Microsoft has announced that it plans on bringing back the popular gaming peripheral, the Intellimouse back to the markets. The company revealed this information on its website alongside various new announcements regarding the new Surface Book 2 and Windows 10 Creators Update.
Microsoft claims that the new mouse, 'Microsoft Classic IntelliMouse' is inspired from the Intellimouse 3.0. It will come with firm scroll wheel and a DPI range of up to 3200. For the uninitiated, DPI or Dots per Inch is a measurement of how sensitive the mouse is. Higher the DPI, farther the cursor on your screen will move when you move your mouse. The high DPI in this upcoming Intellimouse suggests that it may sport an optical sensor rather than the traditional laser sensor.
The company has not announced any availability or pricing details for the 'Microsoft Classic IntelliMouse' at the time of writing. The listing shows a 'Coming Soon' label hinting that it could launch in coming weeks. It is not known if the new Intellimouse will have the exact same button configuration as in the original gaming mice or it will come with a revamped button configuration. However, it is likely that the mouse may come with some kind of inbuilt software as reported by Kotak.au.
