Logitech today revamped the iconic G502 gaming mouse in three new variants – announced the G502 X, G502 X LightSpeed, and G502 X Plus with an array of breakthrough innovations aiming to provide the best gaming experience possible.
The G502 X continues the legacy of the G502 form and introduces the LightForce hybrid optical-mechanical switches.
Roopak Krishnan, Head of Marketing and Category, Logitech India, at the launch event, said:
“The G502 is an icon in the gaming industry and we know that the community has been looking for the next-generation offering. We reimagined the iconic G502 with design and engineering updates that elevate the legendary gaming mouse into a new era of play. With lighter materials and cutting-edge technology, the new G502 X promises to continue the G502 tradition of ultimate performance and total control.”
Exclusive to Logitech G, all G502 X models come with the all-new LightForce hybrid optical-mechanical switches for incredible speed, reliability, and precise actuation with a crisp response.
LightForce is a revolutionary microswitch technology that combines the benefits of optical switches with the substantial actuation feel of mechanical switches that gamers love. Optical switches offer fast speed, performance, and reliability over the mouse’s life.
LightForce uses galvanic contact parts within the switch that operate just like mechanical switches to maintain that crisp feeling. Optical and mechanical triggers are engineered in unison, delivering the ultimate gaming performance. LightForce hybrid switches provide reliable, ultra-low latency optical actuation combined with the best attributes of crisp, tactile mechanical clicks.
The G502 X touts a redesigned, reversible and removable DPI-shift button to accommodate a wide variety of hand sizes and grip styles, a redesigned scroll wheel with higher stability and reduced weight while retaining the G502’s iconic dual hyper-fast infinite scroll and distinct ratchet modes, USB-C charging for wireless versions, as well as a thin-wall exoskeleton for weight reduction and maximum rigidity.
The G502 X also comes equipped with the HERO 25K high-precision gaming sensor, offering a 1-1 ratio accuracy at sub-micron levels and zero smoothing, filtering, or acceleration.
Along with activity and performance without the wire and, when combined with LightForce, features response times 68 percent faster than the previous generation. The LightSpeed wireless protocol also allows gamers to connect two LightSpeed devices to one receiver using the Device Pairing Tool in G HUB. Players can choose to operate the G502 X with the same receiver Logitech G915, G915 TKL, or G715 gaming keyboards.
Furthermore, the G502 X line is compatible with Logitech G Powerplay wireless charging mats for practically unlimited battery life.
The G502 X Plus model comes with LightSync RGB with flowing 8-LED lighting that is customizable and adapts as the user plays, startup and power-down effects, and battery optimization through active play detection.
