ICUE 4 is consuming too many machine resources


Recommended Posts

ICUE needs 1,96 GB of disk space for installation, it's enormous :eek:

In memory consumption, we are at 300 MB.

However, I only have 2 peripherals.

Corsair Strafe RGB keyboard and Corsair ST100 RGB Headset Stand.

In the installation folders, I only need 2 files which total 4,5MB.

 

\Program Files\Corsair\CORSAIR iCUE 4 Software\modules\

st100_rgb.dll

strafe_rgb.dll

 

It's just unacceptable.

The iCUE software is not a modular software and installs all necessary files for our products. As for the memory usage being 300MB, it is only 0.23% of your 128GB of system memory. Even if you only had 16GB of system memory it would only work out to 1.875% of total system memory. The memory usage is far from being excessive where things like most web browsers will utilize well over 1GB of system memory when you only have only a few tabs open.

The iCUE software is not a modular software .

 

maybe it should be in the future?

2gb storage and 300mb in ram (he didn't count the services and their CPU usage) for just a keyboard may be a tad excessive?

comparing a driver to a user application makes little sense. The fact that Autocad takes me 7gb of ram, or FS2020 taking 20gb doesn't make it aceptable for iCue to take 4 times more than all other drivers combined.

 

I am afraid, until user experience becomes a thing at Corsair, this kind of complaints and requests will keep coming as they have been for the whole life of iCUE 3 already
