ASUS ROG Peripherals: New Input Devices for CES 2023
ASUS ROG has unveiled its latest ASUS ROG Peripherals peripherals and accessories as part of the “ROG For Those Who Dare Maxed Out Event” taking place alongside CES 2023. Among them, a new mouse, a custom keyboard, an Xbox-certified tri-mode controller, and a gaming chair.
ROG Harpe Ace Aim Lab Edition Gaming Mouse and Hone Ace Aim Lab Edition Mouse Pad
With the ASUS ROG Harpe Ace Aim Lab Edition wireless gaming mouse, you can expect an exciting rodent that is primarily aimed at Esports professionals. It has been tested by the pros at Aim Lab and weighs just 54 grams.
It features a case made from a revolutionary bio-based nylon material, ROG AimPoint optical sensor with 36,000 dpi, ROG SpeedNova wireless technology, and ROG Micro Switches with a 70 million click life.
Along with the Aim Lab Settings Optimizer software, your performance is measured and analyzed to find the best possible settings. The ROG Hone Ace Aim Lab Edition mouse pad measures 508 x 420 mm and is designed for the Aim Lab X ROG 360 task within the Aim Lab software to improve aiming in a full 360-degree range in shooters.
Here, the hybrid fabric surface is said to improve the mouse’s gliding properties and provide low friction. Thanks to protective nano-coating, water, oil and dust are repelled.
ROG Azoth Gaming Keyboard
To match, there’s a new custom keyboard in the form of the ASUS ROG Azoth gaming keyboard with a 75 percent layout. You are supposed to be able to put together and customize this one completely individually. It features a metal cover with silicone gasket and triple-layer damping, hot-swappable and factory-lubricated ROG NX mechanical switches, ROG keyboard stabilizers, and ROG PBT double-shot keycaps.
A lube kit is also included with the Azoth, which you can use to change the typing feel. Add to that an OLED display with intuitive controls, tri-mode connectivity with SpeedNova 2.4 GHz wireless technology and macOS support, and adjustable feet in a full three tilt angles.
ROG Raikiri Pro: Tri-mode professional controller
On a tri-mode connectivity, that is, wirelessly in the 2.4 GHz radio band, via Bluetooth and via USB-C cable at the same time, also has the professional controller ROG Raikiri Pro, which is designed for PC and Xbox consoles.
Individual pictures, texts or animations can be displayed on the built-in OLED display, but also the charging status, the muting of the microphone or profile displays. Two buttons on the Raikiri Pro also allow you to quickly change profiles, even while the game is running.
The Armoury Crate companion software also lets you customize the four left and right buttons on the back for in-game commands and even change the sensitivity of the analog sticks. The intensity of the vibration motors can also be adjusted.
There are physical trigger locks that let you adjust the deflection of the left and right triggers to match the current game. In addition, the Raikiri Pro has a built-in ESS DAC, which should improve the sound of a connected headset or headphones.
The basic model of the ASUS ROG Raikiri (without Pro) is supposed to be wired and have two buttons on the back. It is said to be available soon, which suggests that the Pro will be a bit longer in coming.
ROG Destrier Ergo Gaming Chair
To make sure you can sit comfortably and ergonomically while gaming, ASUS also offers the ROG Destrier Ergo Gaming Chair. It relies on a futuristic look and exceptional adjustability to enhance comfort. It features head and lumbar support, as well as padded armrests with a special elevation mode for mobile gaming.
