A high-speed USB microcontroller delivers an 8000 Hz polling rate that refreshes input up to 8X faster than competitor keyboards, reducing delay from 1 millisecond to a mere 0.125 ms.
ROG NXMECHANICAL SWITCH
CHERRY MXRGB SWITCH
ROG NX Mechanical Switch
ROG-exclusive gaming switch – ROG NX Mechanical Switch with fast actuation and ROG-tuned force curves for great keystroke feel and feedback.Learn More.
LINEAR & SWIFT
ROG NX Red Mechanical Switches provide a 1.8mm actuation point for fast input. Initial actuation force of 40gf helps prevent accidental keystrokes, and it extends to 55gf for perfect rebound feedback. As a result, keystrokes are instantaneous and have a smooth and linear feel.
ROG NX Brown Mechanical Switches have a 2mm actuation point, as preferred by traditional brown switch users. The tactile force of 58gf combined with a click ratio of 33% gives every keystroke an obvious, more pronounced tactile response.
CLICKY & TACTILE
ROG NX Blue Mechanical Switches feature a 2.3mm actuation point, standard 16% click ratio, and an enthusiast-preferred 65gf tactile force — all to provide firm and superb feedback with each keystroke.
MX RGB switches
Constructed with Cherry MX RGB switches, ROG Strix Flare II Animate delivers the precise mechanical feel preferred by gamers and enthusiasts alike. The premium-quality switches are manufactured in Germany, and are renowned for offering optimal actuation and responsiveness with every keystroke.
Linear response without audible click
Smooth keystrokes with a softer spring for fast and precise actuation
Key-travel distance: 2mm to actuate, 4mm to bottom
Light tactile feedback without audible click
A less-distinct tactile bump than the blue switch, while providing enough feedback for the activation to be felt
Actuation / tactile force: 45g / 55g
Key-travel distance: 2mm to actuate, 4mm to bottom
Strong tactile feedback with an audible click
Distinct tactile bump can be felt easily, providing a satisfying typing experience
Actuation / tactile force: 50g / 60g
Key-travel distance: 2.2mm to actuate, 4mm to bottom
ROG PBT DOUBLESHOT KEYCAPS
ROG PBT Doubleshot Keycaps* provide a unique and premium feel, as well as offer long-lasting durability. Key design has been optimized with mid-height keycaps and a shorter stem to reduce key wobble and provide a more comfortable user experience.* Keycap material may vary by region.
Swap and install your preferred switch type for a unique, customized feel*.* Even though the switches are hot-swappable, we recommend not to swap the switches when the keyboard is turned on to prevent short circuits.
ROG SWITCH STABILIZER
A specially tuned switch stabilizer greatly reduces keystroke friction, compared to traditional stabilizer mechanisms, giving you smooth and stable keystrokes for longer keys such as the Spacebar, Shift, and Enter keys.
Integrated foam absorbs pinging noises and echoes for improved acoustics.
With Aura Sync RGB, the entire color spectrum and a range of dynamic lighting effects are at your command. Individually lit keys allow you to create a keyboard that's uniquely yours.
