This week during the Gamescom gaming trade show in Germany, Logitech introduced a new gaming mouse designed for eSports "athletes" called the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse.
Competing at the top of their game, eSports players require the absolute best when it comes to a pointing input device. The mouse combines features from a pair of popular Logitech mice, utilizing the shape from the G100s and "incredible speed, accuracy and responsiveness of the G303".
This mouse uses the 12,000-DPI PixArt PMW3366 sensor, beloved among hardcore mousing enthusiasts for its complete lack of prediction, acceleration, and smoothing.
Billed as a successor to the Logitech G100 series, the G Pro Gaming Mouse boasts a feature set strikes a balance between functionality and comfort. Not only is this good news for people with small hands, but those who prefer a speedy, potentially lower-DPI (dots per inch sensitivity) mouse to a heftier one that gives more control. The metal spring tensioning system is supposed to enhance the consistency of the left and right mouse buttons and reduce the force needed to click. The left and right buttons are rated for 20 million clicks, said to be equivalent to pro gamers training for 10 hours every day for two full years.
At $69.99, this ought to be the mouse that dictates the direction of gaming mice going forward.
The Logitech G Pro Gaming mouse is the culmination of more than 30 years of engineering and manufacturing experience.
With a lithe, low body and a slim, lightweight profile, the G Pro is extremely reminiscent of the beloved Logitech G100s mouse. It also has configurable RGB lighting for the logo on the back, in case you thought it wasn't really a gaming peripheral.
As for the buttons, there are six that can be programmed through the company's free Logitech Gaming software. Logitech is asking $69.99 for the new mouse, another thing it shares with the G303.
