The recent 2023 Asian Games held in Hangzhou, China featured esports as an official category for the first time in history. Esports turned out to be one of the most popular Asian Games events and was the only competition in Hangzhou to use a lottery system for tickets due to the high demand for seats at the esports venues.
China won four of the seven gold medals at stake. The Philippines did not place higher than ninth in any of the esports events which are League of Legends, Dota 2, Arena of Valor (aka Honor of Kings), PUBG Mobile, EA FC 24, Street Fighter V, and Dream Three Kingdoms 2.
While not wanting in heart and fighting spirit, current and aspiring Pinoy esport athletes could use better equipment. And Logitech can help address that with the release of the Logitech G PRO X TKL LIGHTSPEED Gaming Keyboard and the Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT 2 Gaming Mouse.
The mouse and keyboard complete the pro gamers trifecta with the Logitech G PRO X 2 LIGHTSPEED Gaming Headset, which was rolled out earlier this year. These new products, when combined, complete the PRO Series line which offers the highest level of PC performance across mice, keyboards, and headsets.
Logitech G, a brand of Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) and leading innovator of gaming technologies and gear, has been working with hundreds of the world’s most- skilled professional esports athletes to create the next generation of PRO Series gear.
“The exciting new PRO Series portfolio represents a pure and uncompromised product collection, designed for maximum performance of elite esports professionals and the most competitive gamers playing at the peak of potential” stated Brent Barry, Head of Esports and PRO Series at Logitech G.
“These products exemplify our commitment to pushing the limits of performance, speed, and reliability, which is only made possible through our multi-year, collaborative design process with professional esports athletes. Our elite athlete partners help design, develop, and test our products, ensuring they deliver the highest level of performance, quality, and cutting-edge innovation,” he added.
For his part, Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev, a Counter-Strike player for NAVI, said, “The mouse and keyboard are the most important part of PC Gaming. If my mouse doesn’t feel like an extension of my hand, I won’t be able to play well. The Superlight 2 feels weightless and I don’t have to think about it. The Superlight 2 is like the first Superlight but better. And with its compact design and its trusted lightspeed wireless technologies, the Pro X TKL is perfect if you want a clean setup. They are both must-haves if your goal is to win!”
The Logitech G PRO X SUPERLIGHT 2 Gaming Mouse combines precision, performance, and reliability, making it an indispensable advantage for elite-level gaming.
State-of-the-art technologies and features include its LIGHTFORCE Hybrid Switches, a new hybrid optical-mechanical switch technology that combines the revolutionary performance of optical sensors in speed and reliability while providing the crisp response and mechanical feel that Pros love.
The new mouse also includes the brand new HERO 2 Sensor, with tracking at over 500 inches per second and up to 32,000 DPI. Its unique dual array design increases working range and maintains tracking performance, even when lifting or tilting the mouse.
Based on feedback from pro gamers, the new PRO X Superlight retains its award-winning shape and geometry of the original PRO Superlight and also a weight of only 60 grams.
Additional features include PRO-grade technology, USB-C, 95-hour battery life, POWERPLAY compatibility, larger array size, and a best-in-class 25-kilohertz maximum frame rate. Its zero-additive PTFE mouse feet deliver a smooth glide for seamless reactivity to any game.
Like the PRO X Superlight 2 Gaming Mouse, the new Logitech G PRO X TKL Wireless Gaming Keyboard was also designed with, and for pros, to deliver the highest level of competitive play.
Its tenkeyless form factor features programmable keys, RGB lighting with LIGHTSYNC, dedicated media controls and volume roller, and the trusted performance and reliability of Logitech G’s LIGHTSPEED wireless technology. In addition to the LIGHTSPEED dongle, players can connect via Bluetooth® or via the included USB-C to USB-A cable.
The PRO X TKL features dual-shot PBT keycaps that let LIGHTSYNC RGB shine through. The standard layout allows for third-party keycap compatibility, and additional media keys create quick access while grinding, a detail many pro players requested. Plus, being “tenkeyless” means more room for mouse movement, an important advantage for competitive players.
Players can take their game on the go with the keyboard’s included carry case and choose between Tactile Switches (GX Brown), Linear Switches (GX Red), or Clicky Switches (GX Blue).
For pros, the smallest setting change can make the difference between victory and second place. In the new PRO Series products, DPI, sensitivity, report rate, surface, game settings, and more are all interconnected.
With G HUB updates and Onboard Memory Management software (OMM), players now have even more control and configuration capabilities:
- New sensitivity UI in G HUB and OMM for configuring DPI with full presets, separate X/Y axis controls, and more.
- HERO 2 sensor that can copy settings from one mouse to the other to make sure you get the exact DPI from your old mouse.
- Programmable F keys as G keys on the PRO X 2 Keyboard to enable control of your whole desktop. Change mouse DPI preset, execute multibuy macros, combine spells and abilities, and even control your stream through powerful plugins, including those from Streamlabs.
