ROG switches are meticulously designed from the ground up, from actuation force to click ratio, so every keystroke feels unmistakably ROG.

    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.

Light-Speed Actuation

Unlike traditional mechanical switches, the ROG RX optical mechanical switches have near-zero debounce delay that allow your triggers to be ahead of your opponents always.

Wobble-Free Balanced Keypress

The ROG RX optical mechanical switch utilizes a unique hollow square stem, four corner latches and X-stabilizer to eliminate keystroke wobble and ensures consistent keystrokes.

CONSISTENT KEYSTROKE

Under lab conditions, ROG RX optical mechanical switches show little to no force curve deviance when keys are pressed on different areas of the keycap.

    Refined Linear

    ROG NX Snow mechanical switches utilize composite POM material for the stem with PC top housing and POM bottom housing to provide ultra smooth keystrokes, and the walled stem design enhances stability and prevents dust intrusion. Special tuning is also done, coupled with factory pre-lubing, to give the ROG NX Snow keystroke a very solid and clean sound, with “thocky” acoustics.

Consistency Breeds Muscle Memory

Gaming control comes from muscle memory, and your equipment plays a big part in that. The ROG NX Red and NX Brown mechanical switches are tuned to actuate and reset at the same point, while the ROG NX Blue mechanical switches are tuned to a near zero 0.1 mm actuation versus reset point. All ROG switches give you superb trigger and reset consistency, resulting in better gameplay experiences.
