And because it has doubled bandwidth, it natively supports eGFX – so you can game at high settings without any lag or issues.
The ALPS dual 3D joysticks are fantastic – they provide great precision and are very responsive. And when you touch them, they vibrate to give you feedback so you know your inputs are being registered correctly. They’re also backlit so you can game in low-light conditions without any issues.
