HyperX Pulsefire Core Gaming Mouse Review


To customize the HyperX Pulsefire Core, you need to install NGenuity driver software. The NGenuity Software is available for download from the HyperX support website; the software allows you to customize your mouse button functions, set macros, and RGB lighting.

The NGenuity software looks and feel very simple and basic, it didn’t feel very snappy and a little bit leggy at startup.

Though the good thing is the HyperX Pulsefire Core has onboard memory to save profile directly to the mouse itself so ones you customize everything to your liking you save it on the mouse and don’t need to run the NGenuity software anymore. Each profile can be bound to programs, so the mouse automatically switches between these once the set program launches.

Profiles can be simply drag and drop to import or export.

The first tab is Lighting, which allows you change the lighting on the HyperX logo on the mouse. The lighting customization was pretty basic, with only four modes Solid, Color Cycle, Breathing, Trigger and last is the none which turn off the lighting.

Now Performance tab is also very basic as well, offing just DPI sensitivity levels and polling rate. I liked that HyperX offers to add color indication with the DPI levels, which will change the HyperX logo color for few seconds corresponding to its DPI level.

The final tab is Macros, which allows you button customization and create macros with the macro editor. The button customization not limited as you can reprogram all buttons, including primary left and right buttons.
