With the Cherry MX patent change a few years ago, many manufacturers are moving out to make their own changes with some modification. To date, ASUS keyboards have had the original version of the Cherry MX, and much later than now they have decided to launch their own, the fruit of several years of development, with the aim of introducing an incomplete product to the most demanding gamers.
ASUS ROG RX Red, the ASUS version itself
One of the biggest problems with modern equipment replacement is that as the bracket is centered in the center of the switch, the cap tends to “dance”, especially after a period of use. To address this, ASUS designed its ROG RX Red with square shape with four legs
In this way, greater stability is achieved in the transition, and the cap will never “dance”. At the same time, much of the same light is obtained by having no key area covered, and then allowing lighting on all four sides key if you want.
On the other hand, in addition to these machine functions, ASUS has chosen to be activated by sense of sight, Thus bringing high precision and response speed behind each machine.
According to ASUS, this design allows each key to have an average lifetime of more than 100 million keytrokes, far exceeding the strength of the competitive switch. In this case they also show the change of «Network», with line behavior and no response is affected
In this case, you need 40 grams of energy activation, standard for «Red» switches, but power reduction point is limited to 1.5 mm
All of these technologies are integrated with a waterproof case that has allowed ASUS to provide its keyboards with IP56 protection in dust and water, so gamers can be calmer compared to spills or liquids because the keyboard will be able to withstand them completely.
Wide range of ROG STRIX, the first keyboard to equip them
ASUS has already announced its new Scope keyboard family, which will be the first to be equipped with the new ROG RX Red version. and adjustable RGB lighting from the software, and they will come with a variety of features you can see below.
What the manufacturer can say is not the date of acquisition or the price of these new keyboards included in the ROG RX Red switch.
