Corsair equipped this mouse with one of the best sensors on the market today. the PixArt PWM3392, the same award-winning sensor they put in their flagship Dark Core RGB Pro gaming mouse that I reviewed last year. It was flawless then, and it still is now. However, it benefits more from the AXON technology, which simply wasn’t around last year.
AXON Hyper-Processing Technology isn’t just a gimmick, as it means this mouse can run with a polling rate of 8000Hz, a big step up from the 1000Hz we’ve come to regard as the standard for many years now. That means the mouse can report in input to your system 8x more per millisecond than most gaming mice.
That time advantage may not sound like much, but when it comes to competitive gaming, millisecond matter. It can mean you land that headshot rather than miss it. Can I tell the difference? Honestly, it’s hard to say. The mouse is certainly responsive and surgically precise, but I’m still a lazy MMO gamer at heart and far from an eSports pro.
That being said, the mouse is fantastically comfortable in my hand.
I have fairly large hands, but I can still comfortably hold the mouse in a palm grip.
Plus, the curvy ergonomics and lightweight design means that I can still use a hybrid or fingertip grip easily enough.
There are five onboard profiles on this mouse, so you can always take your settings with you and you won’t have to rely on the software. Of course, that includes macros, DPI settings, and RGB settings too, and it’s all easily configured using the Corsair iCUE software.
