Logitech has innovated gaming mice. He replaced mechanical switches with optical ones – Image and sound – Science and technology

The new gaming mice use special Lightforce hybrid switches that have replaced mechanical elements with optical ones for increased speed and accuracy. However, mice still provide tactile feedback when pressing buttons.


Logitech introduced a trio of gaming mice with a hybrid switch.

The originally Swiss company Logitech recently introduced a trio of new gaming mice from the G series that feature Lightforce hybrid switches. This type of switch replaces classic mechanical elements with completely new hybrid optical-mechanical switches, which according to the manufacturer are faster, more reliable and more accurate. They are hybrid because they combine the properties of optical sensors with mechanical ones – they provide players with a haptic response when pressing a button. Tactile feedback is an element that most gamers cannot do without.

The G502 X mouse is equipped with a Hero 25K gaming sensor, “which offers 1:1 positioning accuracy at the submicron level without smoothing, filtering or acceleration.” At the same time, it also boasts an unconventional reversible and removable button for changing the resolution. The mouse is adjustable for different sizes of hands and grips. It also has an improved scroll wheel with more stability and less weight. Its Lightspeed sibling offers a wireless connection that, combined with Lightforce technology, offers a claimed up to 68 percent faster response compared to previous generations of mice. The top model is the G502 X Plus, which uses Lightsync RGB technology with an adjustable 8-zone LED backlight.

All three mice will be available for sale in black and white from September 20. The price for the G502 X model was set by the manufacturer at almost 80 euros. The G502 X Lightspeed model costs 149 and the G502 X Plus 169 euros.
