ASUS Republic of Gamers today announced its brand new mechanical gaming keyboard, the ROG Strix Flare. The ROG Strix Flare is a versatile RGB mechanical gaming keyboard that improves upon a well-established formula with exceptional performance and unrivaled personalization features, which will soon to be available in select markets.
Superior gaming performance
The ROG Strix Flare comes available in four different choices of Cherry MX RGB switches (red, blue, brown and black) that meets the demand of gamers in the current market. It also features 100% anti-ghosting technology with N-key rollover to ensure each and every input from the players are registered precisely and without any interruption.
ROG Strix Flare lets gamers experience a new level of personalization with a customizable illuminated badge that can be inserted directly into the keyboard. Gamers can keep the pre-installed ROG logo badge or design their own insignia on the provided blank insert and see it flare up with Aura RGB lighting. The badge can be easily customized using paint or printed stickers, or gamers can seek professional printing or laser etching for a premium touch.
Individually backlit keys are housed in a dual-textured case displaying the signature ROG slash design, and a row of LEDs under both sides of the case creates a vibrant underglow that extends the customizable lighting beyond the keyboard. Powered by Aura Sync, ROG Strix Flare puts the entire color spectrum and a range of dynamic lighting effects at gamers’ command, enabling them to create a unique color scheme. All onboard lighting can be synchronized with the extensive portfolio of Aura Sync-enabled devices for a truly immersive gaming environment.
Designed for convenience and comfort
While most gaming keyboards place media controls on the upper-right, ROG Strix Flare features its dedicated media keys and a smooth-scrolling volume wheel positioned on the upper left. This gives gamers instant access with their keyboard hand,eliminatingthe need to take their finger off the trigger to make adjustments mid-game. The keyboard also features a handy USB pass through port for conveniently connecting other devices and a detachable soft-touch wrist rest for extra comfort.
New ROG Armoury II configuration utility
ROG Strix Flare comes with ROG Armoury II,an enhanced, driver-based version of ROG’s peripheral configuration utility that offers improved controls while using less system resources. ROG Armoury II enables gamers to create profiles, customize colors and lighting effects, map keys, record macros, and even track hardware stats during gameplay for data analysis.
