SteelSeries Launches New Rival 3 Gaming Mouse and Apex Gaming Keyboards

SteelSeries goes after boring office peripherals with new line of high-performance gaming gear accessible for any gamer.  SteelSeries, the leader in gaming and esports peripherals, today announces the Rival 3 gaming mouse, and Apex 3 and Apex 5 gaming keyboards – high performance gaming peripherals approachable for any gamer. With these products, SteelSeries has sought to bring the innovation and performance of its most premium offerings to a wider audience of gamers.


Rival 3
Outshine the Competition Featuring unique and brilliant RGB lighting, a new performance-focused sensor and unreal levels of durability, the Rival 3 outshines the competition. The Rival 3 is a full-fledged gaming mouse with cutting-edge technology purposefully designed at an affordable price for gamers.

The Rival 3 is built of a hyper-durable polymer for incredible durability, in a lightweight 77 g form factor. The Rival 3 features SteelSeries’ new TrueMove Core optical sensor. The TrueMove Core is a huge leap in sensor performance at this price range. Traditionally, gaming companies use regular desktop sensors in mice at this price point, but SteelSeries, in collaboration with PixArt, has built a brand-new gaming sensor just for the Rival 3. The TrueMove Core 8,500 CPI sensor was designed for precise performance with true 1-to-1 tracking, so the exact motions of the mouse are perfectly replicated on the screen.

The Rival 3 also features switches that are rated for 60M clicks and on-board memory to save up to five CPI profiles and is fully customizable through SteelSeries Engine.

The Rival 3 is available now globally for $29.99.

Apex 3
Outshine the Competition The water-resistant Apex 3 is a full-fledged gaming keyboard created by combining SteelSeries’ cutting-edge technology with 10-zone RGB lighting, whisper-quiet gaming switches and gaming-grade anti-ghosting – making it a keyboard truly built for gaming. The Apex 3 is IP32 water resistant to prevent damage from accidental spills. The Apex 3 uses SteelSeries’ new low-friction switches for near silent use and unmatched durability, with performance guaranteed for over 20 million keypresses.

Just like the premium Apex Pro line, the Apex 3 comes with a similar high-quality magnetic wrist rest, the same dedicated media keys and clickable metal roller, and three-way cable routing system underneath the board. Its gaming-grade anti-ghosting also ensures the keyboard will always correctly register every press, so gamers can play faster and more accurately.

The Apex 3 is available now globally for $49.99.

Apex 5
The Best of Both Worlds The Apex 5’s hybrid switches combine the smoothness of a membrane switch, with the added durability, performance and satisfying tactile click of a blue mechanical switch for a gaming experience that combines the best aspects of membrane and mechanical switches.

Built using the same cutting-edge technology as our Pro line, the Apex 5 also includes a premium magnetic wrist rest, aircraft-grade aluminium build, OLED Smart Display, media controls and volume roller, and customizable per-key RGB lighting. Users can customize the OLED screen with GIFs, view on-the-fly information from games like CS:GO and Dota2, view song information on TIDAL, incoming Discord messages, settings and more.

The Apex 5 is available now globally for $99.99.
