So far your evidence has been feels, second hand feels, and insults. Not super convincing.
If you have a good argument and are interested in the truth some push back is useful. You don't need to take it personally. We aren't "consumer cattle" if we don't automatically believe you when your experiance does not match ours. We would be seriously credulous if we believed some random guy on the internet over our own experiance, wouldn't we? Also, you really believe power saving without performance impact is impossible? We are already at the limit of physics? A more efficient chip seems pretty reasonable to me, better process and more self contained. Maybe there is something true to this and Logitech achieved lower power use with aggressive power saving, instead of only more efficient hardware, but insults are not going to convince anyone. Come up with a test that could prove your idea wrong and come back with some data if you want us to believe you. Or you can just insult us more and we can write you off as a nutter.
These kind of issues have been proven in the past, micro-stutter was a real problem that not everyone believed. I noticed it but I didn't understand why it felt so bad. It took more than forum posts saying "it feels bad" to point to the real issue and convince those who could solve it to act. Those posts were true but they didn't offer anyone a way to test improvements or see the issue for themselves. A lot of the "fixes" offered were total garbage and had nothing to do with the cause of the issue. If you come up with a convincing and reproducible way someone could prove the issue to themselves you could probably get Logitech to fix it, since if people could reliably test for it on their system it would generate social media noise.
A power draw test would be helpful as a first pass that doesn't require very expensive equipment. Is it really using less power when it feels sluggish to you or is it caused something else? Maybe someone with a decent current meter also has the mouse and could test it?
