Following on from the unveiling of the new gaming keyboard Strix CTRL during CES 2019 earlier this year, ASUS has today announced a name change to the Strix Scope and imminent launch. The ROG Strix Scope is a mechanical gaming keyboard with Xccurate Design, offering extra-wide Ctrl key for enhanced precision on FPS battlefields.
Thanks to the intuitive user interface in the Armory II, enhanced driver-based software, gamers can easily create profiles, customise colours and lighting effects, map keys, record macros and more. The Strix Scope gaming keyboard is fully compatible with Cherry MX Red, Brown, Blue, Black, Silent Red and Speed Silver switches. Enabling gamers to configure Strix Scope to play exactly the way they like, wether that be smooth, quiet, linear actuation or tactile clicks.
“Strix Scope’s F12 key has its own unique secondary function, doubling as Stealth. This is a one-touch shortcut that hides all running apps and mute all audio for instant privacy or peace. All keycaps are designed to take full advantage of the ASUS Aura RGB backlighting that’s built in to Strix Scope, with secondary legends that are carefully placed to also be easily visible. The F5-F12 keys even have front-side illumination, so both media controls and F-key legends are clearly lit. The Quick Toggle Switch allows gamers to flip quickly between these two control modes.”
