    ASUS rolled out its first Republic of Gamers (ROG) branded input device, the ROG Eagle Eye GX1000 gaming mouse. Clad in brushed aluminum and ABS plastic, with a braided weave cable, the Eagle Eye GX1000 features a pseudo-ambidextrous design (side buttons only on its left side), with a total of six action buttons, a scroll wheel, and on-the-fly sensitivity control buttons.

    The ROG Eagle Eye GX1000 features a weight compartment, with adjustable weighs in units of 5 g. Its dry weight (without any weights) is 150 g. Under its hood is an 8,200 DPI laser sensor, which can be lowered all the way down to 50 DPI. Overall, the mouse measures 128.5 x 65.5 x 43.5 mm. ASUS dropped in some groovy LED lighting for the scroll wheel, the sensitivity adjustment felt-touch surface (can coarsely display DPI setting), and its rear side. An ROG-branded mousepad is part of the package. Expect this one to be priced upwards of $100.

    8200 dpi?
    It's getting ridiculous. It's like people buying point and shoot cameras at 20 megapixels and doesn't realize that it actually hurts picture quality.

    A G400 at 4000 dpi will probably do just as good.
    The real factor they should really be concentrating on is grip, comfort, texture and button locations. If you need to improve accuracy of the mouse then improve its consistency on different surfaces.

    Price seems kind of high, IMO it looks a lot like one of the mice Genius makes, and the software looks reskinned as well.

    I think 8000dpi is the new 4000 in the advent of 4K display.
