NEWARK, Calif. — Aug. 16, 2016 — Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today announced the Logitech® G Pro Gaming Mouse. Designed for eSports athletes, this new gaming mouse features Logitech’s most accurate optical gaming sensor, a metal spring button tensioning system, onboard memory for driver-free operation on tournament systems, and a comfortable, durable yet lightweight design. The Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse builds on the heritage and global popularity of the Logitech G100s shape with top competitive eSports professionals, and combines it with the incredible speed, accuracy and responsiveness of the G303.
“The benefit of working with eSports players is that they tell us what they like, and more importantly, what they don’t like,” said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of gaming at Logitech. “Our new Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse takes what eSports pros loved about the G100s and G303 and combines it into a mouse that we’re confident will meet their standards.”
“Competing at the top level requires a well-built mouse,” said Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham of Cloud 9 CS:GO. “After working closely with Logitech and extensive testing, the new Pro Gaming Mouse is my preferred mouse. With a comfortable shape and top-of-the-line sensor, I never have problems picking off my enemies.”
Advanced Optical Gaming Sensor
Consistent, pixel-precise accuracy makes a critical difference in high-stakes competitive gameplay. The PMW3366 sensor delivers a level of precision widely considered to be the best by enthusiasts and professionals alike. With zero smoothing, filtering or acceleration across the entire DPI range (200-12,000 DPI), it provides exceptional tracking accuracy and consistent responsiveness at any speed.
Metal Spring Button Tensioning System
The metal spring button tensioning system in the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse enhances the consistency of the left and right mouse buttons and reduces the force required to click. This helps deliver crisp, reliable click performance for your highest level of competition.
Comfortable, Durable and Lightweight Design
The Logitech G Pro Gaming mouse is the culmination of more than 30 years of engineering and manufacturing experience. The mouse is optimized to reduce weight to improve comfort, stability and responsiveness. Every aspect of the engineering has been rigorously tested to make sure it can stand up to even the most intense gaming. The top surface of the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse is treated with a special coating to improve durability and grip, and the left and right buttons are tested to exceed 20 million clicks – the equivalent of a pro gamer training 10 hours every day for two years.
Onboard Memory for Driver-free Operation on Tournament Systems
Because you can’t always guarantee the tournament machine will have your configuration software available, or even that it’s allowed to be installed, the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse lets you save your exact DPI settings, button assignments, and lighting configuration to the onboard memory in the mouse, all using the Logitech Gaming Software (LGS), so you’ll never have to worry about whether your setup is right.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning August 2016 for a suggested retail price of $69.99 and €79.95 respectively. For more information please visit gaming.logitech.com and check out our videos of the Pro Gaming Mouse here.
