Logitech Gaming has announced the G604 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse, a brand new gaming mouse promising lag-free gaming, all-day battery life and 15 customisable buttons.
Expected to launch in Australia in late September, the Logitech G604 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mouse will be available for the suggested retail price of $169.95, a full $100 more than its predecessor the G603.
However, it is clear Logitech views the new G604 as a complete upgrade rather than a replacement for the smaller mouse.
The G604 comes loaded with Logitech’s High-Efficiency Rated Optical (HERO) 16K Sensor to deliver precise gameplay with zero smoothing, filtering or acceleration in mouse movements.
Lag-free gaming is achieved through Logitech’s ‘end-to-end wireless solution’ called LIGHTSPEED, ‘that delivers low-latency and reliable performance,’ providing wireless freedom for all gamers.
Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech Gaming said the mouse is geared towards those playing Fortnite or the recently released World of Warcraft Classic, where multiple commands are required.
“The G604 LIGHTSPEED was designed to have six thumb buttons, so you can play at your best, and fly through actions and tasks in a heartbeat, giving you complete control. When you combine this with our LIGHTSPEED wireless technology, you get freedom of movement to take your game even farther,” said Mr Desai.
Each of the 15 buttons on the mouse can be programmed through Logitech’s G HUB gaming software, providing further customisation from lighting controls to mouse sensitivity, and even macros controls.
The G604 is powered by a single AA battery, which offers up to 240 hours of wireless gaming using the LIGHTSPEED connection, or five and a half months using Bluetooth.
The mouse can be connected up to two devices via Bluetooth or from the Logitech Lightspeed connector, which can be easily swapped with the push of a button.
Logitech’s 16,000DPI Hero sensor provides extra range of freedom for gamers of all sensitivities, plus the popular dual-mode hyper scroll wheel makes scrolling through webpages and forums a breeze.
