Logitech has a treat for users of its entry-level $34.99 G203 Prodigy gaming mouse. This model was launched earlier this year and now there's a firmware update that improves the peripheral's performance. The latest 8.96.81 firmware update, which can be found over here, boosts the maximum resolution of the G203's sensor from 6000dpi to 8000dpi.
At the same time, Logitech also enhances the maximum speed from 200 IPS to 300 IPS, and the maximum acceleration from 25G to 35G.
AnandTech reports Logitech claims it is applying newly gained knowledge to improve an existing product:
The company says that it figured out how to tweak sensors and processors for maximum performance while developing one of its latest products, but does not elaborate. Perhaps, we are dealing with some sort of overclocking, or maybe Logitech is just unlocking some of the hardware capabilities, but since Logitech does not detail hardware inside its mice, we cannot be 100% sure about either of the options.
“We learned a lot of lessons in designing the new HERO sensor found in our latest Logitech G603 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse that could also be applied to the Logitech G203 Prodigy Gaming Mouse,” said Chris Pate, portfolio manager, Logitech G. “We’ve now taken that knowledge and upgraded the capabilities of the Logitech G203 to provide our customers with the latest and greatest technology from Logitech G.”
