Shane steps away from video card benching and looks at a mouse. Will he wish he was reviewing a HD 5970 instead?

I'm reviewing a mouse! It's been a while since I've looked at a peripheral and when I say a while, I mean years. Since Chinese New Year was coming in fast and GIGABYTE wanted to get a sample of the M8000X out before the factories shut down, I said to send it over to me.


To be honest, I was looking at getting a new mouse sometime soon, though GIGABYTE didn't even cross my mind. If I want a motherboard the chances are it's going to be from GIGABYTE. I'm a huge fan of their boards and I use an X58 one in my main testbed and my main machine. Video cards are much the same story with more GIGABYTE VGAs lying around than I can poke a stick at.


If I want a mouse, however, I'm going straight to Logitech. I started with a Logitech mouse and after that I had another one. After that I slightly defected to Razer for a while before coming back to Logitech and getting another and then another one in the form of the G5 which I still use today.


With the press document sitting in my inbox on the GIGABYTE M8000X, I took the time to really look through it. Damn, it looked oh so sweet. But features and software are only half the story; what really matters is how it feels. Something that most companies struggle to achieve is the greatness in a fantastic feeling mouse. Let's find out how GIGABYTE is traveling in this segment these days.
