ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG) today announced the ROG Azoth, the first ROG 75% wireless custom gaming keyboard, bristling with features typically only found on premium DIY keyboards. The ROG Azoth has a built-in 2-inch OLED panel that can show keyboard status, Caps Lock status, connection mode, and PC/Mac mode indicators. It can also display battery level, multimedia info, custom animations, as well as system parameters such as CPU temperature. Intuitive tweaks and settings adjustments can be made via the three-way control knob and a button.
Unique gasket-mount design
A premium gasket-mount design featuring 10 silicone gaskets and three-layer foam dampening gives the ROG Azoth a slightly cushioned feel with sublime acoustics. A durable 3.5 mm-thick silicone pad inside the keyboard absorbs noise, while PORON foam absorbs pings and echoes within the keyboard. Additionally, the silicone-foam-lined base completely eliminates echoes and provides a flat surface for the PORON foam.
ROG NX mechanical switches
The ROG NX mechanical switches used in the ROG Azoth have pre-lubed stems and base housings that offer a smoother click feel and eliminate spring bouncing noises. Plus, ROG-tuned force curves and a fast-actuation design ensure great keystroke feel and consistency. The switches are hot-swappable for a unique and customized feel.
ROG Keyboard Stabilizer
The ROG Keyboard Stabilizer is pre-lubed and specially tuned for gaming: it produces less friction, allowing long keys such as Spacebar, Shift and Enter to stay true to the original switch feel. The Spacebar has extra lubing and modification for enhanced acoustics and feel.
ROG PBT doubleshot keycaps provide a premium feel and offer long-lasting durability. The design of the keys has been optimized with mid-height keycaps and a shorter stem to reduce key wobble and provide more comfortable typing experiences.
Bundled lube kit
The ROG Azoth is the ideal keyboard for those looking to get into keyboard DIY customization. Bundled essentials include Krytox GPL-205-GD0 lubricant, three additional switches, keycap and switch pullers, a switch opener, and a lube rack for switches.
Tri-mode connectivity and other features
ROG SpeedNova wireless technology offers up to 2000+ hours of stable, uninterrupted near-zero-latency gameplay in 2.4 GHz RF mode (with RGB and OLED off). Bluetooth mode enables users to connect the ROG Azoth to three devices simultaneously. Gamers can also charge the Azoth while in play by using the wired USB mode.
The ROG Azoth has two pairs of built-in keyboard feet to provide users with three tilt angles for a comfortable typing position. Plus, a MacOS mode remaps the keys for use with MacBooks and Macs.
