Logitech reveals the world's fastest gaming mouse -- G402 Hyperion Fury

PC gaming is a really awesome pastime. While some people prefer console gaming, it is strictly a matter of preference. I like both, but I particularly like the gamification of PC gaming hardware. In other words, the actual building of the gaming PC and buying of cool peripherals can be as fun as the games themselves. Hell, it can sometimes be more fun.

One of the most fun peripherals to buy for a gaming PC is the mouse. Unfortunately, far too much emphasis has been put on appearance lately, instead of performance. Don't get me wrong, a gaming mouse should look cool and sexy, but only as a secondary focus. Today, Logitech announces a mouse that meets the needs of performance and appearance-driven consumers, with the G402 Hyperion Fury. The company claims that it is the world's fastest gaming mouse. Is it faster than Speedy Gonzales?

"Today we’re excited to introduce the fastest gaming mouse ever made, the Logitech G402 Hyperion Fury Ultra-Fast FPS Gaming Mouse. This mouse features Logitech's exclusive Fusion Engine sensor technology that can reliably track over 500 inches per second (IPS) and Logitech's exclusive Delta Zero sensor technology for unrivaled accuracy", says Logitech.

The company touts the following features and specs:

Wow, that is quite impressive. As you can see, the G402 offers on-the-fly DPI changing via up and down buttons -- rather standard nowadays. Also, it features 8 programmable buttons -- perfect for assigning different tasks or weapons to the buttons of your choice. I am happy to see that it is wired, rather than wireless, as gamers will not be interrupted by dead batteries.
