Logitech Launches First-of-Its-Kind Logitech G Tunable Gaming Mouse

Logitech, a leading innovator of gaming peripherals, today introduced its newest Logitech G mouse, the Logitech G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse. This extremely customizable mouse combines the world's first 12,000 DPI sensor with advanced surface and weight tuning to help you maximize your victory potential. "I've been super excited to use this mouse in public, I got to test it and it felt great! Was super comfortable and just fit perfectly to my hand," said Hai Lam, team captain for Cloud 9. "Adjusting the DPI is super easy and very flexible. This is probably my favorite mouse to date!" As with every product in the Logitech G lineup, Proteus Core reflects Logitech's commitment to putting science to work to help you win.
"With the world's best sensor technology, complete surface, weight and balance tuning and mechanical switches, we have made a mouse that dominates," said Ehtisham Rabbani, general manager of the Logitech gaming business. "The Logitech G team believes that when hype fades, Science Wins!"

Superior Tracking
Proteus Core features the Logitech G exclusive Delta Zero technology in the world's most powerful and accurate sensor. Combining a huge DPI range of 200 all the way up to 12,000 with zero sensor acceleration, zero smoothing or filtering, and zero pixel rounding, the mouse is designed to deliver unparalleled tracking performance and responsiveness, and can track movement at 300 inches per second.

Superior Tuning
Proteus Core allows you to calibrate the sensor against a gaming surface's unique physical and reflective characteristics, reconfiguring itself for optimal performance. This means you can achieve peak tracking speed and minimal lift-off distance on whatever gaming surface you use. So whether you prefer your mouse pads hard or soft, light or dark, you can get the best-possible tracking response.

To maximize physical feel and performance, Proteus Core lets you adjust its weight and center of balance through the placement of up to five 3.6g weights in the mouse. For complete control over your game you can use Logitech Gaming Software to reassign any command or macro to one of the 11 programmable buttons thanks to the 32-bit ARM processor controlling Proteus Core's onboard memory.

Superior Controls
While most gaming mice feature a monolithic key-plate that can flex and warp, Proteus Core has individual left and right keys that provide a rigid and stable platform, resulting in more precise, durable, and satisfying clicks. To further enhance feel, speed, and accuracy, we use mechanical micro-switches under every key. And our exclusive dual-mode hyper-fast scroll wheel has been improved to offer enhanced click-to-click precision and lightning-fast scrolling for the Web.

Pricing and Availability
The Logitech G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse is expected to be available in the U.S. and Europe beginning in April 2014, for a suggested retail price of $79.99

Holy hell that's ugly. 12k DPI is ridiculous too, but I'm interested to see if it's truly a "flawless" sensor.

Let hope Logitech has improved quality of the switches, my G500 had double click issue within 15 days of buying and using. And I dont even use if for gaming.

The double click problem is typically a capacitor having an issue However, there is one fix to discharge that capacitor and resolve the issue Here's how to do this: Unplug the mouse and/or remove batteries Let it sit for a minute without a power source Click the button rapidly and for about 30 secs. Wait another 30 secs. then insert batteries or plug mouse back into USB Now please verify the problem is resolved.

too bad this thing looks like a G602, what a shame, the MX510,518,400s all are the ideal shape for the mouse.

well for those who like the G602 shape (and i only know, one of my friend who hate that shape ... but he is also the only one who didn't tried it :D ), with the click/tilt wheel mode, it could be really tempting, tho i wouldn't even need dpi above 2500 or want my mouse to be wired or less than 6 buttons under my thumb (unless the "slowdown aim" button can be freely configured but that still would make 2 time less button)... well in the end no need :laugh:

(and i do find the G602 shape more comfortable than a MX510,518,500,500s,400 )

I thought it's because G500 using Omron D2FC-F-7N as microswitches? I love the feel of it but they don't last long.

isn't Omron d2fc-f7n one of the best and last for 5million clicks at least? There is also 10million ones too... Its way better than any huano or ttc switches....

as far as I know, no. D2FC-F7N is chinese made and not very durable (all of my mouse have them and always have double click problem under one year). The D2F-T is japan made and more durable, but I don't like the clicking feel.
I think most of gaming mouse of decent brand are using Omron for their left/right click anyway. Deathadder is using TTC for its sidebuttons, but I love those sidebutton and they never fail on me.

oh wow, after almost 3 years my long serving mice G9x is starting to go into the grave, (right click is starting being non responsive or/and breaking the click signal) personally it is the best low profile claw like (by that I mean it hasn't got round shape it is almost flat) mouse I've ever had for hardcore FPS gaming, great product and awesome experience, unfortunately I can't see that G9x has been discontinued and I can't get a new one in any online shop, which would be my first unquestionable choice. But this is looking very good.
