Logitech’s G Pro X Superlight is its lightest wireless gaming mouse yet

Tech News

Not to be outdone by manufacturers gunning to make the lightest gaming mouse out there (like the recent 66-gram SteelSeries Aerox 3 Wireless), Logitech’s new G Pro X Superlight weighs less than 63 grams without the need for holes. Most other manufacturers are punching honeycomb-shaped hole patterns out of their mice to achieve lighter weights, while Logitech’s latest is simple and smooth all over. The Superlight is a lighter version of Logitech’s popular $130 G Pro Wireless, which weighs 80 grams – and if you haven’t experienced a gaming mouse that’s this light, it’s on the verge of feeling like a hollow prototype. The Superlight comes in a matte-textured off-white finish in addition to an all-black finish that resembles the G Pro Wireless. It looks and feels fantastic. The newer mouse has far fewer LEDs, which Logitech says aids in cutting back the weight and maximising battery life. The glowing “G” logo near the palm is gone, as are the LEDs located near the scroll wheel to indicate the DPI sensitivity. There’s just one small LED now, and it only tells you battery status. Logitech used a “zero-additive” material, which it says results in a smoother glide across surfaces.

Steam now adds PS5 controller support

Valve has officially announced that the PS5’s DualSense controller is now supported in Steam. Games using the Steam Input API can now recognise the controller and display the correct button prompts. They’ll also be able to access the DualSense’s LED, trackpad, rumble, and gyro features, though there’s no mention of support for its adaptive triggers. The functionality is currently available in Steam’s public beta client, with plans for a full release “after further testing.” Notably absent from Valve’s official announcement is any mention of the DualSense’s adaptive triggers, which allow it to offer a variable amount of trigger resistance with some truly excellent results. Thanks to the update, games that use the Steam Input API should now work with the PS5 controller with no work required from individual game developers. The DualSense is among over 200 controllers that are supported by the API, which also includes race wheels and dance pads in addition to more traditional controllers like the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and the PS4’s DualShock 4. For now, if you want to try out the functionality for yourself, you’ll have to opt into the Steam client beta. The controller can be connected via Bluetooth or with a USB-C cable.
