Oh, is 3,200 or 6,400 DPI not fast enough for you? Logitech has released a new G HUB update (2020.8.5950) that enables 25,600 DPI speeds for select high-performance gaming mice, such as the G502 LIGHTSPEED (a wireless version of the beloved classic). All of these mice utilize the company’s HERO sensor, which were previously limited to 16,000 DPI.

We’re not sure if the increased DPI is overkill or not, but it’s certainly given Logitech’s marketing department a lot to talk about. “At 25,600 DPI, the HERO 25K sensor is the world’s first sub-micron level mouse sensor,” the company wrote in a recent blog post. “While sub-micron is mostly impractical for most players to use, it reflects the performance potential of the HERO architecture and sensor performance.”

“HERO 25K is the first sensor that can accurately track movement at the sub-micron level — 1 micron = 1 millionth of a meter, or 0.000001m,” it added. “Without compromising on accuracy, this new sensor does this without the use of smoothing and without spurious motion, parasitic counts, making this one of the most accurate sensors on the market.”

Logitech G HUB users can download the new update by hitting the gear icon at the upper-right corner of the app. Users can also grab the executable at this link and install it manually.

  1. Too bad the current G-Hub software is crap. I lose most of the functionality of my G933 heatset when using it. I’ll pass.
  2. Who, the F***, games at those DPI levels? Or, really, does anything at those DPI levels?

    At 25,000 DPI you can do a 360 in game by moving the mouse 1/4".

    Its the tracking ability, better with problem surfaces.
    Even when you dont select high DPI, it still tracks better.

  4. Lol big fan of Logitech mice but not sure why this is a benefit. I set my DPI to 400 lol…. Yeah I know it’s not so much something you’re gonna use as it is an indication of the sensor’s ability but I’m not sure it’s proving anything at this point. The Hero sensor is already surgical and nearly perfect.

    I game at 12,000 DPI with low sensitivity. The tracking at that DPI is amazing. Also, remember that at higher resolutions the more DPI you need for the same sensitivity. I game at UHD 4K resolution. The usual 800 DPI most people seem to use is molasses at that resolution.

    I haven’t found, what you describe, to be the case at all. I frequently switch between 1080 and 1440 on games like PUBG, GTAV and COD. Without adjusting in game sensitivity or my mouse DPI setting the controls remain the same regardless of screen resolution.

    This is a strange one.
    On a previous mouse (cant remember which) I found as Armenius recounted.
    But my current mouse (G502 Hero) is as you say.

    I’ve not encountered it with a Logitech MX518, G500s, G502, Corsair M65 and Razer Death Adder.
