As with its predecessor, the Razer Basilisk V3 Pro is a right-hand ergonomic mouse with nearly identical dimensions. At 112g, it is slightly heavier than the Razer Basilisk Ultimate, though only by a mere five grams. In addition to the underglow RGB lighting effect, new features on the Basilisk V3 Pro include a new 4-way tilt-enabled scroll wheel called the HyperScroll Tilt Wheel. This wheel enables users to choose between four scrolling modes — tactile cycling, free spin scrolling, smart-reel mode, and virtual acceleration mode.
Other changes to the Razer Basilisk V3 Pro include improved connectivity options — beginning with the addition of support for Bluetooth Low Energy mode and support for USB-C connectivity for wired usage. Razer’s new 3rd generation optical mouse switches claim to reduce issues with double-clicking and also boast of improved tactility.
The click life cycle also sees a significant improvement over the Basilisk Ultimate (60 million clicks) thanks to its claimed life cycle of 90 million clicks. The mouse also uses a new generation of sensors with improved sensitivity (30,000 DPI vs. 20,000 DPI). While the polling rate remains the same at 1000 Hz, users can pair the Basilisk V3 Pro with the HyperPolling Wireless Dongle to enable a 4000 Hz polling rate.
