-Eye, we focused on accuracy and responsiveness within the golden range of 400 – 3000dpi, and we guarantee the highest possible precision within that range. Of course, big-resolution couch gamers and flick shot lovers can rest assured that Owl-Eye also performs great with dpis up to 12000, and its lift-off distance can be configured in Swarm thanks to the ROCCAT®-pioneered Distance Control Unit (DCU).
