Asus adds a new member to its ROG series: the ROG Strix Scope II 96 Wireless. This innovative keyboard features a compact 96 percent layout that integrates the numeric keypad into the main keyboard. This design gives users the benefits of a numeric keypad without sacrificing the advantages of a compact keyboard.
ROG NX Snow switches: for a unique typing experience
The ROG Strix Scope II 96 Wireless relies on Asus’ in-house ROG NX Snow switches. These mechanical switches offer linear tuning and a so-called “thocky” typing feel, which is achieved by a silicone foam-insulated bottom case. The keycaps are made of polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), and thanks to hotswap PCB, the switches can also be replaced.
Various connectivity options for maximum flexibility
The ROG Strix Scope II 96 Wireless offers three connectivity options: It can be connected and charged via a 2-meter USB-C-to-A cable, it can connect to up to three devices at once via Bluetooth, and it offers a 2.4 GHz connection at 1,000 hertz via its own ROG Omni Receiver. Asus promises a runtime of 1,300 hours with RGB lighting disabled.
Availability and Price
The ROG Strix Scope II will hit the market in Germany, Austria and Switzerland in July. Asus has not yet mentioned a recommended retail price.
