DOOM Eternal & Warzone

Trying all modes of connectivity, gaming has been pleasurable. In something fast-paced like Doom Eternal, while only a few levels in so far, the Dark Core RGB PRO SE has allowed us to swing around to draw down on hellspawn trying to sneak up behind us, and is still accurate enough to deliver kill zone shots which makes demon destruction easier. Even when it comes to the wall-grabs, and aiming for the double jumps across various cavernous drops where bridges have collapsed, the mouse was in no way our bottleneck to killing our way through this game.

Even in something like Warzone, where you have to pick up bits by hovering an icon, and with slower action unless you run face-first into a squad, the Dark Core RGB PRO SE was up to the task. We also like the extra buttons much more for Warzone than in DOOM, and since we can reach all of the buttons this time, we get to take advantage of the options and customizability Corsair has designed into this device.

Windows and Productivity

As we do regularly, highlighting text section in word docs, editing images for dust, cropping them, all of that went rather well after just a few minutes of having the Dark Core RGB PRO SE in our hands. While we did not need more than 6000 DPI to get what we needed to do done, whether gaming or editing large images on a 4K, 55-inch screen, we were able to fly around on that real-estate without any need to lift the mouse.

For those that like lower DPI, we did miss any LOD setting options, but the wander is very slight when lifting then mouse, but mainly due to the weight shift as you lift it, not from lack of grip. Even though many will use the profiles for various game titles, there is no reason this mouse could not be a shortcut master for things like video and photo editing, and still be a beast when the time comes to game.

The Dark Core RGB PRO SE also offers options that one may not think about at first. Yes, you can go wired for connectivity, and all is well. You could go Slipstream wireless rather than that cable too, but what you may not have thought about is that nobody says it cannot be wirelessly connected to one PC, while Bluetooth connected to another, at the same time. At a flick of a switch, you can jump from one PC to another, clearing room for the desk of those who use multiple systems nearby!

With a few years of abusing computer parts, he decided to take his chances and try to get a review job. As an avid overclocker, Chad is always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals.
