We reviewed the Viper 560 which came away with a Top Pick Award and now the company has revealed their latest gaming mouse. The Viper V570 RGB Blackout Edition. The Viper V570 claims to have an “Xtreme” precision laser sensor capable of up to 12,000 DPI. There are also multi-zone customizable RGB LED lights and what Patriot calls, “advanced MMO+FPS all-in-one ergonomics.
