Gigabyte Aivia M8600 Mouse Review


The mouse we have on hand today is a bit of a rarity in gaming circles, it’s wireless.

Wireless tends to be frowned upon when it comes to gaming devices as the combination of interference, lag and the ever-important battery life mean that the vast majority of rodents that are designed for the gaming fraternity come wired.

Gigabyte are hoping to change all that with their newest mouse, the Aivia M8600. As well as being a sharply designed piece of hardware it comes in the most surprising packaging we’ve seen for a very long time indeed. 

But we’re getting ahead of ourselves. Time for the specs.

Technical Specifications

As with many gaming mice around the sensor on the M8600 goes up to 5600dpi, although software interpolation can up that to 6500dpi. 150 Inches per second speed and 50g acceleration is also up there with the main gaming mice.
