We welcome the third generation from the ASUS ROG Gladius mouse and the second generation from the Claymore mechanical keyboard.
ASUS not only made new notebooks for this year’s CES, they also made three new peripherals whose predecessors have been on the market for a few years now. ROG Claymore probably doesn’t need to be introduced to anyone, the product counts as “The Mechanical Keyboard” in the eyes of many people, the device introduced in 2016 was one of the first top keyboards for gamers.
Five years after the introduction of the predecessor, the second-generation model was unveiled, retaining the design of the first version (including the detachable numeric bench) and the button-adjustable RGB lighting, but the design was somewhat renewed. The brushed aluminum cover is one degree cleaner than the previous solution, and the package now includes a magnetically attachable wrist rest with an artificial leather cover.
The biggest improvements were more under the cover. The caps on the new keyboard use the mounting solution already seen on the ROG Strix Scope RX, and below them work the ROG RX Blue optomechanical switches just introduced by the manufacturer, which have a switching point at a depth of 1.5 mm and require a force of 65 g to press.
The Claymore II can be connected to a computer via a USB Type-A to Type-C cable, but wireless fans can also use the 2.4 GHz receiver. In the latter case, the power supply is the responsibility of the built-in battery with a capacity of 4000 mAh, which can operate for 40 hours with the lights on and without it for 100 hours. Of course, thanks to the quick charge, after hanging on a cable for 30 minutes, the moto can run for 8 or 18 hours, depending on the lighting condition. A USB Type-A pass-through port has also been added to the top of the device, so you don’t have to climb to the back of the machine to connect a headphone or a flash drive, for example, and comfortable use is further enhanced by the fold-out legs.
The ROG Gladius II and Gladius II Wireless mice, which are also non-modern chickens, have been updated, and the new versions have been marked by increasing the Roman numerals in the model names to three. The new mice have undergone a complete design change and weight reduction, with the wired model weighing 79 grams and the wireless design weighing 89 grams.
The main difference between the two devices is, of course, the connection method, the basic version can only be used with a cable, while the Wireless variant can also be used via Bluetooth 5.1 HP or 2.4 GHz connection in wired (USB Type-A – Type-C) mode. For the latter, the manufacturer provided a very low delay of less than 1 ms, which they claimed was the best on the market.
The sensor has even been developed, the Gladius III series already features a 19,000 DPI sensor, and of the six buttons on the mice, the switches under the two main buttons sit in an enhanced socket called the ROG Push-Fit Switch Socket II, which allows the easy replacement for both 3 and 5 pines switches. For safety, we find in the box an extra pair of factory Omron switches, as well as a set of spare PTFE bases on the bottom of the mice. The repertoire also includes a built-in memory for 5 profiles and three-zone Aura Sync RGB lighting.
The price of the novelties and the exact date of their launch are not yet known.
