Introduction

EVGA TORQ X5

The mouse, at one time, was considered one of the most simplistic peripherals, and has evolved quickly to keep pace with the more sophisticated software programs and games of today. Many years ago, the functionality was quite basic. Most mice had two main buttons, minimal customization and a useable design void of comfort, style and color.

EVGA, which was founded in July 1999, originally produced video cards and motherboards, but since 2010 has expanded its product line to cover, but not limited to, power supplies, monitors, CPU coolers, cases and mice.

Today a person has a plethora of choices when considering peripherals. Choice could be considered a founding principle on the evolution of all electronics; however mice have always pushed the envelope to ensure their place amongst modern computer hardware.

These essential components come in various sizes, colours, and functionality. Configuration can go from easy to complex, and allow for some truly amazing customization. Not only are they wireless versions, but ambidextrous, and programmable, which goes a long way to please different sections of the population.

EVGA has produced the TORQ X5 to be a gaming mouse.  At first glance, it is very evident that EVGA is serious about gaming, and the larger gaming community, when designing their hardware.
