CORSAIR Announces iCUE Software for macOS

CORSAIR, a world leader in PC gaming peripherals and enthusiast components, today announced that its industry-leading CORSAIR iCUE software is now available for macOS, unlocking the full potential of CORSAIR mice, keyboards, headsets, and more for Mac users. Available as a free download, iCUE enables users to completely personalize their peripherals - increasing productivity, customizing aesthetics, improving gaming performance, and more.

iCUE for macOS features support for CORSAIR RGB keyboards, mice, headsets, and accessories when used on Mac, such as the award-winning K70 RGB MK.2 mechanical keyboard and the iconic M65 RGB ELITE optical gaming mouse. CORSAIR iCUE for macOS also supports all currently shipping CORSAIR headsets, including the newly released VIRTUOSO RGB Wireless, as well as accessories such as the MM800 RGB POLARIS RGB mouse pad and ST100 RGB premium headset stand.
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.

Whether you play on Windows or Mac, download iCUE to enable intelligent control and unlimited possibilities for your CORSAIR peripherals.

Games using macs, see, I have seen stupid people, like, there are stupid people who try to turn into a parking lot entrance but are 40ft off, there are some more stupid people who try to eat soup with a knife, I’m sorry. Mac gamers don’t even compare.

I was asking what he meant? Is he stating that someone that uses a mac for gaming is stupid? More stupid than those other stupid people he is talking about? lol (I don't own a mac) And your response is to ask if I'm stupid...

I would like to ask, why spend 5000$ on a computer with the intent to game on it when it doesn't even have support for a lot of games to begin with? Not to mention, it can lose in gaming performance to a 1000$ gaming computer. So I shall ask again, why Mac? Why add support for a growing luxurious expensive ripoff line of computers that *require* special coding? I don't even want to argue the price argument, since that has been argued hundreds of times and is boring to talk about. I would like to ask developers, why waste so much precious and valuable time for a platform that very few people, the only people that have 100$ bills as their tissue paper, use? Not to mention it is different from the normal non-ripoff platform that a majority of people use called Windows, so I guess what I'm trying to ask is, why waste valuable time and resources for Mac? I bet you they will add iCue support for the 1000$ monitor stand :)

I wouldn't buy a mac to game, then again i wouldn't buy a mac period. But I am sure there are those that own a mac for work related reasons but would like to enjoy a game once in awhile too. Or maybe they prefer mac for a reason unrelated to gaming but don't want to spend even more money for a PC so want to game on the Mac. Hell if I know, but people with Macs sometimes game on Macs. Calling someone stupid because they own a Mac and want to game on it to seems a bit harsh. You can express your opinion on Mac all you want but I don't see why someone needs to be stupid because they use one. There are plenty of educated people that prefer mac for one reason or another. I always kinda thought it was more an image thing but that is just my opinion. I Know in the past Mac was the go to for many in the audio/video arena but nowadays I have no idea how a high end Mac compares to a PC. I really don't care to know either.

I actually think it's cool that Corsair brought out support for Mac. I'm a big fan of that brand and Mac users will have more options now. It is their money anyways. What do I care what they buy. Why do you care? :confused:

So why invest all that extra peripheral hardware into Mac in the first place? Sure, people want to game every now and then, but it makes no sense why someone would make such an appearance upgrade for something they barely do. It is like buying a Bentley Bentayga for racing on the Indy 500 vs a Hellcat Redeye; Yes the Bentayga can race, but the Hellcat Redeye is more suited for it. The Bentayga has a different purpose, and I honestly think it is stupid to invest so much money into aerodynamics and grip just for racing very rarely. Likewise, Macs have a completely different purpose, and it is not the wisest idea to invest a lot of money to make it very suitable for gaming when you rarely do it. You probably have the money for a gaming laptop if you can afford a Mac anyways.

Why do Mac users need a keyboard or a mouse? Why would they want to customize macros or RGB lighting on said peripherals? Corsair you make no sense SMH

I'm just going to slowly step away from this thread. I get your point. Truly I do. I don't think Mac owners are stupid for wanting to use their Mac for gaming or buying a cool Corsair keyboard because well its cool. If I were a Mac user I would prefer to use it for everything just like I do with my PC. Knowing what I know of Mac I have never been tempted to buy one though.

That's a question a pure mac user themselves would know. Every mac user that I know also has a pc, this itself confuses me except for one who develops for both the others don't have a mac specific reason for having one but have a reason or multiple reasons for owning a PC. I never get a straight answer from them on why not just a pc so I stopped asking.

Mac are not built for gaming but as software developer this thing is awesome. macOS has the most usable desktop experience from all Unix-like operating system.
Most OEM PC were built with unbalanced spec like high end i9 with integrated graphics and 1080P 80% sRGB display.

And surprisingly building a PC by yourself with similar spec of a iMac cost more than a iMac. This high resolution display with wide color gamut is really good for designers and coders. Especially for display characters in CJK languages. This screen along is costing more than a lot of computers and at this price I almost considered the Mac is giving the CPU and motherboard for free.

So as a gammer I got a custom PC with Ryzen and Geforce. And as a programmer I got a iMac and also a MacBook Pro for coding.

And I hope Corsair could build Elgato PCIe AIC drivers for macOS so I can get the new Mac Pro.
