Sabre Mouse Other Features
There is a slew of iCUE driven customizations that are possible, of course. RGB lighting is limited to two zones on the device. However, there are five on-board DPI presets, for fast switching during game play or otherwise.
Personally, I found this useful for immediately being able to “slow” the mouse movements when I required more precise selections. For example, in game play this could be for long distance targeting, menu selections, or fine manipulations vs more wild action FPS situations where faster mouse pointing is more desirable.
In order to take advantage of the much higher polling rate of this mouse, Corsair does recommend a higher performance system – seriously. Due to the reporting rate, it sends far more data back and they’re recommending an Intel i7 9th generation or AMD Ryzen 7 2nd generation to take advantage of the the 8,000Hz polling rate. Lower polling rates can easily be serviced by lower end systems, but regardless, they suggest motherboard direct USB ports. Corsair is taking responsive gaming inputs seriously, so noted.
One of the software driven features, from Corsair’s iCUE, that I never really gave a thought to needing previously has become more useful to me. Mousing surface calibration, and using it actually makes a difference sometimes. There were occasions when I was a bit irritated at what I considered poor mouse response, but after calibrating for the surface the Sabre RGB Pro was riding on, things started working more as expected. Underrated feature IMO, try it.
