ASUS ROG Chakram X Review – The Ultimate Gaming Mouse?

There’s no doubt about it, ASUS really knows how to make a truly high-end gaming mouse. Actually, they’ve got some of the best keyboards and headsets too, and all their other ROG hardware is regarded as some of the best in the world for PC gamers. Of course, that’s often reflected in the price too, with ASUS ROG hardware and peripherals commanding a premium, but as you’ll see in today’s review, you may be paying a lot more, but you’re getting a lot more for your investment too.

ASUS ROG Chakram X

The ROG Chakram X wireless RGB gaming mouse comes equipped with a truly insane next-gen 36,000 DPI ROG AimPoint optical sensor. If that’s not enough for you, it also features a blisteringly fast 8000 Hz polling rate, low-latency tri-mode connectivity (RF 2.4 GHz / Bluetooth / wired), 11 programmable buttons, an analogue joystick and hot-swappable micro switch sockets (mechanical and optical), magnetic panels, plenty of customisation options and it also supports Nvidia Reflex Latency Analyzer. My jaw was hanging open from the DPI level alone, but literally, every aspect of this mouse is the best of the best hardware. So, let’s get to it and take a closer look!

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
