Asus looks to be expanding their reach in the lightweight gaming mouse market with the Asus ROG Keris which will come in two versions – both wired and wireless. While their past products may have failed to capture the attention of FPS gamers, the lighter weight and a bevy of features might make the Keris one to pay attention to. Most interestingly the mouse will feature hotswappable switches which will allow users to easily try out a variety of different aftermarket switches.
The Asus ROG Keris is a lightweight FPS wireless gaming mouse with tri-mode connectivity (wired / 2.4 GHz / Bluetooth), specially tuned ROG 16,000 dpi sensor, exclusive push-fit switch sockets, PBT polymer L/R keys, swappable side buttons, ROG Omni Mouse Feet, ROG Paracord and Aura Sync RGB lighting.
The Keris also features new ROG micro switches offering superior tolerance and consistent click force compared to industry-standard switches. ROG mico switches also improve upon long term reliability and durability but increasing the life span to 70 million clicks and incorporating gold-plated electro-junction.
