Strix Scope RX is Asus ROG’s new gaming keyboard

Take on all comers with ROG Strix Scope RX, the first mechanical RGB gaming keyboard featuring exclusive ROG RX Red Optical Mechanical Switches. These switches provide a 100-million-keystroke lifespan and offer consistent linear keystrokes with an immediate response.

Asus continues in its line of gaming products with its ROG brand, and that is why it brings us a new keyboard with RGB Strix Scope RX, with special dedication to dedicated keys. One of its strengths is the adoption of the increasingly used optical switches for greater speed and precision.

ROG boasts that its Strix Scope RX is the first keyboard with optical-mechanical switches equipped with a square hollow stem and full per-key RGB LED lighting. With this they want to guarantee a practically immediate detection of each keystroke and with a lifespan of about 100 million keystrokes.

The Strix Scope RX keyboard is designed for use in video games and offers the best comfort and performance. For example, the Ctrl key has been modified to be twice as long as usual to make it easier to press as it is a widely used key in first person shooters. Its Stealth key instantly hides all applications and mutes the sound to provide the user with instant privacy

Another novelty of the Strix Scope RX is the incorporation of a QUick Toggle switch to toggle multimedia buttons and Fn functions on the keys in the top row. But it is not only suitable for games, because it also has to be resistant to dust and water with IP56 resistance, and it has a USB 2.0 pass-through port so that we can connect devices such as a mouse, memories or the cable to charge the mobile. Without a doubt, it is one of the most ambitious keyboards that Asus has brought to the market with its ROG gaming brand.
