ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) proudly announces the release of the ROG Falchion RX Low Profile gaming keyboard, a cutting-edge 65% keyboard that earned the prestigious 2024 CES Innovation Award at CES 2024. This ultrathin keyboard, with a mere 26.5 mm profile, ingeniously incorporates arrow and navigation keys within its compact 60% frame.
Armed with pre-lubed ROG RX Red or Blue Low-profile Optical Switches, the Falchion RX Low Profile guarantees wobble-free keystrokes with minimal debounce delay, all while showcasing centralised lighting.
An intuitive multifunction button and interactive touch panel empower users to seamlessly adjust volume, play/pause media, or fine-tune keyboard lighting. Commands are fully customisable through Armoury Crate, enhancing the user’s control. With tri-mode connectivity, users can effortlessly connect to three devices simultaneously via Bluetooth, ROG SpeedNova 2.4 GHz wireless technology, or a wired USB connection.
For added versatility, the Falchion RX Low Profile extends support to MacOS, allowing users to effortlessly toggle between Windows and MacOS modes. Additionally, it comes with a convenient travel cover, offering day-to-day protection against dust, scratches, and general wear and tear.
