Corsair has reissued its two Dark Core RGB mice in a Pro version. The recommended retail price remains unchanged, but now the new Corsair gaming mouse coming with USB-C, wireless charging, a faster sampling rate, a better sensor, and there are various upgrades.
Corsair promises two decisive upgrades for passionate gamers for its two new gaming mice: Thanks to Corsair Slipstream Wireless Technology, the wireless sampling rate has been increased to 2,000 Hz – twice as fast as Corsair’s standard gaming mice, and the latency is said to be even shorter with many wired mice. In addition, the optical sensor has been updated to a PixArt PAW3392, which has a resolution of 18,000 DPI, which is even higher than that of the predecessor.
The popular shape of the Corsair mouse has not been changed, but a new feature is a USB-C port, which can be used to charge the mouse or to use it as a wired mouse. In addition, Bluetooth is also on board, but for the lowest possible latency of less than one millisecond, you should use the supplied USB adapter.
The Corsair Dark Core RGB Pro SE version can also be charged using a Qi-certified charging or mouse pad. The battery should last for 36 hours of use with a charge via the 2.4 GHz connection, although this value is probably achieved with the lighting activated.
As the name suggests, the corsair gaming mouse is equipped with RGB lighting, the color of which can be freely controlled in nine zones. The RGB lighting can be synchronized with other Corsair iCUE-compatible devices; all eight buttons can be freely programmed using the supplied software. The Omron switches are said to survive 50 million clicks.

The two new corsair gaming mice are now available to buy on the Amazon.com website, and the recommended retail price remains unchanged at around $79.99 for the Dark Core RGB Pro Wireless Mouse, while the Qi-compatible SE version costs $89.99.
