Corsair Sabre RGB Pro Gaming Mouse Review
Peter Donnell / 6 months ago
Gaming mice used to come with ways of adding more weight to balance them and adjust their feel, but it seems those days are long gone. The age of the heavy mouse is making way for the new wave of ultra-light gaming mice! Anything under 100 grams seems to be the goal, and they’re proving extremely popular with gamers around the world. Today, Corsair is having a go at it with the Sabre RGB Pro Gaming Mouse. It clocks in at just 74g, so it should be pretty nimble. That’s certainly not the lightest ultra-light I’ve seen, but it’s certainly packing more features than many of its rivals too.
Corsair Sabre RGB Pro
This mouse isn’t just built to be light, it’s built for some serious speed too. Everything about it is tuned for class-leading performance. Corsair has equipped it with their new AXON Hyper-Processing Technology, allowing it to run with an 8000Hz polling rate. Corsair Quickstrike Buttons and Omron switches, a low-drag paracord cable, and the stunning PixArt PWM3392 sensor, which can deliver 450 IPS and 50G acceleration, as well as 1 DPI resolution steps up to a whopping 18,000 DPI. If most gaming mice are like sports cars, this one is a hypercar!
