Logitech has upgraded the capabilities of mice based on its HERO optical sensor. Via a software update, users can now unlock a new 25,600 dpi setting. Previously, the maximum setting was 16,000 dpi.
At 25,600 DPI, the HERO 25K sensor is the world’s first sub-micron level mouse sensor. 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. 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.

HERO 25K utilizes a smart power management system to continuously adjust frame rates based on the movement of the mouse to minimize power consumption. Even at high DPI, HERO is 10x more power efficient than previous Logitech G sensors.
Users can download the latest G HUB software via the Logitech website. The update is available for the following mice:
  • G903 HERO
  • G502 LIGHTSPEED
  • PRO Wireless
  • G703 HERO
  • G604
  • G502 HERO
  • G403 HERO
  • PRO
