Corsair iCUE Nexus Companion Touch Screen Review


Corsair iCUE Nexus Final thoughts

Corsair’s NEXUS companion is an interesting device. It has a lot of potential in what it would be able to perform. With its current software version, you can set many options for your other iCUE devices or setup buttons to launch applications with custom buttons and backgrounds. It would be nice to see some additional options like interfacing with OBS to be an addition to it like the stream-deck. The idea of being able to control scene switching with this device would be a greatly appreciated addition to it. It’s interesting to see what additional games the NEXUS will be able to link with providing addition actions to be performed in a way that it provides essentially additional keybindings. For example, in PUBG, having the option to touch a button to use a healing item or changing seats in a vehicle might be useful. The fact is, we don’t know what’s useful and not useful until we have the ability to utilize the options. The NEXUS from Corsair has the potential to because a sort of smart device for your keyboard and computer in way just like your cell phone is. the potential of the device is only limited to the imagination of the developers.
