Logitech just expanded its popular G line of gaming mice with the G502 Proteus Core , a tunable mouse for gamers that brings a 12,000 DPI sensor to the fire fight. What's unique about the G502 Proteus Core is that it allows you to calibrate the sensor against a gaming surface's unique physical and reflective characteristics, after which it will reconfigure itself for optimal performance.

Customization is the name of the game here. You can adjust the DPI sensor all the way down to 200, and of course Logitech lets you reassign any command or macro to any of the 11 programmable buttons courtesy of the onboard 32-bit ARM processor and built in memory. However, you can also adjust the mouse's weight and center of balance by placing up to five 3.5g weights in the G502.

"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!"

Logitech also said it improved its exclusive dual-mode hyper-fast scroll wheel to offer enhanced click-to-click precision and lightning fast scrolling on the web.

The Logitech G502 Proteus Core Tunable Gaming Mouse will be available in the U.S. and Europe this month for $80 MSRP.
