why don't we wait and see how the 3050/9 in this actually performs
I hear it performs decently if you use 500 CPI or 250 CPI; anything above that it sucks. That's not a surprise because of the hardware. If it's the standard 3050 it's probably a 500 CPI sensor, with no smoothing, that runs close to 6700 FPS.
You can ask the people who used the Aurora beta samples or BST. That mouse had a 3050 in it first.

When you get an exclusivity contract your sensor has a different name until it's released to the public. The difference with those variants tends to be only the SROM.
I don't consider a SROM as a sensor.
What magic can you pull off with a 19x19 sensor that cannot run past 500 CPI without major sacrifices? That's why there is a PMW-3320.
They are using the MCU to create CPI steps above 2000, which indicates this mouse is nothing special. This era isn't about faking CPI through MCU.

With a community like this you can't really just spout generic marketing lines like "awesome tracking sensor due to our custom technology" and expect everyone to love it. People here wanna know about perfect control speed, smoothing, etc. I mean honestly, if you don't even know something as basic as the dimensions...
Assuming not a troll, I would guess he's probably just someone who lucked into being a product tester without really knowing much about the technical side of mice. Or maybe an intern/low level employee who wants to prove they can make it in marketing or something.
I think he is just some guy who subscribed to SteelSeries' newsletter.Edited by popups - 9/25/15 at 12:43pm
