Default iCUE causing major FPS drop in games now.

Updated to the newest iCUE and whenever I move my mouse in game FPS will drop down to 3fps from 120. Whenever I exit iCUE my FPS will go back to normal.

Any update on the problem or any older versions?

Try turning off the iCUE SDK in the Settings options of iCUE.

That was the first thing I tried, then tried to re-install ICUE and nothing helps.

Figured out the problem

MOUSE Polling Rate is killing the FPS. 1000hz and 500hz makes the FPS drop to 3

I changed it to 250 hz or 125 hz and 0 fps drop. So exactly what does the Polling rate do? and is 250 or 125 hz any problem for FPS games?

Polling rate is measured in Hz. If a mouse has a 125 Hz polling rate, it reports its position to the computer 125 times every second—or every 8 milliseconds. A 500 Hz rate means that the mouse is reporting its position to the computer every 2 milliseconds. As you can see, this can become exhaustive and affect performance.
