Logitech company likes to amaze gamers. But the last time this happened was back in 2016, when Logitech introduced a HERO (High Efficiency Rated Optical) sensor designed from the ground up for gaming mouse. According to the manufacturer, it set a “new standard” for optical sensors for gaming mouse, providing accurate tracking of movements. Until recently, the sensor’s maximum resolution was 16,000 dots per inch.
This week, the manufacturer announced the release of a software update for the sensor, which raises the upper limit to 25600 dpi! This makes the HERO sensor with the highest resolution in the gaming industry!
According to Logitech G, it’s the world’s first “sub-micron level” sensor for mouse, which allows tracking movements of less than 10-6 meters. Recognizing that sub-micron resolution is “in most cases impractical” for players, the company notes that the upgrade “reflects the potential of the HERO architecture and sensor performance.
The HERO 25K features an intelligent power management system that continuously adjusts the frequency of reports based on mouse movement to reduce power consumption. Even at high resolution, HERO is an order of magnitude superior to previous Logitech G sensors in energy efficiency.
An update available free of charge in G HUB improves the performance of the G903 HERO, G502 LIGHTSPEED, PRO Wireless, G703 HERO, G604, G502 HERO, G403 HERO, and PRO mouses.
