ASUS Announces a Whole List of New Gaming Accessories
Bohs Hansen / 2 years ago
ASUS is expanding on their Strix brand and not just with one or two new products. We see 5 new products aimed at the hardcore gamers: A new optical mouse, a mechanical keyboard, a headset and two new mouse pads.
Following the recent launches of the Strix Pro gaming headset and Strix R9 280 and GTX 780 graphic cards, ASUS are completing their Strix gaming-gear line-up that “sharpens gamers’ hearing and places everything under their control”.
Strix DSP gaming headset
The Strix DSP is a multi-platform gaming headset that comes with massive 60mm neodymium-magnet drivers and full-size hexagonal ear cushions. The environmental-noise-cancellation (ENC) technology used is said to filter out up to 90% of external noise. The headset is also fold-able for easy transport
The USB plug-and-play audio station that’s part of the Strix DSP package provides true 3D surround sound with Dolby® Headphone and Dolby Pro Logic® IIx technologies and with native 7.1-channel audio to virtual 7.1 surround sound process. It also has what I think is an amazing feature, a dedicated speaker jack and switch so you don’t need to fumble around with software settings.
The compatible is announced with PCs, Macs, the PlayStation® 4 games console and many smartphones and tablets.
The Strix Claw is a 5000 DPI 8 button optical gaming mouse aimed at first-person-shooter gamers. It is using high-quality Omron D2F-01F switches and the DPI is adjustable down to 50 DPI steps. For serious snipers it also has a so called DPI Clutch to instantly reduce the sensitivity for getting that head shot every time.
It has 64KB on-board memory to remember gaming profiles and a small LED indicator for DPI status information.
Strix Tactic Pro
The Strix Tactic Pro is a new mechanical gaming keyboard, available with MX red (light no click), blue (light with click), brown (heavy with click) or black (heavy no click) keys that are rated for 50 million keystrokes.
To prevent ghosting the Strix Tactic Pro features N-Key Rollover with a switch to go back to 6-Key Rollover if needed. You have 13 dedicated macro keys at your disposal and you can chose to reassign F1 to F8 as well, giving you a total of 21 macro keys at your disposal. The keyboard supports both on-the-fly macro recording as well as with the bundled software.
In common with Strix Claw, Strix Pro offers a choice of software or plug-and-play hardware modes, enabling advanced personalization and easy installation for gaming on the go.
Strix Glider Control and Glide Speed
Not every game style benefits from the same surface, so ASUS have made two new mouse pads to work with both optical and laser mice. Both new mouse-pads are manufactured with fray-resistant edges for durability.
The Strix Glide Control is finished with a premium heavy-weave fabric, providing a textured surface for games that require fine control and absolute precision.
Strix Glide Speed is made for game-play that needs fast, efficient movement, with a fine-weave finish that allows the mouse to glide swiftly across the entire pad with zero hindrance.
Thank you ASUS ROG for providing us with this information.
