Logitech’s G402 Hyperion Fury – “The World’s Fastest Gaming Mouse”

In Greek mythology, Hyperion is one of the twelve Titans. His name translates to “the High One,” not to denote his predilection for enjoying whacko tobacco, but as a designation of his status. After all, Hyperion is the father of Helios (the Sun).
Anyway, Logitech has just announced its latest gaming mouse, the G402 Hyperion Fury. The company touts it as “the world’s fastest gaming mouse.”
Lending credence to Logitech’s claims that the G402 Hyperion Fury is indeed the world’s fastest gaming mouse is the company’s exclusive Fusion Engine sensor technology. The Fusion Engine (“you mean to tell me this sucker is nuclear?”) can track over 500 inches per second (IPS). But speed by itself is just as useful as an ashtray on a motorcycle; harnessing all that speed and giving it an element of precision and control is another Logitech exclusive, the Delta Zero sensor technology, a feature we’ve already seen in other Logitech mice such as the G602 Wireless Gaming Mouse.
The G402 Hyperion Fury also boasts eight programmable buttons, endowing it with the capability for customization of functions as well as macro command programming. There are also four DPI settings available. Clearly, Logitech, while having designed this mouse for FPS games, has gone to some lengths making this a very versatile gaming tool.
At the heart of the G402 Hyperion Fury is a 32-bit on-board ARM processor. The ARM chip is the brain of the Fusion engine, the secret weapon in the G402 Hyperion Fury’s armory.
Logitech says its G402 Hyperion Fury Gaming Mouse should be available in the US and in Europe starting August 2014. MSRP is $59.99.
