Logitech's G502 Proteus Core tunable gaming mouse with 12,000 DPI sensor hits in April

Logitech unveiled the G502 Proteus Core today, a customizable gaming mouse with a 12,000 DPI sensor set for release this month in Europe and North America for $79.99.

The mouse sports a 32-bit ARM processor and includes Logitech's Delta Zero sensor technology, which allows users to adjust DPI settings from 200 to 12,000. According to its creator, the G502 is capable of tracking movement up to 300 inches per second.

It also ships with five 3.6g weights, which you can insert and remove to adjust the mouse's weight and center of gravity. Logitech software allows users to customize the mouse's 11 buttons with commands or macros. Each of the G502 Proteus Core's buttons sit atop "mechanical micro-switches," which Logitech says grants users better accuracy, feel and speed.

"With the world's best sensor technology, complete surface, weight and balance tuning and mechanical switches, we have made a mouse that dominates," said Ehtisham Rabbani, general manager of the Logitech gaming business. "The Logitech G team believes that when hype fades, science wins!"

Polygon will meet with Logitech to see the mouse at PAX East 2014, which runs from April 11-13.
