XIM MATRIX is the next-generation product from XIM. It is the successor to the XIM NEXUS Gyro Controller and XIM APEX Mouse and Keyboard Adapter. XIM MATRIX utilizes the Smart Translator precision input technology, which has been refined by XIM for the past decade. XIM believe gamers should be able to use the input devices that they feel most comfortable with, mouse, keyboard or controller.

XIM MATRIX features a new Smart Actions Macro Engine, which allows gamers to create and use Smart Action sequences easily with minimal action and timing primitives. The Smart Actions system is deeply integrated with Smart Translators, providing gamers with complete control over the reticle in any way they desire. XIM MATRIX is the first-ever input device to enable natural anti-recoil without compromising aim quality. XIM MATRIX is compatible with any combination of input devices, including mouse, keyboard, and controller.

XIM MATRIX Release Date?

XIM MATRIX is scheduled to be released Q1 2023.

There have been rumors that the release could be slightly delayed due to the Chinese New Year shutdown and the recent surge in COVID-19 cases.


To our knowledge, XIM MATRIX will not be offered for pre-order, as was the case with previous XIM products such as XIM NEXUS, XIM APEX, XIM4, and XIM EDGE. At ADZGAMING.COM, we currently don’t have any pre-order options available until we receive further information on pricing and availability. If you would like to stay updated, feel free to contact us and we can send you an email with any relevant updates in advance.


If you’re able to get hold of one, the XIM APEX remains an excellent choice and is currently the top mouse and keyboard adapter for console. However, it is no longer being produced due to supply chain challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The upcoming XIM MATRIX includes all the features of the XIM APEX, along with even more responsive input processing, compatibility with the PS5, optional Gyro controller input, and a new Smart Actions Macro Engine.


Although there has been no official announcement, the prevailing opinion is that the price will fall within the range of $130 to $150. This equates to approximately £110 to £130 plus VAT and shipping for customers in the UK.
