ASUS has launched the third iteration of their Gladius gaming mouse, the Gladius II Origin (a missed chance for a Gladius III, uh?) There’s a 12,000 DPI optical sensor under the hood (unclear if it’s a PixArt solution), and the switches are both Omron-developed, though two different ones at that – there’s an Omron D2FC-F-K switch and an Omron D2F-01F, with different clicking resistances, likely to incentivize sensitivity in the left mouse button. All in all, there are five buttons on this mouse (there’s a DPI selector button and two thumb buttons on the left side of the mouse).
Other features include detachable, replaceable rubber and braided cables; RGB lighting with ASUS’ Aura Sync support for the RGB zones (bottom, scroll wheel, and ROG logo); and support for ASUS’ Armoury app. The Gladius II Origin weighs in at 110 g (sans cable), and has dimensions of 126 x 67 x 45 mm, and is available now from select etailers and retailers for $99.
