Mionix, a Swedish manufacturer of professional high-end gaming accessories, today unveiled the new Sargas and Ensis range of gaming mousepads developed with the company's own Surface Quality Analyser Tool (S.Q.A.T).

S.Q.A.T. is built into the Mionix NAOS 5000 gaming mouse and measures the data loss between images of the surface taken by the mouse sensor.  This information is translated in to a rating between 1 and 10, where a low number represents a higher data loss and a higher number represents a lower data loss between the surface and the mouse sensor.  Mionix claims that mousepads rated 8/10 or above will provide no loss of tracking and improved accuracy.

"We saw tracking issues that many professional gamers experienced, which lead to bad accuracy when moving the mouse very quickly in games. In most cases the issue was not created by the sensor solution in the gaming mouse, but instead was due to the users bad quality gaming surface which are not optimized for the gaming grade sensors used today," says Peter Nygren, CEO at Mionix AB.

The black coated Ensis 320 and hairline brushed Ensis 320 LUNA mousepads are constructed of super fine aluminium alloy.  They feature a 2mm low profile and super smooth surface.  Mionix rates the Ensis 320 as 10/10 and the Ensis 320 Luna as 8/10.

The uncoated microfiber of the Sargas range gives a smooth controlled friction glide with added agility to all gamers.  The Sargas range comes in three different sizes, all of which are rated 8/10.

All off these mousepads are now available at retailers such as NewEgg, Amazon, Micro Center, J&R, Canada Computers, and NCIX.
