Logitech has launched a new weapon to help gamers scroll and click their way to victory. Its G502 Proteus Core gaming mouse boasts advanced surface, weight and balance tuning and the world’s first 12,000 DPI sensor.

The Proteus Core's new Delta Zero IR sensor is claimed to be the world's most powerful and accurate sensor. Gamers are offered in-game shifting between five DPI settings ranging from 200 to 12,000 resolution, with LED indicators. The sensor can be calibrated to the physical and reflective properties of the surface on which the mouse rests, then reconfigures itself as necessary for the best performance.

Logitech reports no sensor acceleration, a complete lack of smoothing or filtering, and no pixel rounding. The cabled Windows gaming mouse features a 32-bit ARM processor that helps it manage a USB report rate of 1 ms for unrivalled responsiveness, and an unmatched speed of 300 inches per second and acceleration up to 40 G.

Gamers can also alter the feel of the G502 by tinkering with the weight and center of balance using up to five 3.6 g (0.13 oz) weights inside the housing.

Durable individual left and right keys rated for 20 million precision clicks, each with mechanical micro-switches, are said to deliver a satisfying click when pressed, and each of the peripheral's 11 buttons can be assigned a custom command or macro using the company's proprietary Gaming Software and saved the its onboard memory. Up to three profiles can be stored on the mouse itself. Rounding off the specs is a dual-mode scroll wheel for "enhanced click-to-click precision and lightning-fast scrolling for the Web."

The Logitech G502 Proteus Core tunable gaming mouse is expected to be available from this month for a suggested retail price of US$79.99.

$80 is up there a bit for a wired mouse but it seems like most wired gaming mice are "claw" or "fingertip" style mice instead of palm.

I think claw is a less natural grip and a lot more likely to give you carpal tunnel. I use a G700s and Performance MX and my hand is in a way more rested position although they are both wireless. Of those 2 the MX is the most comfortable.

When I tried to use claw gamer mice like the Corsair M95 now they just feel like they were meant for little hands.

The only large hand intended corded mouse I was able to find was the SteelSeries wow one but I've never seen one up close: http://i.imgur.com/PwDvfXV.jpg
