ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) announced an arsenal of gaming peripherals and gear at CES 2024. ROG strives to transcend the limits of what’s currently possible and its latest offerings are designed to empower gamers with the tools to dominate gaming worlds. These offerings include the ROG Keris II Ace ultralight gaming mouse, ROG Falchion RX Low Profile 65% gaming keyboard, ROG Cetra True Wireless SpeedNova gaming headphones, ROG Carnyx USB condenser microphone, and the ROG Archer ErgoAir Gaming Backpack.

 

ROG Keris II Ace

The ROG Keris II Ace is an ultralight gaming mouse made for competitive gamers and esports athletes. Designed with input and feedback from esports professionals, the Keris II Ace’s sleek, minimalist aesthetic offers the perfect balance of functionality and form. Its environmentally friendly, bio-based nylon shell is derived from renewable castor oil, giving it an overall weight of just 54 grams to significantly reduce wrist fatigue during marathon gaming sessions. The optical microswitches used in the Keris II Ace offer consistent actuation and are extremely durable with a 100-million-click lifespan.

The Keris II Ace is armed with the 42,000-dpi ROG AimPoint Pro optical sensor that offers ultraprecise    < 1% deviation, and it’s sensitive enough to track on glass. Flexible tri-mode connectivity allows users to connect to a device using a wired USB or a 2.4 GHz wireless connection; they can also choose to pair up to three devices simultaneously via Bluetooth. ROG SpeedNova wireless technology enables reliable, low-latency wireless performance and optimized energy efficiency in 2.4 GHz mode. The ROG Omni Receiver allows the Keris II Ace to wirelessly connect to multiple supported devices simultaneously.

The Keris II Ace is compatible with the standalone ROG Polling Rate Booster to deliver supersmooth cursor control – particularly useful during crucial in-game moments. This booster upgrades the 1000 Hz polling rate to up to 4000 Hz in wireless mode or up to 8000 Hz in wired mode. The boosted polling rate reduces input delay to give users better aim control with smoother and more precise cursor placement – a benefit particularly useful during crucial in-game moments. Unlike competitors’ solutions that require an extra receiver, or even a whole new mouse, the ROG Polling Rate Booster enhances polling rate while offering greater flexibility and convenience. Compatible with other ROG devices, this additional accessory provides versatility within the ROG ecosystem.

 

ROG Falchion RX Low Profile

The ROG Falchion RX Low Profile is a compact, 65% gaming keyboard that blends style with performance, cleverly incorporating arrow and navigation keys within its 26.5 mm-profile, 60% frame. With all-new pre-lubed ROG RX Low-Profile optical switches, two silicone dampening layers, and UV-coated ABS keycaps, the Falchion RX Low Profile delivers unprecedented typing and gaming experiences. The ROG RX Low-Profile switches feature a unique hollow square stem, four corner latches, and an X-stabilizer. This combination results in more consistent keystrokes with near-zero debounce delay and less key wobble when compared to other low-profile switches. Additional convenient features include a multi-functional touch panel for intuitive control. Tri-mode connectivity enables the Falchion RX Low Profile to simultaneously connect to up to five devices, with three connections via Bluetooth, and one apiece via 2.4 GHz wireless band and USB. On its own, the ROG Omni Receiver handles the signals from both the keyboard and compatible mouse, allowing users to free up USB ports for other devices. Users can also easily toggle between Windows and MacOS modes. The Falchion RX Low Profile includes a cover to guard against bumps and knocks when on the go, and it keeps dust away when the keyboard is not in use.

ROG Cetra True Wireless SpeedNova

The ROG Cetra True Wireless SpeedNova gaming headphones offer unmatched versatility with Bluetooth connectivity and ROG SpeedNova 2.4 GHz wireless technology to provide users with ultralow-latency gaming audio. Users enjoy high-resolution, 24-bit / 96 kHz audio[1] with lifelike detail that’s further enhanced by Dirac Opteo™ technology. In addition, Adaptive ANC with Auto mode optimizes and adjusts active noise-cancellation levels based on the in-ear fit, the shape of the wearer’s ear canal, and ambient noise — all to ensure full audio immersion. Meanwhile, bone-conduction AI microphones ensure precise voice pick-up for crystal-clear call quality at all times. ROG Cetra True Wireless SpeedNova offers up to 46 hours of battery life[2], wireless charging, quick in-case charging, and customizable ASUS Aura RGB lighting for maximum style.

 

ROG Carnyx

The ROG Carnyx is a professional-grade USB cardioid microphone that features a 25 mm condenser capsule for rich and warm vocal tones, plus a 192 kHz / 24-bit sampling rate to deliver extremely detailed high-fidelity audio. It includes a high-pass filter to reduce low-frequency noise to enhance voice clarity, a pop filter to prevent vocal plosives and a premium metal shock mount that minimizes external vibrations to provide users with clean and uninterrupted recordings. The Carnyx’s intuitive controls include a one-touch mute button, along with a multi-functional control knob to adjust the volume of the microphone and monitoring headset, as well as turn the high-pass filter on/off. Users can also show off their style with customizable Aura Sync RGB light effects that can be paired with compatible products across the ROG ecosystem to give their recording or streaming setup a unique, unified look.

 

ROG Tessen Mobile Controller

The ROG Tessen Mobile Controller features an innovative ROG Foldable Hinge which reduces the controller’s size by half when folded, allowing it to easily slip into a bag or pocket for effortless portability. The rubber support pads of varying thickness and an extended Type-C connector ensure compatibility with Android phones, without having to remove the phone from its case. The Tessen also has two extra on-the-fly programmable rear paddles that allow gamers to execute complicated in-game commands easily.  Additionally, gamers can play while charging their phones simultaneously, thanks to an 18-watt pass-through port.  The premium, ergonomic aesthetic of the Tessen effectively replicates the feel of playing on a gaming console controller. The 18 mm ALPS joysticks offer 22° of movement for precise control. The A, B, X, and Y buttons and D-pad feature exclusive mechanical switches for super-responsive control. Buttons remapping and ROG Button™ customization, as well as Aura Lighting settings, can easily be configured in Armoury Crate. When holding the controller, the RGB light reflects within your hands, creating an exceptionally immersive gaming vibe.

 

ROG Archer ErgoAir Gaming Backpack

The ROG Archer ErgoAir Gaming Backpack features an innovative airflow tunnel back-rest design that provides users with unmatched comfort and support, effectively supporting the wearer’s back and protecting any laptop stored in the internal sleeve. The Archer ErgoAir is made of lightweight and durable 200D nylon fabric, and its cavernous 40-liter capacity allows it to accommodate up to 17-inch laptops. The adjustable roll-top can be used to adjust the external dimensions of the backpack depending on the amount of gear in it. The Archer ErgoAir includes a luggage strap, hidden pockets, and a quick-access side zipper. This incredibly versatile backpack has a full set of accessories including a waterproof rain cover and a pouch. Additionally, the backpack’s modular design allows users to use the cover, waist support belt and elastic cords to create a waist pack or crossbody bag.
