ASUS Republic of Gamers has announced the release of the ROG Strix Flare, their latest RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard in select markets.

The release of the ROG Strix Flare is currently offered with four different Cherry MX RGB switch types — red, blue, brown and black and promises to  deliver the precise mechanical feel and responsiveness demanded by gamers. The keyboard also features 100% anti-ghosting technology with N-key rollover to ensure all keystrokes are registered reliably, no matter how many keys are pressed simultaneously.

Unrivalled Personalization

One of the more unique features that the Strix Flare gives users a customizable illuminated badge that can be inserted directly into the keyboard. People can keep the pre-installed ROG logo badge or design their own insignia on the provided blank insert and see it flare up with Aura RGB lighting. The badge can be easily customized using paint or printed stickers, or people can seek professional printing or laser etching for a premium touch.

Individually backlit keys are housed in a dual-textured case displaying the signature ROG slash design, and a row of LEDs under both sides of the case creates a vibrant underglow that extends the
customizable lighting beyond the keyboard. Powered by Aura Sync, ROG Strix Flare puts the entire color spectrum and a range of dynamic lighting effects at gamers’ command, enabling them to create a unique color scheme. All onboard lighting can be synchronized with the extensive portfolio of Aura Sync-enabled devices for a truly immersive gaming environment.

Designed for convenience and comfort

While most gaming keyboards place media controls on the upper-right, ROG Strix Flare features its dedicated media keys and a smooth-scrolling volume wheel positioned on the upper left. This gives gamers instant access with their keyboard hand, eliminating the need to take their finger off the trigger to make adjustments mid-game. The keyboard also features a handy USB passthrough port for conveniently connecting other devices and a detachable soft-touch wrist rest for extra comfort.

New ROG Armoury II configuration utility

ROG Strix Flare comes with ROG Armoury II, an enhanced, driver-based version of ROG’s peripheral configuration utility that offers improved controls while using less system resources. ROG Armoury II enables gamers to create profiles, customize colors and lighting effects, map keys, record macros, and even track hardware stats during gameplay for data analysis.

The ROG Strix Flare is curretnly avialable for 9,410 php in PC stores nationwide.
