The five Razer mice with this polling update are the Razer Viper V2, the Razer DeathAdder V3 Pro, the Razer Cobra Pro, the Razer Basilisk V3 Pro, and the Razer Viper V3 HyperSpeed. Owners of these mice should first update their Razer Synapse app to the latest version.

They should then see a link under their supported mouse product in the Synapse app that states, “Firmware update available“. Then can click on the link to be taken to the firmware updater site, which can be downloaded so users can get the 8,000KHz polling update.

Razer states in a press release that normal mice have a 1,000KHz polling rate. Downloading this firmware update will help these five Razer mouse products increase the amount of data from the mouse to the PC by 8 times.

 

Not only did Razer add the 8K Hz polling rate to these mice but they also addressed some issues and made some other improvements to them with the firmware version 2.0 as follows for each model (improvements/fixes are in Bold Italic for each model):

Basilisk V3 Pro: Improved button click latency. Added Dynamic lighting support, smart dimming, and start up animation feature. Improved Bluetooth connectivity stability. Fixed incorrect profile name issue. Fixed get profile 5 button assignment fail issue. Improved wireless battery life.

Cobra Pro: Improved button click latency. Fixed the issue of not showing charging UI when the device is on Bluetooth mode. Fixed the incorrect profile name issue. Fixed polling rate issue in wired mode. Fixed the issue of mouse not working after the system powered on.

DeathAdder V3 Pro: Improved button click latency. Fixed long distance between dongle and mouse cause wrong mouse data report. Fixed the issue of unable cycle up sensitivity Stages when using wired mode. Fixed charging issue.

Viper V2 Pro: Improved button click latency. Fixed long distance between dongle and mouse that cause wrong mouse data report. Fixed the issue of unable to cycle up sensitivity stages when using wired mode. Fixed charging issue.

This is something you would have to contact Razer about directly and ask them, but if I had to guess... it could be in the works and just isn’t ready for prime release yet.

Razer Cobra Pro: Fixed the issue of mouse not working after the system powered on. 

Nice that i got my new Cobra yesterday...updated everything…. and after the start of the PC today there was no Cobra availible :D Wire plug out and in again solve the problem, but thats not a solution of the problem. Hopefully the Support Guy can help me in a couple of days.
