A mouse isn't just a mouse these days. As with running shoes or golf clubs, we now have an abundance of different takes on the humble rodent, each increasingly attuned to the needs of the various stripes of gamers out there. Asus' new ROG Sica mouse looks kind of like a set of forged blades for golfers: everything you need and nothing you don't.

The Sica's minimalist layout, with only left, right, and scroll-wheel buttons, is even more pared-down than the EVGA Torq X5 we recently reviewed. Asus says the ambidextrous shape is designed specifically for fingertip-grippers, and the matte upper finish and rubberized sides look like just the ticket for a sure hold.

Interestingly, the Sica uses socketed Omron switches that can be replaced for a different click feel. The socketed design could also increase the useful life of the mouse. Should the switches fail in the course of normal use, they look easy enough to replace, and a pack of new ones is only a few bucks.

For tracking duties, the Sica taps a Pixart PMW3310 optical sensor with a 5000-DPI max resolution and 50-DPI adjustment increments. According to Asus, the sensor tracks reliably at speeds up to 130 inches per second and accelerations up to 30 Gs.

Pricing hasn't been announced, but Asus' other ROG mouse, the Gladius, is $80 on Newegg right now. It's probably fair to say the Sica won't be cheap when it hits stores.
