The ASUS ROG Strix Scope keyboard gives more ‘control’ than ever before

ROG Strix Scope 02

Between you and me, most times a headline like that is purely sensational. This is not one of those times, though you really need a bit of context to appreciate it.

Ever played an FPS game? Overwatch, Call of Duty, Battlefield, that sort of thing? Then you’ll know how exasperating it can be to press the wrong key, or worse still, miss it completely.

Well, today’s the day we can toss that problem out the window. Enter the ROG Strix Scope, a mechanical gaming keyboard that’s all about control and precision.

Apart from sporting a design that might leave RGB fans with nosebleeds, this sleek princess also brings an impressive bag of tricks with her. Here’s a quick summary:

  • An extra-wide Xccurate Design CTRL button ensures gamers don’t sprint into a shotgun instead of crouching or going prone.
  • The one-touch Stealth key hides all apps and mutes all audio so users can be secretive about their *cough cough* alone time.
  • An in-built Quick Toggle switches between traditional function keys and media controls so you can be a better Twitch DJ.
  • Cherry MX RGB Mechanical Switches because precision German engineering. Also includes per-key Aura RGB lighting.

Well, at the very least you know where my title came from.

Jokes aside, let’s move on to availability.

Interested buyers are in luck because the ASUS ROG Strix Scope is already available for $269 at all affiliated retailers. Go give it a test to see if it ticks all your gaming keyboard boxes.
