Logitech Reveals "World's Fastest Gaming Mouse"

The Logitech "G402 Hyperion Fury Ultra-Fast FPS Gaming Mouse" will be available in August for $60.

PC peripheral maker Logitech has announced what it calls the "world's fastest gaming mouse," the G402 Hyperion Fury Ultra-Fast FPS Gaming Mouse. The mouse, which will be available in August for $60, can track over 500 inches per second, and also features Logitech's own Delta Zero sensor technology to allow the mouse to have "unrivaled accuracy."

According to Logitech gaming general manager Ehtisham Rabbani, the G402 is the product of more than three years of research and development. "The Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury is the fastest gaming mouse, bar none, and the best mouse for high-speed FPS gameplay," he said in a statement.

Logitech says the G402 solves a common problem for advanced FPS players: their mouse can't accurately track as fast as they can move. The G402 can do this, Logitech says, thanks to its optical sensor technology, which features an accelerometer and a gyroscope.

In terms of DPI, the G402 can go from 4000 DPI to 240 DPI "in the blink of an eye," Logitech says.

The mouse is also customizable, featuring eight programmable buttons that you can use for macros and keystrokes. In addition, the mouse features a "consistent" one millisecond report rate, which means your commands will be realized "as quickly as possible," Logitech says.

Logitech's G402 mouse:

  • Price: $60
  • Release date: August in North American and Europe
  • Features:
    • Can track 500 inches per second
    • Can go from 4000 DPI to 240 DPI "in the blink of an eye"
    • Has eight programmable buttons
    • Has an 32-bit on-board ARM processor

In other Logitech news, the company today announced plans to create its own video game with the help of gamers everywhere. You can read more about Logitech's plans in this post from earlier today.

Well they did tell the truth about the G602 wireless gaming mouse. In fact the batteries have lasted longer than the 250 hours they say it should. Haven't noticed any lag no matter what I'm playing or doing and it seems to be very accurate even for CAD work and in Photoshop.

My G502 is better. I just wish they weren't made for children's hands though. They need to be wider.

Aww, it's like my g502's brother. How cute.

Not doubting it or anything, but I'll wait for the review.  I can't imagine any reason for wanting a new one besides having my Sensei break, and then having my unopened Sensei break, and that could take some time.

I wonder who gets paid to design these products though.  They really are tragically ugly.  Unless all the photos they provided were of a G402 that was in a terrible, terrible accident.

Razer Deathadder for the win.

Can we get some more words in that product name?...

"Damn, my mouse is too slow for me! Whenever I move my hand at the speed of a car my mouse lags behind by 0.001 seconds and that is SUCH a pain in the ass."  -Every gamer ever

I'm more than satisfied with my G700s, covers my every need and then some.

    No PC gamer has ever thought they needed this.... so pointless.

I don't understand why Logitech purposefully makes their mice look so terrible.

I would have picked this if it had a micro gear wheel like the g500.

No need for accelerometer and gyroscope. Optical mouse is still the way to go.

My Ouroboros still takes the cake. 8200 dpi and can switch with the click of a button.

No thanks ill stick to a thumb trackerball mouse far more accurate and comfortable than a normal mouse.

I think I will stick with my DeathAdder for now.

Design is nice, decently priced, it's Logitech and to top it off it's ultra precise. What's there to hate?

Logitech please returns to your root, don't try to follow those cliche markets for teenagers who think it's cool to own an overprice flimsy Razer mouse that has problem a few months in (old Razer used to be okay to own). Bring us something worthy of your MX518 or G400, mice that last for eternity and continue to server us well until this day. Just compare the side button from the G400 and G500, you can tell the difference in build quality.

Wait, why do we want it to change DPI quickly? If they're implying acceleration, that's the opposite of what I want.

they do realize majority of gamers and pro gamers do not use really high speeds right? >.>

Not a fan of cables in the way. Let know, when the wireless version of this mouse comes out.

Unless something has changed they are mouses not mice.  They aren't alive.  I'm a dork I know.  I am so used the Razer Naga at this point.  I don't think I would notice the difference because I am not the man at FPS's.  I might get it though just because it's the fastest.

looks nice 

maybe it's time to replace my aging G300

@LesserAngel Well actually it's just called the G402, aka Hyperion Fury.

None of the other stuff was the product name, even though it was what the guy said in the video.  Logitech often give their product a name to go along with their actual designation which is almost always a number with a letter or two.  "M" for mice, "K" for keyboards, "MK" for both sold as a combo, and "G" for gaming products.

@unikunjerry  They dont really mean speed, so much as they mean accuracy.  A shitty low DPI mouse that doesn't mirror your movements or track properly gets really annoying.

@yngsten G700s has definitely been the best mouse purchase I have made in a long time.

@sirchick Its just marketting now , latest gaming mouses were already more than what players needed.

@vv3rma I seriously doubt it.  I use to use one, I went back to the 360 controller though.  My cousin uses a DS4.

@duylinhs I've had all three of my Razer products for over 2 years, as well as many of my friends and we have never had a single problem with them. Get off the hive-mind hipster bs. Razer and Logitech both make quality peripherals. Enjoy your preference. Unwarranted and ignorant criticism isn't necessary.

@uchihasilver I thought the same but I've come to realize that its easier to set your DPI up then turn the sensitivity in-game down so you still have control but better tracking.

@frozenuxx Love my RAT7, it's actually a lot more comfy than it looks (the pinky rest is oddly nice to have), though the soft rubber finish is starting to wear off...

@frozenuxx lmao, i got that one, but i must say it's really confortable since you can adjust it to your hand :) ,

@JRD1912 @unikunjerry Im not talking about DPI. A lot of gaming mice have higher dpi than this one (G700s has 8200) I am just saying that it's kind ridiculous that they spent that much effort to make the mouse track 500 inches a second.

@tr4newreck @stev69 Not really long at all, and now i wouldn't be without it. A conventional mouse in comparison feels cumbersome. They aren't flash and they don't get the love they deserve in terms of variety and features but I highly recommend it. 

vegard1985

@Dragerdeifrit Yeah I have one too, but it's more of a showpiece. Whenever I try using it, I always go back to my Logitech G9x within a few days. The R.A.T. looks cool though.
