Logitech has unveiled its latest additions to the Pro Series line of esports gear: the Logitech G Pro X TKL Lightspeed Gaming Keyboard, the pink version of the Logitech G Pro X 2 Lightspeed Gaming Headset and the Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 Gaming Mouse.
These new products, developed in collaboration with professional esports athletes, complete the Pro Series lineup, are aimed at delivering top performance across mice, keyboards, and headsets, said Chris Pate, principal product manager at Logitech, in a press briefing.
“It’s designed for pros and is aspirational to everyone. We design by collaboration with work with pros, around the world — hundreds and hundreds of different pro athletes,” Pate said. “We spend a lot of time talking about how they play and what they need to do to win. It’s a constant, iterative process. We create new prototypes. We take their feedback, we do product training with them, and we don’t just go to them with a brand new product and say, ‘What do you think?’ We take feedback based on existing generations and and integrate that into new new development.”
He said it is designed to be invisible to players so you can onboard naturally and don’t have to spend time thinking about your new gear.
“We don’t add a bunch of extra features,” Pate said. “We strip it down just to the essentials. And then we make sure that it’s incredibly precise and accurate. We don’t have any we don’t have any tolerance for a for sloppiness.”
Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2
The Logitech G Pro X Superlight 2 Gaming Mouse is a precision mouse designed for elite-level gaming, he said. It features Lightforce Hybrid Switches, a hybrid optical-mechanical switch technology that combines the speed and reliability of optical sensors with the crisp response and mechanical feel that pros prefer.
The mouse is equipped with the new Hero 2 Sensor, offering tracking at over 500 inches per second and up to 32,000 DPI.
Its dual array design ensures consistent tracking performance, even when the mouse is lifted or tilted. Weighing only 2.11 ounces and retaining the shape of its predecessor, the Pro X Superlight, this mouse provides a lightweight advantage for gamers, Pate said. It also boasts Pro-grade technology, USB-C connectivity, a 95-hour battery life (up 25 hours from the prior version), and compatibility with Powerplay for wireless charging.
