Corsair iCUE NEXUS Companion Touch Screen Review
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
It seems like Corsair just can’t stop creating new stuff recently. They already have some truly awesome and unique peripherals thanks to their acquisitions of both SCUF Gaming and Elgato. The Steamdeck is an amazing desktop companion for gamers and streamers alike. However, now they’ve come up with yet another interface. It’s called the iCUE NEXUS, and it’s a tiny touchscreen that can sit on your desk, on the back of your keyboard and more. It’s really as simple as that! It’s not something we knew we needed, but they made it anyway, and I’m intrigued.
Corsair iCUE NEXUS Companion Touch Screen
It offers up a slim yet nice and wide LCD touch screen display. I don’t have the resolution, but we do know it’s a backlit display with a glass-fronted touch panel. What’s cool is that it’s fully customisable. You can display up to six icons on the display, or widgets that take up the same space, such as 1×6, or 2 x 1×3, and they can feature animated gifs, custom text, images, and much more. You can have up to 200 panels too and simply swipe through them. If you have iCUE for other Corsair devices, you’ll be glad to know that the NEXUS works through the same software too. Plus you’ll be able to take extensive control of the settings of other Corsair devices too.
