Custom PixArt Native 18,000 DPI Optical Sensor, Ensure your inputs are never missed with an extremely accurate optical sensor, customizable in 1 DPI steps.

GLAIVE RGB PRO uses a custom PMW3391 optical sensor, developed in conjunction with PixArt, that ensures incredibly high performance and accuracy. Its DPI can be precisely adjusted from 100 up to a native 18,000, in 1 DPI steps. It delivers instantaneous response across the entire resolution range, enabling advanced tracking accuracy, consistent responsiveness at any speed, and high-speed motion detection. High sensitivity allows for small movements of the mouse to correspond to larger movements on screen (for speed), whereas a low sensitivity allows for larger movements (for pixel-perfect precision). The resolution can be adjusted on-the-fly between five DPI stages, which are preconfigured to 800, 1500, 3000, 6000 and 9000 DPI. These values can be fully customized via CORSAIR iCUE software.

GLAIVE RGB PRO’s optical sensor can track and report the position of the cursor at speeds up to 400 inches per second, with a mouse acceleration of up to 50G. Many games and styles of play – especially low-sensitivity gaming, such as sniping – involve rapidly moving the mouse from one side of the mouse pad to the other. For these movements to be tracked accurately (and for your actions to be accurately reflected on-screen), the sensor must be able to report data precisely at high speeds and the mouse must be able to handle rapid acceleration.

Seven Fully Programmable Buttons, Take control and personalize your layout.

GLAIVE RGB PRO is fitted with total of seven buttons, preconfigured out of the box with unique assignments. These functions can be fully customized with CORSAIR iCUE software to create a fully personalized button layout.

Ultra-Durable OMRON Switches, Custom tuned for gaming, providing an ultrafast response and long-term reliability.

High-quality and reliable button switches ensure that GLAIVE RGB PRO stays dependable during the most intense combat. With a rating of more than 50 million clicks, they will carry you through years of gaming. With an operating force of 60gf (gram-force) and a 0.45mm actuation distance, every button click feels satisfying and provides the best possible performance for fast-paced genres such as FPS.

Three-Zone Dynamic RGB Lighting, Dynamic and vibrant lighting with virtually unlimited customization.

Customizable RGB backlighting provides nearly unlimited lighting adjustability, giving you that touch of personalization to make GLAIVE RGB PRO your own. It features three independent lighting zones: (1) front, (2) sides, and (3) the CORSAIR logo. These zones can be set to any static RGB color or programmed to display dynamic customizable effects, such as Color Shift or Color Pulse, through CORSAIR iCUE software.

Programmable with CORSAIR iCUE Software, Intelligent Control, Unlimited Possibilities

CORSAIR iCUE software connects all your CORSAIR iCUE compatible products together in a single interface, giving you complete control over your entire setup. Synchronized lighting across all your iCUE compatible devices brings your system to life, while powerful macro control accelerates your game.

Onboard Profile Storage, Take your settings on the go.

Custom actions and lighting profiles can be saved on the mouse’s onboard storage without requiring CORSAIR iCUE software to be running. Start using your mouse to its full potential right out of the box – no drivers, software or additional setup are required. GLAIVE RGB PRO stores three profiles for hardware playback, including macros and lighting effects. These profiles can be customized and saved to the onboard storage through iCUE.

Surface Calibration Utility, Play your best on any surface.

GLAIVE RGB PRO utilizes the Surface Calibration Utility in CORSAIR iCUE software to evaluate the surface that you’re using and adjust the sensor accordingly, instantly optimizing performance. Out of the box, GLAIVE RGB PRO is pre-calibrated for the following CORSAIR mouse pads: MM200, MM300, MM350, MM400, MM600, MM800 RGB POLARIS and MM1000. This means that the mouse sensor is tuned specifically to unique surface parameters like color, contrast, and texture, as well as the distance of the sensor from the surface. When using non-CORSAIR mouse pads or other surfaces, we always advise taking just a few seconds to run the Surface Calibration Utility in iCUE to get the most out of your surface.
