Key Features of XPG Alpha Wireless Gaming RGB Mouse:
Award-Winning Ergonomic Design
The ALPHA gaming mouse sports simple and elegant curved contours with a comfortable grip that reflect XPG’s industrial design language, called “:Exoskeleton”. The design philosophy emphasizes a balance between form and function, with a focus on ergonomics.
By studying data from a large pool of diverse subjects using XPG’s AI driven hand scanning application, XPG was able to determine the optimal mouse shape. For example, the overall width of the mouse is derived from averaging finger measurements collected to create a device with an ideal grip size.

On the inside, XPG ALPHA will impress too. Equipped with an energy-efficient, high-performance PAW-3335 sensor from Pixart, it provides a range of DPI settings from 100 to 16000 to meet the requirements of all types of games.
