Today, Razer announced the successors to its MMO-centric modular gaming mouse with the Razer Naga V2 Hyperspeed and V2 Pro. Both models have a similar design to Razer’s older models of the Naga range, but include some interesting hardware changes.

Designed as the more budget-friendly option, the $99.99 Razer Naga V2 Hyperspeed still has the 12 macro buttons placed under your right thumb, but also has a few extra buttons in the top left edge of the mouse, directly to the left of your index finger, similar to what we saw with the Razer DeathAdder V2 X Unlike the Naga X however, the V2 does not have an interchangeable button panel.

the more expensive Razer Naga V2 Pro, priced at $179.99, brings back Naga’s signature interchangeable side panel, which lets you switch between two, six, or 12 macro buttons, giving it more flexibility depending on the type of game you’re playing. Twelve buttons may be exaggerated when playing Apex Legendsbut having that option to casually grind through an MMO like Final Fantasy XIV or World of Warcraft is pretty cool. While the V2 Pro gets the option to choose how many buttons it has, it lacks the extra pair of buttons on the V2 Hyperspeed, which seems like a strange omission.

The V2 Pro also features a version of Razer’s HyperScroll wheel that we first saw with the Razer Basilisk V2, which allows you to scroll quickly by gently moving the scroll wheel in either direction. However, the scroll wheel on the Naga V2 Pro has the ability to fine-tune the tension and speed of scrolling through Razer’s Synapse software.

Both models have Bluetooth and 2.4Ghz wireless connectivity, but Razer opted for an AA battery-powered design instead of a rechargeable internal battery with the V2 Hyperspeed, like the DeathAdder V2 X. The V2 Pro, on the other hand, is rechargeable via USB-C and is also compatible with Razer’s new wireless charging system, introduced with the Razer Basilisk V3 Pro. The V2 Hyperspeed and V2 Pro also use the same 30K DPI Focus Pro optical sensor and have a 1000Hz polling rate.
