Logitech Claims G402 "Hyperion Fury" Gaming Mouse Is World's Fastest

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 6 comments

Logitech has a new mouse in its hands, and it's very fast.

Logitech is announcing its latest gaming mouse – the G402 "Hyperion Fury". This mouse is based on the design of the recently-launched G502 "Proteus Core" but brings the design to a slightly cheaper price point. Logitech has already claimed that its G502 is the world's most sensitive mouse, and the G402 is supposed to be the fastest, capable of tracking accurately at over 500 inches per second.

"We took on the challenge of creating the world's fastest mouse in service of FPS gamers, and after three years of intensive R&D we are proud to launch a mouse that only Logitech could develop," said Ehtisham Rabbani, general manager of the Logitech gaming business said in a press release. "The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury is the fastest gaming mouse, bar none, and the best mouse for high-speed FPS gameplay. Its lightweight design, combined with the precision and capability of the Fusion Engine, lets you make fast, furious swipes and dominate the battlefield, proving once again that Science Wins!"

Aside from the high-speed sensor, the mouse also has eight programmable buttons, an onboard ARM processor, DPI settings that range from 240 DPI to 4000 DPI, and a 1 ms response time by using a 1000 Hz polling rate.

Availability is expected in August, with pricing set at $59.99.

    @Toms - why write 2 articles about the same thing?

    Why do all of these "gaming mice" look like they would hurt my hand?

    I'll stick with my M500.

    Apparently this article wasn't as fast to post as the other article.

    My Logitech MX512 is still kicking like a champ and I got it around a decade ago. It's primarily a backup, and rarely used anymore versus my G600, but after having a Razer Naga die in about 2 years and a Black Widow Ultimate doing the same; Logitech gets all the points for me, personally. In my humble opinion, however, that mouse looks far more comfortable than, say, a Cyborg RAT 9, for example. If it's marketed towards gamers, it's gotta be flashy and angular and have LEDs all over the place, right? I mean none of us like minimalism or simplicity or form/function over asthetics, right? :p

    I've had similar bad luck with Razer products... about 6 months has been the usual lifespan. I also have a Logitech MX512 that's still been kicking for about the same amount of time. Currently I'm trying a Perixx mouse (German brand I've been told) that I got for free. 6+ months and no issues so far, so here's crossing fingers.

    With the mouse being shown, it doesn't look that uncomfortable. I will say that the sensitivity is way overkill though.

    I have researched this mouse a little bit and it seems to have a 3310 sensor, which is inferior to the g502.....I don't see the advantage of this mice over the g502, except it may be 10-20 bucks cheaper
