Logitech has released it's a next-generation wireless gaming mouse which it says offers faster performance than most wired mice.

The Logitech G305, launched under the Logitech G brand, includes Lightspeed wireless technology and HERO (High Efficiency Rated Optical) sensors for high-end performance.

The Lightspeed technology has a 1ms report rate, end-to-end optimized wireless connection, and high levels of responsiveness and reliability for competition-level performance. The HERO sensor provides exceptional responsiveness and accuracy, 400 IPS precision and sensitivity up to 12,000 DPI, with no acceleration or smoothing.

The mouse also has ten times the power efficiency of the previous generation of mice, Logitech says, with up to 250 hours of continuous gameplay at a 1ms report rate in from one AA battery. (Or just use rechargeable batteries so you don't throw so many away...)

The mouse is available at global retailers from this month for a suggested retail price of AED 220 ($60).

"For years, we have been committed to delivering wireless performance that was faster than our competitor's wired offerings," said Ujesh Desai, vice president and general manager of Logitech Gaming. "Through our work Wireless has advanced to the point where esports pros are trusting our innovative technology and winning with our wireless mice. With the G305 we wanted to bring the same top-of-the-line technology to everyone. G305 features our HERO sensor and LIGHTSPEED wireless -- all for AED 220. There's never been a better time to go wireless."
