During the live event held at the beginning of the year, in addition to monitors and notebooks, ASUS also presented the new top-of-the-range gaming peripherals branded ROG, designed for the most demanding gamers who do not want to compromise, namely the ROG Claymore II mechanical keyboard and the ROG Gladius III mouse.
Excluding the ultra compact ROG Falchion, still practically unobtainable, the Claymore II is not only the first wireless ROG keyboard, but is also equipped with the brand new and ultra-fast ROG RX Optical Mechanical Switch in Blue or Red version, able to guarantee timing rapid response thanks to the use of an infrared ray which, in short, when the key is pressed, is interrupted for the implementation of the command.
The ROG RX Red switches are ideal for lovers of the most frenetic games who prefer not to have tactile feedback, as they have an actuation point of only 1.5mm and an actuation force of only 40G, while the Blue, with tactile feedback, while maintaining the same actuation point, they are slightly harder and require an actuation force of 60G.
One of the strengths of the first version of the Claymore, that is the removable numeric keypad that can be positioned both on the right and on the left, is also present in the new variant and is equipped with both a steel wheel for managing the audio and four keys fully programmable, particularly suitable for multimedia functions.
Connectable to the PC via USB Type-C cable also for recharging, the Claymore II can be used in 2.4GHz wireless model and guarantees 1ms response times, an autonomy of 40 hours with the lighting system on and 18 hours after only half an hour. charging.
The third iteration of the ROG Gladius, called precisely Gladius III, is available in both wired and wireless versions, which is the subject of our review, and is characterized by a bright RGB lighting system.
The ROG Gladius III Wireless, despite its generous size, weighs only 89 grams and is equipped with Push-Fit Socket II technology that allows you to change switches with extreme simplicity, whether they are mechanical 3pin or optical 5pin.
Capable of reaching a resolution of 26,000 DPI and managing an acceleration of 50G, the Gladius III Wireless can be connected either via cable or with Bluetooth LE or 2.4GHz wireless connection, to as many as three devices at the same time, with the possibility of changing on the fly the station in use.
