MSI has officially unveiled the CLUTCH GM41 LIGHTWEIGHT WIRELESS gaming mouse. This marks our first foray into producing a lightweight wireless gaming mouse which, as its namesake suggests, is constructed from lightweight materials with wireless capabilities suitable for competitive gaming. Such mice have gained popularity in recent times especially amongst competitive FPS gamers who want very agile mice that are not hampered by any drag from a cable.
This product launch follows the wired CLUTCH GM41 LIGHTWEIGHT which was released in February 2021. The newly announced wireless version shares the same symmetrical design, the same lightweight plastic material, and packs the same features within an impressive 74g weight that includes the built-in battery. PTFE skates underneath the mouse provide a smooth glide across surfaces and rubber side grips help keep a firm grip in the hand. The latest 2.4G wireless technology is incorporated to reduce transmission latency to just 1ms resulting in responsiveness almost 10 times faster than the typical wireless mouse on the market.
Battery life lasts up to 80 hours on a full charge. A full recharge from 0% to 100% takes 90 minutes, but gamers who need to quickly return to the game can charge the mouse for 10 minutes to get up to 9 hours of battery life. Alternatively, gamers can keep playing by inserting the included USB cable directly into the mouse. The provided battery lifetimes may vary depending on usage and environmental conditions.
Clutch GM41 LIGHTWEIGHT WIRELESS is built around a PIXART PAW-3370 sensor rated for 20000 DPI sensitivity and 400 IPS movement tracking. Also located on the underside of the mouse is a DPI switch as a means to reduce weight. Putting DPI controls on the top-center of the mouse would require additional circuitry and material. Under the left and right buttons are durable OMRON switches rated to last over 60 million clicks. MSI Dragon Center software is supported and can be used to customize various mouse settings including the RGB lighting.
Included with the mouse are a USB dongle, dedicated charging dock, and an extra FRIXION FREE CABLE for wired gaming. On the mouse, a recessed channel where a USB cable can directly plugin can also store the USB dongle during traveling.
