Corsair Dark Core RGB Pro SE is the next-generation wireless gaming mouse. Here is the Corsair Dark Core RGB Pro SE review. Can the Corsair Dark Core RGB Pro SE compete with its rivals?
Corsair has revised the entire mouse range in the past few months, be it with updates to existing mice or through the introduction of new models. The present sample belongs to the first category. The Corsair Dark Core RGB Pro SE is unmistakably following in the footsteps of the Dark Core RGB SE and is intended to further improve it with new features. The test reveals whether this is successful.
The Dark Core RGB (SE) saw the light of day in connection with the manufacturer’s Unplag & Play series. In short, it was a premium mouse that was stripped of the cable. The new Corsair Dark Core RGB Pro SE, of course, ties in right here but should go one better. And without anticipating too much: Well done Corsair! The optics and housing have remained relatively the same, but there have already been a few adjustments. More on this later. In addition to the slight “optical” retouching, something has also happened under the hood. For example, the sensor was changed. Also, the mouse is now allowed an abstraction rate of up to 2000Hz via slipstream, which has not yet been awarded to any other peripheral from the manufacturer. The same applies to the scope of the lighting.
The mentioned changes to the case basically only affect the left side. In the predecessor, a sniper button was built in, which was flanked by the back and forward buttons. This is no longer the case here. The sniper button has been removed and the other two buttons have been given a more classic layout and are framed by five of the nine RGB zones. Since they are addressable, you can let the light flow here.
Otherwise, everything has stayed the same in terms of housing. The back of the mouse has light knobs and a soft-touch surface, which not only gives the mouse more grip but also a recognition value. What has remained the same is that you can add a finger rest to the right side. A very positive change can also be found at the front. Charging is now done via a USB-C connector. Alternatively, the SE can also be recharged using QI, which is an interesting combination, especially with the Corsair MM1000.
