Microsoft revived its Classic IntelliMouse in 2017, and now, the company is introducing the Pro IntelliMouse, which is the same design as the classic model, but the new one has been designed for gaming.
Unlike the classic version, the new gaming version features a new tracking sensor, revamped key actuation, and there’s even a textured finish and a braided cable.
The new improvements should translate into a better gaming experience with a responsive mouse. In addition, users will be able to change the color at the back of the mouse to match other RGB-capable accessories.
The new Pro IntelliMouse is available in black and white colors. The new sensor supports up to 16,000 DPI and a 12,000-fps refresh rate, and even further, you can use the Windows Mouse and Keyboard Center (MKC) software to set up macros, and adjust DPI, or remap buttons.
