ABOUT ROG RX SWITCH

  • RX Red

LINEAR AND SWIFT

ROG RX Red Optical Mechanical Switches are the first to be developed by ROG. Extensive research, testing and fine-tuning have resulted in switches with a 1.5mm actuation point for lightning-fast inputs. An initial force of 40gf prevents accidental keystrokes, and goes all the way up to 55gf for perfect rebound feedback. ROG RX Red switches provide a smooth and linear feel to give you near instantaneous response the moment you strike the key.
