Logitech has announced the Logitech G703 and G903 gaming mouse, as well as its first-ever wireless charging mouse mat called the Powerplay.
Both mice also feature the PMW3366 sensor, a widely apreciated optical mouse sensor in the gaming scene with a max DPI (dots per inch) coverage of 12,000 and you’ll find a 1 millisecond report time over Logitech’s proprietary 2.4GHz Lightspeed wireless protocol.
POWERPLAY creates an electromagnetic energy field over a large surface area – so you don’t have to rest your gaming mouse on a tiny charging target. This field is captured and transformed into charging current by the included POWERCORE module, which attaches magnetically to the underside of a compatible gaming mouse in place of the existing weight door. It’s designed to keep charging even through high-speed flick shots or lifting and repositioning, and its base is only 2mm thick – so it’s comfortable to use as a gaming surface.
We also wanted to make sure that the wireless connection was as reliable and easy to set up as possible, so we included a LIGHTSPEED Wireless receiver in the POWERPLAY base forcompetition-level responsiveness. And, thanks to Logitech G’s decades of wireless development experience, LIGHTSPEED has a signal strength up to 16 times higher than the competition, while its unique Frequency Agility Mechanism easily avoids any interference it can’t overcome. So all you have to do is plug in POWERPLAY, insert the POWERCORE, and turn your mouse off and back on again. You’ll be up and running immediately, getting both wireless power and LIGHTSPEED data over a single USB port. You’ll never need to worry about mouse cables again.
Logitech G LIGHTSPEED Wireless Technology
Trusted by gaming enthusiasts and esports professionals worldwide, LIGHTSPEED wireless technology can be the difference between winning it all or walking away with nothing. Featuring a one-millisecond report rate and end-to-end signal optimization, LIGHTSPEED delivers competition-level responsiveness at speeds faster than many competitive wired gaming mice. Decades of wireless engineering experience mean LIGHTSPEED has wireless signal strength up to 16x (12dB) higher than the competition and a unique Frequency Agility Mechanism that automatically avoids problematic interference, ensuring smooth and consistent performance.
LIGHTSPEED underpins both the POWERPLAY wireless charging system and G903 and G703 gaming mice, meaning these devices can pair directly with the POWERPLAY's integrated LIGHTSPEED wireless receiver for optimal signal strength and the convenience of charging and data over a single USB cable.
POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System
POWERPLAY reinvents the possibilities of wireless charging. A departure from existing wireless charging standards, which require the charging device to sit idle in one specific area to charge, POWERPLAY was designed from the ground up to deliver uninterrupted charging over its mousing surface - even while the mouse is in play. The wireless charging system uses a groundbreaking application of electromagnetic resonance that creates an energy field above POWERPLAY's 275 x 320mm surface to deliver wireless power without interfering with the precise tracking and data transmission of high-performance gaming mice.
The POWERPLAY energy field is captured and transformed into charging current by the POWERCORE™ module, which attaches magnetically to compatible wireless gaming mice, including the Logitech G903 and G703.
Logitech G903 and G703 LIGHTSPEED Wireless Gaming Mice
The latest in Logitech G's long history of high performance gaming mice, both the G903 and G703 deliver on the brand's expectation of superior performance and unparalleled quality while also adding new LIGHTSPEED technology. Additional compatibility with the POWERPLAY Wireless Charging System provides untethered play, unlimited charging, and unmatched performance. Features of the G903 and G703 include:
- Pixel-Precise Sensor: The Logitech G903 and G703 mice come equipped with the PMW3366 optical sensor, widely regarded by esports professionals and gaming enthusiasts as the best gaming mouse sensor on the market. Thanks to years of innovations, the PMW3366 has zero smoothing, filtering or acceleration across the entire DPI range (200-12,000 DPI). The resulting experience is incredible tracking accuracy and consistent responsiveness, even at speeds over 400 IPS.
- Advanced Mechanical Button Tensioning: Precisely-tensioned metal springs and exclusive mechanical pivot hinges on G903 keep the primary left and right mouse buttons poised to trigger. This technology delivers an exceptionally clean and crisp button feel, response, and consistency. Logitech G improved on the design and boosted button durability up to 2.5x with 50 million click switches.
- Supreme Comfort and Quality: Both mice deliver long-lasting comfort. The Logitech G903 features a configurable button layout and ambidextrous design that allows for left- or right-handed use and works with nearly any mouse grip style, including palm, claw and fingertip grips. The Logitech G703 features a lightweight, ergonomically designed body that was made to mold to your hand. Rubber grips on the left and right sides offer added control. You can use the mice directly out-of-the-box, or you can program the buttons with custom game commands using Logitech Gaming Software (LGS).
