While Asus is majorly known for making PC parts like graphics cards, motherboards and monitors, the company has recently started to make other parts such as PC cases and PSUs. Now Asus has released a bunch of new gaming peripherals and PC parts at CES 2020. Here we are going to look into all of them.
Asus Gaming Peripherals And Parts CES 2020
The following are all the new gaming peripherals and parts that Asus has announced at CES 2020 that you need to know of:
ROG Chakram Gaming Mouse
The ROG Chakram gaming mouse is pretty unique. It features Qi wireless charging and even has an analog stick at the side. There are three ways in which you can connect this gaming mouse; wired, 2.4GHz and Bluetooth. The mouse has a max DPI of `16000.
The mouse features fast charging. Plug it in for 15 minutes and get up to 12 hours of charge. It does not have any screws and everything is magnetically held in place. Like other Asus ROG products, this gaming mouse comes with RGB lighting as well.
The mouse has a USB Type-C port which is nice to see as modern devices are now moving to USB Type-C rather than traditional USB ports. This means that you can charge the mouse using the same cable you use for your phone and even your laptop.
ROG Strix Go Gaming Headset
This is a wireless headset that has a USB Type-C port for charging just like the Chakram but you do get an adapter so that you can use it with your Nintendo Switch and other devices. The headset also works with PC, Mac, PS4 and Xbox One.
The headset has a light design and you even get a case for protection included in the box. It features an industry-leading AI noise-canceling microphone and fast charging which gets you 3 hours of continuous use after only 15 minutes of charging. The battery lasts up to 25 hours on a full charge which means that you can use it all day.
The microphone on the headset can be used for mobile communication as well. The premium quality, high battery life and fast charging are going to make this a great option for gamers that are looking for wireless headsets. A wired connection can be used if needed.
ROG Strix Impact II
This is a refresh of the original Impact gaming mouse and is ideal for left-handed and right-handed use. The mouse has a max DPI of 6200 which is not as high as the Chakram but this is what most people are going to use. The mouse has a lightweight design and there is nothing too fancy going on here in terms of design.
The cable is kept light as well in order for a smooth gaming experience. The mouse does have some RGB lighting which can be synced with other parts and peripherals that support the feature. Keeping in mind the design and the specification of this mouse it seems that it is going to be much cheaper than the Chakram.
ROG Strix Scope TKL Deluxe RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard
This keyboard has been designed with first-person shooters in mind. The mechanical keyboard features Cherry MX switches and the left control button is a bit bigger so that you do not press the wrong button by accident in the heat of battle.
The compact design and removable cable allows gamers to take the keyboard wherever the action is. The keyboard even has a privacy button that hides all apps on the screen. You can press it again to restore things back to normal. The keyboard even features a magnetic wrist rest.
ROG Strix 550W Gold Power Supply
Asus has already released 750W and 650W PSUs so it makes sense that the company is now releasing a 550W PSU. This is ideal for gamers that need to power graphics cards such as the RTX 2060 SUPER. This is an 80+ Gold rated power supply and not only is it going to work well, but it also looks great while doing so.
It comes with magnetic logos and stickers so that you can customize the look of the PSU if you are interested in showing it off through your side panel. The double ball-bearing design has double the life of that of oil-sealed bearing design.
The power supply is fully modular which makes cable management very easy and it comes with a 10-year warranty.
Zephyrus G15 With Ryzen 7 4800HS
This laptop has not been officially released at CES 2020 but we have heard about it around the same time so we might get a confirmation at the event. The laptop comes with the AMD Ryzen 7 4800HS, making it the first laptop that we know of to come with this CPU.
On the graphics side, you can pick between the RTX 2060 or the GTX 1660 Ti. Both options come with 6GB of VRAM. The display can be a 1080p IPS 144Hz screen or a 1080p IPS 240Hz screen. Other specifications include up to 32GB DDR4 3200 MHz, 1/0.5TB M.2 NVMe, WiFi6 and a 76Wh 4-cell battery.
