Logitech releases the Lightspeed G603 wireless mouse with 1 ms input lag
A few days ago Logitech was announcing the first wireless keyboard to use the improved Lightspeed connection that delivers 1 ms input lag. The Swiss company already released two mice with the Lightspeed technology – the G703 and the G903, but these are dedicated to professional gamers, with prices over US$100. Logitech is now expanding the Lightspeed family with the more affordable G603 wireless mouse.
While the Lightspeed connection provides 1 ms polling rates in demanding games, Logitech’s software allows users to reduce the polling rate to 8 ms for non-gaming activities, in order to preserve energy. The G603 mouse also integrates Logitech’s HERO (high efficiency rated optical) sensor with a sensibility of 12,000 DPI that allows speeds of 400 inches per second at up to 40 G acceleration. The HERO sensor consumes very little energy, enabling the mouse to operate for 500 hours at maximum performance with two AA batteries.
Gamers will appreciate the possibility to program each of the 6 buttons via the LGS software. The mouse can also work on two separate host systems, one connecting through Bluetooth and the other one through Lightspeed.
Logitech says it will begin shipping for the G603 later this month, but the mouse can already be pre-ordered for US$69.99 from their official site.
