When the press of a button is the only difference between a win and a loss, game with Gambit. The PDP Victrix Gambit Wired Controller was designed by esports athletes to eliminate lag and maximize your speed. Their controller has the fastest thumbsticks, triggers and buttons on Xbox. With Gambit’s Dual Core technology, they dedicate one core to ultra-fast input processing and the other to crystal-clear audio. That means less latency and up to 8 times faster input response than competing controllers. With their patented five trigger stop positions, and hair-trigger mode you can decrease travel distance and react even faster.

The PDP Victrix Gambit Wired Controller paddles are usable but the ergonomics of the paddles are not as good as the elite controller. Sometimes I accidentally click on 2 palettes because the 2 buttons are too close together. Also, the paddles should stand out more from the controller. It’s difficult to press several times in a row without moving the entire controller and therefore the sticks. The sticks are also too stiff for me. It makes small sharp movements difficult, though this may be linked to the dead zone.
The general grip of the controller is quite good although the select and start buttons are difficult to reach with your thumb. I prefer the PS5 controller with its large central pad and the well-placed start and select buttons.
The responsiveness of the controller is crazy for an “Xbox” controller although the ergonomics of the paddles and sticks prevent me from making the most of it.
Overall, the PDP Victrix Gambit Wired Controller offers a complete bundle for less than £100 and it is probably the best controller for this price that has 4 paddles.
