Wireless mice aren't typically known for their high performance with games. They travel in laptop bags or occupy the desks of people who can't abide seeing cords. Gamers have traditionally stuck with wired mice to limit latency. With its G900 Chaos Spectrum, Logitech is trying to change the narrative about wireless gaming mice.
Whether it's used in wired or wireless mode, the G900 Chaos Spectrum has a 1000Hz polling rate. The fast wireless rate comes courtesy of a 2.4GHz wireless connection. For accurate tracking at any speed, Logitech uses a 12,000-DPI PMW3366 optical sensor. In wireless mode, battery life sounds pretty good for a gaming mouse. Logitech claims that its clock-tuning technology enables the mouse to run for 24 hours on a single charge, or 32 hours if the programmable RGB lighting effects are turned off.
Logitech also wants to accommodate left-handed users with this mouse. The ambidextrous basic shape can be adjusted to taste with custom button caps and covers. In total, the mouse has eleven programmable buttons. These can be configured to run macros or adjust DPI on the fly. The company claims the primary buttons employ a spring tensioning system and metal pivot hinges in order to increase the responsiveness of each click.
The G900 Chaos Spectrum is designed to be a lightweight mouse. It weighs in at only 107g. For comparison, Logitech's recent G502 starts at 121g before you start adding in that model's five 3.6g weights. To slim down the G900, Logitech uses "thin-wall molding" and a hollow scroll wheel design. The mouse is available for pre-order now with a $150 price tag.
