Computex 2024: ASUS ROG presents new peripherals – Azoth Extreme and more

In addition to the new gaming handheld ASUS ROG Ally X, the manufacturer also presented its new peripherals portfolio at Computex 2024. There are upgrades in the keyboard and mouse segment with the ROG Azoth Extreme and ROG Harpe Ace Extreme. There is also the new ROG Delta II headset, the ROG Destrier Core gaming chair, while the ROG Mjolnir transforms you into Thor, the god of thunder… well, more or less at least.

ASUS ROG Azoth Extreme: Gaming keyboard with OLED display

Last year, the manufacturer made an outstanding debut in the field of custom gaming keyboards with the ROG Azoth. It has now unveiled its successor, the ASUS ROG Azoth Extreme, which is set to improve in all areas.

The new keyboard features a robust frame made of aluminum alloy and metal, while the keyboard now supports a polling rate of 8,000 Hz in wireless mode and thus implements inputs almost without any delay.

Thanks to ROG SpeedNova technology and the polling rate booster, the keyboard is said to achieve an incredible battery life of over 1,600 hours.

The updated full-color OLED touchscreen displays system information and allows seamless customization of keyboard settings. Inside the case, this premium keyboard is equipped with an adjustable gasket, allowing users to easily switch between two preferred cushioned typing feels via a quick toggle switch.

Thanks to the pre-lubricated ROG NX mechanical switches and noise-absorbing foams, the Azoth Extreme is said to be at the forefront of the market with excellent acoustics. Tri-mode connectivity allows connection via cable, 2.4 GHz wireless and Bluetooth.

ASUS ROG Harpe Ace Extreme: Gaming mouse with 42,000 dpi

The Harpe Ace gaming mouse has been given a similarly powerful upgrade and has now also been given the Extreme label. The specifications are also truly extreme:

The carbon fiber composite housing enables a weight of just 47 grams, while the composite is both strong and aesthetically pleasing. The ROG AimPoint Pro optical sensor with a resolution of 42,000 dpi ensures unparalleled performance.

ASUS has also equipped the gaming mouse with optical microswitches with a lifespan of 100 million clicks, while the mouse can also be connected via cable, wireless or Bluetooth thanks to tri-mode connectivity. The rodent also achieves a wireless sampling rate of up to 8,000 Hz.

A set of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 mouse feet is also included. Other mouse accessories include an anti-slip grip tape, a cleaning kit and a display stand.

ROG Delta II Headset

There is also something new in the headset sector in the form of the ASUS ROG Delta II. Here, too, there is tri-mode connectivity via Bluetooth or 2.4 GHz with ultra-low latency with the wireless ROG SpeedNova technology and a wired 3.5 mm analog connection.

DualFlow audio enables simultaneous audio playback and call switching from two connected 2.4 wireless and Bluetooth devices, while the 50mm titanium-coated diaphragm driver and refined wireless sound signature are said to deliver balanced and detailed sound.

The built-in 10 mm super wideband microphone should ensure clear intelligibility, while the battery life of up to 110 hours is outstanding.

ROG Destrier Core Chair

Also new is the ROG Destrier Core Ergo Gaming Chair, which is a more compact version of the chair of the same name without the Core in the name. It picks up on the exoskeleton design of cyborgs and is just as adjustable as its larger sibling.

In addition, this chair has special modes to raise and rotate the armrests a full 360° into the ideal position for mobile gaming. Made from durable and breathable materials, including polyamide nylon and breathable mesh, ROG Destrier Core offers premium support and comfort during long gaming sessions.

ASUS ROG Mjolnir: Portable power station inspired by Thor’s hammer

The ASUS ROG Mjolnir, which the manufacturer teased in April, is no April Fool’s joke. It is a portable UPS power station that is not only named after the hammer of Thor, the god of thunder, but also looks like it.

The power station has lithium iron phosphate batteries (LiFePO4) with an extended service life and a total capacity of 768 Wh, which supplies an RTX 4080 system with energy for 1 hour of gaming time.

The Mjolnir provides seamless and extended backup power, even during power outages. It offers multiple output options, including USB Type-C 100W fast charging and Qi 2.0 wireless charging with MagSafe compatibility. It is also compatible with solar panels to provide the power you need on the go.

More Computex news from ASUS ROG

But that wasn’t all that ASUS ROG presented at Computex 2024. Among the other innovations are power supply units from the ROG Thor III and ROG Strix Platinum series, with the Thor III complying with the latest ATX 3.1 standard and thus being ideally equipped for PCIe 5.0.

An intelligent voltage stabilizer uses a GPU voltage sensor to ensure a stable power supply to the graphics card and avoid clock drops for smoother performance and gameplay. The power supply also features a turbo mode that delivers maximum cooling power when needed to achieve optimal performance when users choose to massively overclock or run a demanding workload.

Of course, the familiar OLED display is also back, providing real-time information about the system and being magnetically attached so that it can also be removed and repositioned.

The BTF system for wireless looks gets a new addition in the form of the ROG Maximus Hero BTF motherboard, which will support Arrow Lake from the second half of 2024, and the ROG Minimal Tubing AIO Cooler, which is compatible with the BTF solution and is characterized by shortened tubes and a flexible 6.67-inch AMOLED display.

Also new is the ROG Rapture GT-BE19000 gaming router. The elegant device offers cable-like WiFi 7 performance with speeds of up to 19 Gbps. The router supports AFC (Automatic Frequency Coordination), which enables a more powerful 6 GHz WiFi where wireless devices deliver up to 63 times more peak transmission power than Low Power Indoors (LPI).

The router has two 10 Gbit/s ports and four 2.5 Gbit/s ports. Its USB WAN port supports 4G LTE and 5G Mobile Tethering for convenient WAN backup, while the AI WAN detection function allows the router to automatically detect the WAN input and configure itself for smarter setup. The revolutionary Gaming Network built into Guest Network Pro combines all gaming features into a single SSID, providing an unparalleled gaming experience with triple gaming acceleration for all connected devices.
