Raw Performance

The LAMZU Atlantis Mini 4K is a lightweight, wireless gaming mouse that continues LAMZU's Atlantis lineup of gaming mice. It shares the same symmetrically shaped body as the LAMZU Atlantis but is smaller. It has a smooth matte plastic finish and a clear plastic frame on the underside of the mouse instead of a solid baseplate like most mice. It uses PixArt's flagship 3395 sensor and supports a maximum wireless polling rate of 4000Hz.

Our Verdict

7.0 Work

The LAMZU Atlantis Mini 4K is decent for work use despite not being explicitly designed for it. It has a comfortable symmetrical shape that's well suited for most hand sizes, and it has solid-feeling build quality overall. You can connect it wirelessly with its USB receiver, but it doesn't support Bluetooth or multi-device pairing. It also lacks some features found on dedicated productivity mice, like L/R tilt inputs on the scroll wheel and a free-scrolling mode.

Pros
  • Symmetrical shape is comfortable for most hand sizes and grip types.
Cons
  • Lightweight baseplate design means the inside is open to dust and debris.
  • No Bluetooth connectivity or multi-device pairing.

Differences Between Sizes And Variants

The LAMZU Atlantis Mini 4K is only available in Charcoal Black, which is the colorway we bought and tested. The mouse doesn't have a label or serial number that's visible.

LAMZU sells a number of different models in their Atlantis lineup, each one with a regular and a 'mini' size variant. The newer 'Pro' and '4K' models have updated internals and support a higher polling rate of 4000Hz, though with the 'Pro', you have to purchase the 4K dongle separately. Due to the higher polling rate, we expect these models to perform better than the older versions. For more information, here's a blog post by LAMZU with a table explaining the differences between Atlantis models in greater detail.

The 'Atlantis OG' models are simply larger than the 'Atlantis Mini' models, and we expect them to perform similarly. You can see all the different models and variants in the tables below:

Older, discontinued, non-4k models:

Compared To Other Mice

The LAMZU Atlantis Mini 4K continues LAMZU's lightweight and symmetrical wireless gaming mice lineup. Its shape is a scaled-down but otherwise identical version of the full-sized Atlantis models. The models in the Atlantis lineup are split by size and whether they include the 4K wireless receiver necessary to enable a maximum polling rate of 4000Hz. This mouse includes said receiver, so it supports a 4000Hz polling rate out of the box.

This mouse offers top-tier performance that rivals other symmetrically shaped, wireless gaming mice like the Pulsar X2V2 (you might want to look at the Mini version if you're looking for something smaller) and the Razer Cobra Pro. Its shape differs from the competition in that its rear hump is rather wide and designed to fill out your palm, ideal for a claw grip.

For more recommendations, see our picks for the best gaming mouse, the best wireless gaming mouse, and the best lightweight mouse.

Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT 2

The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT 2 and the LAMZU Atlantis Mini 4K are lightweight, high-performance, wireless gaming mice. The Logitech has a larger, more rounded shape well-suited for any grip type, whereas the LAMZU is smaller and better suited for a claw grip. The Logitech supports a 2000Hz maximum polling rate, and the LAMZU supports a higher 4000Hz maximum polling rate. The LAMZU also has a baseplate design that leaves its interior open, which may allow dust and debris to enter the mouse.

Pulsar X2V2

The LAMZU Atlantis Mini 4K and the Pulsar X2V2 are lightweight, high-performance wireless gaming mice with symmetrical shapes. The LAMZU is slightly smaller but has a wider rear end, whereas the Pulsar has a straighter shape across the sides. The LAMZU natively supports a 4000Hz polling rate and has better click latency and sensor performance than the Pulsar. On the other hand, the Pulsar has better build quality.

LAMZU Atlantis

The LAMZU Atlantis and the LAMZU Atlantis Mini 4K are lightweight wireless gaming mice that are part of LAMZU's Atlantis lineup. The two mice have identical shapes, but the Mini is smaller, so it's more suitable for small and medium-sized hands. The Mini also supports a higher polling rate of 4000Hz and has better click latency and sensor performance overall. On the other hand, the Atlantis is bigger and better suited to those with large hands.

Razer Cobra Pro

The LAMZU Atlantis Mini 4K and the Razer Cobra Pro are high-performance wireless gaming mice with small, symmetrical shapes. The Razer has a more aggressive "gamer" aesthetic, with 11 customizable RGB zones. It's also compatible with Razer's HyperPolling Wireless Dongle, which is sold separately but increases the maximum polling rate to 8000Hz. The LAMZU, on the other hand, has a native maximum polling rate of 4000Hz. It's also lighter than the Razer but has a baseplate design that leaves its interior open, which may allow dust and debris to enter the mouse.

The LAMZU Atlantis Mini 4K has a matte black plastic body that looks and feels similar to other mice with the same finish in LAMZU's lineup, like the LAMZU THORN. It has a plastic framework on its underside that leaves the interior open. The scroll wheel has a black finish and a translucent, smokey gray rubberized grip. It has a small LED behind the left- and right-click buttons to indicate the battery level and another LED indicator that shines faintly through the baseplate to indicate your CPI setting.

Note: The 3D scanning tool has difficulty accurately capturing depth on the underside of this mouse because its baseplate is a frame rather than a solid piece of plastic. As a result, the scan displays a blurry texture layer inside the mouse. That said, the scale and dimensions of this scan are still accurate and aren't affected by this minor visual error.

Build Quality

The LAMZU Atlantis Mini 4K has great build quality overall. It has a smooth plastic outer shell with a matte coating that feels good in your hand and is high quality. There's some very minor flexing when you apply pressure in some areas, and you can activate one of the side buttons by applying pressure underneath it, but this isn't noticeable during normal use. There's some minor side-to-side play in the left- and right-click buttons, and you can activate the scroll wheel click by applying pressure to the right.

The LAMZU Atlantis Mini 4K provides remarkable sensor latency performance. It reacts very quickly when you move your mouse and is suitable for casual and competitive play.

We tested this mouse at 4000Hz with Motion Sync turned on. Normally, we would perform our sensor latency test with Motion Sync turned off, as it can add up to 1 ms of latency. However, this mouse has significantly increased latency at 4000Hz with Motion Sync turned off, with the delay to start of movement being 22.6ms, the delay at half movement being 11.8ms, and the delay to end of movement being 12.9ms.

For reference, we conducted supplementary testing with this mouse's polling rate set to 1000Hz and with Motion Sync off. With these settings, the delay to start of movement result is 13.1 ms, the delay to half movement is 3.1 ms, and the delay to end of movement is 3.8 ms.

The polling rate options are 125Hz, 250Hz, 500Hz, 1000Hz, and 4000Hz. This mouse features a High Power mode, a Low Power mode, and a Peak Performance mode. LAMZU doesn't specify what these settings do. However, we expect that High Performance and Peak Performance settings prioritize performance, while they likely intend Low Power mode to extend battery life at the expense of gaming performance.
