It looks like a regular mouse, although it requires a very strong USB-C cable to support those kind of speeds. It’s not the worst idea we’ve heard, as it gives you some high-speed storage while freeing up a USB slot that would normally be taken up by a wired mouse. XPG did not mention the mouse’s DPI or any other gaming specifications.
