Could you put the PMW3320 in the normal version? Or maybe something else...?
Their v1 ambi should be focused towards the general/casual consumer. They can use the 3310, LED logo, MCU filtering, higher debounce, squishy Chinese Omrons, soft feedback encoder, transparent coated plastic. braided cable, etc.
Their v2 ambi would be for the competitive player. That would mean an ALPS encoder, Japanese Omrons, better plastic for the shell, no LED for the logo, no MCU filtering, better debounce code, better mouse feet, non braided cable, 3320 sensor, original lens, etc.
There is no reason to sell two 3310 versions if it's simply a higher cost varient and lower cost variant. Meaning, just changing switches and encoder.
Doesn't CM have the Spawn and the Xornet? Doesn't Logitech have the G302 and the G303? Doesn't Razer have the Mamba and the DeathAdder? Other companies are doing the same thing.

Honestly I wouldn't want them to use any sensor BUT either the 3310 or 3366 if it becomes public. Don't want a 3090. Don't want a 3988. The 3310 sensor is by far the best I've used since I haven't yet had the chance to try a 3366. It's not for everyone, but it IS well regarded as being better than everything else aside from a 3366. Some people claim the 3988 is better, but I'm not one of them.. and I have a long history with the 3988. It's good.. but the 3310 does it better for me.
Catering towards the professional player by using a sensor with higher latency and increasing that input delay further by using MCU filtering?
Pros use the 3310 because the newest products from their sponsor utilize the 3310. If those products had the 3988, they would be using that, like the players using DeathAdders.
I think the 3320 is cheaper than the 3310 and the 3310 is cheaper than the 3988.
The 3320 is said to have lower amounts of smoothing and better frame rate behavior. Which should make the sensor preferred by demanding users. If the AM010 SROM is released to the public the sensor would have no smoothing below 2000 CPI. Then you can have a fixed (medium) frame rate sensor, with no smoothing at 800 CPI.Edited by popups - 11/7/15 at 10:06am
