Logitech has announced what it claims to be its best wireless gaming mouse ever, the G900 Chaos Spectrum, with improved report rate that is said to outperform even hard-wired devices.
The Logitech G900 Chaos Spectrum, like many wireless mice, uses the same 2.4GHz spectrum as many Wi-Fi devices. Unlike its rivals, though, Logitech claims the new mouse has a reporting rate of just one millisecond - beating even some wired devices - and an exclusive clock-tuning technology which boosts battery life to 32 hours of continuous use per two-hour charge, dropping to 24 with lighting enabled.
'We talked with eSports pros and none of them love the cable on a wired mouse,
' claimed Ujesh Desai vice president and general manager of gaming at Logitech, of the device's inspiration. 'They wish they had the freedom of wireless but the performance and reliability of a wired mouse. So that was the design goal we gave our engineers, to build a wireless gaming mouse that was faster than the competition's wired gaming mice. G900 delivers on this promise, and we're confident it's the best gaming mouse we've ever built.
As well as the boosted wireless performance, the G900 Chaos Spectrum includes Logitech's PMW3366 optical sensor with support for 200-12,000 dots per inch (DPI) resolution and zero smoothing or filtering. The design is built to be ambidextrous, and can be switched for left- or right-handed use by removing the magnetic button covers. These two main buttons also include a metal spring tensioning system and mechanical pivoting hinges which the company claims reduces the pre-travel distance and force required to actuate. Despite these features, the mouse weighs just 107g - the result, the company claims, of a specially-designed thin wall moulding and hollow scroll-wheel among other weight-reducing changes.
The G900 Chaos Spectrum is due to launch in Europe some time next month, priced at €179 (around £140 excluding taxes.) A promotional video demonstrating its features is reproduced below.
