Corsair Launches iCUE for Mac

After a year of betas, Corsair today has officially launched iCUE for Mac, allowing users of Corsair’s peripherals to control and customize them in macOS. Prior to the launch, those using Corsair keyboards, mice, and headsets with a Mac were limited to the basic, built-in controls for features like RGB lighting, button remapping, and macros.

iCUE’s single intuitive interface links together supported CORSAIR products, allowing you to quickly and easily fine-tune your settings. Supported CORSAIR keyboards and mice are fully programmable with macros or key remaps, letting you specify a button or click to do anything from instant shortcuts to complex strings of commands. iCUE's robust level of customization helps you create, write, and play faster and more efficiently.

The depth to which device settings can be changed results in a tailored experience unique to each user. Adjust mouse sensitivity to your exacting preferences, down to single DPI steps, or tinker with your headset’s equalizer settings to create your ideal listening experience. iCUE also saves your settings as profiles which you can swap between instantly – or even launch automatically with your favorite programs.

Finally, take advantage of iCUE to unleash the boundless customization of RGB-lighting equipped CORSAIR peripherals. Choose from dozens of preset lighting patterns and effects to illuminate your workspace or design your own multi-layer lighting profiles. Best of all, lighting can be synchronized across all iCUE-compatible devices for truly intricate light shows.

iCUE for Mac is available for free and supports most recent Corsair products, although the company advises that older products may require a firmware update before they’ll recognize the software in macOS.

It also offers the ability to monitor system temperatures and performance as well as perform firmware updates.

    So now that RGB has made its way onto the Mac that must mean its irrelevant and it can die a quick and painless death right (fingers crossed)?
