EVGA Torq X10 Gaming Mouse Reviewby E. Fylladitakis on August 18, 2014 10:14 AM EST
It is natural for any growing company to look for diversification. For EVGA, a company known for their high quality GPU cards and gaming motherboards, growth has led them to seek further attention from gamers. The company already released several high performance PSUs and a few cases when their first gaming peripheral, the Torq X10 gaming mouse, arrived at our labs. We will be taking a quick look at it and see what it can offer to gamers and advanced users in today's capsule review.

Packaging and bundle
We received the EVGA Torq X10 in a well-designed, wedge-shaped package. The mouse can be clearly seen beneath the clear top of the package, which envelops the mouse and allows for a rough hands-on experience when browsing at a local shop.
Inside the box, we found six cylindrical weights, Teflon feet, an adjustment tool, and a very basic quick-start guide. There is no media with the drivers/software of the mouse; the user will have to download it from EVGA's website. Furthermore, do not fear if you accidentally lose the tool; it is a simple Torx T10 screwdriver that can be easily found at most tool shops or online. Ostensibly, the Torx T10 screw is what gave this mouse its name.
