Unboxing and comparison of Asus TUF Gaming M3 Gen. II and ROG Gladius II Core | Gaming mice under a thousand

LIGHTWEIGHT BUILD WITH A HEAVY PUNCH

ROG Gladius II Core channels the classic Gladius optical gaming mouse spirit into an accessible new form, sporting non-slip sides etched with the iconic ROG totem. Gladius II Core has a 6200-dpi optical sensor, and independent left and right buttons for accurate response and precise control. With right-handed ergonomics for extended comfort, a fatigue-preventing lightweight build, push-fit switch sockets and integrated Aura Sync illumination, Gladius II Core is primed for outstanding victories.

GAMING-GRADE PERFORMANCE

With a gaming-grade PAW3327 optical sensor, ROG Gladius II Core is the perfect sidearm for gaming glory, delivering 200- to 6200-dpi sensitivity for pinpoint precision. It also tracks up to 220 inches per second (IPS) at up to 30 g acceleration, allowing you to strafe and swipe as swiftly as needed to rule the battlefield. We’ve also optimized Gladius II Core’s interior, resulting in a high-performance gaming mouse that’s 20% lighter than the original Gladius. This eases every movement, alleviating wrist pains and fatigue – empowering you to play for longer.
